lWe arrive at the last Valencia Grand Prix, where Marc Márquez will run for the last time in the ranks of the Repsol Honda. The eight-time champion can only hope to finish 13th overall. Right now it occupies 14th position with 89 points. He is very close to Franco Morbidelli (one step above with 91), but be careful Enea Bastianini He is a very short distance behind (15th with 84).
The fact is that it will be a moving event for Cervera. It has been 11 years with the golden wing brand. Numbers say everything: 169 races in Grand Prix, 59 victories, 64 pole positions, 101 podiums and six World Championships won. It is, evidently, the end of a glorious era.
After the long race on Sunday at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, Marc will already be thinking about the Gresini Racing. With the Faenza painting you will have a more powerful weapon. In 2024 he will take the wheel of the Ducati Desmosedici GP23. And its first contact will be precisely on the Cheste route in the test which will be held next Tuesday.
