Senor Marquez, Marc's comments about the technical direction of MotoGP in relation to F1:
Marquez: MotoGP mustn't become like F1 where machinery matters more
Marc Marquez has warned MotoGP “needs to be careful” not to become like Formula 1, where he believes it’s become harder for drivers to make the difference over their cars.
"Marquez, who had a fourth major operation on the right arm he badly broke in 2020 earlier this year and missed six races in 2022, explained that MotoGP bikes, with all of the latest developments, are becoming "less manual" which has led to a much closer field.
"The thing is now is everything is more equal, because the limit is the bike," he added.
"It's true that in the past between official bike and satellite bike, the difference was bigger.
"Now there's no difference. The satellite teams have official bikes. So, they have the tools.
"But what happened, and you will understand immediately? Before I arrived in MotoGP, when you put fourth gear on a straight, you were not at full torque, because you were playing with the wheelie, with the rear brake, with the torque, with the body position.
"Now, you go out and already in second gear and third gear with the holeshot [device], with the aerodynamics, you have full torque and you are [tucked] in like [you are on] a Moto3 bike.
"So, the bikes are less manual. Before it was more manual, and you had to play with more things.
"So, for that reason everything is more equal now because if it's more manual then you will do more mistakes and it's more difficult to take profit of all the bike. If the limit is there [it's easier]."
