Marc Marquez once again put on a top-notch performance at the Catalunya MotoGP. Thanks to his patience, Marquez, who started from 14th position, managed to finish 3rd.

Marc Marquez makes a surprise (again). Starting the race from the back row apparently didn’t make The Baby Aliens discouraged. The 2024 Catalunya MotoGP qualifying session did not go smoothly for Marquez. He only managed to be the 14th fastest.

But when racing is a different story, the eight-time world champion can do it well. During the Sprint Race on Saturday, Marquez managed to finish second. Furthermore, in Sunday’s race, he crawled up 11 positions and finished the race in 3rd position, after overtaking Aleix Espargaro three laps before the finish.

Personally, third place is very important for Marquez considering that this circuit is his least favorite.

“What a weekend. Back again, from 14th position to 3rd position, this one because of patience. Thank you to everyone who enjoyed the Catalan GP to the fullest,” wrote Marquez on his Instagram account.

Marquez further explained that tire selection played an important role in his success in Catalunya. Marquez chose soft tires like Pedro Acosta, Jack Miller and teammate Alex Marquez.

“I am very happy with the data analysis, because in the past when I was at Honda I could always determine which situations should use soft and where medium-hard should be used. This choice is actually not clear to me here and today,” said Marquez.

During the warm-up session, Marquez tried out the medium rear tire but didn’t get a good feeling with the motorbike. For this reason, in the last minutes before the race, he chose to use soft tires. The strategy turned out to be fruitful. The Gresini Racing rider was able to stand on the podium again. This victory also made Marquez extremely happy.

You can see him dancing at turn 12 in front of his fans. Thanks to the results in Catalunya, Marquez is in third place in the standings just below Jorge Martin and Francesco Bagnaia. Interestingly, he is only two points behind Bagnaia, who is second in the standings.
