Lorenzo procured a shock go into the Repsol Honda outfit after his partnership will move up against reigning champion Marquez at exactly the team in 20-19, and with Ducati dropped apart.
He had his first taste of the RC213V in post-season testing in Valencia and Jerez, end up less than 2 tenths off the pace on the final afternoon of the latter test.
Marquez has ever insisted he will not mind who he shares a garage with, also Lorenzo confessed he must be”thankful” to his future team mate for not blocking his move into Honda.
“When he beats me, he will get it done with the identical weapon. I prefer to struggle against the other handgun, with a handgun, rather.
“We have the very same bike and for that reason should Jorge wins I will know why. Anyway, in this way we can improve the bike’s level”
As much as now, Marquez’s only team mate at MotoGP has been Dani Pedrosa, who finally opted to retire as opposed to staying on the grid 2019 after being replaced at Honda by Lorenzo.
And though Pedrosa rarely contested Marquez in their tenure as teammates, the five-time premier class champion insists Lorenzo’s advent will not impact his mindset.
“But I’m aware that in the event that you would like to stay at HRC, or at the Ducati factory group or at Yamaha, there will be winning cyclists. In the event you don’t receive the victory, the other rider should be in a position to achieve it.
“That doesn’t signify Dani hasn’t contributed such a thing to Honda, as that which he has given us is amazing. But what is evident is that Jorge is among the greatest riders, and many more, ” he ’s [been] able to triumph with another bike.”
