Marc Márquez continues to increase his chances of lifting the MotoGP title with races to spare, after the Spaniard took a hard-fought victory at the Aragón Grand Prix ahead of Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone.
After an early crash for Jorge Lorenzo at Turn 1, Marquez and Dovizioso took control of the race. However, after several overtakings moves between them, both Iannone and his teammate Álex Rins hunted the pair down. In the end, Márquez claimed his first win since July’s German GP.
Alvaro Bautista’s race finished prematurely on the second lap, after he lost the front end of his bike at Turn 14. The Spanish rider had great expectations for a race that he started from eighth, but which ended with his seven-race Top 10 streak coming to a close.
Álvaro Bautista (DNF):
“It’s a shame that, with the high expectations we had for this race, I lost the front end and crashed on the second lap. These are things that can happen in racing, but I feel sorry for the team because we did not deserve this result. We will continue working as we have always done, and try to improve weekend after weekend.”
