He’s the only man to beat Mar­quez

MCN - - MOTOGP -

Lorenzo is still the only rider on the grid to beat Marc Mar­quez in a cham­pi­onship bat­tle when he took the ti­tle in 2015. Honda also know that Lorenzo and Du­cati would have been a force to be reck­oned with in 2019 with some omi­nous signs in 2018 that the bike had fi­nally been adapted to suit his style. Poach­ing him from them (or from a ru­moured re­turn to Yamaha with the Petronas team) might have the ef­fect of bring­ing a race win­ner into the team, but it also has the ben­e­fit of stop­ping another man­u­fac­turer ben­e­fit­ting from his un­doubted tal­ents.

Could this be the ti­tle fight in 2019? Lorenzo v Mar­quez
