He fought for the podium until the penultimate round.
The Grand Prix of Great Britain has experienced a thrilling show in MotoGP, in which Marc Márquez has opted for the podium until the penultimate turn, finishing at the gates of the places of honor. In the race, a group of up to 5 pilots formed by Crutchlow, Rossi, Iannone, Márquez and Pedrosa has been postulated in search of the second position, behind an outstanding Maverick Viñales who has achieved his first triumph. In the penultimate turn and when Marquez rolled third, he has gone long in an attempt to overtake Crutchlow and has lost three places in favor of English, Rossi and Pedrosa. The World Cup leader has managed to overtake his teammate on the last lap, finishing both just 1 second off the podium. With two thirds of the season completed, Márquez continues to lead the Championship with 210 points and 50 ahead of the second.
Marc Márquez: “Today was one of those difficult Sundays, because you could pose in many ways, with many possible options of both front and rear tires. Perhaps we have been wrong with the one in front, because we have chosen the soft compound, but it was what we thought before leaving. I realized once in the race and from there, I decided to get the most out of the situation. It’s a shame that when I was fighting for the second position, I went long in a braking, although in the end we managed to fix it quite well. We finished fourth and only lost three points of our advantage in the general, which is what matters to us “.
