Exhausted, though, the Honda Repsol rider finished seventh. # 93 He Said After The Race The excitement reigned over when he returned to his mechanics, which were seen on a TV broadcast anyway.
“Of course, emotion is the right word. I am a person who love to hide my feelings, but when I got to the garage where it was all the mechanic, I just exploded and couldn’t contain my feelings. I dreamed for a long time to come back today – ending the motorcycle race. This is the biggest step in my re-qualification. I dreamed of.” With the feeling of being a MotoGP contestant again, that happened today.Marc Marquez said. “It was an explosion of emotions that I couldn’t control, but it was so much fun.”

You know what it would be like when you play football at school with the older kids and they pass you as they like. I didn’t have the speed, I didn’t control the bike and everyone started to overtake me.”
The most deserving of rounds of applause! 👏👏👏
“But I calmed down, I didn’t fight, and I found myself there. I started to gradually increase my rhythm. I got the best lap at the end of the race. I felt better and tried to catch (Alex) Esparjaro again. But then my body said,” It starts over. ” “The last six laps I was sitting on the bike and trying to reach the finish line. But the most important thing is that he succeeded. And when we checked, it turned out that I lost only 13 seconds to (Fabio) Quartararo in the race, which is unbelievable.” – The Spanish added.
