MotoGP Round 17 Results & Round 18 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'.

 

There are times when the final race classification doesn't reflect the true nature of the race, and this year's Australian MotoGP is a prime example of this. Marquez's winning margin makes it look as if the race were a whitewash – how far from the truth!

With the lead shared between Rossi (three laps), Crutchlow (six laps) and Viñales (16 laps), Marquez only led for the penultimate and, crucially,  the final lap. Even Aprilia's Andrea Iannone had a go at the front!

The Moto2 championship remains a three-way race between table leader Alex Marquez, an on-form Brad Binder and ex-MotoGP rider Tom Luthi after Marquez finished the race down in eighth place, conceding a heap points to race winner Binder and third-place man Luthi.

The Moto3 crown, however, was finalised in style with series leader Lorenzo Dalla Porta snatching the win from teammate Marcos Ramirez and Albert Arenas. Dalla Porta's win – his third of the season – puts him 72 points clear at the top and gives Leopard Racing their third world Moto3 championship (Danny Kent in 2015, Joan Mir in 2017 being the others).

In case you missed the coverage, here are your top five finishers in each of the classes:
