“I told him that in my day he would have died five times.”
The 15-time world champion in motorcycling Giacomo Agostini in an interview with Corriere dello Sport revealed a background on Marc Marquez: “I’m sorry he’s stopped now, unfortunately he crashed many times. One day, in fact, I said to him: a fall as you do, in my day you would have died five times “.
“But that’s the way he is, he always gives 100%, I hope he’ll be back as before, Marc is the rider who gets you out of your seat. And personally I like him, he and Quartararo are the two riders who even before the start of a GP, on the grill, they find a way to greet me “.
According to Agostini we need an absolute protagonist in the MotoGP: “We like the many different winners, but we want to see the protagonist doing things that others can’t. Cassius Clay, Agostini, Eddie Merckx, Maradona, Valentino Rossi , the Rafa Nadal of the situation, and I don’t think that whoever wins a lot ends up getting tired. Whoever wins a lot attracts the public and makes them fall in love, let’s think of people’s affection for Rossi until the last years when he didn’t win anymore. motorcycling serves the great character “.
