MotoGP: Marquez wins rainy Misano clash

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) won the Tribul Mastercard GP S. Marino e Riviera di Rimini (Round 13 of the 2017 MotoGPTM World Championship) which was marked by wet weather. Danilo Petrucci (Octo Pramac Racing) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) were second and third respectively.

Extremely wet conditions led all 23 riders to choose soft-compound MICHELIN Power Rain tyres for the start which saw Jorge Lorenzo leap into the lead from fifth on the grid, chased by Marquez and Dovizioso. The Ducati rider held on until a mistake six laps into the race.

Top spot was inherited by Petrucci who had moved up to second. He held firm but was ultimately passed by Marquez last time round when the defending champ posted the day’s fastest race lap to clinch his fourth win of the season.

Dovizioso’s cautious run was rewarded with third place and his first podium finish at Misano.  

Pole-sitter Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) failed to challenge for the win and had to settle for fourth, ahead of Ducati test rider and wild-card entry Michele Pirro (Ducati Team).

Jack Miller (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) was sixth, chased by Scott Redding (Octo Pramac Racing).

Alex Rins (8th, Team Suzuki Ecstar) claimed his best MotoGP result to date, with Jonas Folger (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) and Bradley Smith (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) finishing ninth and tenth. Johann Zarco (15th, Monster Yamaha Tech 3) pocketed a point despite running out of fuel just short of the chequered flag.

Marquez and Dovizioso (199 points) are now equal top in the provisional Riders’ standings. Viñales (187) is third and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) is still fourth despite not racing this weekend.

Next round: Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón, Spain (September 22-24).
