mobilinanews (United States) – Austin Circuit is in the State of Texas, USA. An area known as a nest of cowboys in old American films. At that circuit Marc Marquez was not just a cowboy, but served as sheriff. He’s the leader.
The entire anticlockwise circuit on the MotoGP calendar is becoming more and more real as a track of Marquez’s strength and power. He is dominant at the Spanish Aragon circuit, Germany’s Sachsenring and Austin in the US.
If at the Sachsenring he was nicknamed The King of Sachsenring by buying up all the series he participated in there, now in Austin Marc Marquez is ordained as sheriff.
He led a mob of MotoGP iron horse riders who were in the land of the cowboys. With a horse named RC213V, Marquez strengthened his position as sheriff with an absolute victory at the US GP which took place on Sunday (3-10-2021) afternoon US time or Monday (4/10/2021) early morning WIB.
Starting from the order of 3, he immediately took over the leadership of the race after the first corner and was not overtaken to the finish line.
When he touched the finish line, the Spaniard did a wheelie with his motorbike and made a gesture as if he was riding a horse.
Since Austin held the MotoGP series, this is Marquez’s 7th win from 8 titles. Only the 2019 season, he failed to win the title due to an accident.
“Everything went according to plan. The strategy at the start line was exactly as prepared, immediately gaspol to the first corner. The last few laps my tires dropped, but I felt comfortable because Fabio (Quartararo) was far behind. I feel more secure because I don’t think he will take it. risk chasing because what he’s after are points for the world championship,” said the cowboy, who scored Honda’s 450th podium in the premier class since 1995.
From the start, Marquez felt that the Austin series was his best chance to score a victory in the remainder of the 2021 season. This was also his second win this season after the Sachsenring. While in Aragon, he was runner up after losing to Francesco Bagnaia in overtaking the last few laps.
The impeccable appearance in Austin at the same time reflected the physical condition of MM93 as he recovered from a right fracture last year which left him on complete rest for 8 months. Also confirms the readiness of the RC213V to fight for the trophy next year.
In the 2021 standings, Marquez is ranked 7th with a total of 117 points. Of the 15 races that have been held this season, Marquez has missed two series in Qatar because he still has to rehabilitate. He has only been down since the Portuguese GP with the results of finishing zone points in 9 races, and retired (accidents) in 4 other races.
With the remaining 3 races this season, Marquez still has the opportunity to poke into the Top 5 group of the final standings. He still has the potential to overtake Johann Zarco and Brad Binder who are ranked 5th and 6th with 141 and 131 points respectively.
It is even possible to shift Jack Miller in the Top 4 with 149 points. (rnp)
