Nothing much would have surprised Alex Marquez when he made it to MotoGP in 2020; the younger brother by three years to Marc had, after all, seen it all in Marc's fledgling years in the paddock as he became the sport's benchmark.

But Alex losing his job at Repsol Honda before he'd even ridden a race for them, the team signing Pol Espargaro for 2021 before the pandemic-delayed 2020 campaign began at Jerez? Now that was a shock, and one that would have derailed a rider with a less robust mental make-up.

The Moto3 (2014) and Moto2 (2019) champion took his pair of podiums with Honda's A-team with him to LCR for 2021, and has largely treaded water so far as he builds big-bike experience. Those reps will come in handy for Phillip Island, where he's yet to ride a RC213V on one of the most intimidating tracks of all.
