Marquez Wins Gran Premio de Aragón MotoGP 2016


Marc Marquez‭ (‬Repsol Honda Team‭) ‬has taken a stunning win at MotorLand Aragon to extend his championship lead ahead of the flyways‭, ‬with Movistar Yamaha MotoGP duo Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi dueling it out to complete the podium‭. ‬After re-taking his‭ ‬teammate and defending P2‭, ‬the Mallorcan held off Rossi before the Italian ran wide‭, ‬forced to settle for P3‭ ‬in an expensive day in the title fight‭.‬

 

After a scuffle off the line through Turns 1‭ ‬and 2‭ ‬at a dry but cool MotorLand Aragon‭, ‬it was Team Suzuki Ecstar rider Maverick‭ ‬Viñales who emerged from the melee to turn his front row start into the early lead in the race‭. ‬With the front group close all the way down to P8‭, ‬Marquez soon struck to take the lead‭, ‬before a wobble through Turn 7‭ ‬saw the championship leader drop back into the group slightly‭, ‬down to P5‭. ‬Lorenzo was the man on the chase behind new leader Viñales‭, ‬with teammate Valentino Rossi in‭ ‬very close company‭.‬

 

 

The lead began to stretch for the Silverstone winner‭, ‬before it was Rossi tagged onto the back of the Suzuki rider and looking for a way past‭, ‬finally making a clever but aggressive move to take the lead with 15‭ ‬to go and sit the younger Spaniard up‭. ‬Viñales‭, ‬pushing to find a way back through‭, ‬then ran wide at Turn 1‭ ‬and let Marquez through to hunt down his championship rival‭. ‬With Lorenzo then on the scene‭, ‬the front group divided into two duels‭.‬

 

Once with rider from Tavullia‭, ‬former apprentice Marquez moved quickly to overtake the master‭, ‬through on the inside on the‭ '‬Aragon Corkscrew‭' ‬and making it stick‭. ‬The championship leader then had the pressure of 9‭ ‬world titles close behind and trying to hang on‭, ‬but Marquez kept his head down and the pace up to slowly begin to get the better of the Italian and create a gap‭. ‬The pace shown by the 2013‭ ‬and 2014‭ ‬MotoGP™‭ ‬World Champion throughout the weekend on home turf proved to have survived the trip to Sunday‭, ‬as the number 93‭ ‬bike started to‭ ‬get smaller and smaller in front of the 46‭ ‬plated Yamaha‭ - ‬with Rossi then forced to start looking over his shoulder instead as‭ ‬Lorenzo and Viñales threatened‭.‬
