The European GP showed the great potential that Alex Marquez and Stefan Bradl have built up over the course of the season. The couple aim to deliver when the 2020 season comes to an end.
While his recovery continues, Marc Marquez and the Repsol Honda Team confirm that he will not participate in the remainder of the 2020 MotoGP season and aim to race again in 2021. Working on his recovery program and following the progress of his arm, Marc Marquez in collaboration with Honda, his team and several medical specialists has decided to officially postpone his return until 2021.
Last week, Alex Marquez was the unfortunate victim of a second DNF in two races. The MotoGP rookie fell in the battle for the top ten. Before the fall and throughout the weekend, Alex showed a consistently strong pace abroad on the Honda RC213V, while his impressive growth in the premier class continues. With two wet training days for the European GP, time on the dry track was very tight and Alex is hoping for a dry weekend this time. The goal for week two in Valencia is to keep fighting in the top ten.
Stefan Bradl will close the 2020 season for the Repsol Honda Team. Bradl has achieved strong form with two consecutive points and as Alex has shown himself well over the weekend, especially in the wet. Bradl is aiming for three points in a row and will repeat his run from 2019 when he replaced the injured Jorge Lorenzo.
