In a weekend marked by rain and cold temperatures, the Repsol Honda team could not conclude the British Grand Prix in a positive way.

Marc Márquez started fourteenth on the grid and set a consistent pace, gaining positions and reaching the points. After competing for the Top 10 with Fabio Quartararo and Enea Bastianini for a large part of the race, he unfortunately crashed when riding in eleventh and with the pace to have finished in the Top 10.

Joan Mir had a difficult start to his race at Silverstone. The Repsol Honda Team rider, who did not get off the line well, crashed on the third lap and was unable to rejoin the contest.

The tenth round of the season will be held in two weeks’ time at the Red Bull Ring: The Austrian Grand Prix.

“Our race was complicated from the start as I lost my right wing when I had a small contact in the first lap. Then I crashed in an unlucky situation with Bastianini, but it was the type of crash where you don’t lose any confidence. Without one wing I was losing a lot under acceleration but at one point in the race it started to rain and I was able to make up some ground to the other riders. Aside from this, the weekend was not so bad when we look at our approach and what we were able to do in the race before the crash. We keep working, building our confidence and following our plan.”

“It was not the comeback I had wanted. The start was not good and I lost a lot of positions at the start. Then the feeling, especially under braking, was not what I was expecting and the bike was very nervous. I ran on as a result of this and fell in the gravel. Unfortunately, that’s our Sunday. We need to check everything well with the team and the engineers to improve for the upcoming weekend in Austria. Fortunately I was not hurt in the crash, this is important.”
