The pole position achieved by Marquez is certainly quite surprising, because this is his second race after being sidelined for a long time due to surgery and undergoing a recovery period on his right arm.
Pramac Racing’s Jorge Martin was amazed by Marquez’s performance. Martin, who finished fifth in the qualifying session, gave his praise to Marquez.

However, Martin was actually not too surprised. Because, the racer nicknamed Martinator admits that The Baby Alien’s performance has been very strong since Friday’s test using medium tires.
“I saw Marquez was quite strong, on Friday he made a good pace on the medium tyre. The choice of rear tires to be attractive, medium or soft. We had a bit of dry practice time. Zarco is definitely strong, apart from Fabio and Pecco who start from behind,” said Martin, quoted from Motosan, Sunday (25/9/2022).
Furthermore, Martin revealed the map of his competition in the Japanese MotoGP race which will take place on Sunday (25/9/2022) afternoon WIB. The Spaniard was wary of the movement of Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia), because Espargaro started the race right behind him.
“Aleix (Espargaro) is also by my side, everyone wants to be fast, especially at the start of the race. So it’s important to have good tires after 12 or 13 laps to be fast at the end.”
Returning to Marquez, Martin predicts that Marquez will come out victorious in the 2022 Japanese MotoGP. Because the performance of the Honda RC213V motorbike ridden by The Baby Alien has a slick speed.
“I think, looking at yesterday’s pace, it was pretty fast on average. I think he can fight to win,” concluded Martinator.
