Marquez’s MotoGP future “We hope and we are confident. I am open to signing with Honda, that’s why I will give my best for that chance. I have already thought about getting a bike to race with in Austin [US]. We know we’ll have to get a good bike at 125cc. There is a team with rules for 125cc. We’re aware of the risks but we can’t run without saving with that bike. It’ll be interesting to see what happens in Austin. If we have a good day I’m sure we’ll fight, and if not then we’ll have to get a second bike at the right time to fight with 125cc.”
