The Repsol Honda Team turned its on-track success into success in the virtual world when Alex Marquez took a stunning first win in 2020 and Marc Marquez finished in a respectable fifth place.
Six laps on the Mugello racetrack ensured exciting action at the first #StayAtHomeGP. The drivers attacked from the moment the lights went out. With a more compressed event format than a typical GP, drivers had little time to fine-tune their settings.
Alex Marquez stayed calm, sticking to his pre-race plan and showing an excellent performance to make history and bring victory aboard the Repsol Honda Team RC213V on its esports debut. A massive seven-second lead shaped his authority on the field.
Marc Marquez drove a strong and consistent drive to secure fifth place in his first esports race, demonstrating impressive driving skills in both the real and virtual world. After a strong start, Marc was on the podium when he tried to match his teammate’s pace on the first laps.
The result is that the Repsol Honda Team is the first official MotoGP team to win the race in both the real and virtual world.
