Marc Márquez Predicts Return to International Motorcycle Racing Championships, Announces Intention to Win Further World Cup Title

Marc Marquez: Surprising Performance, Uncertain World Championship Chances

Racing ace Marc Marquez is known for his incredible performances on the track, but his recent performance at Sachsenring has raised questions about his chances of winning the world championship. Despite posting an impressive comeback, Marquez confessed that he is struggling to keep pace with his rivals, particularly Pecco Bagnaia and Jorge Martin, who are consistently faster and more reliable.

Title Contender Doubts

In an exclusive interview, Marquez revealed that he no longer sees himself as a title contender this season. "The world championship? People tell me that. I’ve been close, but you have to see the reality. And the reality is that how am I going to be in the fight if I’m saving on Sundays, if I’m going out, if I’m doing this or that?"

Pecco and Jorge Ahead of the Pack

Marquez conceded that Pecco and Jorge have a significant edge over him and other riders, citing their mental stability, consistent results, and momentum. "Right now, I see Pecco stronger. He has the mental stability and the results. He’s gaining momentum, which can change in two races, but it’s halfway there."

Targeting Top Three Finish

Marquez’s objective for this season is to finish among the top three riders, a goal he believes is achievable despite the challenges he faces. However, he acknowledges that it won’t be easy, particularly given the strong form of Bastianini.

Honda Departure and Ducati Signaling

Marquez’s decision to join Ducati was motivated by a desire to return to a competitive team. Ducati was willing to take a gamble on him, recognizing his progress and potential to excel with the official bike. Marquez revealed that KTM and Aprilia were also in the running, but he opted for Ducati due to his conviction in the team’s abilities.

Working with Pecco Bagnaia

Marquez expressed a mixture of respect and competitive spirit in his assessment of his new teammate, Pecco Bagnaia. "If I were him, I would take it on as a challenge. The rider with the most world championships on the grid is put next to me on the same bike and I am going to show people that I can beat him…"

Ducati’s Losses

Marquez believes that four Yamahas on the track, in addition to the Ducatis, creates a more balanced and competitive MotoGP Championship. He acknowledged that losing two Ducati bikes may have negative consequences, but emphasized the importance of variety and competition.

Sponsor Concerns

Marquez’s decision to prioritize his sporting career over sponsorship ties has raised concerns about his partnership with Red Bull. However, he expressed a desire to continue working with the company, acknowledging that it is not entirely up to him.

Overall, Marc Marquez’s comments highlight his doubts about his world championship chances and his focus on finishing among the top three riders. His determination to succeed on the track and his commitment to Ducati bode well for the remainder of the season.
