Eight-time World Champion, Marc Marquez hopes that the Petronas Yamaha SRT Team Rider Fabio Quartararo can appear even more fierce in the MotoGP event this season. He wondered why the man from France struggled after dominating the first two series.
Previously, Fabio Quartararo was predicted to be one of the winning candidates in the MotoGP event this season. Not surprisingly, he appeared to dominate the first two series at Jerez by being the fastest.
But slowly, the Petronas Yamaha SRT Team rider seemed to lose his best performance in the following series. As a result, the top position of the standings was taken over by Andrea Dovizioso.
However, Ducati Riders also appeared less impressive in the last two series, including yesterday’s Emilia Romagna series. This made Marc Marquez, who initially championed the two riders, changed his mind.
He really hopes that both of them, especially Fabio Quartararo, can appear even more fierce this season, especially since El Diablo won the first two series.
“It’s hard to say that my opinion is still the same, but it’s true that I mentioned Dovi and Fabio in Austria. But to be honest, I expect more from them.”
“Especially from Fabio, I had a lot more hopes for him because he won the first two races at an amazing level. But now, I don’t know what happened to him. He struggled a lot, even at one of his strongest points: qualification, “said the eight-time world champion.
However, along with the decline in the performance of the two riders, Marc Marquez predicts that the competition for the title this season will be much more interesting.
“Dovi is still consistent, he is fighting, but he needs more speed if he wants to win the title. Then, we’ll see Maverick, there is Joan …”
“We have 8-9 riders who are only 25 points away, so it will be interesting until the end of the season. I will also try to feel the atmosphere from inside the track! “Concluded Marquez.
Indeed, currently Dovizioso who is at the top of the standings is only one point ahead of Quartararo and Vinales, who are in 2nd and 3rd positions respectively.
