Why has Marc Marquez returned to “what he knows” on RC213V?

After the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto, Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) admitted that he “wasn’t quite comfortable” on his RC213V so far in 2021. “I didn’t see Marc’s 2020 base bike until the Monday of the Jerez Test where I finally saw it sitting there. In FP2 he back to backed, what I believe is his old bike and settings with the 2021 base bike. In addition, one of Marc Marquez’s bikes had an earlier Öhlins rear shock model, not the latest one that is available. “When Marc last rode his old bike, he was incredible and his confidence was super high. Even if he got on his old bike exactly like it was in 2020, it would be hard for him to ride around the problems as he did before.
