Jorge Martinez: Mark Márquez has created own style and is a reference point in MotoGP today

The 4-fold world champion in the Motor-Grand Prix who has devoted the life to the world of Big Prizes and nowadays heading one of the biggest private garages in Paddock - Angel Nieto Team - Jorge Martinez known as Aspar speaks about the World Cup: what in him has changed in 40 years and who changes the world of motorcycle sport?

"Should note those massive changes which have happened in Paddock and on a track, - Aspar says. - Generally all of them to the best that can't but please. But there are also things which are lost forever: romanticism of motorcycle races, when everything was on an intuition when there were less purely technical moments. For those 25 years that Dorna rules the world of MotoGP, the main changes are an improvement of autodromes and increase in safety. Eventually, all this has led to total acceleration and rapprochement of races of the Grand Prix".

When you were a pilot, you had more chances to win races, and, in different classes in one day. Today it would be possible?

Jorge Martinez: I don't think so. More likely, it is almost impossible therefore then everything was differently - the organization of racing day, but also because today there is improbable level of equal opportunities, both in respect of technologies, and on level of training to races, pilotage, trainings. It became more difficult to win in principle".

As to you current championship?

Jorge Martinez: "On me, so one of the best in the history. The rules submitted a few years ago have earned on full and have equaled chances of teams and pilots in all three classes. In MotoGP, of course, the plants always played a little at other level, but now the difference with private traders isn't so big. The plants have very exact study of the smallest details, but now we have 16 pilots who keep within a second from the leader in each practice! It never before occurred. On the Grand Prix of the Netherlands, Germany and the Czech Republic and also in Austria we saw the excellent, spectacular and concerning races with a set of overtakings. From the point of view of a unification of pilotage and technologies, I think, MotoGP now in the highest form".

What in your opinion has more affected the championship - the rule of the uniform supplier of tires or electronics?

Jorge Martinez: "Without doubts, electronics has made the biggest changes to the principles of the championship on MotoGP, and she has created that situation which we have. But tires eventually play an important role. Both depends on team, on her work. But the choice of tires is still the main care of teams and rafts: to find ideal control, to pick up an ideal compound, to choose pressure, to reach optimum temperature, to calculate all this, to predict dynamics and many other things are here that turns today an outcome of each race". Mark Márquez has begun with

the second half of a season with serious opposition from Dovitsiozo and Lorenzo. How do you consider, they are capable to impose him fight for a title?

Jorge Martinez: "Without doubts, we saw everything as Lorenzo together with Ducati has grown up, and he continues to take steps forward. Press I expected to see at the head
