MotoGP Mugello: Race Results

MotoGP Results

Dani Pedrosa rode a start-to-finish victory at Mugello on Sunday as he took his maiden win of the 2010 campaign at the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM.

The Spaniard, who had only converted three of his previous fourteen premier-class pole positions into wins prior to this race, never looked like relinquishing the lead he held from turn one of the opening lap as he crossed the finish line 4.014 seconds clear of the rest of the field.

The whole of MotoGP had been rocked on Saturday by the crash of Valentino Rossi, which left the World Champion in a Florence hospital recovering from an operation to his broken right shin. However the Mugello crowd responded, with over 76,000 fans packing the hillsides, many draped in yellow and offering support to their hero Rossi.

Sporting a t-shirt on the podium in the famous yellow colour of his stricken team-mate, World Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo was unable to take advantage of his rival’s absence. The Fiat Yamaha rider was forced to settle for second place having been unable to replicate his impressive practice pace, however he still extended his lead at the top of the standings.

Undoubtedly Lorenzo will be disappointed, unable to keep tabs on Repsol Honda’s Pedrosa, whose lead had stretched to 7.309s at the mid-point of the race. Behind Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso were more closely matched, and neither was able to close down the gap to the eventual winner.

Pedrosa’s win became more secure as the final laps counted down, and it was left to Lorenzo and Dovizioso to decide the remaining podium spots.

The Fiat Yamaha rider opened up a slender advantage that he did not surrender for the remainder of the race. An emotional Dovizioso could console himself with giving the home crowd a podium to cheer in Rossi’s absence.

Much further back positions four to six remained open as Marco Melandri, Randy de Puniet and Casey Stoner exchanged blows, with Ben Spies not out of the chase either. Stoner eventually pushed his struggling Ducati to the limit to claim fourth as he beat Melandri and de Puniet in a last-lap dash.

Spies finished seventh in his first race at the circuit, with another rookie impressing in the shape of Aleix Espargaró who took eighth. Simoncelli had recovered from an early mistake in time to take ninth, with Loris Capirossi tenth.

Lorenzo now has 90 points at the top of the Championship, with Pedrosa second on 65. The absent Rossi is third on 61 with his return date unknown, whilst Dovizioso’s podium takes him to 58 in fourth.

Moto2 Results

Andrea Iannone (Fimmco Speed Up) won the Moto2 race by a comfortable margin, delighting the home crowd as the battle for positions two to six provided a riveting contest. Sergio Gadea eventually took second place, drafting past Simone Corsi on the run to the line, for his first rostrum in 2010. Corsi just made it as the second Italian on the podium as he rose from 26th on the grid to take third place with an incredible ride.

Swiss rider Thomas Lüthi was just 15-thousandths further back in fourth, with Championship leader Toni Elías taking fifth. Shoya Tomizawa made a late break to steal second from in amongst the fiercely contested chasing group, but his error on the penultimate lap meant he was forced to settle for sixth. The top ten was completed by Gabor Talmacsi, Yuki Takahashi, Julián Simón and Alex Debón.

Elías remains at the top of the Championship standings with 74 points, with Tomizawa staying in second on 55 and Corsi in third on 51. Gadea sits fourth on 46, whilst Iannone’s win lifts him to fifth, level on 38 points with Lüthi.

125cc GP Results

Marc Márquez took his first World Championship win in a tight 125cc race that went all the way to the wire, leading an all-Spanish podium, which was completed by Nico Terol and Pol Espargaró.

A four-way battle for the lead came about after an early break by Terol and Espargaro, with Marquez joined by Briton Bradley Smith in the chase for the lead duo. After pole holder Sandro Cortese crashed on the opening lap, the front quartet broke away in a breathless fight as the lead changed hands regularly before the end of the race.

Into a thrilling 20th and final lap, Márquez led the pack and ultimately managed to hold his slender advantage to cross the line ahead of Terol and Espargaró with Smith cruelly missing the podium in fourth. Remarkably just 0.161 seconds separated the four.

Efrén Vázquez, Randy Krummenacher, Esteve Rabat and Tomoyoshi Koyama completed the top eight, with British rider Danny Webb placing tenth.

Terol remains at the top of the standings after the race with 85 points, six ahead of Espargaró and Márquez moves to third on 57.
