Marquez opened the vote after the Austrian MotoGP race, according to him successfully topping the standings to date is more important than winning. Marquez must recognize the superiority of Dovizioso and Desmosedici GP in the Red Bull Ring.
Since the first lap had been fierce fighting with Dovi, Marquez’s 10th corner widened and the gap was successfully exploited by Dovizioso to take over the race leader.
Red Bull Ring is indeed not a friendly track for Honda and Marquez, this circuit layout is more suitable for Desmosedici GP. But the driver is not without effort, The Baby Alien has struggled to the end.
“I have a winning mentality, I have tried to pursue victory in this race. We realized Dovi was on one of his best circuits, so we fought until the last lap. Based on experience, if you win the title at the end of the season, no one remembers the course of this race, until next season, “Marquez said after the race was quoted from the motorsport page .
Marquez Still Has A Large Chance To Defend His Title
Marquez has blocked pole positions more than Mick Doohan 59 times. This time I really have to admit the defeat of Dovizioso, but what is shown by Marquez is good considering this circuit is always less friendly for RC213V.
The defeat of Dovizioso in the Red Bull Ring does not make Marquez’s position shifted, comfortably at the top with a 58-point advantage and his chances of retaining the MotoGP title this season are still wide open.
“For me this podium is very important, especially in one of the tracks where we have not yet felt the victory – the positive is finishing second again – even though I have felt failing to finish, so far being runner up is my worst finish,” said The Baby Alien .
Racing in Austrian MotoGP is indeed somewhat exciting, a classic duel between re-presented, like Deja Vu in the 2017 MotoGP. The defeat of Dovizioso added Marquez’s motivation to achieve better results.
“Of course this defeat gives more motivation, but I gave a warning (Saturday) that Dovizioso did appear so crazy. The race this time is proof that it’s not like what people thought last week said boring, “he continued.
