Repsol Honda racer Mark Marquez defeated Misano in a protracted duel by beating Petio’s Yamaha representative Fabio Cuartararo.

At the start, Quartararo came in second place, soon the holder of the pole, Maverica Vinales, passed and was in the lead from the third to the penultimate circle. Marquez burst out no less quickly from fifth place and hung the entire race on the tail of the Frenchman, and the circle to the checkered flag due to the Honda motor went ahead on the starting line.

Cuartararo was able to regain leadership in the second sector, but again lost on the reverse line – this time Marquez literally parked his motorcycle at the apex of the eighth turn and did not allow Fabio to take a good acceleration. The Frenchman again tried to climb along the internal trajectory of the 13th bend, but buried himself in Marquez and covered the gas handle, recognizing defeat. After the finish, the young Frenchman could not restrain his tears.

Marquez won by a margin of 0.903 seconds and brought the lead in the championship to 93 points. The third race was finished by Maverick Vinales, who again, as in Great Britain, watched the leaders’ struggle at a certain distance. Valentino Rossi finished fourth for the third time in a row and competed with the second Yamaha satellite Franco Morbidelli, but lost to Marquez for more than 12 seconds.

Andrea Dovitiosio on the sixth line became the best representative of Ducati – not the worst result for the Italian brand on not the most suitable track. KTM racer Paul Espargaro, who showed a second time in qualifying the day before, finished seventh. Joan Mir, Jack Miller and Danilo Petrucci closed the top 10, Jorge Lorenzo finished 14th, and the winner of the British Grand Prix Alex Rins fell in the middle of the distance.

The fourteenth phase of the MotoGP season will be held in Aragon on September 22.
