Le Mans DNF for Alex Marquez
From 16th on the grid Spaniard Álex Márquez faced a risky race at today’s French Grand Prix at Le Mans to make up positions and score points but unfortunately he crashed out of 14th place on lap seven with 12 laps remaining.
Marquez went into the 26-lap race with some confidence boosting set-up changes in the morning warm-up but he was unable to capitalise on the demanding 4.2km Bugatti circuit.
Álex Márquez: DNF
“All weekend we have been struggling a lot with set-up and in the warm-up this morning we changed many things and made a good step but still not enough. Then in the race I knew it would difficult from P16 but I tried to stay calm and ride smooth but then I crashed and I don’t know why. We need to understand what happened and move on from these bad moments and change and try for a good race in Mugello which is a circuit that I like.”
