The rookie has made a barnstorming start to the season.

He was a shock winner in Austin after Marquez spectacularly crashed out last month.

But he couldn’t get one over the Catalan in Jerez and finished second.

Marquez, however, says the Suzuki ace is a serious threat to his MotoGP dominance.

“He start in a good way this season”

“I already say in Malaysia [pre-season] test that Alex will be there, because he finish in a good way the [2018] season, he start in a good way this season, he was riding in a very good way in the pre-season,” Marquez said.

“His strongest point is that he don’t have pressure at the moment. For sure it will arrive.

“It’s true. At the moment if he finishes second, he’s very happy; he finishes first, [it]is amazing; he finishes third, also he’s happy.

“Now is another opponent for the championship, he’s ready to fight for the championship and the bike too.

“This is important also and it’s important for the championship to have more manufacturers fighting for the title.”

Speaking after Jerez, Rins was delighted with his solid showing.

He said: “We did an incredible race starting on the third row.

“Before the start all the team and I knew the rhythm was the same as Marc more or less and in the race more or less he goes one step down.

“I was quite comfortable the unique thing was I needed to try and overtake very fast and I lost a lot of time with Dovizioso. The Ducati bike brakes hard and accelerates really hard.

“Anyway, step by step I overtook riders and did a lot of laps at the front waiting to see if he made any mistakes but anyway second position was incredible for us.”

MARC MARQUEZ has warned that Alex Rins will battle him for championship glory.
