MARCO BEZZECCHI – 72
Not the race I was hoping for – I recovered well in qualifying after the crash, but I made at least three mistakes in the race. At the start I used the device at the wrong time and Binder and Marquez overtook me. Then the overtaking on Zarco and also the first attempt on Marquez because perhaps I tried at a point where he was very strong. I wasted a lot of time and lost contact with the top riders. I’m happy with the sensations while riding, let’s turn the page on the race.
