Alex Marquez will not move

While his brother has decided to join the official Ducati team next season, Alex Marquez will remain loyal to Gresini. The Spanish driver has extended his contract for two more seasons, until 2026.

Alex Marquez will not fail at the Gresini team. Arriving within the Italian team at the start of the 2023 season after having cut his teeth in MotoGP within the fold of Honda, first within the official team in 2021 then at LCR during the following two seasons, the younger brother of Marc Marquez found a framework allowing him to flourish aboard the Ducati. And he will have the opportunity to deepen this because he will not give up his handlebars anytime soon.

Indeed, if his brother will join Francesco Bagnaia within the official team of the Italian manufacturer, the native of Cervera will continue his adventure with Gresini for at least two more years. The day after the Dutch Grand Prix, Alex Marquez signed a new contract, committing himself until the end of the 2026 season with the team founded by the late Fausto Gresini. Continuing at Gresini was my main objective “, the person concerned confided.

A. Marquez: “I know how far we can go”

“Since I landed in this reality, my goal was to be consistently close to the best, and that’s something I haven’t achieved yet,” he added. The start of the season was not what we hoped for, but the team is strong and I know how far we can go.. » For her part, team boss Nadia Padovani sees in Alex Marquez a “student” with whom “the symbiosis between the team and him was immediately incredible and was consolidated race after race”.

« We know what his potential is, he has already demonstrated it and he just needs continuityshe added. Renewing with him was a no-brainer for us because we are aware of his value on and off the track.
The results will come, including this year, I am absolutely sure. » With the departure of Marc Marquez, the Gresini team is looking for a second driver, claiming to have “lots of options” both in and out of the paddock.
