Marc Marquez winning on a Gresini Ducati won’t be an against-the-odds underdog fairytale – this is a six-time premier-class world champion on a GP23, the bike that won last year’s world title. But boy, it would be some story … and only the most cold-hearted MotoGP™ fan won’t be cheering somewhat for the narrative.

Marquez has won enough, earned enough, hurt himself enough and mesmerised us enough to have stayed put at his beloved Repsol Honda. But he’s also hard-wired to compete, and if he competes, he generally wins. Not as often for his liking since the Spain 2020 accident that changed the course of MotoGP™, and that – plus all of the operations, recoveries and mental anguish he’s endured since – has led us here.

Win often, sometimes, or not at all – it doesn’t matter for the sport’s fans, who are all winners from a modern-day great refusing to accept his predicament.
