Jorge Martin rues disappointing end to promising weekend at Silverstone

 In Moto3, News


The British Grand Prix could prove to be the decisive round of the Moto3 World Championship, with a victory for Brad Binder combining with a crash for Jorge Navarro to give the South African an 86-point lead over the Spaniard with just 150 left on offer.

Binder took the flag by just two tenths of a second from Mahindra Northgate Aspar Team rider Pecco Bagnaia, who fought a strong race from pole position to battle for his second career win, eventually settling for his fifth podium of the season ahead of Bo Bendsneyder in third.

Jorge Martín was not quite able to reproduce his performance from practice, although he crossed the line just 1.6 seconds behind the race winner at the back of the front group in eleventh place.

The Spaniard did a great job to close the gap after losing time in the first half of the race but with acceleration issues it was difficult to make any further progress. The five points he scored today are enough to bring him equal with his entire tally for last season with six races still remaining, the next one coming up at Misano in just seven days time.

11th Jorge Martín:
“I am not very happy with the result. After such a strong weekend, when we have worked well from the start, I was really motivated for this race. I was hoping for a lot more, I was in the group but I couldn’t pass and had to sit at the back of the group. It is a shame but I am ready for the next one at Misano in a few days.”
