Doohan – Mick Doohan is an authoritative voice in the MotoGP paddock. First of Phillip Island GP, the Australian champion speaks about the 2016 MotoGP World Title.
He starts from Valentino Rossi. “I haven’t seen him so excited. Remember that he is second in the standings. I have no idea what to push him to be at the top. Whatever it is good for the sport. I hope that he will continue again next year. Fans watch the races on TV or go on the track because there’s him.” said Mick Doohan in an interview with the Australian podcast Keeping Track.
Doohan, Lorenzo is the “bomb” of the market
The market’s “bomb” is the signature between Lorenzo and Ducati. Doohan also speaks of the world champion’s passage from Yamaha to the Italian brand. “Ducati is revitalized So, it seems to be on the right way. Definitely Jorge will go there to do their best. If it arrives at Ducati and he suggests to the team to focus more on winning than on competing, I think the change will be positive. Valentino is number one in Yamaha. He has more experience than him with Michelin. He worked with engineers in the past. It helps him. But Lorenzo’s decision is good for the sport. Because the Ducati has one of the fastest riders in the world.”
Doohan, Marquez grew
Finally, the Australian speaks of Marc Marquez, the next World Champion. According to him, the Spaniard has matured. “Maquez grew. He understood that falls do not make points. He also had luck that others during the season got lost on the way.”
First there’s the Japan next week, but on 23 October there is the Australia Gp at Phillip Island. He also has his favorite. The surprise name is Jack Miller, pilot of Estrella 0.0 Marc VDS and winner of Gallicia a GP this season at Assen in the rain.
