Many see in this mazarronero many traces of Marc Márquez. Brave to the extreme, with an innate talent from the first moment, intelligent when it comes to reading overtaking and taking risks to the limit … Acosta is called to great things in the world of two wheels, if luck accompanies you and avoids serious accidents (which you will have, is the law of life).

Márquez himself admits that he feels very satisfied to see that the young generations arrive so strong, and specifically the Murcian KTM rider, to whom he already gives advice. “I already talked to him before and his riding style is good, he has great talent and he is fast. This is obvious with the results in hand. But be careful: being here at the press conference with the MotoGP riders at 16 is difficult for him to accept because perhaps it is too much pressure. YOr I tell him to forget everything and enjoy it now. He is a very talented young man and if he wins on Sunday he will be fine, if he finishes in the top five or top 10 he will be fine as well, “says Marquez.

“It’s his first year so now is the time to enjoy himself, this is my advice to him. He’ll have time to push himself. Other than that, congratulations. He’s driving great and coming soon to MotoGP. I will try to be there, but soon it will come to compete against us “, predicts the champion.

Acosta will look for another victory this weekend at the Ángel Nieto Circuit in Jerez, where Márquez will contest his second race after returning from injury.
