Marquez: We don’t have the rhythm to fight for victory

Author of the article: , published March 5, 2022.

Marc Marquez was pleased with third place in the qualifiers, but believes he doesn’t have the right pace to fight for victory tomorrow. Even before the start of the racing weekend, the Spaniard denied the possibility that he could fight for victory on Sunday, and repeated these words on Saturday. Despite the solid pace he showed in his fourth free practice, his goal for tomorrow is still to get used to and understand the new Honda motorcycle. Possibly, however, he manages to get involved in the fight to get on the winning podium.

"I am just happy for today. Most with just preparing for the race in the fourth free practice. I had a good rhythm, the lap times were good even when I was completely alone on the track. We'll see how it goes tomorrow. The first race of the new season, so many unknowns will definitely be interesting. ”

“I was far from the best in the morning and very close in the afternoon. That's enough for me. I am not the fastest in terms of rhythm, but I am there so that I can fight for the highest places, but not for victory. Much will depend on the conditions on the track. The Suzuki were fast throughout the weekend and had trouble this afternoon. I feel good, I don't feel pain, which fills me with optimism. "

As he admitted, I still don't quite understand where the limit of the front part of the motorcycle is.

“I haven’t fallen this racing weekend yet. I usually fall at least once in training. This year’s motorcycle requires a different style of riding, especially when cornering. The turn and the exit are much better than in previous years. ”
