Yes it did according to Motomaters:


"As he headed down the Hangar Straight towards Stowe, sitting behind Dovizioso and letting himself be towed towards Valentino Rossi, his engine let go. There was a puff of smoke, and Márquez immediately whipped in the clutch. "I did that immediately because I felt the rear locking and at 300 per hour I did not want to fly," Márquez quipped.

There had been no warnings that disaster was imminent. "The engine was perfect but suddenly when I arrived to the end of the straight the engine broke with some mechanical problem inside. Now we need to find what happened for the future because it was a fresh engine." It was an engine which Márquez had first used at Brno, two races earlier. It had not seen that much action: it had been used in ten practice sessions, including two sessions of Q2. It had been raced only once previously, having been used for 20 laps after the bike swap during the flag-to-flag race at Brno.

There were a couple of remarkable things about Márquez' failure. First of all, that it should happen at all during the race. Honda's engines – at least in MotoGP – have proven to be incredibly reliable, the last race blow up being 2007, the last practice blow up during qualifying in Austin in 2015. Secondly, that Márquez should be allowed to admit it was a mechanical problem. All too often, such failures are put down to electronics issues, or pipes working loose, or similar.

The flood waters must be going to your head. I'll narrow down the sentence and highlight it for you from Motomatters.

I guess he should have an "and" instead of a "," there, but ok. The whole article can be stricken from the record. This is Honda's first bobo ever.

Fastest lap of the race by half a second on last lap of the race... Getting his crashing done in practice. The bike no longer looking like a limit. Level on points in the championship. Is marquez back to his old ways?

Great ride by Petrucci. Nearly pulled that off. Great moto2/3 races as well if you haven't seen them.
