Jorge Martin says that he is “disappointed that the championship is decided by a bad tyre” after struggling to tenth
Despite winning the Saturday sprint encounter, the Pramac Ducati rider’s chances of a double victory at the Lusail International Circuit were dashed by a poor start in the full-length race on Sunday. He dropped from fifth to ninth and struggled with rear grip, finishing tenth. He expressed disappointment that a bad tire decided the championship and felt he deserved to win. With a 21-point deficit, he hopes to win both races in Valencia and believes anything can happen there. Despite the frustration, he remains relaxed and determined to fight for the championship.
