The official Australian Grand Prix podcast In the Fast Lane has released a new MotoGP™ episode, with two-time World Superbike Champion and 12-time premier-class podium finisher Colin Edwards.
Edwards joined co-hosts Matt Clayton and Chris Vermeulen to discuss the first two MotoGP™ races of 2021 and his take on Ducati’s season so far.
“He is so dominant – he has so much self-belief and he believes he is supposed to be on the top step at every race,” Edwards said.
Marquez underwent a lengthy recovery after falling at the Spanish GP in 2020, but the Texas Tornado believes he still poses a big threat.
“I think he’s hungry and you find a hungry Marquez and put him on the track, I think that’s a scary combination,” Edwards said.
“Marquez, man, he could very easily be the GOAT.”
While all eyes will be on six-time World Champion Marquez in Portugal, Edwards says another rider to watch is young gun Joan Mir.
“I think he is the only one on the grid that has the confidence to say, ‘Hey, look at me – I’m the World Champion.’”
