In the recent past, there have been an increasing number of stories about Marc Marquez's future and his decisions. Alberto Puig, the Honda MotoGP boss, shocked many when he stated a few days ago in an interview that the Spaniard can leave the team at the end of the season, despite the fact that he is contractually bound with Honda until 2024.
However, Puig does not expect Marquez to leave the team anytime soon. “We have a contract, but every person is free to do what they want in life. And Honda is not a company that wants to have people who are not happy being at Honda.
So, of course we have a contract, but Honda respects Marc a lot. I want to think [he will stay] based on the contract, but I don’t have a [magic wand]”. - Puig said, as quoted by motorsport.com
Marc Marquez's reaction
It didn't take long for the reaction of Marc Marquez, who didn't have much to say.
As he pointed out, these are the toughest moments in his career, but he was very thankful for the support he received from the people around him. “So now I am in a big moment and I cannot think about this. You cannot decide things about your future when you are in such a condition.
During this month and a half I need to rebuild my body and the mental side. I am in one of the worst moments of my career. But I’m very lucky that I am in one of the best moments in my personal life, with a very good team around me.
Everything is stable and this helps a lot." Marquez believes that many talks will be necessary in order to improve things and make certain decisions. “So now I need to think, to breathe, to speak with my people… and then I need to ride the bike again.
I’ll try to start at Silverstone with the same commitment as in Portimao [the season opener]. Obviously there will be a different approach, but the same commitment”.
