Alex Marquez outside the points with 17th in #MalaysianGP
Álex Márquez took 17th position at the Grand Prix of Malaysia in the penultimate round of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship. The LCR Honda CASTROL rider could not find the rhythm or pace he wanted in Sunday’s race, but completed all 20 laps in typically humid conditions to see the chequered flag at the Sepang International Circuit.
The Spaniard impressed in a damp warm-up session in the morning as he finished in 3rd position, just behind brother Marc and Johann Zarco. However, he again struggled in dry conditions during the race, finishing just outside the points positions and will now look to sign off the season in style back on home soil in Valencia.
Álex Márquez – 17th
It was a difficult Sunday, we knew before the race that in the dry it would be difficult for us and there are many, many problems with the bike. So there was not much we could do, also I had the long lap which made things harder. But I’m happy with myself as I know I gave 100% throughout the weekend and also I want to say thanks to the team as they’re still pushing a lot and helping me, so thanks to all the LCR Team. This is our reality, it’s where the bike is and we need to keep going. There is one (race) to go.
