Cormac Shoots Styria: Another Weekend Of Drama At The Red Bull Ring


Joan Mir felt he should have won the Styria Grand Prix. But he was foiled by a red flag


Turn 2 is tough, and Danilo Petrucci is the most spectacular of riders through there


Not bad looking for an old man


It's hard to capture just how steep Turn 1 is at the Red Bull Ring


Pole for Pol. Espargaro's pole position on Saturday lifted a major weight off his shoulders


6 days after a 300 km/h crash, 2 days after surgery to pin his scaphoid, and Johann Zarco was on the front row of the grid in Spielberg


Red, white, blue, and yellow


Race 1 belonged to Joan Mir. But race 1 didn't count


Thwarted


Yamaha vs Yamaha, but not for the positions that count


A 12-lap sprint race meant tight margins at the front


King of the Ring no longer - Andrea Dovizioso never found his magic at Spielberg


If you want to turn right, first point your wheel left. Jack Miller demonstrates proper technique


Last lap mayhem: The Red Bull Ring always delivers. Jack Miller stuffs it up the inside of Pol Espargaro for the lead ...


... that forces them both wide. Miguel Oliveira, meanwhile, has a perfect run on the inside line...


And is clear run to the line ...


... and into the history books, as Portugal's first ever premier class winner


Winning meant so much to the team. They have been close before, but here it was at last


It meant a lot to KTM too. Pit Beirer saw the end result of his project on the top step for the second time in three weeks


Losers? Pol Espargaro was devastated not to get the win, but still took his second KTM podium. Jack Miller came away with a second place with a painful shoulder. No losers here

The photos of the last lap mayhem reminds me of the smarts of Dovi last year, Márquez stuffed it up the inside like Miller on Pol this year but rather than sticking it out he delayed his throttle and cut back under Márquez at T10. Is Olivera the “new Dovi?”
