Sprint Race Silverstone, Marc Marquez’s frustration.

All the dissatisfaction of Marc Marquez at the end of the Silverstone Sprint Race, starter of the British Grand Prix, which he finished in 18th position.

“On this wet day I was expecting to be closer to the leaders, but already this morning I was struggling a lot, although I could more or less ride. I took some risks to try to reach Q2, but I was far away. In the Sprint the feeling was not good, I asked myself, ‘What do I do?’ I was driving and didn’t understand anything. I decided to wait for the other Hondas and followed Joan Mir to see the behavior of the other bike, to see if it was just happening to me. I saw that by risking more I would have finished 14th or 15th. But where are you going like that?” the six-time MotoGP world champion told Sky Sport MotoGP, quoted by formulapassion.it.

“I decided this, in the last laps I let Joan pass to see what happened to his bike,” Marc continued. “He also complained about the behavior and was struggling like me. The Sprint I considered it a kind of additional free practice right from the start, useful to understand things. Tomorrow in the race I will try to stay between 10th and 15th position and take some points. The future? We’ll see how the next races go, what will come from Japan and how the test with the new bike in Misano will go. I have to do this. I broke three bones in five races held and I have to change my approach. I’m doing this, it’s hard but it has to be done. Otherwise I won’t make it to next year at all. How am I doing? I’m at 70 percent.”
