Excelencias del Motor - - Moto Gp -

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.
