Repsol Honda’s Spaniard admitted to the press that this is the toughest season he has ever faced, with a slower recovery than expected: ‘ Of course this is the most difficult season of my career. It’s true that it’s difficult physically and mentally, in many ways, because the potential exists. We arrived in Portimão with low expectations, but I expected the physical condition to improve faster than what is happening ‘.
On the other hand, Márquez pointed out that Honda itself is going through difficulties, with the aim being to finish the season better: ‘ It’s also true that we are working on the bike. As we have seen, all Honda riders have had too many difficulties. On this track, last year [Takaaki] Nakagami and my brother [Álex Márquez] were very fast and this year they had a lot of difficulties – because the other manufacturers have improved their pace and are faster, but we are still setting the same times. We need to keep working. Let’s see. There are still five races to go to finish the 2021 season in good shape and prepare well for 2022 ‘.
