BARCELONA, September 29 (.) –
MotoGP rider Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda) has stated from Motegi, after the first day of training for the Japanese Grand Prix, that on a mental level he is “tired” of not knowing which team he will race for next year, whether to continue with Honda or with a change of team, although on the track he is clear about what he must do to improve and help the Japanese factory.
“Mentally, not having confirmed where I will race next year is more tiring on a day-to-day basis, but on the track I am able to concentrate and work as best I know how. The goal is to improve the project for the future and try things that can help,” He stated in statements provided by the team.
Márquez finished 14th in Practice on Friday and will have to go through Q1 on Saturday. “The day went well. We had speed, but we couldn’t get in. The first lap was my fault due to track limits, I approached the last lap thinking about lowering the time further and, in the first corner I went to the limit and I fell,” he lamented.
“Today it bothered me not to enter Q2 because there are days when you accept that you don’t have the speed to be there, but, if you have speed and you don’t enter, it makes you a little more angry. Tomorrow we will try, but many things have to be squared away. “, argument.
In this sense, the world champion considered that he now drives “well.” “But in many corners I do it in an unnatural way, but if the bike asks for that, I can adapt. Compared to India, everyone had limitations with grip due to the track conditions and here this once again makes the difference,” he said.
