Marc Márquez is in high spirits after his first victory in Moto2 at Le Mans last weekend, but the young Spaniard was still quick to spare a thought for his injured compatriot, Dani Pedrosa...
Hola a todos,
I want to tell you all how happy I’m feeling following my first victory in this category. The team as much as myself needed a good result to turn the page on the first few results which have not reflected the work we have put in.
We knew that Le Mans had to be a turning point and because of that the team worked very hard during the whole weekend to get the bike ready for a fast pace on the track. I want to congratulate the team for their great work and the help that I’ve had since the start of the year. This victory is theirs as much as it is mine.
The truth is that the race did not start as well as we had hoped for but we stayed calm and it ended the way we had dreamed of. I knew that I would have to work hard this weekend in order to get among the first places and that’s what I have done. I will always remember Le Mans as the circuit where I won my first race in Moto2.
Of course I have not forgotten my fans! You’re great and have shown me support since the start of the championship. You have always been there and that’s even more special because not everything has gone as well as I had hoped. That is why I also dedicate this victory to you. Thanks for your support!
After popping the champagne for the first time after a race and celebrating the win with the team, now’s the time to move on and continue working. There are three weeks remaining before the next GP and we want to prepare properly for the home race in Catalunya.
Finally, I cannot leave without mentioning Dani. It is a pity what has happened this weekend, but I am sure that all will go well and that he will get back on his bike even stronger. I want to send him a big hug and lots of encouragement to recover as soon as possible. The championship is very long and I am convinced that he will be fighting until the end. Come on Dani!
Un abrazo a todos,
