The Thai GP draws to a close with a big disappointment for Alex Marquez, for he was – for a while – among the protagonists of today’s MotoGP race held today at Chang International Circuit, until disaster struck.
The gamble of using a different rear tyre compared to the others seemed to pay off at first, but a crash with 13 laps left – at turn ten – put him out of contention while running third. No physical consequence, on a brighter note, for the #73, who is still recovering from the injury suffered in India, but it is clear that both fitness and feeling with the bike are coming back.
DNF – ALEX MARQUEZ #73
“It’s a shame because we were brave today and we deserved something more. I was feeling good and also felt like I was quicker than Binder in that part of the track where I crashed. I still have to understand what happened, but I need to thank the team for the great work. We have the speed and the consistency in terms of results is just a matter of time.”
