Alex Márquez, third in an intense race in Assen

The Moto2 race at the emblematic "Cathedral of Speed" was held on Sunday under a clear sky but with a lot of wind, which has not been an obstacle for the Team Estrella Galicia 0.0 Marc VDS to get a deserved double 'top 5' with Álex Márquez and Mir.

After a difficult weekend for Álex Márquez, with two crashes during training that made it difficult to get ready for the race, this podium, the fifth in the eight races held this year, is a great result for the driver of Cervera.

In the first laps Márquez was placed fifth and climbed to the second position to finish third to something more than two seconds of the time of the winner.

This fifth podium by Márquez allows him to ascend to the third position of the championship with 110 points.

Álex Márquez:
"This podium is a great result because the weekend has been especially difficult after suffering a lot in the free and qualifying. The race was very long and difficult and, despite the strong wind, I had a good pace. However, I have made a couple of small mistakes that have led me to lose some time. In general, I'm not completely satisfied because, without those failures, I could have done better. "
