MotoGP: Honda’s Aragon one-two

The Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón – Round 14 of the 2017 MotoGPTM World Championship – was won by Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team), ahead of team-mate Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team).

 

Running on hard-compound MICHELIN Power Slicks front and rear, Marquez got away to a cautious start and completed the first of the day’s 23 laps in fourth place, behind Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and his chief title rival Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team).

On Lap 6, he eased past the latter to take third, then attempted to grab the lead three laps later. His optimistic move failed, however, and he fell back to fourth again.

With 12 laps to go, he moved up to second and eventually found a way past Lorenzo before going on to take the win by a margin of just eight-tenths over Pedrosa who produced a superb run during the race’s later stages.

After topping the order for the first 15 laps, Lorenzo had to settle for third when Pedrosa followed up posting the fastest race lap on Lap 19 (1m49.140s) by stealing second spot three laps from home.

Pole-winner Maverick Viñales was fourth after passing team-mate Rossi with three laps remaining. The still-convalescing Italian was fifth.

Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini), Dovizioso, Alvaro Bautista (Pull&Bear Aspar Team), Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) and Pol Espargaro (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) rounded out the top 10.

In the provisional standings, Marquez (224 points) has gone clear top ahead of the upcoming long-haul trips to Japan, Australia and Malaysia. Dovizioso (208) and Viñales (196) are second and third, while Pedrosa (170) has jumped to fourth, marginally clear of Rossi (168 points). With four rounds still to contest, the end of the season is shaping up to be an absolute cracker!

Next round: Japanese Grand Prix, Motegi (October 13-15, 2017).
