Japanese GP: Marquez wins in Montegi!


The world champion does not discount and makes the Motegi race his own: tenth win of the season and fourth in a row. At the Honda the constructors title. In a victory already triumphant for Italy with the successes of Marini in Moto2 and Dalla Porta in Moto3, Dovizioso third with Ducati for the hundredth podium of his career in all classes. Second Quartararo, who wins the Rookie of the year. Quarto Vinales, sixth Morbidelli who had started from the front row. Fall for Rossi at 4 laps from the end.

Honda won the Constructors’ Championship on the home track. A show of strength of the Japanese house but above all of Marc Marquez that in fact this title has conquered him alone. The Japanese leaders had asked him before the race and he responded with a super performance supported by the ability to manage the electronic maps that controlled fuel consumption. Like on the highway when you turn on the reserve and you’re holding your breath and your fingers crossed until the first motorway stop.
In this case the alert on his display turned on at two laps from the checkered flag, when Marquez had enough margin on second Quartararo. The performance of the World Champion does not give credit to what Quartararo himself showed on the track, who won the rookie of the year title, which today seems and is an understatement.
Dovizioso is not happy about his third position, because he did his best in the final but on this stop and go track the performance of the bike had to be absolutely better. A step backwards that should not make him lose motivation, given the second place in the World Cup still in progress.
Vinales fourth is the mirror of an official Yamaha that is there, but that must do more. Even in the side of the Valentino box that never had the pace to stay in the noble areas and that ended with a fall. Mordidelli, sixth behind Crutchlow, did not pick up what he showed in qualifying, but gave very interesting signals. The Petronas duo is currently the best matched team within the Team. The circuit moves, just like us from Sky sport in Australia, but after Japan it is forbidden to make predictions.
