Crunching The Numbers: Is Marc Marquez Really Risking His Career By Crashing So Much?

[MotoMatters.com | Kropotkin Thinks – … that bikes are on track again, and all is right with the world] – 03/06 04:18

On October 21st, 2018, at Motegi, Marc Márquez wrapped up his fifth MotoGP title in six seasons, with three races to spare. He did so despite having suffered his 18th crash of the season so far during FP4, the front washing out as he released the brakes in Turn 7. He led the MotoGP class in crashes at Motegi, and would continue to do so through the final race in Valencia, amassing a grand total of 23 crashes at official events throughout the 2018 season.
He had gone one better in 2018 than he had the year before, finishing second to Sam Lowes in 2017, ending up with 27 crashes to Lowes' 31. In 2016, he was a lowly third in the crash rankings, ending the season with 17 falls, behind Cal Crutchlow and Jack Miller with 26 and 25 crashes respectively.
That propensity to crash has caused many people to question just how long Márquez can keep taking the risks that he does. Former triple world champion Wayne Rainey, in a recent interview with Motorsport.com's Gerald Dirnbeck, voices a concern felt by many.

カタールテスト3日目 ヨハン・ザルコ「高いコーナリングスピードで曲がれない」

[気になるバイクニュース。] – 03/01 10:47

最終日は転倒もあって精細を欠いたザルコ。彼自身の強みでもあるスムーズなライディング、高いコーナリングスピードの維持という部分を発揮出来ていないようです。ヤマハとは大きく異なる性格のバイクと言われるKTMだけに、ロレンソのDucati初年度程度には苦戦が予想されます。

テスト3日目22番手 ヨハン・ザルコ
「結果的には悲しいですね。ミディアムタイヤは気温が下がってきた中で良いパフォーマンスを発揮出来ず転倒してしまいました。自分の走りに関しても改善することが出来ませんでした。バイクを理解するためにさらに経験を積むことが出来たとは思います。今の限界を理解することが出来て、方向性を変えてまた別の限界に向けて進んでいくことになります。」
「コンスタントさはあると思うんですが、ペースは正直行って悪いですね。レースではどこまで上に行けるかですね。苦戦しているのはコーナーエントリーです。高いコーナリングスピードで曲がれないことが現時点の弱点だと思います。」

「毎年浜松本社に来ると何かしら新しいことをやるんですよね。風洞実験のための3Dスキャニングを行って、自分の体とヘルメットを確認した時は驚きました。こんなことやった事はありませんでしたからね。それから新旧のフェアリングを風洞実験室で比較したんです。本当に生産的な1日でした。新しいシーズンに向けての自信はあります。昨年の記録を向上したいと思います。チームのために優勝を狙っていきたいと思います。」

Sam Lowes ended his preseason with a surge of confidence, the Gresini Kalex rider ending fastest overall, and topping four of the nine sessions of Moto2 testing over the three days at Qatar. The Englishman was fast over a single lap, but also had outstanding pace, lapping consistently in the 1’58s.
