KOMPAS.com – Suzuki’s legendary racer, Marco Lucchinelli, speaks up about the champions in his absence Marc Marquez.
On MotoGP the 2020 season, Marc Marquez’s dominance did not appear after he suffered a serious injury.
The six times world champion in the MotoGP class has suffered from injuries since the first series. He then has to undergo a recovery process until the 2020 season ends.
This condition makes competition in the MotoGP class unpredictable.
Quartararo continues to lead the standings until mid-season. However, his performance declined when he entered the ninth series, the French MotoGP.
Joan Mir is actually not a racer who is considered to win the 2020 MotoGP season.
At the start of the season, a number of five riders were asked to predict the top five residents of the MotoGP standings.
From the list given by the five riders, there is no Joan Mir’s name.
This is inversely proportional to Marc Marquez who is always on the top list.

Some parties then assumed that Joan Mir could become the 2020 MotoGP world champion because Marc Marquez was absent.
Legendary racer, Marco Lucchinelli, who once tasted the joint title Suzuki also spoke about this assumption.
According to him, Joan Mir could become the 2020 MotoGP champion thanks to the Suzuki motorbike’s performance and the consistency of the rider.
Joan Mir’s consistency can be seen after he won seven podiums from the 13 series that have been undertaken.
“When you win a world championship, nobody can take it from you. This is a championship won because Mir has a good bike and he is consistent,” said Lucchinelli. Paddock-GP.
However, Lucchinelli understands that there are parties who remember MotoGP 2020 as a world championship without Marc Marquez.
“Marc Marquez was not there. And the one to beat will always be him. If you win the championship ahead of him, that’s one thing,” said Lucchinelli.
“However, if you win because he is not there … you are good, maybe you deserve it, but it will always be remembered as a world championship where Marquez was not present,” added the 66-year-old.
The 2020 MotoGP series still has one more series left and will be held at the Portimao Circuit, Portugal, Sunday (11/22/2020) evening WIB.
