It took four seasons for Alex Marquez to break into the top 10 of the MotoGP™ championship standings, with a 2023 high-water mark coming after an uneven campaign that mixed injury and absences with weekends like Argentina, Great Britain and Malaysia, when he genuinely looked like the top-liner he was in Moto3™ and Moto2™.

Does any of that matter now? No. And we all know why.

The arrival of brother Marc at Gresini rightly hogged the headlines, but we’re now about to find out how fast Alex really is on a premier-class bike. Lose out to big bro, and everyone will knowingly nod their heads; match or beat the best rider of the past decade on equal machinery more than occasionally, and Alex’s stock will rise while Marc’s performances will be put down to his inexperience on the Ducati.

It’s not an unequivocal win-win scenario for Alex, but it’s close.
