Marco Bezzecchi finishes wet #JapaneseGP in 4th place
Marco Bezzecchi finishes the Japanese GP with another important placing in the top 5, thus confirming the third place in the overall standings with 265 points (P2 among the Teams with 400 points).
Starting from fourth place on the grid under the sudden pouring rain on the Ducati Desmosedici GP del Mooney VR46 Racing Team, Marco lost ground at the start and was forced to recover from the P11. Immediately in the garage at the end of the first lap to change the bike, he managed to climb up the rankings to the third step of the podium, a position he lost just a few turns from the red flag.
MARCO BEZZECCHI – 72
On the one hand I am happy with the final placing, considering that we have never ridden in the wet here, we were in the strongest group until the red flag. I started well, but at the first corner, to avoid Pecco, I crashed with two other riders. Then at turn three, I felt another bump and found myself at the back of the group. I took full advantage of the opportunity and immediately changed the bike, not bad for being the first flag to flag of my career. The sensations were good, I was in the group with the strongest guys, but I was really struggling to ride with my references. I had to pick up the pace a little and Marquez overtook me. After the red flag, I imagined we wouldn’t start again: it was really too dangerous for everyone.
