Why it’s time to stop whining about Marquez’s MotoGP qualifying tactics
It’s no secret that Marc Marquez is having a difficult time on the Honda this season. He has crashed 27 times, matching his record for a single campaign. His results have been poor, with only one podium finish in the wet at Motegi. His qualifying performance has been better, with pole position in Portugal and second place at the French and Italian GPs. However, Marquez has been using a tow tactic, following other riders to improve his lap times. This strategy has received criticism, but Marquez sees it as part of the game. Ultimately, his qualifying approach has not always been successful, as seen in his recent crash in Malaysia.
