Marc Marquez repeats the Sachsenring seal: the Spaniard on the Honda HRC also conquers his second “friendly” track on the calendar, taking a nice victory in Austin. Despite a physical form that Marquez himself defines as still far from perfect, the eight-time world champion leaves nothing to his opponents.
Behind him Fabio Quartararo closes the race: the Yamaha Frenchman is increasingly the world leader, and even on a difficult track like Austin he earns points in the championship standings, since his most accredited rival for the title race – Francesco Bagnaia – ends on the third step of the podium after having obtained a good pole position on Saturday.
Situation like a red pencil in Moto3: the race, shortened to just five laps following a red flag resulting from a Salac accident, was the scene of a terrifying accident from which – among others – Acosta and Migno came out without consequences. The cause was Oncu, suspended for the next two races on the calendar.
