MADRID, 30 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Spanish MotoGP rider Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda) acknowledged that he is far from the podium ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix but he was “happy” with Saturday and with fifth place on the grid, where he once again had to “follow some pilots”, something that “before was the other way around”.
“I’m very happy with how it went today, because I tried to survive, follow some riders and push to the limit and also try to find my rhythm alone,” he said in statements provided by his team, after Q2 in Jerez.
The man from Cervera confessed that he would like to be the one to set the pace and speed, as before, after Friday’s controversy with Aleix Espargaró and the complaints from the Aprilia man for following his wheel. “We are far from the podium, however, starting fifth will help me a lot for the race, but it will be difficult”, he pointed out.
“Yes, following a driver for a lap allows you to win in some areas, but it can cause problems in others. Before it was the other way around and people were looking for my wheel, of course I would like it to be the other way around but right now I try to find something “, term.
