MotoGP – British GP – Race
Great entretaining race on British lands, as Riders had some track action, drama and a closed finish between spaniards.
Race turn green lights as a unfortunatr event happened on track, as Quartararo fell from his bike and took over Dovizioso in the first lap. with the last one having to leave the circuit by medical transport; fortunately he’s out of danger, but still is a doubt how much time he’ll be out of tracks. Marquez was leading on to the first laps of the race, followed by a storming Alex Rins and the Yamahas of Viñales and Rossi.
As were closing to half of the race, riders were having big battles ahead, as Rins was imposing great pressur and even overtaking switching positions with Marqurz, Rossi was also on his own battle with his teammate Viñales, with eventually sawing Viñales separades from his teammate and joining the front group. All three in a impressive pace and hard fight on track.
With the last laps to go, Rins was still looking very strong on a bike that is known to lose his pace after some time, even looking better than Márquez on his bike. The Suzuki riders separated from Viñales went for all on to the last laps, getting closer at marquez at every sector and make a move on him to gain the first place, hold it by only 0,013 seconds and get his second win of the season. Viñales closed the podium closely from this riders.

Strong performance for Rins, that demostrates that Suzuki can be competitive against the main contenders. Solid Result for the Yamahas that return to a deserved Top 4 at standings and Marquez after this race is getting a step closer for a 6th Championship. For Dovizioso there’s still doubts of his physicall state, looks like he’s having back issues and a contussion. But he’s out of danger. Hoping for a quick recovery. Next up, is Misano, to the San Marino GP on three weeks.
