A few more days of waiting and MotoGP will be back on track at Jerez where a non-stop sprint season gets underway. The Spanish track will give the first indications and there is a great deal of curiosity to know who will be the most in shape after a long period of inactivity.
Jorge Lorenzo has been making his prediction on motogp.com.
“Obviously, Marc is the favourite. He has always won since 2013, with the exception of one year in which I won. This says it all - explained the Majorcan - He arrived in MotoGP and won as a rookie. And after that, it has happened almost every year. He is the Toni Bou of MotoGP. Right now, Marc is superior to others and it is difficult for the others to beat him, but things can change. "
Lorenzo has no doubts about Marc's value, but he does have some on the Honda and this help to shuffle the cards
"Unlike trial, the bike is more important in MotoGP – he continued his comparison with Bou – A lot of things matter: engine, chassis, electronics, if Marc had some problems with the bike or Honda was not competitive enough, he could be in difficulty against Quartararo's Yamaha, which is very strong and fast, or against Maverick, who is now in a very strong mental position. Nor should Dovi, Valentino or Rins with Suzuki be ignored. I repeat. It depends on the bike. If the Honda is competitive, Marc is the favourite. If the bike suffers, he could lose the title ”.
