Marc Marquez is certain to be absent in the second MotoGP series at the Andalusian Grand Prix on Sunday (07/26/2020). The absence of the defending champion certainly opens up opportunities for other riders to show off their abilities on the iron horse race track.
Marquez withdrew on the second weekend of the MotoGP season after suffering a problem in his right arm due to an accident that occurred at the Jerez Grand Prix last week. The racer nicknamed The Baby Alien had climbed the operating table, but that was not enough to restore the passion of the Repsol Honda team racer.
The reason is, Marquez is still losing energy from his right arm. Looking at the points on the scoreboard in the MotoGP standings, he is at a disadvantage.
Because of the two early races, he lost points and Marquez predicted could only re-pave at the Brno Circuit, next August. This situation makes Jack Miller more confident looking at the race at the Andalusian GP.
Moreover, Miller claims that the Desmosedici which is his mount fits perfectly with this trajectory. When asked whether Marquez’s absence has changed the way he sees hope of winning the title?
‘Regarding the world champion has changed. So we need to change strategy, and we have to pass each round (Jerez-Andalusia) by winning as many points as possible,’ Miller was quoted as saying from Autosport.
‘We came to a track that I really did well, and we will be able to challenge. And this is the track where Mally goes well, and he won’t be able to take advantage, so I think, as I said, I need to try and get a few points from the absence of Marquez, come to some other tracks with one more year of experience, the GP20 motorbike will be even better, so that has really changed my view of the championship, I’m looking for a few podiums, hopeful five positions in championship, but now.’
‘We will race after race, this is still very early. But for sure, I rather believe I can be a competitor in this regard,’ Miller concluded.
