Alberto Puig explained the reason for picking up Alex Marquez in 2020


Repsol Honda team manager, Alberto Puig, explains the reason for picking up Alex Marquez in 2020. The 23-year-old racer was contracted for one season to fill the position left by Jorge Lorenzo.

Puig emphasized that the process of getting Alex’s signature was time-consuming. In fact, the team even asked Lorenzo’s opinion regarding who is worthy to accompany Marc Marquez next year.

After receiving various inputs, Puig finally dropped Alex’s name as Marquez’s companion. “The process has been going on since we heard all the news and ideas from Jorge. We thought, and finally in the last hours we decided,” Puig explained, quoted from Crash, Wednesday (11/20/2019).

“Basically, we have to understand that the decision has been made based on the results that Alex has given. This is a priority. I mean, he is the Moto2 world champion and this is something that is the starting point for consideration to recruiting him. It is also true that at Honda we are trying to find a racer for the future, the younger generation, and beyond the circumstances that Jorge decided to quit. He believes it can be a good opportunity for Marc Marquez’s younger sibling.

“We believe that if you don’t consider the name, I think every rider who wins a world title deserves this type of opportunity. The only unusual factor here is the family name,” Puig added.

This uniqueness will be displayed by the Repsol Honda team to display siblings in the race for the MotoGP title. And, this is the first time two siblings are in a team.

“It is clear that this is a truly unusual situation. I think we have never seen this in racing. So this is a pretty strange situation. But it is so. I mean, it is clear that if Alex will not achieve the Moto2 world title we will never “offered him this opportunity. But he did it and they are brothers. So next year they will be brothers and rivals,” concluded Puig.
