Marc Marquez, before his significant departure from Honda, has expressed a strong desire to support Alberto Puig, who appears to be in a precarious position within the Repsol Honda team. Marquez’s advocacy for Puig suggests that Puig’s role in the team might be under scrutiny.
The relationship between Marquez and Puig has been a mutually beneficial one, with each playing a significant role in the other’s career. This close bond has even extended to Marquez’s recent change in direction, as he prepares to start working with his future Ducati Gresini team from the first test of the 2024 off-season, scheduled for November 28.
However, Puig’s future with Honda remains uncertain, especially with Marquez’s impending departure and the fact that Puig has yet to propose names for the second RC213V rider, with the first MotoGP test for the upcoming season looming.
Marquez has spoken out in defense of Puig, describing him as an honest person who sometimes may have few friends due to his straightforward nature. Marquez views Puig as a fundamental figure at Honda, open to discussion and essential to the team’s project. He emphasized that Puig has excellent ideas for Honda’s future and insisted that making Puig a scapegoat would be a mistake. According to Marquez, Puig has always been clear and had a project in mind, some aspects of which have been implemented, while others have not. Marquez appreciates Puig’s ideas and believes that dismissing him would be an error.
This situation highlights the intricate dynamics within MotoGP teams and the importance of strong leadership and vision for the future, especially in a high-stakes, competitive environment like MotoGP.
