Marquez blog: Thirteen golden points

Marquez blog: Thirteen golden points

It’s been a tough weekend.

In his official blog for Marc Marquez talks about his battle with Iannone (and the track temperature) in Le Mans:

It’s been a tough weekend. At this GP, generally the forecast complicates things first, but we’ve got to say that this time it was fine this Sunday.

We had a good day on Saturday. We had a good qualifying session and that was proof that we were doing a good job over the weekend. Sunday’s result is the only thing that took away from hard work from the previous days.

In the warm up the track temperature was about 15 degrees, and I was the fastest and very happy with the set up we had.

Unfortunately, for the first time in the weekend, when the race started the track temperature had doubled, and this changed completely my feeling with the bike and I was not able to push at all.

In a situation like this, in any case, having been able to get fourth is very positive. There’s thirteen points to the top spot, thirteen points that can be very important. In the last laps, I had a really nice battle with Iannone who made the last part of the race more fun. It was almost like a Moto2 kind of battle!

Despite the fact that we couldn’t finish the race on the podium, in order to thank them from there, I’ll do it here now on the blog: once again, thanks to the fans for the way they welcomed us in Le Mans. I know that I’ve said it many times, but it’s a privilege to have a fan club like we do. As you can see in the photo, wherever we go the support for me and my brother is incredible. They are impressive.

By the way, this week we’re going to Lleida for the presentation of my brother Alex’s book in which he tells how it was getting the Moto3 title. I wouldn’t miss it for the world!
