MotoGP: Marquez seals 2017 title as Pedrosa earns Valencia win

The 18th and final round of the 2017 MotoGPTM World Championship – the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana (30 laps) – was won by Dani Pedrosa. Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech3) and the new world champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) were second and third.

 

Pole-winner Marquez – who chose hard- and soft-compound MICHELIN Power Slicks front and rear – set the pace for the first three laps before being passed by Zarco (soft/soft) who was second in qualifying.

The French youngster, who had already clinched the 2017 Rookie of the Year and Best Independent Rider crowns, valiantly defended top spot. However, despite posting the fastest race lap fourth time round (1m31.576s), he failed to pull clear of his chasers.

Meanwhile, Pedrosa (hard/medium tyres) took advantage of a mistake by Marquez on Lap 24 to ease into second place, while the reigning champion slipped back to fifth.

On the ultimate lap, Pedrosa deprived Zarco of his first MotoGP success to notch up his second victory of the season. The Frenchman ended up second.

Marquez inherited third place when factory Ducati riders Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso fell from fourth and fifth positions respectively.

Álex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) rounded out the day’s top five, ahead of Andrea Iannone (Team Suzuki Ecstar), Jack Miller (EG 0,0 Marc VDS), Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda), Michele Pirro (Ducati Team) and Tito Rabat (EG 0,0 Marc VDS).

The result put the seal on 24-year old Marquez’s sixth world title, his fourth at MotoGP level. Dovizioso and Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) concluded the season with the year’s silver and bronze medals respectively.

The riders will stay in Valence on Tuesday and Wednesday for the first official pre-2018 test.
