Lorenzo disassembles the beginning Marquez hates Rossi


MotoGP legend from Spain, Jorge Lorenzo also responded to Marc Marquez’s bad relationship with Valentino Rossi. According to him, the two of them were ‘eternal rivals’ in their time. Thus, it is difficult to reconcile the two.

Through the documentary series that aired on DAZN, Lorenzo confirmed that Marquez harbored hatred for Rossi. However, behind the hate, according to him, tucked in a sense of love. Moreover, before becoming a racer, Marquez had idolized Rossi.

“Between hate and love there is a very thin dividing line. That makes it impossible to be friends with rivals,” said Lorenzo, quoted from TuttomotoriWednesday (23/11/2022).

Interestingly, said Lorenzo, Marquez had started to hate Rossi after the 2015 Argentina MotoGP. At that time, The Baby Alien fell over in the final lap after being involved in a collision with Rossi. However, these feelings peaked after the Sepang Clash incident in the same year.

“One of the reasons (Marquez hates Rossi) happened in Argentina 2015. There, Marc thought it was Vale’s fault. They had a good relationship at that time and in my opinion, Marc was annoyed when afterwards Vale did not approach him to ask how he was after the fall,” he said .

It is known that Rossi shook Marquez’s hand when the two of them were on the podium a few seasons later. However, the relationship between the two was still cold until Rossi decided to retire after MotoGP 2021.

Last month, Marquez again expressed his frustration with Rossi. In fact, he admitted that he would never contact Rossi to establish friendship. Now, his admiration for The Doctor has turned into hatred.

“No, I don’t want (Rossi’s contact). Year after year it keeps changing, and my liking for him is getting less and less. I don’t care,” said Marquez.
