POINTS FINISH FOR ALEX MARQUEZ IN AUSTIN
LCR Honda CASTROL rider Álex Márquez took a points finish in the Grand Prix of The Americas as he ended in 12th position on Sunday. After mixed weather across the weekend, round 15 of the 2021 MotoGP calendar took place in warm, sunny conditions in Texas and Álex fought hard throughout to claim four more World Championship points.
Departing from the fifth row of the grid, the Spaniard made a good getaway from the line and improved by three places on the first lap. He showed patience and consistency to maintain that position and eventually finished just four seconds behind the second Honda of Pol Espargaro in tenth.
