No race but excellent Rookie of the Year title for Marc Marquez
Emotional finale for a season full of success in Marc Marquez’s team. Despite being forced to watch the race from his box with his family, Marc Márquez, the best rookie of the season, lived one of the most emotional moments of the year, this time out of the track.
With the aid of his sponsors, team, family, media and all who have lived the intense moments of this season with him, the rider from Cervera received today a worm and emotional homage from his environment to put an end to his first season in the intermediate category.
While Izaskun Ruiz, from TVE, was interviewing the Repsol rider and without him noticing it, all members of his team, family and sponsors put on shirts specially made for the occasion that read: “Marc Márquez, Rookie of the Year”. It was a nice surprise for Marc to see everyone wearing the shirt when he looked back and to receive a warm applause. An ovation to the new winner of the Michel Meatraux Trophy as Moto2 rookie of 2011 for his brilliant season.
Marc Márquez: “Although we finished second, we had a great season. Let’s see if next year we can change number 2 for number 1. I was moved to see the surprise that all my team, family and sponsors prepared for me. It was very emotional, really.
All of them do a great effort every day so that we can enjoy together this wonderful sport. I hope I am able to pay back of their support with lots of successes. Thank you very much to all!”.
