Top ten finish for Alex Marquez at Misano
Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Álex Márquez completed a top-ten finish in a sun soaked 13th round of the Moto2 World Championship today.
Márquez started 12th on the grid and made a strong surge to ninth until he began to suffer front grip issues as the scorching track temperature hit 34 degrees.
In the circumstances Márquez decided to secure his third top-ten result out of the past four races.
Álex Márquez: 10th
“I am not really happy with my race, I expected a lot more than this result. I made a good start and felt fast in the opening laps but then I started to lose the feeling with the front and I nearly crashed a few times with the front closing so I decided to make sure I finished. I know we struggle in hot conditions so we need to see what steps we can take to solve this and we are 100% motivated for this at the next race in Aragon.”
