Marc Marquez denies MotoGP and Moto2 race plan in Valencia

1 of 2

Marc Marquez has written off the prospect of racing in both MotoGP and Moto2 in Valencia’s final round in November.

Speculation has been rife that the dominant reigning world champion was seriously contemplating spicing up the season finale with a double race appearance.

The 21-year-old is likely to wrap up his second premier class crown well in advance of the final race on November 9, and had begun investigating the possibility to make a shock return to Moto2.

But the Spaniard, who won the 2012 Moto2 world title before embarking on a record-breaking career in MotoGP, said the chances of him doing both races in Valencia were only five per cent.

Marquez said: “I say there is a five per cent chance because I do not close the door completely. But it is virtually closed. It is something I would like to do in my dreams but right now it is impossible. And maybe Honda wouldn’t be so happy because Moto2 is a really tough class and you can be first or 20th. We can close this chapter because I won’t do it and I will focus only on MotoGP.”
