MotoGP: All you need to know about Aragon GP

Date:

Álex Márquez repeated his success last time out in France to grab the second podium finish of his rookie MotoGP season, after producing a nail-biting charge to grab second place at the Aragon Grand Prix. Here is all you need to know:

– Having come from 18th place in last week’s wet conditions, Márquez almost repeated the feat in the dry. This time he came from a qualifying position of 11th to apply heavy pressure to eventual race-winner Álex Rins in the closing stages of the race.

– With all eyes initially on the battle at the front, Márquez began quietly putting a charge together and was soon carving through the field. With 15 laps to go he was consistently the fastest rider on the track and had moved up to fifth place.

– With five laps to go, he passed Joan Mir to take second spot, but despite applying constant pressure to the Suzuki of Rins in a thrilling finale, he wasn’t quite able to sneak past for his maiden victory.

– Márquez said: “I want to thank the team because we had an amazing bike again, like in Le Mans, like in Misano too… The start was not really good, but then I started to recover step-by-step… I enjoyed it a lot, I enjoyed each overtake on the last corner. It was unbelievable. This was a dry podium, so I’m really, really happy. “
