Points finish for Alex Marquez in Austin

04.10.2021: LCR Honda CASTROL rider Álex Márquez took a points finish in the Grand Prix of The Americas as he ended in 12th position on Sunday. After mixed weather across the weekend, round 15 of the 2021 MotoGP calendar took place in warm, sunny conditions in Texas


LCR Honda CASTROL rider Álex Márquez took a points finish in the Grand Prix of The Americas as he ended in 12th position on Sunday. After mixed weather across the weekend, round 15 of the 2021 MotoGP calendar took place in warm, sunny conditions in Texas and Álex fought hard throughout to claim four more World Championship points.



Departing from the fifth row of the grid, the Spaniard made a good getaway from the line and improved by three places on the first lap. He showed patience and consistency to maintain that position and eventually finished just four seconds behind the second Honda of Pol Espargaro in tenth.





Álex Márquez – 12th



“We finished P12 today, I’m not really happy because it’s not the position I wanted to be in and it’s not the performance we needed to show. But I gave 100% throughout the race, the main problem was the rear grip which did not feel good from the beginning to the end.


But I was able to keep the lap times and my rhythm quite constant. I made a big mistake on lap seven when I went straight on the back straight at turn 12 and lost three or four seconds there, without that I think the top 10 was possible. It was not the race I expected, I expected a little better so we need to keep pushing.

 

Now, we have three weeks to rest and to reflect on it.  We’ll be looking to make a step forward and be more competitive in Misano.”
