Citar:Marc And Álex Márquez Are Brothers And Now MotoGP Teammates

Eight-time world champion Marc Márquez: “Álex is ready to race in MotoGP.”

The 2020 MotoGP season kicked off on Tuesday with two full days of testing at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. With the world title awarded to a dominant Marc Márquez several weeks earlier in Thailand, attention during the final race weekend of the year was laser-focused on one subject: Who would replace retiring five-time world champion Jorge Lorenzo in the factory Repsol Honda team?

Asked at the pre-event press conference about potential teammates, Márquez said Honda had the opportunity to decide between a more experienced or a younger rider. With many riders already contracted through 2020, the most likely candidates were Johann Zarco and Márquez’s brother Álex, the 2019 Moto2 and ’14 Moto3 world champion, who was expected to defend his Moto2 crown with the Marc VDS squad before potentially making the leap to MotoGP in 2021.

Some interpreted Márquez’s statement as an ultimatum to Honda, particularly in light of ongoing contract negotiations for the 2021–’22 seasons; the 26-year-old Spaniard has won six premier-class world titles, all on Honda machinery. Lorenzo’s announcement boosted interest around the second factory RC213V, leading to wild rumors and forcing other teams to answer questions about long-term plans sooner than might be anticipated.

After splitting with KTM months into a two-year contract with the Austrian factory, Zarco replaced the injured Takaaki Nakagami at LCR Honda for the final three races—Australia, Malaysia, and Spain. Riding a 2018 RC213V, the 29-year-old Frenchman qualified 14th, ninth, and 13th, finishing 13th at Phillip Island and crashing at Sepang and Valencia while running within or near the top 10. Zarco has also been linked to a Yamaha test-rider role.

Claude Michy, the promoter of the French Grand Prix at Le Mans, pushed for Zarco, and I believe Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta, in his own way, may have provided the two-time Moto2 world champion with some level of reassurance. Hounded by the media during the race weekend, Repsol Honda team manager Alberto Puig left the door open for Zarco, but privately, he surely couldn’t ignore the interests of the most successful rider in Honda’s history.

Others in the Grand Prix paddock argued that a Márquez family team didn’t make sense—Aleix and Pol Espargaró race in the same class, but brothers have never been MotoGP teammates—particularly given the availability of an experienced rider like Zarco, who earned five MotoGP pole positions and six podiums in two seasons with the Yamaha Tech3 team. Logically, Álex would remain in Moto2 one more season before making the jump to MotoGP.

Pramac Ducati has reportedly shown interest in Álex for 2021, which I believe could be part of a bigger project. Marc has not denied that Ducati also approached him. At the end of the 2020 season, he could have nine titles and perhaps would accept the challenge to chase a 10th on the Italian bike. Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo left Yamaha for Ducati and fell short. Factory Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso has finished second to Márquez three successive seasons.

The relationship between the Márquez brothers, who now share 10 world titles, is special. “It has always been,” father Julià told me. “They do everything together. They train together, they have shared for ages the same room, they support and push each other.” Marc confessed at Sepang that, “Seeing Álex clinching the Moto2 world title was a greater satisfaction than winning my sixth MotoGP title.” He also added, perhaps strategically, “Álex is ready to join MotoGP.”

I believe, in Marc’s eyes, the ultimate dream team is one with his arguably proven brother. But I also understand concerns Honda might have for the astronomical pressure this situation will put on 23-year-old Álex. So not only can Marc be seen as arm wrestling with Honda, he is likely going against Ezpeleta, something riders are careful not to do; even Valentino Rossi respects this unwritten rule. Puig called Honda’s choice, “a good opportunity for [Álex].”

The Márquez family is arguably the winner of this political game. Marc and Álex are the new Repsol Honda dream team. Time will tell all if Honda made the correct decision and if it will be a positive experience for Álex, who has suddenly been catapulted into what many consider to be the most desirable seat in Grand Prix roadracing. But like others who also got their shot, he doesn’t have the luxury of a parachute.

The greatest loser for the moment is Johann Zarco, whose name was absent from the provisional 2020 Grand Prix entry lists—MotoGP, Moto2, and Moto3—published earlier this week by the FIM in conjunction with the two-day test at Valencia. For Zarco, two full-time racing options appear plausible: replacing Álex Márquez in Moto2 at Marc VDS or a possible seat with Reale Avintia Racing on a Ducati GP19.

Porquê?
Não houve alterações significativas nas equipas.
A probabilidade da época 2020 ser idêntica ao que foi 2019 é... elevada.

E não achei que esta época fosse propriamente uma merda. smile

Claro que o título a meio já começava a ganhar forma. Sobretudo depois daquele embrulhanço do Duvidoso com outros na Catalunha.
Mas ainda assim foi uma época com momentos muito porreiros.
Imensas provas a ser decididas até à última curva. Surpresas como o Quartararo. Até a Suzuki ganhou corridas! smiletroll

Pessoalmente acho que para o ano será mais do mesmo.
Com tudo o que de bom e mau isso implica.

As grandes dúvidas será:
Até que ponto na Honda o Marquez mais novo irá fazer melhor que o Lorenzo.
Até que ponto na KTM o Miguel irá fazer melhor que os novos rookies.
cool

Citar:Zarco confirms the move to Avintia and looks for Ducati factory team in 2021

[Imagem: 18_2019_GP18_MG_1832_ZAR_Zarco.jpg]

Johann Zarco is on his way to Reale Avintia in MotoGP, continuing his career in 2020. Since the Valencian GP, ​​the #5 has been pointed at the spanish side after having closed the doors of Repsol Honda.

Now, speaking to the Moto Journal, Zarco confirmed that there is already a deal with Reale Avintia and was assured by Ducati’s CEO Gigi Dall’Igna that it was a good option:

– It is a fact that Luigi Dall’Igna told me he could trust him in deciding to sign for Avintia for next year. As I still doubted the team’s capabilities, I went to see my former mechanic boss, Massimo Brannchini. Massimo told me to trust Luigi. It is Luigi who will be in charge of finding me a good chief mechanic.

On the other hand, the frenchman revealed that he thinks he has signed for Ducati and aims to reach the factory team in 2021: ‘I don’t think I signed with Avintia, but with Ducati. My goal for 2020 isn’t to finish beyond tenth place, to be in the top seven and to be part of the official team by 2021′.
