Marc Márquez Flying High Winning 11th Title of Season

By | September 1, 2014

The defending world champion Marc Márquez once again pumped up to his best when he snatched his 11th victory of this season. It’s been only 12 races done so far. With this win, Márquez holds a total of 288 points. That is well in the front with a lead of 89 points than Pedrosa who has just 199 points, followed by the nine-time Grand Prix World Champion, Valentino Rossi, with 189 points.

Márquez also won the pole position of the race. He has won 10 pole positions yet out of 12 races. Although, the point-table leader led the race in the beginning, the previous World Champion, Lorenzo, jumped into the first spot taking advance on the mistake committed by Márquez. However, Márquez brought back the position somehow when only seven more laps left in the show. When these two big guns locked their horns together, Márquez crossed the line with a minute lead of 0.732 sec to the triumph. With the second place, Lorenzo’s table counts 157 points. 

After the race, Márquez said that he didn’t expect the thing that happened on race that day. He added that Jorge was so strong from the beginning. So he had to race hard. In the second half of the race his pace was better and going through a tough race he made it on the last few laps.

“A great battle and great to return to victory,” Márquez smiled with proud commenting to the questions of press.

Márquez is also the first rider to win 11 victories in a season after Rossi who figured the same number in 2005.

Coming down to the Moto2 race at the Hertz British Grand Prix, Tito Rabat of Marc VDS Racing Team won the battle on the last lap. He made it with a difference of just 0.063 sec with teammate, Mika Kallio. Meanwhile, Maverick Viñales of Paginas Amarillas HP 40 joined the podium with third place. Unfortunately, the man who was in pole position, Johann Zarco of AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing, could make it only to the fourth spot.

Meantime, the Moto3 race at the Hertz British Grand Prix was won by Alex Rins of SPA Estrella Galicia 0,0 (Honda) finishing in just 38m 11.330s, while his teammate Alex Marquez reached the second place. The third position was secured by Enea Bastianini of ITA Junior Team GO&FUN Moto3 (KTM).

The next race (13th) will take place on September 14, at Misano World Circuit, Italy.
