Marquez - "I could have won all three"
The reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez has continually impressed racing fans over the world, at 22 years of age he has worked his way up through the classes with a series of impressive championship wins and in the process developed a riding style that many try to emulate. It is off the circuit that MM93 has also impressed, with a work ethic and passion for the sport most recently demonstrated in sprinting through the pit lane in America to get to his second bike, subsequently bagging pole position on the last lap of qualification.
His respect for other riders was evident in his recent interview regarding the "racing incident" with Valentino Rossi in Argentina. For anyone who missed it, Marquez's front tyre collided with the Yamaha riders rear tyre causing him to crash going into the final lap. The 22 year old said "I am convinced that there was zero intention on my part or Rossi's to cause the accident" and "these things happen in racing, and you have to learn from it."
The Spaniard acknowledges that he is still learning and more importantly has youth on his side - he cryptically commented that some things he "will keep to himself" regarding this incident moving forward.
Currently sitting 30 points behind Rossi, Marquez remains optimistic, commenting he "could have won all three races so far" if luck was on his side and at the upcoming round at Jerez he is hoping to bag his second win of the series and close the gap on current Championship leader Valentino Rossi.
