How in-form Quartararo is evoking Marquez in MotoGP 2022

OPINION: Fabio Quartararo has seized control of the 2022 MotoGP world standings after another dominant victory as his nearest rivals faltered. And he is very much heading towards a second championship echoing how the dominator of the last decade achieved much of his success.

Even last year with essentially one fully functioning arm, Marc Marquez was expected to stand on top of the podium at the German Grand Prix. He had done every year in MotoGP from his debut in 2013 (no race was held in 2020 due to COVID), while no manufacturer other than Honda had taken a Sachsenring victory since Valentino Rossi in 2009 on the Yamaha.

Despite Marquez’s continued absence through a fourth major operation on his badly broken right arm – which has gone well and his recovery is heading in the right direction – Honda’s decline in Germany last weekend was impossible to predict.
