MADRID, 19 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Spanish MotoGP rider Jorge Martínez (Ducati) was very critical of what happened this Sunday at the Qatar Grand Prix with the tires and made it clear that “it cannot be that a MotoGP World Championship is decided by rubber that does not work” , and although he is clear that it is not something that happened “on purpose”, he did underline the “chance” that it happened to “only one of the contenders for the title.”
“Yes, the situation frustrates me a lot, but I would have been more frustrated if they had beaten me on the track and today it didn’t happen like that, again they beat me outside. I think the level of the tires has to go up a lot, it can’t be that decide a MotoGP World Championship for a tire that doesn’t work and what a coincidence that it only happened to one of the contenders for the title, the rest were going well in terms of tires,” Martín lamented at the ‘DAZN’ microphone
The runner-up in the championship made it clear that he “does not” believe that “at any time” what happened to him “was on purpose.” “But it’s clear that not even they understand why it happens, but it happens. And it makes me angry that it’s me because I’m fighting for a title and a large part of the World Cup has been decided after a year of fighting,” he stressed.
“I hope it wasn’t on purpose, of course, and I hope they improve so that it doesn’t happen to anyone because I wouldn’t wish it on any driver. But hey, these are the conditions we have and we will have to try to defend them in Valencia,” he added. .
Despite the result, the Madrid native is confident “until the end” about his chances for the title next weekend in Cheste (Valencia). “I’m going to try until the end, but I wouldn’t have arrived in Valencia in this situation if it hadn’t been for this rubber, it makes me sad and angry after a year fighting for results and fighting every day to demand myself to the maximum. I think has defined a lot and who will win this championship,” he stressed.
