As expected at the Austrian
Grand Prix Red Bull Ring, a track that suits the ‘Desmosedici’ like no

the front runners included Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and his teammate
Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP).
Early retirements saw Pol

damaged in an incident and Jonas Folger of Monster Yamaha Tech 3 also exiting. Later as the race progressed, it was a battle between
Lorenzo, Marquez and Dovizioso as the three machines were almost neck-and-neck.

Marquez and Dovizioso began to pull away as the two men fought it out until the

Marquez rode spectacularly but his Italian rival cut back inside to cross the

After the NeroGiardini
Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich, Marquez remains ahead on the road to
Silverstone, but it's now Dovizioso hot on his tail - 16 points adrift.
