Honda still can’t win without Marc Marquez. The Japanese manufacturer countered the assessment by offending Yamaha.
Honda still hasn’t performed well in MotoGP 2022. For 11 races, Honda has only won one podium, when Pol Espargaro finished third in the Qatar 2022 MotoGP.
As a result, there is no Honda rider who competes at the top. Marc Marquez is still the best Honda rider by occupying the 13th position, with a collection of 60 points.
Meanwhile, Yamaha looks better. They were able to win three times, which was achieved by Quartararo. El Diablo became the winner of MotoGP Portugal, MotoGP Catalunya, and MotoGP Germany.
Ducati who managed to place two riders who have won this season. Enea Bastianini and Francesco Bagnaia who have won at MotoGP 2022.
Therefore, the Repsol Honda boss, Alberto Puig, responded to the assumption that Honda could only win with Marquez in a relaxed manner. He also said that Yamaha did the same thing.
“In exchange, I can claim that Yamaha can only win with Quartararo,” said Puig at Speedweek.
“All top riders can make a difference! This ignorant person has no idea. The combination between Marquez and Honda is very strong over the years, he won the world championship six times in seven years.”
“Now he’s been injured for two years, he comes and goes, he can’t develop the bike. That’s why we are in serious trouble,” he added.
