Marquez: "I had a lot of problems with the front end"

Marquez: 'I had a lot of problems with the front end'

The GP of France was a tough race for the Repsol Honda riders.

As Marc began to experience difficulty with the front, he lost places and by lap five he had dropped down to 6th place. He passed both Smith and Iannone into 4th place, then a battle ensued with Iannone with the two riders fighting for five laps and passing each other several times. Marc finally held on to take 4th and 13 important Championship points.

Marquez: "The temperature rose sharply; we had not ridden in such conditions at any time this the weekend. On the fourth lap I started to notice that I had a lot of problems with the front end. I think all the Hondas had the same trouble; in fact a lot crashed after losing front grip because we were really suffering. We knew that with a rise in temperature, conditions change, but we expected it to be for the better and this time it was for the worse. We must learn from this race and especially from the data we have gathered."
