It was an incredible race, which had everyone hold their breaths up until the chequered flag.
Martin and Zarco were protagonists of the race after getting off to a good start. They took part in incredible duels with the likes of Marquez, Quartararo, and Bagnaia.
With ten laps to go, at the ninth turn, a harmless slip, unfortunately, put an end to Johann’s race.
With four laps to go to the chequered flag, it began to rain, completely changing everything: Martin returned to the box to swap bikes (which turned out to be the correct strategy). Martin then crossed the finish line and earned himself an extraordinary third place.
I am in seventh heaven. After having swapped bikes, I didn’t think to be able to reach the podium, then I began making great overtakes therefore by the time I had reached the finish line, I was third. I am very proud of what we are achieving.
I am sad and slightly disappointed; I repeated the same mistake I made this morning during the warm-up session.
I tried to push myself to the limit to stay with the group and slipped. I am sorry because we had worked well all weekend.
