Marquez Extends Moto3 World Championship Lead With Win at Motegi

Posted:

Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Honda) extended the Moto3 World Championship lead with a thrilling win at Motegi.

The younger brother of MotoGP champion Marc is now 25 points clear of erstwhile leader Jack Miller (KTM). He also set a new lap record in today‰Ûªs race.

"Our approach during the weekend was difficult, because we never really found our way, but in the qualifying session, and especially the warmup, we took a step forward." Marquez explained.

"I felt very comfortable on the bike in the race. I knew it would be hard and I began well, making my best start of the year. From then I tried to stay focused.

"When I was behind Miller and Kent I had a little more than them, but when I passed them they overtook me on the next corner. I stayed behind them and kept calm, and when I saw that they were going wide I kept my line when braking.

"I'm very happy to win again here. I have to thank Honda because we had a very fast bike.‰Û
