Three penalty positions for Alex Marquez
It rains in the wet at Marquez’s house. After Marc’s crash in the closing laps of the Le Mans GP, which cost the Honda centaur the podium, the MotoGP stewards imposed a three-place grid penalty on his brother Alex for an irresponsible maneuver involving Brad Binder and Luca Marini in the initial stages of the race.
“The number 73 rider, Alex Marquez, has been given a penalty of three places on the grid for the next race of the Grand Prix in which he participates due to his excessive enthusiasm at turn 6 on the first lap of the French GP” this is the statement issued by MotoGP.
Relegation on the grid will only be valid for the Sunday race, while there are no penalties for the Sprint Race on Saturday.
