‘It was not only what he won, but it was also his char­ac­ter’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - MCN THIS WEEK - MARC MAR­QUEZ

“It’s sad news for the whole pad­dock, for the sport, and for all of Spain, be­cause he was a leg­end. I have many mem­o­ries of him, since I ar­rived in the world cham­pi­onship in 2008. He was one of the first le­gends that came to me, and I spent quite a lot of time in his mo­torhome watch­ing races and watch­ing foot­ball – he sup­ported Real Madrid and I sup­port Barcelona! It was not only what he won, but it was also his char­ac­ter that made him spe­cial.”
