Márquez extends series lead with second at Mugello

The reigning MotoGP World Champion finishes in second place in an exciting Italian GP, decided on the last lap.

The Italian Grand Prix had four riders in contention for victory on the final lap.

Marc Márquez was third on the penultimate lap and passed the two Ducati riders on the straight, but was unable to hold his line at Turn 1 and was overtaken by Danilo Petrucci.

Marc Márquez 2th: “Today was time to defend, and we did it in the best way we could because usually this is not one of our best circuits. I stayed calm and waited to try something in the last lap. I was able to try but I missed the apex on the first corner and then both overtook me. Petrucci rode very well at the front today, congratulations to him. My goal was to finish in front of Dovizioso and Rins and we did this so I’m happy. Also congratulations to my brother Álex, he had a great race today too. As always, thanks to the Repsol Honda Team as they have worked hard to allow us to fight for victory here.”
