Schwantz: Marquez on probation!

MotoGP News
The champion of the 500cc class of the 1993 season, Kevin Schwantz, believes that Marc Marquez should continue to serve a suspended sentence this season for his “dangerous” driving, so that he would be disqualified in the next similar incident. Current champion Marquez got involved in contact with Aleix Espargaro and Valentino Rossi during the race in Argentina, and the latter found himself on the ground. “I think Marc was punished for his actions,” Schwantz believes. "But we should give him a suspended sentence until the end of the season, so if for any reason he touches another racer again through no fault of his own, he would have to end the race early. The thing is, even if it was a mistake where he braked too late and he was too fast in the turn for the given conditions on the track, he is still a world champion and he knows what he is doing, t

Kevin Schwantz believes that Suzuki should prioritize a replacement for Andrea Iannone for the 2019 season, who should lead the team with his experience, but he does not do that, and at the same time he does not try to get the most out of the motorcycle. After four seasons with Ducati, Iannone switched to Suzuki last year, where he received a lot of criticism at the expense of his form. There were even rumors that he might lose his racing seat at Suzuki, and then the Italian was a bit surprised in the last races of the season. But the legendary Schwantz was not convinced by the late reversal. “As the team’s leading racer, you have to work one hundred percent all the time,” explained the champion of the 500cc class of the 1993 season.

Legendary Kevin Schwantz has placed friendly advice on current world champion Marc Marquez. The Spaniard, who is known for always riding on the verge of falling, fell 27 times last season, which, with the exception of Sam Lowes, is the most among all riders in the MotoGP class. The six-time world champion also almost fell in the last race of the season in Valencia, where he had to finish in one of the first eleven places to win the world title. Both in Valencia and earlier in the season, Marquez managed to keep the motorcycle on two wheels, although the situation seemed unsolvable and Schwantz admitted to admiring his abilities. But the champion of the 500cc class of the 1993 season warned the Spaniard that he risks serious injuries with such a ride. "A way needs to be found

After the win at Silverstone, Maverick Vinales could soon regret moving to Yamaha next season. The Yamaha team started the season with an engine that was the best on most racetracks. After the race in Great Britain, the first racer of the team, Valentino Rossi, said that he thought that the competitors at Honda, Ducati and Suzuki had already put better engines on the track, which was also supported by the fact that he and his teammate Jorge Lorenzo on the dry track they had quite a bit of trouble keeping up with the leading racers. The exact opposite signals are coming from the Suzuki camp. After his first victory in the MotoGP class, Vinales said his team was able to find some solutions to the problems of excessive rear tire wear that made them uncompetitive in previous races. The fact that the form S
