Marc Márquez crashes out of the lead at Termas de Río Hondo, the second race of the season. Reigning World Champion started from pole position and opened a gap of more than two seconds in three laps.
On Lap 4, Repsol Honda rider crashed at Turn 2 due to a lack of front tyre grip.
Marc Márquez: “I was feeling really good on the bike. I was able to ride strong, as we made a great improvement to the setup in the warm-up, which made me feel pretty comfortable on my bike. The crash was unexpected; I must have made a small mistake, and it cost me a lot.
Luckily I’m okay, but these kinds of mistakes disappoint me, as everything was going well. Anyway, we must put this behind us and think of the next race in Austin”.
