Race day crash spoils British Grand Prix weekend for Alex Marquez
Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Alex Marquez crashed during a thrilling Moto2 World Championship race at Silverstone today.
In the opening laps of the British Grand Prix Alex raced in tandem with his teammate Franco Morbidelli with the pair in the early battle for third and fourth positions.
When Márquez lost the front-end and crashed out of third place at turn 16 on lap five it was left to Morbidelli to continue his breathtaking podium charge.
Álex Márquez: 25th
“The crash was my mistake, totally my fault and it is a pity because I was feeling good and in a position to fight for the podium. We tried one thing for the race that was not ideal but this is not an excuse because the rest of the weekend was so positive and competitive. I know why I crashed and this is important now as we head to the next race in Misano.”
