HONDA, MARQUEZ HAVE A PRACTICALLY UNASSAILABLE LEAD
IN THE EARLY MOMENTS OF THE CHAMPIONSHIP, IT SEEMED TO BE A HARD SEASON FOR HONDA AND MARQUEZ, BUT IT IS NOT. AFTER FIVE GP, THE JAPANESESPANISH COUPLE HAS VROOMED AWAY FROM THE REST OF RIDERS. LE MANS, A CIRCUIT THAT HAS NOT BEEN POSITIVE FOR GOLDEN-WING BIKES OVER THE PAST YEARS, WAS THE STAGE FOR A NEW MASTER CLASS GIVEN BY A RIDER THAT SEEMS TO BE FROM ANOTHER GALAXY.
The French GP puts an end to a five-race cycle where Honda and Marquez have climbed up to the top. Marc’s wins in Le Mans Bugatti Circuit is the third in 2018, in a season where satellite bikes have played the leading role. Yamaha Tech 3, ridden by Zarco, has broken two lap records in the circuits of Losail and Le Mans. The French rider undoubtedly deserves more credit than the bike, since everybody knows that Yamaha is facing a crisis marked by the low performance of its official riders and Zarco gets no support from the maker.
