Marc Márquez started from third place on the grid and took the initiative from the opening corner, before steadily establishing an advantage that reached almost 4 seconds when 5 laps from the end.
With the 25 points earned today, Márquez regains the lead of the MotoGP World Championship. With 70 points, he is 1 point ahead of nearest rival Alex Rins.
“This race was a mental race, more than a physical one. After the mistake in Austin it wasn’t easy to lead the race like that from beginning to end, but I knew I had the pace to do it and the bike to do it. I wanted to do a race like in Argentina and at the start in Austin to prove it was a mistake there. I felt good all weekend, smooth, comfortable and able to ride how I want. Thanks to the Repsol Honda Team, they’ve done an amazing job over the last few weeks and here this weekend. It’s great to be leading the championship again.”
