It was surely a more positive day today at Montmeló for Team Gresini MotoGP as in Alex Marquez’s home race see the Spaniard finishing sixth.
These were two important results and surely not a given as Bastianini’s crash on the opening lap forced both Gresini standard bearers – among others – off the track.
No consequences for Alex who as soon as they made it back to the track (quick start procedure) managed to bag some important points for the season, also in light of the event at Misano starting in a few days’ time.
6th – ALEX MARQUEZ #73 (10th in the championship standings with 102 points)
“We knew it would have been a long and challenging race and in the end it was. It was a survival race until the end. We struggled during the whole weekend and sixth is a positive result considering the crash we initial crash. The important thing is that we keep growing and scoring points.”
