Marc Marquez challenged Lewis Hamilton to a duelAugust 25, 2019
Five-time MotoGP champion Marc Marquez hopes to fight with Lewis Hamilton in a full-time duel on the track, suggesting the Mercedes rider to measure strength on both two and four wheels.
Both have dominated their sports over the past years, both have five victories in the most prestigious classes (Marquez also won the championship twice in youth categories, but Hamilton also has many achievements in junior formulas), and now the 26-year-old Spanish motorcycle racer , and the British Mercedes pilot are on their way to their sixth titles. According to Marquez, he would love to compete with Hamilton.
“Of course, that would be interesting! One-on-one, first on a Formula 1 car, and then on motorcycles, because I know that he also rides them, ”said Mark, one of the most successful riders in the history of motorsport. – We sometimes communicate with him through social networks, and I know that he rides on motorcycles, and not bad. So I would love to meet with him, if only in order to get acquainted personally. Last year we almost met, but it did not work out.
I participated in tests on the Red Bull Ring and drove a Toro Rosso. I really liked that experience. I drove 40 laps, these were real tests. I had speed, but not enough experience. I knew the configuration of the track, although it was most difficult for me to understand the braking points and the use of downforce.
On a regular track, you can still drive a Formula 1 car, you can find the limit of what is possible, but in the city center, for example, in Monaco, it’s already more difficult. “
After 11 stages of the season, Marc Marquez with a significant margin of 58 points leads in the personal standings of MotoGP, and this weekend at Silverstone will be the motorsport Grand Prix of Great Britain, in which he expects a good result.
