Ducati, Jorge Martin admits, “I was dehydrated, I gave 100%.”
The words of Jorge Martin after the second place in the Indian Grand Prix
Jorge Martin finished in second place the Grand Prix of India, moving closer and closer to the MotoGP leader, Pecco Bagnaia, now only 13 points away in the overall standings. The Spanish centaur had more than one difficulty finishing the race, due to a problem with the suit, which è opened a few laps from the end, and the fact that he was dehydrated.
“It’ was a long day, a very long weekend. I started well but on the first lap I realized that the medium tire was not the right one – he amesso to the microphones of Sky Sports -. Too bad because I had the pace to stay with "Bez" (Marco Bezzecchi, winner of the race, ed). He did an incredible race but I could have stayed with him".
"When I saw ‘Pecco’ (Bagnaia) fall I tried to finish the race. Unfortunately, I was dehydrated and struggled to get to the finish line. There’è was a good duel with Fabio (Quartararo). As for the suit, it seems it wasn’t closed very well, I managed to close it and at 200 per hour it’s not easy and I lost more than a second. I am happy, we look forward" concluded Martin.
