“This year we spent more time on the track, more time between races so we don’t return home. It would have been better if he was here to train,” said Alex Marquez as quoted by BolaSport.com from The Race.
“But, I also tried to decide with my assistant, Emilio (Alzamora, manager), with my father. I also try to use the free time we have,” said Alex.
“For me, this is a strange situation because from the first day in the paddock I was with him. (Marc) was by my side, so now it’s a bit strange. With these conditions we have to keep trying. This is not an excuse not to have a good performance. “
Alex Marquez youth also said he has missed his brother from a competitive point of view.
“He is the best reference you can have on track and data because he is the strongest MotoGP racer and factory Honda rider,” admitted Alex.
