Vierge finishes in top ten

After four withdrawals in a row, Xavi Vierge made it to the chequered flag of the British Grand Prix. The Spaniard even ranked in the top ten.

“My goal was to finish the race, I’m happy to have achieved that, even though the result was not the one I was hoping for.” At the arrival of the British Grand Prix, Xavi Vierge was positive. “I had to get back on track after four withdrawals in a row. I may have been a little too careful at the start of the race, but I really wanted to avoid any problems.” Leading the way after clinching his third pole position of the season, Álex Márquez seemed capable of chalking up another victory. Unfortunately the Marc VDS rider fell during the sixth lap while he was ahead of Jorge Navarro. “I made a mistake, I admit, but it’s the first of the season,” explained the former Moto3 world champion. “We must learn from it and come back to earth. Things may have been a little too easy for me lately. I am sorry for the team who once again did a great job this weekend; I’ll do my best to redeem myself in the next race at Misano.” The KTM Tech 3 riders also missed out on the Silverstone circuit. In MotoGP, Miguel Oliveira was hit early in the race by Johann Zarco while he could have made the top ten once again. Hafizh Syarhin managed to score points, something he has not done since the Dutch Grand Prix, ranking thirteenth. “The pace wasn’t great, but after three falls in the last three races, I lacked confidence,” commented the Malaysian. In Moto2, Marco Bezzecchi complained about the grip of his machine. The Italian took the chequered flag in nineteenth position while Philipp Oettl was ranked twenty-fourth.

The Championship

Despite his fall – his second Did Not Finish of the season – Alex Marquez is still the firm leader in the Moto2 rankings. The Marc VDS rider still has a thirty-five point lead over Augusto Fernandez. Xavi Vierge stays in fourteenth place. No change either for Marco Bezzecchi, still twenty-fourth with thirty-three points. In MotoGP, Miguel Oliveira has lost two spots and has dropped to seventeenth place. Hafizh Syahrin is now twenty-fourth with six points on the scoreboard.
