The craziest World Cup: now Morbidelli wins with Mir third

The Italian-Brazilian becomes the fifth winner of the year in six races and the fourth to open his winning record. Quartararo fiascos (two falls) and Maverick (6th).


Marc Márquez must be pulling his hair from home at every MotoGP race that passes. Without him on the asphalt, having been out due to injury since the second round, it seems that neither would want to win the title and, which is certain, we are facing the craziest World Cup in the history of the category. And it is that in the San Marino GP it has been won by Franco Morbidelli, with the Yamaha satellite, becoming the fifth winner in six races and the fourth driver to debut his record of victories, which has not been seen since the championship took place. to walk in 1949. And what seems that nobody wants to win this year is due to the continuous lost opportunities of those who march in the first positions of the championship ... 444 444

If there were two clear favorites to victory at the Marco Simoncelli in Misano, from what was seen in practice, they were Maverick and Quartararo. Well, Viñales changed his pole for a disappointing sixth place and Fabio crashed in fourth, at turn 4 of the eighth lap. The leader of the general classification up to now resumed his march and, after a step through the pit lane, he hit the ground again, this time at turn 6. And that huge blunder did not take advantage of it as it should, a Dovizioso who was finally seventh thanks to Nakagami's sanction with a loss of position, for stepping on the green. That made him add nine points with which he now leads with three advantage over Quartararo, but the Italian knows better than anyone that it was the day to have added more, especially seeing that Bagnaia, his factory colleague, was able to finish second in his reappearance after suffering a broken leg.

The fight for victory had no emotion, because Morbidelli was in charge of leading from start to finish, but there was one for the other two podium places. Bagnaia rallied from eighth to second and Mir from seventh to third. The Suzuki one saved the furniture for the Spanish motorcycling in extremis, as his was the only podium of ours all day. The Mallorcan worked hard and it was a pity that he had to open midway through the race to avoid hitting Maverick, because without that he could have finished second.

The 2017 Moto3 champion beat Rins to place fourth before the final lap started. Álex came out more open from the account of the last turn and lost something in the acceleration that his partner took advantage of. From there, Mir threw himself at Rossi with the knife between his teeth and made him an anthological right-wing interior, without intimidating him that he was doing it to a living legend who had made more than enough merits to climb the drawer.

Rossi, at 41, fought until the last corner of the last lap for his 200th podium in the World Championship, so it is easy to understand that he is not ready to retire yet. The Doctor continues to enjoy racing and makes his fans enjoy them, far beyond his ingenious ideas with helmet designs like the one he has worn in Misano, inspired by blue viagra pills to give him extra power. They gave it to him, but not enough to get back on the podium. He had to settle for fourth, ahead of Rins, and Maverick, Dovizioso, Nakagami and Pol finished behind them to close the top ten. Further back were Oliveira 11th (won in Austria 2), Binder 12th (won in Brno), Aleix 13th, Lecuona 14th, Álex Márquez 17th and Rabat fell.
