Six laps around the Mugello circuit produced thrilling action for the first #StayAtHomeGP, riders attacking from the moment the lights went out. With a more condensed event format than a typical GP, riders had little time to refine their setting.
Keeping calm, Álex Márquez stuck to his pre-race plan and put in a sterling performance to make history and clinch the win aboard the Repsol Honda Team RC213V in his eSports debut.
Marc Márquez put in a strong and consistent ride to secure fifth place in his debut eSports race, demonstrating impressive riding skills in both the real and virtual worlds.
The result sees the Repsol Honda Team become the first official MotoGP team to win races in both the real and virtual worlds.
“I would have liked better than fifth, but the result isn’t too bad and as a team we did well.”
“It was a really funny event with all of the other riders and I am really pleased to win my first race.”
