MotoGP | Bagnaia wins Spanish GP in an electrifying dispute with Marquez; Martin crashes


Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team), won the Spanish GP held at the Jerez track, for the MotoGP championship, in an electrifying dispute with Marc Marquez (Gresini Racing) until the last lap. Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) crashed while leading the race, after enormous pressure from the Italian.

The race was very hectic from the start, with Bagnaia starting from seventh position and, in a masterful maneuver on the first lap, took second place in the race.

Marquez, who started from pole position, dropped back to third and later fourth when he was overtaken by Marco Bezzecchi (Pertamina VR46 Racing Team).

After Martin’s crash, he took third place and, with a very good race pace, managed to overtake Bezzecchi and go after Bagnaia. In the final part of the race, he managed to catch up to the Italian, overtaking him, but, in the next corner, he was overtaken back, in a very aggressive maneuver by the Italian rider.

Riding hard, Bagnaia managed to hold off the Spaniard in the last meters of the last lap and cross the finish line for another victory, which gave him second place in the championship.

It was a great result for him, as he had been suffering from a slightly lower than expected performance in previous races. In this one, he showed why he has the number 1 on his bike.

Bezzecchi completed the podium, with Alex Marquez (Gresini Racing) finishing fourth, Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo Team) fifth, and Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) sixth.

MotoGP returns on May 18th, with the French GP, at the Le Mans circuit.
