Alex Marquez 73 – younger brother of Marc Marquez 93 – will get a ‘real’ MotoGP test at Jerez next week.
The Spaniard will swap his usual Marc VDS Kalex, in place of the injured Thomas Luthi.
Asked for some advice to his younger sibling, Marc Marquez said:
“ It will be a one-day test, and he needs to enjoy the experience. I will be there just to enjoy it, but you cannot ask him a lot of things.”
“It’s just something to have fun, of course, the team asked him to do it, because the team needs to learn, also the mechanics.”
“He needs to have fun, and the first time you ride a MotoGP bike, sure if you speak with the rookies, everything is good.”
“He did five laps in Valencia two years ago, two laps in Misano, but never a real test.”
“So he needs to enjoy the experience and of course, eat a lot in the morning because it’s more powerful!”
