Marquez: "I was on the limit"

Marquez: 'I was on the limit'

After starting from 13th Marquez made his way up to 2nd place, only to crash out of the race with 5 laps remaining.

The reigning World Champion crashed out on turn 3 while battling for second place with Andrea Iannone.

Marquez: "It was a shame about the crash today, because I had already done the hardest part! I'm happy because I was able to carry out our plan, which was to try to recover positions on the first five laps. We were up into second place after four laps, but when the tyre grip went down we had a similar problem to before, with the tyre sliding on corner entry. I was on the limit and when you are pushing at the maximum sometimes things happen like they did today. We have dropped quite far behind in the standings, but Honda are working hard and together we will keep pushing to improve the feeling with the bike for the second half of the season."
