Michelin Heads South For Its Named Grand Prix


Michelin is heading over the equator for only the second time this season as the French tyre company and MotoGP™ descends upon Phillip Island for the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix and the 16th round of this enthralling season.

With a race bearing its name as the official sponsor, expectations and pressure is high for Michelin as it moves to one of the most challenging events of the season. The 4,448m circuit is a fast and flowing layout that gives one of the ultimate tests to tyres throughout the whole calendar. With high-speed turns such as Doohan and Stoner Corners and the awe-inspiring turn-12 – a corner which generates the highest tyre temperature on any circuit in MotoGP and leads on to the famous Gardner Straight – this is certainly a track that supplies constant excitement. These incredible corners create high stresses on the tyres and to combat this Michelin has developed a range ideally suited to these unique conditions. The MICHELIN Power Slicks for both the front and rear will be in a soft, medium and hard compound and will feature an asymmetric design with a harder left-hand shoulder to cope with the extra demands faced by that side of the tyre and the increased heat.

Eye of the Storm: Marquez vs Dovizioso fires up the Island

Eye of the Storm: Marquez vs Dovizioso fires up the Island


Closer than ever, the crusade for the crown arrives at one of the most breathtaking venues in the world: Phillip Island
In the aftermath of the duel of the decade at the Twin Ring Motegi between Championship leader Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) and title rival Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) - which the Italian won - the dust must settle quickly in order to be kicked up once more as MotoGP™ heads for the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island. A few hours south of Melbourne, the skyscrapers and bright lights seem a distant memory as the bridge to the Island comes into view, beckoning to those who are on their way to one of the most spectacular Grand Prix circuits in the world. There is no other track on Earth quite like this one.

As the paddock arrives in 2017, it’s Marquez ahead and by just 11 points. The reigning Champion will go into the race as the favourite to tame the 12 undulating, iconic corners of the Island, taking into account both his record in 2017 and his speed at the track. Marquez has in fact only finished one premier class race in Australia – the scintillating Island Battle in 2015, which he won. In 2016 he crashed out of the lead once already Champion, in 2014 he did the same, and he has been on pole for the last three years at the track. It was also the stage of one of his most memorable Moto2™ performances in 2011: starting from the back due to a penalty, Marquez picked his way through the field to the podium. With eight podiums now in the last nine races this season in MotoGP™ - missing out only once due to a technical fault at Silverstone - Marquez’ speed will be hard to match. He has a target on his back as the points leader already, and this weekend it gets bigger.

2017 Japanese GP (Motegi): MotoGP Race Results - The duel of Champions: Dovizioso vs Marquez at Motegi


In pouring rain at the Twin Ring Motegi, Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) and Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) staged one of the greatest MotoGP™ duels of all time, putting everything on the line down to the final lap, and the final corner. And despite the best efforts of the reigning Champion, it was Andrea Dovizioso who emerged victorious from ‘Victory’ corner in Japan – taking his fifth win of the season, the seventh of his career, and one of the most spectacular in history. Marquez was an incredibly close second, with Danilo Petrucci (Octo Pramac Racing) completing the podium.

It was Marquez took the lead off the front row, with Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) soon pouncing on the first lap to take second and then take over in the lead. Marquez was followed by Petrucci and Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), with Dovizioso staging a stunning start to tag on the back. Marquez then fought back as Lorenzo moved back slightly, before Petrucci struck at the front and the trio who would head the remaining laps was decided: Petrucci, Marquez, and Dovizioso.
