Marc Márquez he intoned the “mea culpa” without hesitation in the accident that he starred in with the also Spanish Jorge Martin during the first lap of the MotoGP British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Márquez explained that the first thing he did at the end of the race was to apologize to Jorge Martín.

“It is the first thing I have done when the race of MotoGP; I went to apologize to the team at his workshop but he was not there, so I went to look for him at his ‘hospitality’, where I was eating and I sat with him for a while, I have apologized to him and I have told him that it was completely my mistake, “explains Márquez.

“It tastes bad to me, because both he and I had rhythm to fight for the podium, but today it was like that and I was too optimistic in overtaking since it was the first lap and it was not necessary, “acknowledges the Repsol Honda rider.

“It is true that he and Quartararo came a little out of line and that has made me overconfident that I could overtake him on the inside, without thinking that he was not in the right gear, that he was not well positioned, and that neither he nor I were on the right line, “said Márquez.

“When I wanted to cut gas, it was coming too fast and I have not been able to do anything, just apologize because I feel very bad about ruining the race and the weekend of another driver and a team, although luckily this has happened to me very few times in my sports career on a Sunday “, he recalls Marc Márquez.

Jorge Martín appreciates the apologies but regrets the incident

For his part, Jorge Martín thanked Marc Márquez for the apology for the incident: “He has come to apologize and we have been talking, he has told me that he has measured badly and I thank him very much for coming, he has told me that this year things are not working out for him, although the bad thing about this incident is that it has also taken me ahead“lamented the” rookie “of the category.

“About the incident, I can’t say a lot either because I think the overtaking could have been done and I was on the line I was playing, but when he went to overtake he lifted the bike a bit, which up to there I don’t understand it eitherMaybe he thought I was going to go longer, but in the end he came in and we touched. That’s it, no more, “said Martín.

It is clear that in the first round it is not necessary to go like this, but in the end we had a contact before and another after, and in the second we went to the ground, a shame, because in the end it is a great weekend that we have thrown away, but it is still an experience for him future and this year I have nothing at stake and it doesn’t affect me that much, “explained the Ducati rider.
