The comeback, the comeback, the return of the eight-time motorcycling world champion, Marc Márquez (Honda)which coincided, perhaps not so much by chance, with the record number of spectators in the 1,000 grand prix weekends, with 278,805 fans, has begun to revolutionize and shake up a championship, a title, which once again was clear and unique favorite in the world champion, the Italian ‘Pecco’ Bagnaia already its powerful Ducati ‘Desmosedici’.
The performance, behaviour, bravery, courage, passion and determination that Márquez demonstrated throughout the weekend, after spending a month and a half without touching a racing motorcycle, who is the only rider in the news that, despite its already 30 years, can change the course of a World Cup where there is little response to the power of Bagnaia and the Borgo Panigale factory.
Márquez was one second away from winning pole position, which Bagnaia took from him on the last lap. Márquez achieved second position on the grid. On Saturday he was fifth in the sprint race, always close to the podium. And, on Sunday, he crashed with two laps to go, after an extraordinary race, always in front, when he was fighting, of course, with two official Ducati, that of Jorge Martin y Johann Zarco.
“Marc has had a fantastic race”, he proudly acknowledged Alberto Puig, Team Manager of the Repsol Honda team. “Unfortunately, at the end he was chasing the podium and he knew Johann Zarco was right behind him, ready to push and overtake for more top speed, so he had to keep fighting. The character of a champion is to always try to make the most of any situation, which is exactly what Marc did. I think he is riding at the same level as before he was injured three years ago. He has driven magnificently and has done everything he could with what he had.”
“Intentionally or unintentionally, fighting, risking, despising the possibility of scoring”, he writes Matthew Garlic On gpone.it, “Márquez returned home with no points, devastated after a great race, but we are already certain that MotoGP has recovered its great protagonist”. Paul Scalera, one of the veteran World Cup journalists, writes in the same direction: “You can like it more or less, but you don’t win eight world titles like Marc Márquez without character. And those athletes with character are not liked by everyone because, like Marc, they don’t care about being liked, they only care about winning”.
“Marc’s touch with ‘Pecco’? A simple racing contact. We love warrior riders like Marc”undefined Davide Tardozzi / Ducati Corse Team Manager
Davide Tardozzi, one of the people in charge of the powerful and champion Ducati Corse team and one of the great admirers of Marc Márquez since his brilliant appearance in the 2013 MotoGP World Championship, which the Catalan won breaking all the precociousness records in the highest category, defended the Catalan even when he collided with his champion Bagnaia in the race to the ‘sprint’ on Saturday. “The battle with Marc is a race contact. These actions are part of our sport and, furthermore, we love warrior pilots like Marc”.
Praise from a Grandson
fonsi grandsonone of the most valued ‘coaches’ in the MotoGP ‘paddock’, which has Jorge Martín (Ducati) from Madrid in fourth position in the Drivers’ World Championship, just 14 points behind Bagnaia, when they remain to be played, nothing more and nothing less than 555 pointspraises the manner, style and character of Márquez, especially after witnessing how he resisted, after a month and a half without touching the bike, the overtaking of his pupil in the race on Sunday.
“When Márquez is in the equation”, Fonsi pointed out to the newspaper As, “the controversy is multiplied by how ‘crack’ it is. For all of us fighting a guy like him on the track is something very nice. For him it is a task that the pilots are motivated to beat him more than anyone else. When you beat Marc, everyone comes out stronger. The truth is that it is a pity that Jorge (Martín) went to the ground as soon as Jorge (Martín) passed him, because we all knew that he would try to pass Jorge again. Marc never, ever throws in the towel because if he did, he wouldn’t be Marc”.
