Marc Márquez has nothing to lose on his fight to get back in the world championship. He needs to win every race until the end of the season but Rossi and Lorenzo are guarding the current world champion. On the second half of 2014 Marc failed too much, but it’s true that he could afford it.
Let’s start on Misano. Last year Marc crashed on his effort for winning the MotoGP title as soon as possible. But Valentino was stronger. The spaniard could take some risks, but this season that would be crazy.
The MotoGP Circus travelled then to Motorland Aragón and Marc failed again. Rain was the main theme in Spain and he tried to win, but riding with slicks over the water was a mistake. Double consecutive zero.
Motegi was the next round and Marc did it. He achieved the MotoGP crown with a second place, behind Jorge lorenzo, who won in Honda’s home circuit.
On Phillip Island, home of the #AustralianGP, Marc crashed. He had not the pressure of winning, but he fell down and he saw another Valentino victory. Rossi is so much stronger in San Marino and Australia.
Marquez’s bad strike ended at Sepang. He won with a two seconds difference. Valentino and Jorge accompanied him on the podium.
The end of the 2014 season came and MotoGP paddock went to Valencia. Probably the most important race for Marc was Moto3, where his brother Álex fought Jack Miller for the world title. And he won the battle.
With the achievement of Álex, Marc just needed to win in order to close a perfect season for Marquez family. And he accomplished winning by almost 3.5 seconds over Valentino Rossi.
Do you think Marc can recover his difference?
