MotoGP 2019 season continues today with the world’s best riders about to lock horns in the Austin 2019 Grand Prix.
Going into today’s race in Texas Marc Marquez tops the MotoGP standings after his dominant win in Argentina.
The Repsol Honda star is ahead in the championship battle by four points over Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso.
Yamaha rider and MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi is a further 10 points adrift in third place.
Last time out Marquez and Rossi shared a handshake just before the podium celebrations in Argentina.
It came seven months after Rossi declined to shake Marquez’s hand following the 2018 Argentina GP where Marquez made contact with the Italian.
That incident saw Rossi’s race ended while Marquez was handed a 30 second penalty for the move.
Speaking ahead of today’s MotoGP race, Marquez said: “It was a moment, you know?
“When you give a kiss to the girl, same, in the moment! It was there, the moment, and we were alone! And we shake hands before the podium.
“It was a nice race. I never had a problem, so it’s no problem to have a respectful relationship.”
While Rossi said: “Yeah, it was the right moment. I make my congratulations because he did a very fast weekend, very fast race.
“So I think it’s normal.”
