2017 Barcelona MotoGP Race Result: Seven Days Of Sun

old_url: 

With the audience probably wishing that the track was beachside, the over fifty degrees of the tarmac were always going to cause some sort of trouble. The best of the best at managing his tyres proved to be Andrea Dovizioso, the Italian taking an impressive victory to become the first Ducati rider since Casey Stoner in 2010 to take back-to-back wins for the Italian factory.

Marc Marquez pulled a rabbit out of the hat and managed to not exceed those sixty degrees of lean angle – which he had trouble with all weekend – to grab a vital second position and literally barrel-roll his way onto the podium. Teammate Dani Pedrosa looked like absolute favourite for the win but his tyres screamed ‘no more’ after leading most of the race and the Spaniard settled for the final podium position.

Poleman Pedrosa had a good start to his race but Jorge Lorenzo made a brave attempt to lead by the end of lap one, giving Marquez a chance to sneak ahead of his teammate. The Honda duo nursed their medium rear tyres as Lorenzo on the hard combination was pulling away at the front. The other factory Ducati played it safe early on in fourth place, Dovizioso on the same medium rear as the Hondas, as opposed to his leading teammate.

Marquez started pushing, tempted to catch up with Lorenzo, finding a way past on a wild bike moving and shaking, taking Pedrosa with him and Lorenzo losing another spot to his teammate in the bonanza. Jonas Folger and Danilo Petrucci didn’t take long to get past too as Lorenzo looked to be suffering already, running wide several times.

Pedrosa saw his chance and got past Marquez on lap eight, Dovizioso doing the same by the end of the same lap. The trio, joined by Folger, were pulling a bit of a gap to Petrucci as the pace settled at the front. Petrucci had survived a wild start after sweeping across the track and managing to hit Marquez quite roughly, both lucky to keep on board of their machines, the Italian coming off worse and losing positions out the top ten. He had recovered to fifth place but used up his hard tyres early and had difficulties trying to catch up with the lead group. His position looked secure until he crashed out on the final lap.

Dovizioso looked comfortable behind Pedrosa, getting very close on the main straight but not attempting an overtake until there were nine laps to go, when he easily took the lead and lapped almost a second faster than the Hondas the next time around. Marquez saw his chance and made it past his teammate, pushing hard to catch up with the Ducati. The mission proved challenging, Dovizioso matching each and every of his red sectors, as Pedrosa was dropping back after punishing his tyres at the start. Marquez appeared to settle for a podium and let the gap go over a second with four laps to go.

Alvaro Bautista was leading the charge behind Petrucci, with Johann Zarco and Lorenzo on his tail. The trio provided the entertainment in the final third of the race, lively disputing sixth place. In the final four laps, they came over a very slow Folger, Lorenzo finding his feet once again on the harder tyre to make it past the satellite Yamaha and stretch a significant advantage over his pursuers.  Lorenzo scored a hard-fought fourth place to make Gigi Dall’Igna’s smile even wider.

Johan Zarco got the better of his teammate on the final lap, picking up fifth place, Folger settling for sixth after running with the lead group early on, leaving Bautista seventh, almost three seconds down the road.

The Yamahas on the medium tyre combination had mixed starts, Valentino Rossi gaining from thirteenth grid spot to tenth by lap five, while Maverick Viñales went from ninth on the grid to fifteenth in the same timeframe. The duo were always going to suffer, Rossi finishing eighth, with Viñales tenth behind Hector Barbera and helped by crashes from Miller and Petrucci.

What was a bad day for Viñales was a good day for the championship battle, Dovizioso now only seven points behind the Spaniard, with Marquez cutting the gap to 23 and Pedrosa a further four points behind. Rossi is still in it, just one point behind Pedrosa, but will be craving some more wins after going a year without sitting on the top step of the podium.

2017 Barcelona Moto2 Race Result: Championship Hotting Up With Runaway Victory

old_url: 

What better celebration of the 250th start in the Moto2 class for the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS team than a dominating home grand prix win for Alex Marquez? It was a fantastic start for Marquez, the home rider already building a gap of one full second by the end of the first lap and two seconds by the end of lap two, setting the new circuit record in the process.

The Spaniard settled once the gap got to four seconds by lap nine, managing his pace after a bit of a wobbly warning. His second win of the season never looked in doubt barring any tyre trouble.

Franco Morbidelli might have looked subdued in practice but he was straight into second position a few turns into the race and battling his pal Mattia Pasini while his teammate was checking out at the front. Pasini sorted that one out soon after and never let go of the second position.

Thomas Luthi made a mistake on the first lap, running wide and losing significant positions but caught up soon after to battle Miguel Oliveira for fourth. Luthi had made it past the Portuguese rider and just as he was going for a move on Morbidelli, the Italian almost lost the front, saving it at the last moment but losing another place to Oliveira.

Luthi was soon dropping Oliveira too, stuck with a second’s gap to Pasini in front, the Italian having the advantage of the harder rear tyre of the two. The Swiss rider settled for a well-deserved final podium position and made it a repeat of the podium line-up from Mugello. Oliveira was left in a rather anonymous but solid fourth spot.

With fifteen laps to go, Morbidelli already looked like struggling in the heat once again and decided to settle for fifth. Front row starter Lorenzo Baldassarri had other plans, catching up with this compatriot with ten laps to go and snatching away the position. Oliveira proved to be a little too big of a challenge, but Baldassarri will be happy to have kept it upright for the entire length of the race and score a fifth place.

