Surely not the ending he wanted but still a good result for the Championship. Marc Marquez was beaten by Andrea Dovizioso at the last corner but reigning World Champion still has a lot of advantage in Championship Standings, the most important thing overall and Honda HRC rider knows it really well.
Anyway, Marquez was a bit disappointed for the missed win: “I was expecting Dovi’s move, but I did not know what to do sincerely and what would have been the best choice. We did a great work and a good race, but our rear tyre choice was wrong, we should have selected soft instead of medium. But I told from yesterday that Dovi was on my level”
It was a thrilling crazy start where Dovi and Marc were fighting a lot going wide losing position: “It did not change too much as long as both of us went on top after a few laps, maybe we had to push a little bit more but it was not crucial. I was not able to stop well the bike and had the right grip”.
Reigning World Champion then underlined again the wrong rear tyre choice: “We made a mistake, also last year we were wrong on the rear tyre. These are still 20 points for the Championship, I cannot always win, but we have to gave 100% staying into the limits. My software is planned for the Championship”.
