Repsol Honda Team end difficult Mugello weekend

The Italian Grand Prix was overshadowed by the heartbreaking news of Jason Dupasquier’s passing. The Repsol Honda Team and HRC would like to extend their deepest condolences to Jason’s family, friends and team at this difficult time.

Unfortunately, after a promising start, Marc Marquez’s race lasted just over a lap as he fell at turn three on lap two. Marquez walked away unharmed in the fall.

Round seven follows immediately, the paddock heading to Barcelona for the Catalan GP next week, June 03 – 06. A home race for Marc Marquez, the Repsol Honda Team will continue to give their utmost to deliver what both riders need for success.

Marc Márquez, NC: “It has been a very hard weekend for MotoGP, we have lost a young talent, a young rider inside the paddock. This situation is very hard for everyone, and we wish everyone close to Jason all the best. Unfortunately we finished the race much earlier than we were expecting and it was really not a good situation because I need laps on the bike. I had contact with Brad Binder, it was a racing incident, and this happens many times here at this track. I thought that Binder was further back and in the change of direction, we touched, it as my mistake. Luckily no one else fell. Now we prepare for Catalunya after this difficult weekend for the MotoGP family.”
