LCR Honda CASTROL rider Alex Márquez produced a superb ride in wet conditions to take 8th position at Sunday’s Grand Prix of Thailand. The race was delayed by an hour due to a deluge of rain at Buriram and, when the action finally got underway, it was on a sodden track at the Chang International Circuit.
Alex Márquez – 8th: “We were really lucky because it started to rain during the Moto2 race. We knew at that moment we had an opportunity to do a good job and we did that. In the first few laps I was feeling really good, unfortunately the rain didn’t continue, because on a wet track we were really, really fast and I felt comfortable. As the track started to dry out, I suffered a lot and the race was a little bit too long. I’m happy for the team for this result, and we’ll keep going. We have three (races) to go and need to keep believing we can make a good result. Big thank you to all of them.”
