Mugello MotoGP - Race and 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'.

 

Here’s what happened last time out… 

MotoGP

The grid lined up with Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez on pole, and Ducati Danilo Petrucci and Jack Miller (Pramac Racing) completing the front row. Ducati's number-one rider Andrea Dovizioso, Monster Energy Yamaha's Valentino Rossi and Petronas Yamaha SRT's Franco Morbidelli completed row two.

The action started early with Karel Abraham (Reale Avintia Racing Ducati) and Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) both hitting the deck during the warm-up lap after suffering complete loss of front-end grip. Both riders are still unclear what happened but had to start the race from pit lane as a result.

Once the race was underway, Marquez soon fell into his usual metronomic rhythm and by lap 13 had pulled a one-second lead on the chasing pack, comprising Miller, Dovi, Petrux and Rossi.

By the final lap, Marquez's lead was over three-seconds with the two Ducati Team riders, Dovi and Petrux, fighting over the remaining podium places - Dovi taking the spoils over his teammate by just half a second. Miller completed a Ducati 2, 3, 4 ahead of Rossi by just one-tenth of a second.

Other notable results include Red Bull KTM's Pol Espargaro in sixth (KTM's best dry result) and LCR Honda's Cal Crutchlow in ninth despite still recovering from winter injury.

Despite claiming to have found the right settings in practice, Repsol Honda's Jorge Lorenzo finished the race in eleventh, continuing his lack-lustre start to the season.

Fastest lap: 1'32.355 by Fabio Quartararo - Lap 20

 

MOTO2

In Moto 2, Alex Marquez (EG 0,0Marc VDS Kalex) took his fourth ever victory, from third on the grid, taking the lead on lap three and never looking troubled from then on. He took the chequered flag by over a second from Spain's Jorge Navarro (Lighttech Speed Up) and  Augusto Fernandez on the Flexbox HP40 Kalex.

Brits Jake Dixon (Sama Qatar Angel Nieto KTM) finished 17th while Sam Lowes (Federal Oil Gresini Kalex) failed to finish after a Lap 8 crash.

Fastest lap: 1'36.764 by Jorge Navarro - Lap 25

 

MOTO3

There was delight for British fans in Moto3 with Scotland's John McPhee (Petronas Sprinta Racing Honda) taking the win from pole. It was hard fought though as McPhee was down as far as ninth place by half race distance, but the Scot's grit and determination won through, taking the lead on the penultimate lap and the chequered flag by just one-tenth of a second from Leopard Racing's Lorenzo Dalla Porta in second, and Sterilgarda Max Racing KTM's Aron Canet in third.

Britain's other rider - Tom Booth-Amos finished in 17th.

Fastest lap: 1'42.196 by Jaume Masia - Lap 7
