Marc Márquez has been one of the protagonists of the official press conference of the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez, a kind of return to the scene of the events, to the circuit where nine months ago he suffered the worst of his injuries from which little by little is coming out. It maintains the same profile of Portimao, without throwing the bells to the flight and going ‘race to race’, the best of the philosophies.
YOUR PHYSICAL STATE
“I am calmer. I see it as a normal weekend. My physical situation is very similar. My goal is to have more stability in my physical condition during the weekend on a circuit that I know well. I have had more good memories of Jerez than bad. We do not set a specific goal, simply ride the bike, win in the taxi and the kilometers and feel better.We already know where we have the limit, which is not on the bike or the tires but on myself, we already know where we need to improve but we need time and kilometers on the bike “
WHAT IT HAS DONE AFTER PORTUGAL
“From Portimao here, I have trained a little: gym, cycling, calmly. My body was asking me to relax because one thing is the bone or the muscles and another thing is that I am taking a lot of antibiotics and it takes time. It’s hard to feel like this at 28 years old, when they take them away it will be easier. I was at home, more relaxed ”.
SEE THE PORTIMAO RACE REPEATED
“Yes I saw her. My body position was not correct in the curves to the right. The right elbow is not working very well in the last two corners and at the beginning they all roasted me because I was not in my correct position, but when I was I was able to do kilometers. It is my preseason and I need to do kilometers. My riding will improve, I need more laps ”.
IF YOU WILL ASK FOR CHANGES IN THE HONDA
“It is true that Honda is working to bring in new parts. The limit is my physique. I will start with a motorcycle very similar to the one in Portimao. If I feel good, I will try new things. Honda is in a difficult situation for so long without podiums and victories. We will return to the top as soon as possible. “
THE CYBER BULLYING
“The networks can be very positive because they bring you closer to the fans, but, depending on the person, they can also make you feel very bad. In the accounts they should put their ID or passport. That is why I do not read much on the networks, you can waste a lot of time. I have a person who tells me when there are important comments. Since 2015 I have withdrawn it from my life. I take care of it, but without spending a lot of time on it ”.
THE GENERATIONAL CHANGE
“Of course there is. Sport is like that and life is like that. Young talents from Moto2 arrive. I still feel young. I still feel well motivated. After a year away, quite a few things have changed and it’s interesting to watch. I still feel competitive. When I don’t feel competitive to win races, I’ll stay at home ”.
THE JOKE ON LORENZO AND HIS LAMBORGHINI
“I saw it. It was a good joke. I have a good relationship with him. Now that he remembers 2013 on his channel, I think that at the last corner he should have shouted like in the video. It’s a joke. I can’t imagine myself in a situation like this ”.
CHANGES AFTER INJURY
“The way of approaching the races is the same: if you want to win, you have to take risks. What I have learned is that you must take care of your body. Maybe before I prioritized the races to my body ”.
IF ACOSTA HAS TO BOARD MOTOGP WITHOUT MOTO2
“My philosophy is to go step by step. When you feel that Moto3 is too small for you, go up to Moto2. It will not be his decision, being 16 years old, but his team’s. We have all burned many drivers for putting too much pressure. He can win this World Cup, but let him enjoy it and it will come ”.
