Marc Marquez: “Pedrosa, Lorenzo and Rossi Are at Another Level, It's Not My Battle”

We start to love Repsol Honda's rookie Marc Marquez, and not only because he has showed some amazing riding during the first 2013 MotoGP tests in Malaysia, but because he seems very focused on his goals and has not let his mind wander in the realm of potential future victories.

For the first time a MotoGP rider, Marquez managed to put out and outstanding performance at Sepang, finishing the three days of tests in the third position twice, in front of Valentino Rossi who was back on his “home team” Yamaha. The third day in Sepang saw Il Dottore switch places with Marquez.

At the same time, the Honda rider took hist first “official” MotoGP fall, crashing in the final turn of the Malaysian track, but making it back in the tests, safe and unhurt. As a reply to the praises received from MotoGP stars Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, a modest and exceptionally clear-minded Marquez replied: "Well, I'm in the ointment quotes, in the end I think Jorge, Dani and Valentino are on another level right now, and it's not my battle. My battle is with the bike, learning, knowing the reactions, gain experience, accumulating miles, and from there gradually come the results. "

We might just start to believe that this rookie might follow in the steps of Rossi and become the new rising star of the MotoGP. In a way, it was high time a rider like Marquez showed up. Adelante, Marc!
