MotoGP, Martin: "I watched Le Mans 4 times, beating Bagnaia and Marquez gives me added value"

"I'd love to share the garage with Marc one day. Along with Valentino Rossi. He's one of the greatest ever. Being able to battle it out with him is something special. I already feel like doing it. Being his teammate would be brutal."

MotoGP: Martin:

Martin is psyched for the Barcelona Grand Prix, as he still remembers the double win at Le Mans.

"I've watched the race three or four times," he said. "And the pride of being there on the podium first, with the Spanish flag, and having Marquez and Pecco by my side, who were among the greatest in the MotoGP era ... well, there's little to add. That gives me added value. Racing with the fastest, even if the competition is tougher, is like that. My weak point last year was during the beginning of the championship. Now I'm more focused on building a solid base of points and being ready for the final part of the championship, where I know Iìm strong."

Jorge Martin's goal would make anyone weak in the knees: he wants to beat none other than Pecco Bagnaia, with two consecutive world titles, and Marc Marquez.

"Id love to share the garage with Marc one day. Along with Valentino Rossi, he's one of the greatest ever," Jorge recently stated. "To be able to battle it out with him is something special. I already feel like doing it, but being his teammate would be brutal. When you're with him on the track, it's hard to get your wheel in front of him because you know he's going to attack you the next time around."

It's too bad that this won't be possible anytime soon, since they're both vying for the only remaining factory bike in the Ducati garage.

"I've been with Ducati since 2021, from the Pramac satellite team. It would be like closing a perfect cycle. However, it's not up to me, and life isn't fair, that's for sure. I'd like to close the matter now, stay in Ducati, and fight for the title even in 2025. It won't be much longer, even if no one knows what's going to happen."
