Marc Marquez Level 7-Happening

0

Marc Marquez bricht alle Rekorde: 25 Jahre alt und bereits 7-facher Weltmeister.

Marc Marquez brachte in Motegi (drei Rennen vor Saisonende) seinen insgesamt siebten WM-Titel unter Dach und Fach. Der 25-jährige Spanier schmetterte zum Sieg, nachdem Andrea Dovizioso in der vorletzten Runde an zweiter Position gestürzt war. Damit ist er in der WM-Tabelle drei Runden vor Saionende nicht mehr einholbar. MM war von der 6ten Position gestartet, erreichte die erste Kurve als Dritter und lag Ende der ersten Runde bereits hinter dem führenden Dovizioso, den er in den folgenden Runden hartnäckig beschattete. Vier Runden vor Schluss überholte Marquez die Ducati in Kurve 9, in der vorletzten Runde kam Dovi dann zu Fall beim Versuch, sich in eine gute Position für ein finales Überholmanöver zu bringen. Hinter Sieger Marquez erreichten Cal Crutchlow als Zweiter und Alex Rins als Dritter das Ziel, Valentino Rossi auf Rang 4.

 

Die ebenso kuriose wie superbe und einfallsreiche Level 7-Sieger-Zeremonie auf der Auslaufrunde lässt sich am besten in dem Video bestaunen:

Marc Marquez: »I feel really, really good. I would say it’s a dream came true, or better, that I’m living a dream. It’s something so special, here together with my team, all the Honda and HRC people, my family and my staff. It has been a great season, and ever since Aragon I’ve been tasting, imagining this title, because it was very close. Then I realized that this wasn’t my style, and I needed extra motivation, so I set the goal of trying to achieve it with my first match ball—in Motegi, by winning the race. This circuit was a challenging one to manage that, but it seems like when I’m under pressure, I feel better on the bike! Today the race was as I expected. I was prepared to make a good start and immediately make some passes. I got to second place at the end of the first lap, and then was able to follow Andrea and stay with him. I thought I could try and attack before the last lap because I felt I had something extra to give. He was pushing very hard and made a mistake, and that’s a shame because he deserved to be here on the podium. That’s also something that I think Dani would deserve at least once this season. Anyway, when I crossed the finish line it was an explosion of joy. My people prepared this Level 7 celebration, but I didn’t know anything ahead of time. I never want to know, but I think it’s because I used to play that kind of game a lot. Now it’s time to celebrate this seventh title and enjoy these final three races.«

93 auf Level 7.
