After four consecutive titles, it is another name than that of Marc Marquez that will be added to the MotoGP list. Absent since his fall and his fractured right humerus during the Spanish Grand Prix, first round of the season, the eight-time world champion (six titles in MotoGP, one title in Moto2 and one title in 125cc) is now certain to be unable to defend his crown at the end of the 2020 season. Indeed, the official Honda team confirmed this Tuesday its duo of drivers for the Grand Prix of Aragon, the first of the two races contested in the Motorland, circuit located near Teruel and the name of Marc Marquez does not appear there. Alongside Alex Marquez, who remains on a first podium in the premier class at Le Mans, Stefan Bradl will once again be riding the second RC123V.

Marquez will no longer be able to catch up with Quartararo

If ever Marc Marquez were to resume competition on the occasion of the Grand Prix of Teruel, the second race contested in Aragon on October 25, the Spaniard could not score more than 100 points in the last four races of the season. However, with his ninth place in the French Grand Prix, Fabio Quartararo has reached the total of 115 points scored since the start of the season. As a result, mathematically, Marc Marquez is now guaranteed to lose the world title he won for the sixth time at the 2019 Thai Grand Prix, after a great battle with the French, well placed to succeed him. on the list of MotoGP World Championship. In its press release, Honda confirms that “Marc Marquez is continuing his convalescence at home”, a sign that the number 93 will return in the coming weeks remains uncertain.
