First podium for Márquez

In finishing third in the Argentine Grand Prix, Álex Márquez gave the Estrella Galicia 0.0 Marc VDS team their first podium of the season. On his side, Miguel Oliveira scored his first points in MotoGP.

With experience, Álex Márquez has learned not to be too greedy.
“Not so long ago, I might have tried to do too much,” said the former Moto3 world champion. “This time, when I saw that Baldassari was getting away at the end of the race, I didn’t try to catch him, I preferred to make sure we scored the points for third place. I know that I still have to change the way I ride to properly use our new bike. With the Triumph engine, the trajectories and tire management are different from what they were last year. We’ll build up power from race to race.”

For his team-mate Xavi Virgo, the race at Termas de Rio Honda unfortunately ended before it started. Just when he had made pole position, the second of his career in Grand Prix, Xavi Virgin was the victim of an electrical problem in the warm-up lap that prevented him from taking the start. On the side of the Red Bull KTM Tech 3 team, Miguel Oliveira caused a sensation by scoring his first points in MotoGP with a well-earned eleventh place finish, on the heels of Pol Espargaro, the official rider of the Austrian brand. Hafizh Syahrin finished 16th just short of the points, as did Marc Bezzecchi in Moto2. Phillip Oettl passed the finish line in nineteenth place.

The Championship

With sixteen points on the third step of the podium, Álex Márquez is fourth in the Moto2 world championship. Xavi Virgin has dropped back to fourteenth position. In MotoGP, with his first five points Miguel Oliveira is in the standings in fifteenth place, just two points behind Jorge Lorenzo.
