Tech3 boss and IRTA president Herve Poncharal, in an interview with crash.net, recalled the most impressive race in which Marc Marquez performed a miracle. That happened three years ago in Jerez, and many still remember the great performance of the Spaniard.
Poncharal could not believe what he was seeing and witnessing. Even then, Marquez gave confirmation of the quality he possesses. “One of the most amazing performances that I ever saw in my life - and I’ve seen every grand prix since 1985 - was Jerez 2020,”- he said, as quoted by crash.net “After Marc went into the gravel trap early in the race and returned almost in last, the way he passed everyone - and was even catching Fabio - was incredible.
I couldn’t believe my eyes. Nobody has ever had that superiority, I think. Even at the time of Freddie [Spencer], when the factory bikes were quite different [to the Independent bikes]. Now the bikes are more even, closer." Although after that, Marc had huge problems, Poncharal believes that the Spaniard is one of the best drivers.
“Okay, Marc didn’t finish, and after that amazing race, he's been through unbelievable difficulties. But nobody else has impressed me like that. That was an incredible performance and a show of the level of Marc’s talent”.
After many surgeries on his hand, Marc Marquez is ready to show his qualities again. Many hope that he will manage to be in the same shape as before. Real Moto GP fans really miss Marquez. “[Marquez's arm] being back to full fitness is good news for him and the championship,” -Poncharal said.
“Marc is one of the top characters, clearly. He's maybe the most famous rider we have on the grid now, also when you think about things like the ‘All In’ series on Amazon. I will never rule out Marc for the podium or winning races”.
