Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez appeared less impressive in the 2020 MotoGP Pre-season test, which took place at the Sepang circuit some time ago.
Even Marquez struggled to penetrate the top ten, his main problem being a left shoulder injury that has not fully recovered.
But the other two drivers, Alex Rins (Suzuki Ecstar) and Danilo Petrucci (Mission Winnow Ducati) do not believe that Marquez has fallen because of his physical condition.
Because Rins believes that the lap time achieved by Marquez and other riders in Malaysia was not a true reflection of the level of competition this season.
“The lap times in Malaysia are also affected by new soft tires and I think he is hiding it a little bit.
I am sure, when in Qatar later, he will emerge as a rider who fights for the leading position, “said Rins as published by Tuttomotoriweb.
In line with Rins, Petrucci also admitted that Marquez is a driver that must be watched out for in all racing series.
“I once defeated Marquez and Rins twice defeated him. In fact, Marquez remains in second place whenever he experiences difficulties.
Marquez will always be another rider’s reference, even when we don’t see his best performance in Sepang.
Even so, it seems like there will be many racers who can perform fast, “exclaimed the Italian rider.
While Marquez himself now confirms that his physical condition is not 100% fit yet, the bike problems have not been fully resolved.
