Earlier this year, during the San Marino Grand Prix, whispers about Marquez potentially joining Gresini Ducati for the next season dominated the scene. Despite being contractually bound with Honda for 2024, Marquez’s consistent assertion about his commitment was not enough to quell the rumors. Both Honda and Gresini also made attempts to dispel these speculations.

Monday’s post-race Misano test gave Marquez a firsthand experience of Honda’s 2024 prototype. Ending the session at 17th and trailing by a second, Marquez conveyed his concerns to the media. He stated, “It’s quite a different riding style. But fundamentally, the problems remain unchanged. We have a lot more work to do.”

Queried about the recurring problem of a lack of rear grip, Marquez acknowledged the issue. Commenting further on the prototype, he said, “While it’s still my first impression of the bike, it’s evident that even if we started in one direction and made changes suiting my style, we still face familiar challenges. The test isn’t over, and we’re awaiting Valencia. But if this is the foundation of the bike, then we’re far from where we should be. The only significant difference I observed between this and my current bike is in the chassis and geometry; the engine remains unchanged.”

Marquez has been largely diplomatic about the significance of these tests, but many perceive them as pivotal in determining his forthcoming career moves.

His future with Honda was a hot topic once again after the test. Marquez revealed that he has given himself a deadline till either the Indian GP or the Japanese GP later this month. He shared, “Around India or Japan, that’s when I’ll make my decision.”

Contrary to reports claiming that he’s already made up his mind, Marquez clarified, “Things might change. I have three distinct plans – A, B, and C. I know what needs to happen for each, so there’s still time.”

With Marquez keeping the world on its toes regarding his next steps, fans and enthusiasts can only wait to see where this MotoGP legend will steer his career.
