Marc Marquez of Repsol Honda
Team finally got into the victory mode in the third race of the 2017 MotoGP
held in Austin, Texas in the United States. The defending World Champion sped
to an important and much-needed first win of the season at the Red Bull Grand
Prix of the Americas after prevailing over teammate Dani Pedrosa, who
eventually ended up in third after being overtaken at the death by new World
Championship leader Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP).
Three-time World Champion,
Marquez, hadn’t been on the podium coming into the third race of 2017 having
seen in-form Maverick Viñales dominate the opening two races. But going for the
hat-trick, Viñales lost control and crashed out with 19 laps to go leaving the
battle to commence between the two Repsol Honda riders.
Marquez had started the race
on pole only to see Pedrosa come flying up from fourth to take the lead at the
end of lap one. It was neck and neck between them for much of the pulsating
race, with the duo making moves and overtaking each other at every opportunity.
Marquez eventually managed to get out in front though with 13 laps to go and
built up a healthy lead which he never came close to relinquishing.
Fourth place was the fight for
the First Independent Rider position as Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) and Johann
Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) both chased the spoils, with Crutchlow eventually
getting the better of the rookie as the race concluded. Sixth position went to
Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), with Andrea Iannone (Team SUZUKI ECSTAR) in
seventh. Danilo Petrucci (OCTO Pramac Ducati) took eighth, with Jorge Lorenzo
(Ducati Team) and Jack Miller (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) rounding out the top-ten with
ninth and tenth respectively.
