The second stage of the championship was held on the track Termas de Rio Ondo. The Honda Repsol driver was leading from start to finish, while his rivals behind them changed places.

Marquez started from pole position and immediately pulled away from other participants who could not get close to him throughout the race. In an interview with reporters, he said that at first he tried to squeeze everything out of the bike, until he managed to get away enough. Then he just kept the distance advantage, enjoying the race.

Following the Spaniard, Valentino Rossi (Yamaha) and Andrea Dovitsioso (Ducati) took up the second and third positions. Moreover, Rossi, who was third, literally at the end, walked around Dovhicioso twice. The first time after overtaking, he made a mistake and again rolled back to third place, but then he still regained the second.

It is worth noting that over the past eleven races this is the first podium of Rossi. Jorge Lorenzo, who won the World Championship three times, finished only 11th. And then he managed to climb at the expense of accidents Maverick Vinales and Franco Morbidelli.

 Dovitsiozo, who won in the first stage of the season-2019, in the final table is located on the second line. “The podium is, of course, great, but I’m not very pleased,” he told a press conference. “Rubber wore out quickly and didn’t allow me to stay closer to Marquez. It was a shame that Rossi overtook me when I was in second place, and I could not regain the position. But still good that the podium. ”
