COTA confirms Marc Marquez’s track: seventh win in Austin for “Cabroncito”
The Austin Sheriff places another hit on the Circuit of the Americas, increasingly home to Marc Marquez. The Spaniard places his seventh US win at the end of a solo race from start to finish: “The plan was exactly that, start well and slow down and then push when there was more degradation. I was comfortable, I pass fast and everything went like this. I was tired and it was difficult to stay focused, but my instincts told me that Quartararo would slow down because he wants to fight for the championship. “
“Here on the podium we are all happy, me more for the victory, Fabio for the podium and perhaps a little less Pecco. But he will certainly be strong in Misano” said the Spaniard.
Enthusiasm and maximum satisfaction also for Fabio Quartararo, second on the podium and in extension in the world rankings on Francesco Bagnaia: “The feeling is even more beautiful than a victory, physically it was difficult but seeing this result and arriving in front of Pecco is beautiful. I’m happy to be able to keep my advantage in the standings “.
