Marc Marquez, Nakagami and more: not all heroes wear capes

It’s a small element of what makes this special sport such a spectacle, but seeing a big one never makes for nice viewing. In FP2 we saw Marquez sliding the rear and tucking the front, it was like he’d never been away. Qualifying sixth on the grid after coming through Q1 was about as good as Marquez could have wished for. Marquez rode his pace, stayed out of trouble, kept his head down and raced on as others crashed ahead of him. In the end, a P7 was above and beyond what Marquez and his team could have envisaged a couple of months ago. As he said himself, Marquez is a man that likes to hide his emotions. But Nakagami is a warrior, just like the rest of them, so that’s exactly what he didn’t do.
