With the uncertainty over the 2020 MotoGP season, Alex Marquez says he "wouldn't like" to sign a contract renewal at Honda without racing.

The reigning Moto2 world champion was set to make his premier class debut this year alongside his brother Marc, this after Jorge Lorenzo announced his retirement in Valencia last year.

However, Marquez only signed a one year contract with Repsol Honda but has the option to re-sign if he has good results.

"I'm just looking forward to starting the races and getting good results, it's the only chance to renew with Honda," the 24-year-old said.

"A renewal without earning it on the track is not for me, as a rider I wouldn't like it. I hope it doesn't happen and we have many races this year."

The 2020 season was supposed to start in March with the traditional opening race in Qatar, however, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the race was cancelled with a further 10 either cancelled, postponed or rescheduled.

Hopes are growing though that MotoGP - and other motorsport series around the world - can get back racing, albeit behind closed doors, in July.
