Alex Marquez will be part of the Gresini Ducati team in 2023. It seems that the Spaniard is happy where he is at the moment. However, things were not exactly ideal for him, that is, the ideas of the leader of his former team.
Before his rookie season (2020), Honda decided to move him out to LCR, which he was not happy about. “Honestly, in that moment I did not really agree with that decision,” he said, as quoted by motorsport.com “But I respected it, and I understood the position of Honda.
But the past we cannot change. That decision was a little bit hard for me, and I didn’t feel productive inside LCR for Honda – not for the team, for Honda. So, I had many days there where I was like ‘Ok, I can help’.
Honda didn’t take profit of me. At that moment it was hard for me, but I needed to accept. I learned a lot, I’m grateful to Honda, they gave the opportunity to me. The past we cannot change, we can just look to the future”.

However, Marquez did not forget some positive things about Honda. Marquez is grateful for the chance they gave him, and it must be admitted that he had many nice moments there as well. “Always I had a good relationship with Honda,” he said.
“I didn’t have any problems. It’s not the same in the satellite team and the factory team. Ok, your contract can be factory but it’s not exactly the same. The satellite team, always new pieces arrive later, and when you have a bike with a lot of problems you can feel it a lot.
But my relationship with Honda will always be great, I will always be grateful because they gave me the opportunity to jump to MotoGP. I won with them in Moto3”.
