Fans of MotoGP they miss the presence of Marc Márquez in the paddock. The Spanish marked a before and after in the history of the sport, making his debut in the top flight and taking his first title that same year. With the passing of the seasons, Márquez was left with the focus of attention of the fans and according to a Honda official, is the ‘Maradona of motorcycling ‘.
Despite the fact that many point out that Valentino rossi is the best driver in the history of the category, the team manager LCR Honda, Lucio Cecchinello, he had no doubts. Marc Márquez deserves his place in the Olympus of the category. In addition, he pointed out that the team had bad luck in 2020, since with Marc leaving due to his injury, they lost a great chance to fight for victories.
Cecchinello has no doubts about Márquez’s talent. The LCR director pointed out that bad luck, the absence of Spanish and the ‘bad’ distribution of the riders at Honda did not accompany 2020. “Honda did not have a striker, it had the Maradona of motorcycling. The other center forwards were not mature enough. Alex Marquez debuted; Takaaki nakagami he did not have an official motorcycle; Cal crutchlow he broke his wrist in Jerez. If we had had Nakagami with the official Honda and Álex with the maturity of the end of the season, we would have been able to win a grand prize ”, he commented to the site ‘Corsedimoto’.
On the other hand, Cecchinello pointed out that he is hopeful that Marc Márquez will reach the first race of the season with Repsol. Marc has always had the gift of impressing everyone. I hope that I can already be present in the first race. I don’t know if his situation will be consolidated to the point of being able to guarantee him riding the bike. But, surely, in 2021 we will see it. With regard to his competitiveness, he will know how to fight for the podium on his lap and he will be able to win a race, because that is his DNA, his instinct, his talent, ”he praised.
Marc’s brother, Alex Márquez, will be on the LCR team next season. That is why Cecchinello hopes to have the best results with the youngest of the Marquez. «With Álex we are going big because he already showed in his debut that he could fight for the podium. To the amazement of many initiates, he achieved two podiums. We win in terms of motivation, expectations, dreams, desire to achieve better results and regenerated dreams, “he concluded.
