MotoGP – San Marino GP – Race

Hello MiniFans!

MotoGP made history today with 8 different winners on this season. Dani Pedrosa won the San Marino GP ahead of the local hero who was leading the whole race. Wanna know what happened at San Marino? Keep reading!

Lorenzo started from pole position and kept the position after the start. Marquez was overtaken by Dovizioso but could recover the position at the second lap on an aggressive move from the spaniard. Also Rossi made an aggressive overtake to his teammate to reach the first position and leading the race at his home GP. Viñales who was at the podium was overtaken by Marquez but the Suzuki rider lost also the positions with Dovizioso and Pedrosa.

The number 26 of Repsol Honda started to show a great pace overtaking Dovizioso and making fastest laps in every lap overtaking a few laps later to Viñales. The spaniard was really fast and could fight with his teammate, overtaking him and reaching the podium, but this was not enough for him because he was chasing also Lorenzo, overtaking him in a couple of laps. The next rival was the local hero: Rossi.

Viñales was penalized with a position swap with Dovizioso for overtaking him with track limits, but after that he started a battle to him, overtaking the italian without problems. Someone who couldn’t say the same was his teammate, Aleix, who crashed when he was following his brother on the fight for the 9th position.

Pedrosa was really focused on the race and could overtake Valentino Rossi with still 6 laps for the end of the race, but the italian couldn’t follow the spaniard who took the victory at San Marino.


Dani Pedrosa was the 8th consecutive winner of the season and was at the podium with Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. The top 10 was completed by Marquez, Viñales, Dovizioso, Pirro, Pol Espargaró, Crutchlow (who was penalized with 1,5 seconds for track limits) and Bautista.

The next round will be at Aragon in a couple of weeks. Are we going to see the 9th winner of the season? We still don’t know, but what we’re sure is that we’re going to have fun. See you and remember… Be mini-good!
