Funny conversation between Marc Marquez and Jack Miller after the Misano-2 race. The two riders talk about front tire strategy: the Australian acknowledges that he made a mistake in putting the hard tires.
Both Ducati factory team riders have mounted the hard compound on the front. A choice that perhaps turned out to be wrong in the last MotoGP weekend. Pecco Bagnaia argues that there were no alternatives, Jack Miller has a contrary opinion.
The Australian approached the podium to congratulate Marc Marquez and the compound strategy becomes a topic for fun discussion. " You had the balls to put the hard in front ", observed Marc Márquez. “ The balls or stupid? Which of the two? ... The only problem occurred is where I crash - explained Jack Miller -.The rest of the circuit was perfect, turn six wasn't a problem, zero problems. The problem is that there I got a little closer to Pecco, I had to brake a bit at turn 8 and then I got even closer to turn 10. I expected that you too would have put the hard “.
In the last MotoGP round at Misano we saw two Honda on the podium again, which hadn't happened since 2017, since the days of Dani Pedrosa. Team manager Alberto Puig and technical director Takeo Yokoyama arrived to congratulate immediately in the Parc Fermé. Marc Marquez was about to throw in the towel and settle for second place, when the fall of Pecco Bagnaia pushed him to triumph. “ I had already thrown in the towel, I was about to crash - he says warmly -. But it was brutal, then he (Pecco) fell, my body disconnected and I lacked strength everywhere “.
Historic milestone also for Pol Espargarò who won his first podium in MotoGP with Honda. In the Parc Fermé the Granollers rider reveals possible physical complications. “ In the last few laps I had compartment syndrome, I couldn't even stop. I was very tense. The problem is that in the first five laps I got stuck behind Oliveira, we almost touched each other, and I said 'either go ahead now, or you will be screwed' ".
