Alex Marquez: I can't say I'm going to fight for the championship

New Gresini MotoGP rider Alex Marquez was impressed with the first test. It seems that he will show all that is needed in the new team. "It was a very positive day, from the first run I felt at home on this bike," Marquez said, as quoted by motorsport.com He is aware that the bike has potential, and he will try to use everything that the bike offers him.

The most important thing is that he has the necessary speed, and Marquez will certainly take advantage of that. "We were immediately fast and competitive. That's very important. We didn't actually make any adjustments to the bike all day, we just adjusted ourselves.

That went really well. Winter is going to be too long for me! I need another day to use the potential of this bike. We know this bike definitely has potential. In the qualifying run I was not yet able to ask for everything [from the bike], but I am happy that on the first day with this bike we are only six tenths of first.
Most importantly, I was able to be very consistent in terms of speed."

It is still too early for any forecasts.

Alex Marquez does not want to be optimistic in advance and will think carefully about what to do with his future. However, his team seems to have what he needs at the moment. "It's too early to say, I can't say I'm going to fight for the championship," he added.

"We need to make a very solid base in the winter that we can start well with in Portimao. "We have this 2022 version of the Ducati, so we don't have to try much new. We need to build confidence and see where we have potential."
