Andrea Dovizioso claims back-to-back MotoGP wins for Ducati with victory in the Catalunya Grand Prix!

Repsol Honda team-mates Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa joined the Italian on the podium in sweltering conditions.

Tenth for Yamaha's world championship leader Maverick Vinales means he is now just seven points ahead of Dovizioso.

The start saw a scary incident between Danilo Petrucci and Marquez, which was being investigated by Race Direction. Petrucci fell from fifth in the closing stages.


Bradley Smith missed the race due to a finger injury on Saturday, while Sylvain Guintoli was again replacing injured rookie Alex Rins at Suzuki.

    Brilliant win for Dovi.

    That last lap when he was cruising to the finish was beautiful.

    So, in trying to make a bike for Jorge, Ducati have solved the problems that Dovi and Petrucci were having with that bike. Talk about irony, even Poetic Justice !!

    Marc : only he can do this, crash 5 times in Free Practice + Qualification, and make second ! No other rider in MotoGP would crash 5 times, 5 times, and still have the confidence to ride for a strong second. My hat to him !

    Agreed. It's all inconsistent. However. I'm a little tired of people expecting Lorenzo to be championship leader instantly. He never made crazy claims... He does what he usually does. Gets his head down and works hard at it.
    As I said in another post people want him to fail and that's pathetic.
    Blasting him for being behind Bautista last round yet when Rossi is beaten by both Tech 3 bikes on an older bike there's a legitimate excuse.... its pathetic ad biased.

    Bottom line is Dovi is spearheading the Italian charge now because Valentino still hasn't won a race.
    I wanted Rossi to win his 10th this season but his biased childish fans make me want Dovi to keep flying that Italian flag on the Ducati!
