Alex Márquez (Cervera, 04/23/1996) has achieved his first title of international importance today at the circuit of Albacete, when proclaiming champion of the CEV Buckler in the newly created category of Moto3 in the absence of a race to be played, in a season in which it accumulates two victories and two second positions in the six races disputed until now.
The youngest of the Márquez thus obtains a title that escaped him last season in the last race played in Jerez and fell to the hands of his teammate in the Monlau Competition, Alex Rins. This time his biggest competitor was the German Luca Amato, who today was giving his options to the championship with a fall when he was fighting for the places of honor.
This is how Márquez explained his weekend, complicated after the small injury he suffers on his wrist, due to a crash in the last Moto3 World Championship race, where he participates with the Ambrogio team from Indianapolis: “We knew it would be a hard weekend. because of the wrist injury, since Friday it has cost a lot, but little by little we have managed to get the bike ready and go fast “and added:” For the race I did not know how my doll was going to respond, in the end I resented a little bit.”
As for his 4th place in the race, he commented: “When I saw that Luca fell, I decided to stay where I was.”
Finally on the title he added: “I am very happy for this championship, which last year I escaped by very little, and to thank all those who have helped me to achieve it.”
Now Márquez will leave for Italy to play the San Marino Grand Prix next weekend, but he will do so with a title of Spanish champion in his pocket, something his brother could not do before disembarking in the 125cc world championship.
