MotoGP 2016: Marc Marquez

My final post about the upcoming 2016 MotoGP season switches focus back to the riders and this time it is about Marc Marquez.

He had a difficult season last year. That is if you call winning five races and finishing third in the championship a difficult season. But for Marquez it was as he had trouble getting to terms with the front end of the Honda bike.

He also had a lot of contact with Valentino Rossi which ended up in the infamous collision with Rossi at the Malaysian Grand Prix. Although that collision was the most talked about, they also collided at the Argentinian Grand Prix.

These two issues make Marquez one to watch in 2016 as he has already stated his concerns about the development of the 2016 Honda bike and many will be wondering about the relationship between Rossi and Marquez going into the new season.

With that in mind it will be interesting to see how the Spaniard performs both on the track and off it during 2016.
