Jorge Martin bounced back from arguably his toughest day of the season to claim a vital sprint win in the 2023 MotoGP title battle.
During Friday’s practice, Martin seemed completely lost and showed an unprecedented level of frustration for the season. However, he made an amazing comeback during the race, overtaking both Francesco Bagnaia and Fabio Di Giannantonio. Martin’s success can be attributed to finding the right tires and making use of the team’s experience with the track’s temperatures. Despite struggling initially due to a lack of grip, Martin knew that the challenging track conditions played a role in his difficulties. With this win, Martin is now only seven points behind Bagnaia in the championship standings with three races remaining. He is excited to watch the race again, especially considering his doubts about the start and his ability to make a strong start.
