No rush to get Marc Marquez in MotoGP, says HRC boss

Marc Marquez has been warned not to rush coming into MotoGP as speculation mounts the emerging Spanish star will ride a new Honda RC213V machine in 2012.

The reigning 125GP world champion's Repsol-backed Moto2 squad has asked HRC to reserve a bike in case he defeats Stefan Bradl to the 600cc four-stroke crown.

Marquez trails the German by just six points after he won the recent Motorland Aragon race to claim a sixth victory in seven races.

Honda has confirmed it would supply a bike if Marquez's squad had the budget to lease an RC213V.

But HRC boss Livio Suppo told MCN: "Sooner or later it will be too late to order a bike. We are getting very close to the deadline in which we can supply two bikes. There is a lot of speculation about it because Marquez is doing an unbelievable job but as far as I know everything is in place to have another year in Moto2. I don’t see why he should rush. He is doing a great job, he is still young and he has great talent and one more year in Moto2 shouldn’t be a big problem."
