Marc Marquez Successfully Beats Alex Marquez

RiderTua.com – The atmosphere in the Gresini team garage is good, but the two brothers still have to compete and beat each other.. Even though Marc Marquez is happy to be able to exchange technology again with his brother.. For the second time, the Marquez brothers are teammates in MotoGP. However, the situation is very different in 2024 compared to 2020. When Jorge Lorenzo announced his retirement at the end of the 2019 season, Honda had to immediately find a replacement. They decided on the new Moto2 world champion at that time, Alex Marquez.

Marc Marquez Successfully Beats Alex Marquez

At the end of November 2019, Alex Marquez underwent his first test as a MotoGP rider in Valencia and Jerez. The two winter tests were conducted in Malaysia and Qatar in February 2020. Then the health crisis broke out across the world and everything came to a halt. At that time, Honda brought in Pol Espargaro from KTM. Alex Marquez already knew before his first race that he would lose his place at the factory team and would be deported to the LCR satellite team in 2021.

The season finally started in Jerez in July. Marc Marquez suffered a broken upper right arm in this race. An attempt to return after surgery a week later failed. Marc Marquez has to be absent for the rest of this year. This first weekend in Jerez was the only one where the Marquez brothers competed together as teammates on the factory Honda team. This year they are back together at Gresini-Ducati.

But everything is different now. Alex Marquez was a MotoGP rookie in 2020, now he has gained a year’s experience at the Italian team and knows the Desmosedici. According to him, the team atmosphere was really good (with his brother again), said Marc Marquez with a laugh when asked about the collaboration.

There are also significant differences compared to when Marc was still at Honda, even though they were on different teams, they had time to chat about bikes. When Alex Marquez moves to Gresini in 2023, it will no longer be possible in that form. They can now exchange ideas at the weekend, said Marc Marquez happily about this aspect. This was not possible last year because they were riding different bikes which required different riding styles. Now they can exchange ideas.

However, despite the good atmosphere within the team, the six-time MotoGP world champion also stated that his younger brother was the first person he had to beat. He is his teammate. And so far the 31 year old rider has succeeded. After four weekend races, Marc Marquez has collected 60 points and Alex Marquez 27 points. Gresini is in fourth place in the team standings.
