VIVA – Repsol Honda racer Marc Marquez is being discussed on social media. The reason was his tweet on Twitter last night.

Marquez, who just underwent the MotoGP pre-season test at the Mandalika Circuit, Lombok, made a transit at Soekarno Hatta Airport. He will fly to Qatar to prepare for the season opener.

The Spanish racer’s intention was to capture the moment he was in Soekarno Hatta. He then captioned the photo with the words ‘Yakarta’ accompanied by the red and white flag and the airport hashtag.

Suddenly Indonesian netizens gave various comments. Some laughed at Marquez’s way of writing, and some gave corrections.

The meaning of Marquez who is perceived by netizens is ‘Jakarta’. But because he was from Spain, where the pronunciation of ‘J’ is ‘Y’, the writing changed.

Since last week, the figures of these MotoGP racers are always interesting to follow. They seemed enthusiastic about coming to Indonesia to try out the Mandalika Circuit.
