MotoGp, Marc Marquez explains the incident with Enea Bastianini
Marc Marquez increasingly disconsolate
For Marc Marquez, the Silverstone weekend also ended in a retirement.Thus, the nightmarish season continues for the number 93, who has seen the checkered flag in only six Sprint races this year and never at the end of a Grand Prix.
“There were reasons to be satisfied with the weekend,” Marquez told the media, on the sidelines of the closing day of the British weekend. “My goal was to increase my confidence a little bit, as well as to find again a basic set-up for the bike: we succeeded a little bit, but we need more races, different tracks and different situations. I had more situations under control, the sessions were more consistent.”
Then, however, yet another fall: “Bastianini and I were unlucky, these are things that happen – said the Catalan of Honda -. My wing broke on the first lap, in acceleration I had difficulties, as well as in the control of the bike: I forced myself to remain calm, but after it started to drizzle Bastianini had realized he could overtake me and tried.”
“In turns 10 and 11 the asphalt was a little wetter, I went out to the left to avoid a collision but right at that moment Bastianini also slipped and swerved left. Too bad, I wanted to end a weekend without crashes, at least that they were not dictated to excessive risks: I did not ride beyond my limit but I was still unlucky,” Marquez concluded.
