MotoGP Round 18 Results & Round 19 TV Times

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'.

 

With the 2019 MotoGP champion, Marc Marquez starting from 11th on the grid, Fabio Quartararo racking up his fifth pole position of the season and Valentino Rossi putting in some scorching practice times, the Sepang GP could have been anyone's race right from the off. It was Yamaha's Maverick Vinales that took the lead and settled into the kind of pace that we haven't seen since the start of his rookie year at Yamaha. Despite the best attempts of Marquez in second, and Dovizioso in third, Vinales held on to the lead to score his second win this season. Britain's Cal Crutchlow failed to finish the race.

In Moto2, it was the younger Marquez brother's turn to step into the spotlight, securing the championship, despite the race win going to South African Brad Binder. With Tom Luthi following close behind in third, the fight for second and third in the championship will go to the final race. Britain's Jake Dixon finished in seventeenth place while Sam Lowes failed to finish.

In Moto3, 2019 Champion Lorenzo Dalla Porta reaffirmed his position by securing his third straight win of the season, his fourth in total, ahead of rookie Sergio Garcia (who secured his first podium) and Jaume Masia. Britain's John McPhee finished in seventh place to cement his position in the championship table.
