Barcelona, EN runganSport — Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez is currently 72 points ahead in the standings from his closest competitor, Andrea Dovizioso.
Marquez has a good chance to lock the world title this season at the upcoming Japan MotoGP.
But, there is still hope for Dovi to catch up with Marquez, because in any race it can happen.
Marquez himself admitted that he could lose the chance for the title this season if he was not careful.
“The work has not been completed, and this will not be finished until my points are not overtaken again.
I can make mistakes, so we must be careful and stay focused,” Marquez said.
“So, this year we need to focus and keep working. In MotoGP, anything can happen, we can make mistakes, we can experience mechanical problems, human errors, track conditions, and weather.
We have to work hard and stay focused on opportunities to win races.
“I always start the weekend with enthusiasm to win and then see what happens on Sunday, and we will continue to do it,” continued the Spanish rider.
Meanwhile Dovi seems to be realistic by not really hoping to win the title this season.
Dovi’s focus is only to win the race.
“To catch 72 points in five races is not possible. The only way is if he is not racing, even though the conditions will still be difficult!
If we want to be realistic, everything can happen in the race and mathematically the opportunity is still open,” said Dovi. (DN/eV)
