It was not his best Friday of the year for Marc Márquez, he believes that tomorrow he can take a step forward in Misano after finishing 14th at the end of the first two free practice sessions of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, a day spent in the rain that was dominated the Australian Ducati, Jack Miller.
After finishing FP2, we spoke with Marc about his Friday at Misano, the new age limit for Moto2 and Moto3 from 2023 and the possibility that his relationship with Valentino Rossi will improve now that the Italian will hang up his boots at the end of era.
But above all Marc Márquez recognizes que legacy of the Italian Rider.
" What Valentino has done for motorcycling has been unique. I think it will be unique, no one I think is within reach of repeating something similar, he was the first to have won a lot, and he has dragged many people to motorcycling. MotoGP has to be grateful to him. I am convinced that next year he will not compete, but the circuits will continue to be largely yellow, perhaps more than half, because he has been racing for many years, a long trajectory and successful, unique. My relationship with him is not good, but I have no problem recognizing it and seeing reality. It is something admirable. "
"Next year he will not compete, these years he competed but we were not direct rivals either. It does not depend on me if the relationship changes or not, it does not matter much to me."
