Santi Hernandez adamant that 2020 will be full of surprises Marc Marquez’s crew chief is convinced that the unprecedented nature of the 2020 MotoGP™ World Championship will lead to a shock or two.

Over the weekend, Santi Hernandez sat down with the MotoGP™ Spanish Podcast crew for the most recent episode of Cambia el Mapa. Marc Marquez’s long-time crew chief inside the Repsol Honda box gave a fascinating insight into how the World Champion and his team are preparing for the extraordinary 2020 season, including whether Honda will be the latest factory to role out a hole shot device.

Marc Marquez is now doing MX training. Has his shoulder recovered 100%?

We’ve seen a video of Marc starting to ride his motocross bike and having his first contact with a motorbike after so much time without riding and the truth is that it’s been quite positive for Marc to get back on a bike, especially after the operation he had on his shoulder and it’s true that this enforced break has helped him with his recovery. We hope that when we start the season it won’t be a problem now like we thought it would at the start of the season. This is really important and really positive for us and our championship.

What contact do you have with Marc about bikes? What can you discuss from given the distance? Is it strategy or what do you talk about?

We have a group and we try, every so often, to get everyone together and see each other’s faces because it’s really important to be able to be in touch with the team. We have a good relationship between us and I think during this time that we’ve been in lockdown at home forces you to get on even better. With Marc, we talk about things that worry him about taking on this season. We especially try to stay in contact with Japan, with my boss Takeo. We try, more than anything, to talk a bit about what improvements that can be made or what we can work on during the season according to the changes made to the rules, but as it stands we’re waiting for them to confirm when we’re going to get back to work. It’s true that we’re planning some things, especially in preparation for the first race in terms of setup, how he’ll be in the first race after this pause since the Qatar Test, but right now, being completely serious, we’re not talking about anything concrete. First, we need to know officially when we’ll start and, from that point on, we’ll work like normal: conference calls, talking about things we’re concerned about and getting ready for the first race.
