The wait will be long, but the show is assured. MotoGP tucks its final stage, and does so with current information focused on the encounter lived in and out of the track at Sepang between Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez, who will face off this weekend at Ricardo Tormo circuit in what some people -supporters and experts- have already seen ‘the race of the century’.
In that sense, the pilot born in Cervera warned Tuesday that he only thinks of fighting for the win in Valencia, where only Jorge Lorenzo and Rossi come as candidates to win the championship. “We want to finish on a high note, so we have to work hard from Friday to achieve a good set-up and take a chance in the race,” said the first sword of Honda.
Marquez admitted, moreover, that the last days have not exactly been easier for him: “It’s been a tough week after what happened in Malaysia but I have done everything possible to leave it behind“. And referring to the reunion that will live with ‘Il Dottore’ at the meeting on Sunday, he called for calm, saying “I hope that what happened last week is left behind and we can focus on the race“.
Will Marquez have a leading role in the struggle of Lorenzo and Rossi for taking up the throne? The answer, in the next and final episode.
