Marquez, who raced for Honda for many years, joined Gresini – Ducati’s satellite team – in 2024.

Marquez has been crowned world champion six times, but has not won another race since October 2021. This is attributed, among other things, to injuries he sustained during a major accident, but also due to the impaired performance of Honda’s motorcycles.

Marquez currently lies third in this year’s championship.
