MotoGP – Italian GP – Race
The madness of the Italian Grand Prix is now over and the teams are heading to the next race in Spain in one week. Ducati won at his home race with Andrea Dovizioso on a race that had everything to bring the best show in MotoGP.
Maverick Viñales started on pole position but Valentino Rossi started as a missile at Mugello, taking the first position after the first turn. Jorge Lorenzo, who started 7th, could jump into the 3rd position. Talking about “jump”, Aleix Espargaró made a jump start and received a ride through penalty for that.
Lorenzo had a great pace at the start of the race and overtook Rossi and Viñales, taking the lead at Mugello, but the spaniard couldn’t stay on that position for too long, because Valentino Rossi overtook him on the turns, but the spaniard overtake him thanks to the top speed of his Ducati, but in one of those overtakes, Viñales also overtook Lorenzo, who started to lose time with the rivals, going down.
In front the battle for the victory was now between Viñales and Rossi, but this time, it was Dovizioso the one who wanted to join the party, overtaking Rossi and going directly to Viñales. Petrucci also wanted to be part of this, and caught Rossi without probelms and overtook him, being on podium, but he wanted more. Dovizioso overtook Viñales and was not leader of the race and Petrucci tried to make the same with the spaniard, but the number 25 didn’t want to lose more positions.
On the last lap Pedrosa, who had a bad race, tried to overtake Crutchlow, but he crashed and took with him the LCR Honda of Crutchlow, who couldn’t finish the race too.
Andrea Dovizioso won the Italian GP with Maverick Viñales 2nd and Danilo Petrucci 3rd. The top 10 was completed with Rossi, Bautista, Marquez, Zarco, Lorenzo, Pirro and Iannone.
The next round of the MotoGP championship will be in Spain again, but this time the race will be at the Circuit de Barcelona for the Catalan GP. The Minis will be there bringing the best updates of the race.
