Aragon, EN runganSport — Next year a Spanish rider, Jorge Lorenzo will join the Repsol Honda team, playing with another Spanish rider, Marc Marquez.

Neil Hodgson from BT Sport predicts that the Marquez-Lorenzo duet will not last long, it could be that one of them will move to another team.

“Critics will say that the new Marquez is called a true champion if he tests himself at a different manufacturer, but I think it is a waste load,” Hodgson told Express Sport.

“But because of that he will leave Honda at some point, he won’t spend his entire career with Repsol Honda.

“I think Marquez’s departure will not be because Lorenzo is his team-mate,” Hodgson explained.

In these last two races, in San Marino and Aragon, Lorenzo always failed to finish.

Lorenzo explained that the accident at Misano was purely his own fault, in contrast to what happened at Aragon last week.

Lorenzo took part in blaming the prospective tandem for the incident on the first corner of the Aragon circuit.

The conditions of both of them had heated up before finally cooling off after Marquez built further communication with Lorenzo.

Barcelona, EN runganSport — Next year, two riders from Spain, Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez will be team-maet in Repsol Honda.

Two different riding style will use same bike, Honda RC213V.

Will this condition benefit the team or otherwise?

“The top team wants to have the best racer, that’s what it’s behind and we take this chance.

I do not know how other teams handle it. Maybe they will do it differently.

But Honda is preparing the best bike to give to the fastest racer.

Of course it will not be easy, because the race is complicated and the sport is very difficult.

“It’s complicated, but it’s also a challenge and Honda is always looking for a challenge,” Repsol Honda Team Manager, Alberto Puig said Lorenzo and Marquez on the difference style.

“We are not negotiating intensively with many riders, we want to wait and see how the results of development during this season.

We had informal discussions with other drivers. In the end, we made the decision that we thought was right.

We’re working on crew assembly for Lorenzo. It’s not easy, but we have some ideas. Rough scaffolding has stood up, but it’s still not decided,” Puig continued.

Repsol Honda sure will not be troubled by the difference conditions Lorenzo and Marquez later.

Because all this time Dani Pedrosa and Marquez racing are also very different, the development of Honda has been aligned in recent years with a focus on Marquez.

But the aggressive racing style of Marquez and the soft style of Lorenzo also goes in two different directions.

Interesting to see Repsol Honda football next year through Lorenzo and Marquez. (DN/eV)
