Alex Márquez claimed a creditable top-10 finish at the San Marino Grand Prix as he again emerged as the leading Honda bike at Misano. The LCR Honda CASTROL rider put in a consistent performance in Sunday’s race to earn six more World Championship points and cap off a positive weekend in northern Italy.
The Spaniard made a good start from the sixth row, making up places and settling into 12th position on the opening lap. He then did battle with KTM duo Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira for much of the race, but in the closing, stages was able to secure a top 10 spot at the chequered flag.
Alex Márquez – 10th “That was our maximum pace today, I gave 100% and we were really consistent, it was a good weekend overall in our situation. The team gave 100% in every session and we felt good which, in our situation, is not always easy. I was trying to push and enjoy myself on the bike and a top-10 today was the maximum as I gave everything I had in the race and I was trying to survive and handle the tyres. I’m quite happy, we’re still a long way from the top, but we need to keep going and this result will help us to stay motivated.”
