Dovizioso Wins The Gran Premio D'Italia

  • Dovizioso Wins The Gran Premio D'Italia

    The Gran Premio D’Italia Oakley MotoGP Championship at the Autodromo del Mugello, Italy was bagged by home lad, Andrea Dovizioso, the 31 year old Italian of the Ducati Team. Next on Podium was Maverick Vinales of the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team.

    During last week, we covered story about how Vinales won French GP.

    The race day turned out to be special for Ducati having both its riders on the podium today with the OCTO Parmac Racing’s Ducati rider, Danilo Petrucci to bag the third place.

    The race began with Maverick Viñales of Movistar Yamaha MotoGP starting from pole for the third time this year while Valentino Rossi, the other Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider, started from second place on the grid. Rossi, in his trademark style was quick to lead leaving behind Vinales followed by Lorenzo. Both the Repsol Honda riders were in a tussle with each other - Marc Marquez in the fourth position with Dani Pedrosa in the fifth.

    With a dramatic shift of places, Lorenzo sped across all riders and it was the first time that a Ducati was seen leading the rest! Rossi did not waste a minute to take back his place, though.

    While Marcquez fought and got his third position, Lorenzo once again took the lead from Rossi. Within moments, the cheering crowd could see Vinales moving strong and a battle ensued between him and Rossi for the first place, with long 20 laps to go!

    Dovizioso surprisingly took charge and sped ahead of Rossi with Vinales keeping lead. It was shocking to see Lorenzo slip back places, especially after watching him take the lead moments ago!


    With 10 laps to go, the lead was maintained by Dovizioso with Vinales right behind and Petrucci in third after his fantastic overtaking to put Rossi in the fourth place. And, he did not stop there! Just as smoothly he took over from Vinales and had a brief tussle with Dovizioso as well.

    With four laps to go, Vinales had a tough time taking back his place from Petrucci and the four maintained the pace right till the chequered flag with Dovizioso making a confident finish.

    Cal Crutchlow and Dani Pedrosa did have a crash towards the end of the race and it was quite sad to see them fall and argue later on!
