Miraculous Alex Marquez recovers for Virtual GP podium at the Red Bull Ring

A resurgent Alex Marquez returned to the rostrum after twice crashing due to the mistakes of others, Repsol Honda Team team-mate Marc Marquez making in a double top five for the team.





The second #StayAtHomeGP of 2020 proved to be the most dramatic yet as riders frantic fought over ten laps at the Red Bull Ring. Qualifying between the riders was close with  just a tenth splitting the front row. Alex continued his run of form to take third on the grid with Marc just a tenth behind in fourth.



After winning the first race, Alex Marquez was looking strong again but was unfortunately twice forced off by other riders. Despite two crashes, the 23-year old remained focused and charged through the field to continue his perfect podium record with a well-earned third place at the Red Bull Ring.



Marc Marquez again proved to be competitive on his virtual Honda RC213V and landed his best finish of the series yet with fourth. Trying to stay out of trouble in the early laps, the World Champion found himself in contention for the podium by mid-race. Unfortunately a mistake while battling with his team mate saw Marc slip out of the battle for the top three, taking solid points with fourth.

“An exciting race! I’m happy to be back on the podium after an intense race at the Red Bull Ring. There were some very aggressive riders in the race and I crashed twice with the others.



For sure being able to get a podium finish with two crashes is something very special so I have to really enjoy this, even if I thought I could have fought for victory again. This is racing! I hope everyone who watched had a good time, it was fun to go racing with everyone again.”

“Like the first race it was really fun to race with everyone. We were in the top five so I’m happy with the consistency and we were a little closer to where we want to be. The most important thing is we put on a nice show for the fans again. Congratulations again to Alex for another podium."
