Álex Márquez ready to race in Qatar
Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS riders Álex Márquez and Franco Morbidelli have qualified 13th and fifth respectively for the Qatar Grand Prix.
Unfortunately for Márquez the chatter issues that appeared in free practice again slowed his pace in qualifying and he faces a tough assignment from the fifth row of the grid.
The red hot pace in qualifying saw 14 riders within one second of pole position, setting the scene for a torrid contest in the 20-lap Moto2 race.
Álex Márquez: 13th – 2’00.009
“We had a lot of problems in qualifying with chatter and despite the changes we made we still need some more adjustment for the race. My rhythm for the race is good but when you start 13th in a Moto2 race it is difficult to be in the front, so I will need a good start and try to pass many riders in the opening laps and keep a strong pace.”
