Livio Suppo

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Motogp Preview -

Rep­sol Honda boss Livio Suppo be­lieves Marc Mar­quez can fight for the Mo­togp ti­tle, de­spite their dif­fi­cult start.

“If you look at Marc’s race pace from the fi­nal day in Qatar, then yes, he can chal­lenge for a win. If the race was to­mor­row, we would have a good chance.

“If I look at the three dif­fer­ent cir­cuits we’ve been to – Sepang was ba­si­cally use­less for us, by Phillip Is­land Marc was very fast, and in Qatar it was OK.”

Ad­mit­ting that not only the pre-sea­son but the whole of 2015 has been tough, Suppo says that ad­ver­sity has made Mar­quez a bet­ter rider.

“Marc is very young, de­spite hav­ing al­ready won two ti­tles. Last year he ar­rived from a sea­son he dom­i­nated, and it was nor­mal that he needed to learn some things from it. It was a very im­por­tant year for him.”

‘Work needs to be done, but we can win again’
