MotoGP - Round 6 Summary and Round 7 TV Schedule

Lamb-Stephen
By Steve Lamb

Production Manager - Still considers himself a novice rider, despite passing his test over twenty years ago. Steve has only ever owned four bikes - a '95 Suzuki GSX600F (which he dropped in the first minute of ownership), an '04 Yamaha FZ6 Fazer and currently a '16 Ducati Scrambler Classic, as well as (very slowly) building a '94 Yamaha SR125 'brat tracker'.

Moto GP

It was a race of lows and highs last time out at Mugello.

An rare crash on lap 16 brought Yamaha's Valentino Rossi's race to an early end and concluded a disappointing weekend for the nine-times world champion.

The Mugello crowd had plenty to cheer though as at the front of the field, Ducati's Danilo Petrucci and Andrea Dovisiozo were fighting Honda's Marc Marquez for the lead. Each rider took their turn leading the race, as did Suzuki's Alex Rins for one lap, but as the race progressed it was Petrucci that looked strongest - perhaps the rumour-mill around his place at Ducati in 2020 was having an effect.

Despite Dovi taking the lead on the penultimate lap, it was Petrucci that took the chequered flag to give him his first MotoGP win from 124 starts.

Petrucci was joined on the podium by Honda's Marc Marquez in second after Marquez pipped Dovisiozo to the line by a mere three-tenths of second.

Britain's Cal Crutchlow finished in eighth.

Fastest Lap: 1'47.657 - Jack Miller - Lap15

 

Moto 2

Alex Marquez (EG 0,0 Marc VDS Kalex) took the lead on lap nine and the win in the Moto2 race giving him back-to-back wins, after his success in France.

Hot in Marquez's heels, SKY Racing Team VR46's Luca Marini took second, ahead of Swiss rider Tom Luthi (Dynavolt Inact GP).

Brit Sam Lowes finished the race in ninth place, while 2018 Bennetts BSB runner-up Jake Dixon failed to finish after a lap 11 spill.

 

Fastest Lap: 1'51.881 - Alex Marquez - Lap 2

 

Moto 3

Assuming you are relaxed, your heart is beating at around 60 beats per minute, or once per second. In the half the time it takes for your heart to beat a single beat, the top EIGHT Moto3 riders had crossed the finishing line, after nearly forty minutes of racing.

Fractionally first over the line was VNE Snipers Honda rider Tony Arbolino, completing a fantastic weekend after qualifying in pole. Just 29-thousands of a second behind Arbolino, Lorenzo Dalla Porta (Leopard Racing Honda) took his third podium of the season, ahead of Jaume Masia (Bester Capital Dubai KTM)

Scot John McPhee took sixth place, just four-tenths behind the winner, while Tom Booth-Amos had a disappointing outing, ending his race after a lap 11 crash.

 

Fastest Lap: 1'56.713 - Niccolò Antonelli - Lap 5
