Repsol Honda Team Manager, Alberto Puig believes the fight for the MotoGP world title will take place this year. Especially if you look at the composition of racers from Japanese manufacturers.
As is known, the Honda team will field two siblings namely Marc Marquez and Alex Marquez in MotoGP 2020. This is the first time the two siblings are in a team.
Puig said that the six-time world champion in the first class would be thrilled when he saw his biological brother debuting with another motorcycle this year. However, Puig stressed that he did not believe Alex’s arrival could hurt his biological brother.
“Marc will be much more worried if his brother debuts in MotoGP with other teams,” Puig was quoted as saying from AutoSport on Wednesday (1/15/2020).
‘I don’t underdstand how Alex’s arrival can negatively affect Marc. In fact, he is happy. He will only care that the bike is fine. That’s the only thing that affects him and he’s in his head,’ continued Puig.
Speaking about Alex’s assignment on his MotoGP debut, Puig added: ‘I think this is a great opportunity for him. You have to judge him by the level of category and where it ends. The results will determine whether he has done well or not. Alex must work, sacrifice and try. Talent is not controlled, but the effort is.’
Pre-season testing continued at Sepang in Malaysia for three days on 7-9 February. This will be a golden opportunity for Alex to adapt to the RC213V motor
