A race to remember for Alex Rins, who surely will watch the race again when he will come back home. Suzuki rider made an incredible last lap to be able to snatch victory from Marc Marquez’s hands who seemed to have situation under control but the Spaniard from Suzuki did not agree and gave everything until last meter and at the end it paid off.
British GP winner knew it was fast in some parts of the track: “It is not easy to beat Marc until the end, I think we made an incredible race. I thought a lot during the whole race where I could make a move, he was faster than me but I had a lot of pace in the first and last sector. I knew that Marc and Fabio were faster than us but at the same time I knew that I could fight for the victory if I stayed with them in the first laps”
It was indeed a crazy start where Alex even took a big risk: “I had a big moment at the start, I was near to crash and also in the final stages of the race where I struggled a bit and risked a lot, but with two laps to go I saw Marc he was trying to push over the limits and I said to myself ‘Ok Alex, give everything you can!’ “.
This is a big step up for him and Suzuki, after hard times in the previous races: “Comparing this bike to 2016 one, it is totally different, we develop a lot to improve some areas. Despite the mistakes in Assen and Sachsenring, I was everytime in top positions, I am really happy. I planned my last decisive move, I knew I had to stay really close to Marquez, I tried and it was nice being able to win at the last corner”
