Great comeback to 9th for Zarco at #MalaysianGP as Martin crashes out of the lead
Jorge Martin starts very well and immediately puts himself in command of the race, managing to stretch over Bagnaia and Bastianini thanks to an excellent pace. Unfortunately, his race ends with 12 laps to go due to a crash in turn 5 that force him to retire.
Zarco, on the other hand, is the protagonist of a great comeback and overtaking after overtaking reaches 9th place at the finish line. These points help Prima Pramac Racing to win “the Best Independent Team” for the second consecutive time.
A positive race all in all, I did a lot of duels and overtaking, the pace was good and the feeling was very positive. The race was really very hard, the heat was unbelievable.
I had one goal and that was victory, I had to try. I was the strongest all weekend and I am happy about that. It will serve as a lesson for me in the future.
