If MotoGP has probably experienced the most beautiful end-of-race weekend in Dovizioso and Marquez. The tactic of the Italian and the spuriousness of Spanish have blended into a mix of overtaking and controsorpassi, body-to-body combat, detachments and folds at the limit of physics and instantaneous accelerations of almost finished tires as they had not been seen for years . Both riders in the limits of sportsmanship have not spared and have exploited their personal skills and strengths to the fullest extent by mounting different tires (harder on Honda and soft on the Ducati); If Dovizioso could count on a better acceleration of his Ducati, Marquez responded in the bend entry as the brakes began to start as much as possible and drawing big black comma on the circuit of the Austrian circuit. The fight, which lasted almost halfway on, saw its natural end in the last detachment of the last curve at the last lap and a few hundred yards away from the checkered flag, where the Spaniard attempted to break through in a Where it was theoretically impossible. And in fact the entry went well but the decommissioned exit and the curb of its RCV213V prevented the optimum acceleration of the motorcycle by actually relegating the Spanish second place to a few cents from the Italian (deservedly) Grand Prix winner. Pedrosa third with a good comeback completed the podium. With the last third of the championship still to face, Marquez leads the overall standings with a 16 point advantage over Dovizioso and 24 on Vinales and all three can boast as many victories in the current season. In this context, the Grand Prix of Austria was strategically important since the Italian accused of a single retirement (Marc and Maverick are two-headed) while the Spanish enjoyed better placements; And with a "short" world ranking, any mistake could irreparably affect the title race from now on. "I would not have slept well if I had not tried to win at the last turn," Marquez said, "but it was not possible." Dovi had only a little more than us, but it was hard to surpass him. I really did everything and many times I lost the back. It was a great battle, and Dovi deserved this victory. We got second place and I'm very happy with the 20 points on this track where I had fought a lot last year. A good result for the championship, we are working well. Step by step, we found a good base that allowed us to be there and to be fast in every situation. It will be important to continue this and try to finish the podium in every race. " Pedrosa, who was quite happy with his race, said: "I'm very happy with how this weekend ended and finished on the podium, as we fought a lot in the free, passing through Q1 and closing eighth on the grid. It was faster than we expected.I still have some problems with the front and spinning at the rear, but our race strategy worked very well. At first I was not too aggressive, I took some time with The tank full, saving fuel and then step by step I increased my pace until I closed the gap from the first, also because Marc and Dovi were fighting disturbing each other.Unfortunately, when I reached them I accused a lot of spinning, The rear has overheated and I lost the grip. I wanted to stay with them and although I could not, I'm happy with the podium and proud of my team and the work we've done here " .
