Silverstone, EN runganSport — President of IRTA and boss of Monster Yamaha Tech3 Satellite team, Herve Poncharal stated that several factory teams were hampering plans to postpone the English MotoGP race to Monday from Sunday.

The Frenchman sincerely expressed his apologies to the fans who had been rained all day long (there were around 90,000 people along the Silverstone circuit), hit by the wind and cold because they were always postponed and finally canceled.

The decision to cancel was taken from the proposals of all the drivers, except Jack Miller and Johann Zarco on the grounds that the track was dangerous.

“Only Miller and Zarco are still determined to race in the rain.

Embarrassing. You always have to be behind your driver, they are people who take risks and know the condition of the circuit.

“It’s not a good feeling, we have been waiting all day to try the race,” Poncharal said as loaded by Bike Sport News.

“The riders decided that they did not want to race, it was very unfortunate for the audience.

Then we have the option and opportunity to race on Monday, when the Bank in the UK is still on holiday.

We want that option, we want to race on Monday like what happened in Qatar a few seasons ago.

But the decision must be unanimous, and some factory teams do not want to do the race on Monday, so there is no race,” he complained. (DN /eV)

Silverstone, EN runganSport — Early in the premier class in 2013, Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez was immediately familiar with Movistar Yamaha star Valentino Rossi.

Even both are always compact, both during races and in everyday life.

They also had time to establish trade relations, where various kinds of Marquez Merchandise were displayed in VR46 Apparel stalls.

Not only there, Marquez was also invited by The Doctor to train together at the VR46 troop training center at his Ranch in Tavullia.

But, after the two were involved in the #SepangClash incident at the end of the 2015 season, the relationship was both tenuous and could not return to familiarity until this moment.

Marquez himself claimed to miss the good times with Rossi, including the moment of training together both at Rossi’s headquarters.

“I will never know if I will come back to Rossi Ranch, because now the conditions are different and it feels more difficult,” admitted the Spanish rider as loaded by Tuttomotoriweb.

“From 2014 and then to a beautiful moment when I was at the Rossi Ranch, I remembered everything about that day.

Do you want to invite me? Rossi did not invite me,” Marquez continued.

After the Barcelona series of the 2016 season, it became a turning point for improving the relationship between Marquez and Rossi, which was also motivated by an incident that took the lives of Moto2 young rider, Luis Salom.

But, the relationship between the two is not as beautiful as it once was, now is only a professional relationship as a fellow racer by showing respect for each other.

Will the close relationship between the two of them be able to return to the whole again as the early years of the arrival of The Baby Alien in this premier class? (DN/eV)
