VIVA – There is no longer a Valentino Rossi name in the 2022 MotoGP. The Italian racer is retiring. Usually, he is always juxtaposed with Marc Marquez in the title race.

But who would have thought, Marquez had long been no longer focused on Rossi. According to the Repsol Honda racer, in recent years, he considered The Doctor not his main opponent.

“I mean he’s not one of the main opponents for the title in recent years,” said Marc Marquez, quoted from Crash.

It’s natural for Marquez to say that. Because the last time Valentino Rossi managed to become the MotoGP world champion was in 2009. After that, he often failed to compete.

From 2014 to 2016, Rossi finished second. Two times Marquez became champion, while the other belonged to Jorge Lorenzo.

That’s why, for Marquez, this season without Rossi doesn’t make him feel any different. In fact, other racers who performed brilliantly, such as Pecco Bagnaia, Fabio Quartararo, and Joan Mir.
