Marc Marquez said clearly that Honda could not develop two completely different MotoGP bikes for Jorge Lorenzo to be competitive next season. Marquez: Honda Will Not Make a Special Engine for Lorenzo!
He also believes that the golden wing team can only make motorcycles with a difference in the chassis and settings only. So that the two racers can be comfortable. And certainly never possible to give Lorenzo a machine with different specifications from other Honda racers. The point is Honda can make a different motorbike but for an impossible engine ..
Only One Engine Spec
When asked whether HRC can satisfy both drivers Marquez answered. “Two machines? no … two motorbikes, yes, “he answered as reported by Marca’s media. “I read the news that if Honda was made for Marc … that’s a lie. And I will say why: it’s clear that drivers who excel in the standings … when starting the season there are no drivers number one and number two, “
In Marquez’s opinion at the start of the second season the Repsol Honda rider had the same opportunity and Honda had the ability to make two evolutions with the same engine, remember the same engine … At Honda this year it has four different chassis and racers can choose. If it doesn’t match one, the racer can choose the other three …
The 2019 MotoGP world champion added that Honda tried its best to try to have a competitive motorbike, as has been done so far, which was not specific to the drivers. But Honda’s priority is to win. And no matter what. They want to win …
Lorenzo moved to Ducati?
When asked Lorenzo’s problem, Marc believes that Jorge has enough talent to overcome this situation. “In his opinion, Lorenzo was right to insist on his idea to fulfill his two-year contract with HRC. Apart from all that is happening now with the lack of adaptation and speed with RC213V ..
“Is Jorge a racer or not when you have a contract with one manufacturer and he tries to move to another. For me if I put myself on the side of the manufacturer, it seems like the racers don’t trust the manufacturer with what we give the drivers. Jorge saw something wrong. That’s normal because when a racer has no way out, look for another. “
Regarding the news of Lorenzo’s return to Ducati which was leaked to the media, Marquez described the conversation between Lorenzo and Ducati as “hot maneuvering” and believed that Lorenzo did not expect the news to be revealed. Although it finally happened: “They didn’t expect it to leak. and it leaked, because the paddock was so small, but he knew how to react quickly. I don’t know whether it is real or not, but if you are a star, it doesn’t feel good and I, as a Honda racer, feel like I’m on the side of a Honda manufacturer. “We are all in the same direction and trying to win,” concluded the Spaniard.
