Marc Marquez’s Le Mans Masterclass: From P13 to Podium with a Mix of Skill, Strategy, and Luck



Marc Marquez Climbs from 13th to 2nd: "A Mix of Gut Feeling and Fortuitous Timing"

Marc Marquez: "The beginning can be about following your gut, and other times, it's about having a stroke of luck."

Marc Marquez combined his seasoned expertise, natural intuition, and a bit of fortune to deliver an outstanding season-opening performance at the 2024 MotoGP race in Le Mans.

Following an unexpected exit in Q1, Marquez made a remarkable recovery from 13th position, securing a second-place finish in the sprint race, right behind the series front-runner, Jorge Martin.

Excitement surrounds Marc Marquez's daring maneuvers, rising 11 spots during the Le Mans sprint.

"Marc Marquez began, 'The idea initially was to… [laughs] just kidding! Actually, this morning we took a step forward, and I began to really get a feel for the bike,' he shared."

This past weekend was a significant learning experience for us. We gained a considerable amount of knowledge, and on Friday, we made several errors and took the wrong path.

"However, our response today was hindered because the first quarter posed significant challenges, and honestly, I wasn't persuaded. I could attribute our errors to the caution indicated by the yellow flag, yet, I remained unconvinced."

"I sensed I was fast, yet it wasn't evident. During the sprint, observing the beginning and the initial lap mattered, but what truly counted were the subsequent laps."

"The speed in the low 31s and high 30s, comparable to what Martin and Bezzecchi achieved as the quickest on the circuit, is what truly matters and brings me joy."

Marquez was knocked out of the initial qualifying round when a last-minute effort by Miguel Oliveira pushed the ex-Honda competitor out of the leading two spots.

However, the eight-time world champion made a remarkable comeback, advancing nine positions in the first lap.

In the beginning, he ingeniously crafted several of those moves while overtaking Fabio Quartararo, Pedro Acosta, and Jack Miller on the outside at turn 2.

"Indeed, the initial launch and the opening lap were crucial to the race," Marquez mentioned. "That's a fact, but the beginning can be a matter of instinct or sometimes you just have to have a bit of luck."

"Undoubtedly, we got off to an excellent beginning, and I was completely focused on executing it well."

"At times it's achievable and at other times, it's not. However, we later demonstrated consistent speed."

"I was gradually catching up to Bezzecchi, and it was fantastic."

Is it possible for Marquez to repeat his impressive beginning in the upcoming Sunday's grand prix?

Marquez summarized, "The most disappointing aspect today was landing in 13th place at the start. And then there's that final lap by Miguel Oliveira [laughs].

"I didn't make it past the second qualifying round, which is the toughest setback of the weekend, but we have to move past it and seek the best outcome."

"Tomorrow could be humid, so it's important we grasp the circumstances fully and make the most out of them."
