"Marquez is what he is because of the attitude he showed in Jerez"

Dorna's CEO talks about the champion and the first two races: "They were wonderful, they show that we can travel anywhere in peace."


Carmelo Ezpeleta is "very happy" with how things turned out in the first two GGPP of difficult 2020 for MotoGP. Both have been played in Jerez and the CEO of Dorna sees them as key to trust that the entire season can be completed, initially scheduled until November 15 in Valencia. There will be '12 +1 'appointments compressed in 18 weeks and "the first two have gone wonderfully and serve to demonstrate that MotoGP can travel easily to anywhere to celebrate their races" .

When asked if the paddock, which has been reduced to a third, has scrupulously complied with the safety regulations, he raises his voice to say: "I have heard that there are those who say that it has not been complied with, that if mechanics and others ... That is absolutely a lie and there are bullshitters who say it, because I had people monitoring the sites in case these things happened and nothing has happened ".

When asked about the extra dose of emotion that Márquez's start in MotoGP has brought this year, with the comeback and fall of the Spanish GP and the frustrated attempt at a miraculous reappearance for the Andalusian GP, says Ezpeleta: "We are sorry for what happened to Marc, but Marc is what he is because of the attitude shown last weekend. We spread his images doing push-ups as soon as he was operated on with his consent and it was tremendous how he was. Then he couldn't get to run, but at least He tried it. And I'm not the one to talk about sports predictions, but I am very clear that the championship is still open despite Marc starting 50 points behind the leader, who is a Quartararo who has started off wonderfully. "

A the Spanish comeback would help the racing calendar to be extended, something that depends on what the appointments pending confirmation decide: "I still do not know what will happen with Thailand, Malaysia and Argentina, because everything can happen. Since fall some or all or some double. They have until Friday, so on Thursday or Friday we will say something. "
