Marc Márquez: “If you see the final result, you wouldn’t have the complete picture of our race”


The Spanish MotoGP rider Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda) has assured that the ninth place achieved this Sunday in the Indian Grand Prix race does not do justice to “the complete picture” of his performance at the Buddh International Circuit, and has He highlighted that he had a pace “very similar” to that of Frenchman Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha), third.

“If you just look at the final result and see ninth, you wouldn’t have the complete picture of our race, but getting what could be considered our ‘normal’ result, after a crash, is positive. It was a very small crash, because I was pulling very hard to stay in the slipstream of the bikes in front, but I went a little too far and I fell,” he said in statements provided by his team.

Furthermore, the man from Cervera acknowledged that he faced the race “with the motivation of the podium in the sprint race” on Saturday. “So when I saw that ‘Pecco’ and Martín made a mistake, I decided that I had to try it. That led me to make a mistake. The most important thing is that I finished the race and in general our pace was very similar to Quartararo, so I think we can be happy with what we have done this weekend,” he concluded.
