A complicated weekend draws to a close for Alex Marquez at the Cota in Austin, Texas. The Spaniard, who had encouraging performances in both free practice and qualifying, found himself on the ground twice on Sunday, first during the warmup session (turn two) and then on the opening lap of the race as he was hit by Martin.
DNF – ALEX MARQUEZ #73
“It’s been a weekend as positive as unlucky at the same time. We worked well and found the right confidence already from the Friday. Unfortunately, we had a bit too many crashes and today we were simply not fortunate enough. These things happen, Martin apologized to me and everything stays there in the race. It could happen the same to me on another occasion, it happens to everybody. Now we go back to Europe with plenty of confidence in our abilities.”
