Where Honda Lost Its Train In Development According To Alex Marquez
For Honda the 2022 season is an absolute mess. Since Pol Espargaro’s podium finish in the season opener in Qatar, there were hardly any good races for the Japanese manufacturer. Alex Marquez thinks he knows where Honda lost its train in development.
With a new concept for the 2022 season, Honda wanted to find its way back to the top of the field. However, even though the new RC213V had many new specifications introduced, riders are still struggling massively with the Japanese bike.
In fact, Honda riders are struggling so much that one has decided to leave the sinking ship at the end of the season – LCR Honda rider Alex Marquez will make the switch to Gresini Ducati for the 2023 season.

He describes the current Honda situation as unexpected: “When I renewed the contract and moved to LCR, I didn’t expect the situation to be like it is now.”
He continues: “Everyone can draw their own conclusions, but I think people are smart and see what happens.”
Since his departure from Honda is official, the Spaniard does not mince his words anymore. He talks openly about what he thinks of Honda’s development plan.
