Moto2: Interview with Marc Marquez

"The one here at Phillip Island. We finished third, but getting the title thanks to this result it was my favourite third place ever."

Q:
What have 125cc and Moto2 taught you?

Marc Marquez:
"125cc taught me to be quick on the bike. Moto2, however, is the category of consistency. In Moto2 I have learnt to think on the bike: sometimes you cannot win and must pick up as many points as possible."

Q:
Now we can start talking about MotoGP. What will you miss about Moto2?

Marc Marquez:
“MotoGP is a very different class. In Moto2 the key is scraping fairings, whilst in MotoGP many times it comes down to pulling clear by yourself and the strategies of each rider. At the moment, however, we still have Valencia to go, so we will enjoy ourselves there and then start to think about the future."

Q:
Doohan, Crivillé, Rossi, Stoner, Pedrosa have ridden for the Repsol Honda Team, and now you join the ranks. What does it mean to you?

Marc Marquez:
“It's a dream come true. My dream was always to ride in MotoGP and make a space for myself amongst the best riders in history. Going up to MotoGP with the best team in my first year is a privilege. I thank everyone for giving me the opportunity. I am definitely not going to waste it."

He's given some people plenty of reasons to dislike him. But this Marquez dude is THE most talented rider to enter MotoGP in many many years. Probably not a champion next year, but 2014-, others better be prepared.
