2014 San Marino GP: MotoGP Race Results - Remarkable Rossi Wins!


The home crowd went wild at Misano on Sunday as Valentino Rossi took his first victory since Assen last year, with Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa also on the podium, whilst Marc Marquez finished 15th after a crash.

Nine time World Champion Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) took the lead in the early laps after getting in front of pole man Lorenzo and then asserting his authority in an early battle with Marquez. On the 10th lap Marquez went down at Rio corner when in second place and whilst he restarted his RC213V he could not achieve more than a solitary point.

Rossi kept the hammer down at the front to eventually win by 1.578s and reach the milestone of 5000 Grand Prix points in style. It is the 107th victory of Rossi’s remarkable career.

Lorenzo rode with determination to take another podium result and finished in second place for the fourth successive race.

Coming from fifth on the grid, Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) took his ninth podium finish of the season in third place, crossing the line 1.234s ahead of the hard working Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team).

It was another good ride for Dovizioso in front of the home crowd as he got the Ducati across the finish line 5.5s behind winner Rossi. Likewise, Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) impressed in fifth place with another solid result.

Rookie Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3) rode well again to secure sixth place, 4.1s ahead of his teammate Bradley Smith.

Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini), Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) and Yonny Hernandez (Energy T.I. Pramac Racing) completed the top ten.

Mike Di Meglio (Avintia Racing) was an early crasher, as was Danilo Petrucci (Octo IodaRacing Team). Di Meglio suffered a displaced fracture of fourth and fifthth metacarpus of his left hand and will require surgery. Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) also fell out of the top ten. Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) crashed on the final lap. All the riders other than Di Meglio were uninjured.

Moto2: Unstoppable Rabat takes the glory after catching Kallio

Tito Rabat extended his Moto2™ World Championship advantage to 22 points with victory over second placed teammate Mika Kallio at the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, with Johann Zarco in third place.

Pole man Kallio made a fantastic start and built up a 1.5s lead by the second lap but Rabat kept his Marc VDS Racing Team colleague in his sights, the Spaniard biding his time and overtaking the Finn with eight laps to go.

Rabat has now taken seven wins in 2014, three of those triumphs in successive races - and he is in a strong position at the head of the standings with five races remaining. For Kallio this is his ninth podium of the year, meanwhile, with his strong run of six consecutive rostrum results keeping him still within touching distance of Rabat.

Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) rode a lonely race to third, two seconds adrift of Kallio at the line and just under two seconds ahead of fourth placed Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40).

The top ten was completed by Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2), Dominique Aegerter (Technomag carXpert), Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team), Julian Simon (Italtrans Racing Team), Axel Pons (AGR Team) and Takaaki Nakagami (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia).

Jonas Folger (AGR Team) was given a ride through penalty for failing to drop one position after exceeding track limits, finishing 19th after running in seventh position.

Miroslav Popov (Montaze Broz Racing Team) had an early off, but was able to rejoin until he suffered a second crash several laps later. Azlan Shah (Idemitsu Honda Team Asia) also crashed and rejoined for 32nd place. Ricky Cardus (Tech 3) and Riccardo Russo (Tasca Racing Moto2) both crashed and could not rejoin. Nico Terol (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2) was forced to retire with a technical problem on his return to racing.

Moto3: Brave Rins overcomes Marquez in Misano battle

Alex Rins took victory in the Moto3™ race at the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, with Alex Marquez and Jack Miller joining him on the podium.

Despite requiring a medical check after sustaining heavy contusions on both legs in a Warm Up crash, Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) produced an excellent ride to win for the second round in succession and strengthen his title credentials.

Standings leader Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) returned to the podium, but saw his championship lead reduced to nine points - to Marquez - with five races to go. The Australian crossed the line just over 3.4s behind race winner Rins. Miller’s advantage over third placed Rins in the table is now 20 points.

Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team) finished a second off the podium with Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) close by in fifth.

Brad Binder (Ambrogio Racing), Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold), Andrea Migno (Mahindra Racing), Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3) and Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) rounded out the top ten.

Matteo Ferrari (San Carlo Team Italia), Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo), Nilkas Ajo (Avant Techno Husqvarna Ajo), Gabriel Rodrigo RBA Racing Team) and Scott Deroue (RW Racing GP) all crashed out of the race. Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing) was up in third before a high side saw him crash and remount, finishing 22nd. Francesco Bagnaia (SKY Racing Team VR46) and Andrea Locatelli (San Carlo Team Italia) were forced out with technical problems. All riders were not seriously hurt, though Hanika had a finger injury assessed in the medical centre.

Dovizioso Scores Excellent Fourth Place In The Tim San Marino


Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) produced another fine performance today at Misano in the TIM San Marino and Rimini Riviera Grand Prix to finish fourth at the flag. The Italian rider, who started from row 2 of the grid after qualifying sixth yesterday, was fifth at the end of the opening lap behind fellow Ducati man Andrea Iannone and was then passed by Pedrosa on lap 4. Both riders moved ahead of the Pramac man on lap 8, and after Marquez’s crash, they found themselves in a battle for third. Constantly setting quick lap times, Dovizioso remained right on Pedrosa’s tail until the final lap, but he was unable to pass the Honda rider and had to settle for fourth ahead of Iannone, who was fifth at the flag.

Espargaro And Smith Blaze To Strong Finishes At Misano


Pol Espargaro produced a mature and inspired ride to finish in 6th position in his first encounter of the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli aboard his Yamaha YZR-M1. The young Spaniard started round 13 of the MotoGP World Championship in a highly impressive manner by surging to 2nd position in the warm up, having just been beaten to the top spot in the dying seconds by Valentino Rossi. This left the rookie highly optimistic and ready for the 28 lap battle at the 4226 meter circuit which he began from 7th on the grid. As the lights flicked to green, Espargaro launched off the start line with promising speed and he completed the first lap in 6th position before setting his fastest time of the race on his 2nd lap. Right from the beginning of the 28 lap race, the Spanish rookie was able to build up a gap over the pack and with the lap numbers falling, Espargaro managed to maintain this placement until the finish flag. His capture of more valuable championship points lifts him back up to 6th in the standings after another impressive ride in his debut season in MotoGP.

Schrotter Determinedly Duels To Points In Misano


Marcel Schrotter rode to a well executed 11th position today at the clockwise 4226 meter Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the San Marino Grand Prix. The German rider started the Moto2 sprint from the middle of the fourth row and undertook a strong start, reaching 9th by the end of the first lap before becoming involved in a battle for 8th position featuring four additional riders. However, the young German exceeded the track limit at the mid point of the race and had to move back one place as a penalty on lap 15 which saw him completing the lap in 13th. Yet Schrotter persevered to reclaim the position back from Matthia Pasini two laps later and remained intent on clawing back the gap to the pack in front. His relentless pace continued before he moved up a position on the last lap and soared across the line to clinch 11th after setting his fastest lap of the race on the final run. The result today saw Schrotter collect further valuable points to strengthen his World Championship position, which sees him just outside top ten in 12th.