Much the same situation for Jorge Navarro behind him, the Spaniard getting past Takaaki Nakagami five laps in and looking like catching the championship leader in the final third of the race. It didn’t quite pan out that way but the Gresini rider still got good points in seventh position.

Behind them, Nakagami, Fabio Quartararo, Xavi Vierge, Marcel Schrotter and Simone Corsi were the protagonists of pretty much the only real battle we could enjoy throughout the race, Quartararo winning it in the end to get eighth place.

With Morbidelli only sixth, his pursuers in the championship got quite a bit closer, Luthi now only seven points behind, with Marquez twenty down on his teammate.

2017 Barcelona Moto3 Race Result: The Last Lap Is All That Matters

old_url: 

With the first few umbrellas opening to fend off the sun, the lightweight class took to the track to show us the true meaning of chaos for yet another weekend. Although the lead was exchanged at every slipstreaming opportunity, à la Moto3, it’s somehow always the same names ending up on top.

Just as the Estrella Galicia Marc VDS team was announcing Joan Mir as their Moto2 rider for next season, the championship leader was running a tactical race that snatched him victory in the final few turns of the race.

Romano Fenati fought all the way throughout the race but couldn’t find an answer to Mir’s last lap antics and had to settle for second position, while pole sitter Jorge Martin missed yet another opportunity to convert a pole start into a win. Despite leading on the final lap, the Spaniard took the last podium position available.

The race started poorly for Martin, a terrible start dropping him back significantly as Juanfran Guevara grabbed the lead before Fenati resumed his usual tactics and took over halfway through the first lap. Despite the grid penalty dropping him to the second row of the grid, Aron Canet found his way to third on the first lap and led by lap three. Martin slowly picked up places to get back in the limelight and go top on lap four.

This was just the main contenders introducing themselves on stage as an elite group including Martin, Fenati, Canet, Fabio Di Giannantonio and Mir started to break away from the pursuers. Montmeló specialist Enea Bastianini worked hard in the first handful of laps to catch up with them, leaving the rest of the chasing group falling behind slightly. Marcos Ramirez didn’t give up the fight that easily, the Spaniard also catching up with the group and taking Tatsuki Suzuki with him.

Meanwhile, at the front, the lead changed hands more times that you could count – so the usual Moto3 slipstreaming affair – Jorge Martin the only rider able to hold his lead for more than one lap and avoid being slipstreamed on the straight. With the top eight tightly bunched up, it was difficult to pick a winner but Fenati went all out to make a break with five laps to go, the Italian posting a few personal best sectors to stretch a gap of half a second. Mir had none of that, quickly making up ground to finally snatch the lead two laps later.

The poleman slipstreamed his way into the lead soon after, Fenati, Mir and the Estrella Galicia duo breaking away to dispute the podium between themselves. Martin defended his position brilliantly until turn thirteen on the final lap, when Mir made up a move out of thin air and did not give up the lead until the line.

Bastianini got as close as one tenth of a second to continuing his record of finishing all races in Barcelona on the podium but could only finish fourth, ahead of his teammate, Aron Canet.

Leading the charge for KTM was, perhaps unsurprisingly, Marcos Ramirez, the Spaniard finishing sixth, ahead of Di Giannantonio, who faded in the final part of the race.

Behind the lead group, the Sky VR46 duo was leading the pursuers, almost three seconds behind halfway through the race, Andrea Migno and Nicolo Bulega managing to bring the gap down significantly but only made it past Suzuki to finish eighth and ninth – still a good result considering they started towards the bottom of the top twenty.

With this home win in his pocket, Mir extends his lead in the championship to almost two race wins’ worth of points, 45 ahead of Fenati, who climbs two spots in the rankings. Canet is only three points behind the Italian, with Di Giannantonio losing a further five. Migno and Martin are tied on points in fifth and sixth positions, both 57 points down on the leader.

2017 Barcelona Moto2 Qualifying Result: Making A Statement From The Start

As if he was fearing that the tarmac might melt any second now, Alex Marquez went out the pits and posted the first and what proved to be one of only two laps into the 1:49s in the qualifying session. His rivals had to postpone their pool time while trying to catch up on a gap of over half a second. The mission was eventually unsuccessful, the Spaniard’s early time proving unbeatable, not even by Marquez himself, the Marc VDS rider taking a brilliant pole position in his backyard.

The only rider to get within half a second of Marquez was, once again, Mattia Pasini, the Italian continuing to show great form with a second place on the grid. The next challenger was an unlikely one but more along the lines of the expectations we had this season from Lorenzo Baldassarri, the Italian getting as close as six tenths of a second of Marquez and completing the front row.

Takaaki Nakagami came out of nowhere to snatch a second row start, while Thomas Luthi looked on course to challenge for the front row but was hindered by traffic on his final lap and had to settle for fifth place. With the momentum on the other side of the garage, Franco Morbidelli had his worst qualifying of the season, in sixth position, which isn’t too shabby really.

Miguel Oliveira will open the third row, accompanied by Jorge Navarro, who is quickly becoming a usual sight in the top ten, Axel Pons the next rider to complete the row three line-up.

Meanwhile, Pecco Bagnaia has a bit of a recovery job in his schedule for Sunday, the Italian only qualifying twentieth, one place ahead of Moto3 champ Brad Binder.

While his teammate scored a front row start, Luca Marini has been withdrawn from the race due to shoulder injury recovery following the crash he had in the morning session.
