Alex Marquez stages great fightback from 21st to 7th in Malaysian Grand Prix

 In Moto2, News


The Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit today started on a wet track in drizzling rain but with eight laps remaining the sun was out with riders on rain tyres on a drying track.

In blinding spray from 21st on the grid Álex Márquez made a dynamic start and staged a brave surge through the traffic to 12th on lap one. The Spanish star made some robust overtakes and got up to fifth on lap eight in a tight contest with Hafizh Syahrin, Lorenzo Baldassarri, Thomas Lüthi and Xavier Simeon before dropping to seventh at the finish.

Álex Márquez: 7th
“I am happy because I made a really good race from so far back on the grid, I took a lot of risks on lap one after I made the best start of my Moto2 career. I got to fifth place but with the drying track and having pushed my tyres I was seventh at the end. It is a good result considering the problems in qualifying and I’m back riding at my best. Now we have a short break before the final race in Valencia, I’m motivated for a strong finish to the season.”
