A superlative weekend draws to a close for Team Gresini MotoGP with Alex Marquez who after a pole position and a fifth place in the sprint race managed to step on the podium at the end of an extenuating race that was complicated by weather conditions.
Today’s third place marks the Spaniard’s first trip to the rostrum in 896 days – the previous one dated back to Aragon 2020 – and allows his to leave Argentina with the fourth place in the championship standings.
3rd – ALEX MARQUEZ #73 (4th in the standings with 33 points)
“We did a smart race: it was important to stay upright and score points. The race was extremely long, and I would have signed up for this type of results before the trip to Argentina. We’re leaving here in a very satisfied mood: Zarco had something more in the final stretch of the race and it’s good this face. I wasn’t expecting such a start to the season. Maybe being fourth in the championship is a bit of an irrealistic position, but we’re improving day after day and we’re there.”
