Perfect one-two finish for Repsol Honda Team in Misano


Alex Marquez returned to winning ways with a masterful display in San Marino as Marc Marquez scored his first virtual podium with a scintillating second.

With the times in Qualifying as close as ever, the fourth virtual race of 2020 looked set to be another closer fought affair with many of the regulars back at the front. As the lights went out, it was Alex Marquez who got the jump into Turn One from second on the grid aboard his Repsol Honda Team RC213V with World Champion Marc Marquez close behind.

The early laps saw Alex fighting with Quartararo and briefly Bagnaia, two of Alex’s consistent rivals for the podium. Bagnaia’s challenge faded early and soon the 2019 Moto2 World Champion was left with just Quartararo to battle him. Expert defending kept the French rider behind until the closing moments when the pair collided and handed the lead to Marc on the second Repsol Honda Team machine. A hard fight erupted over the final lap between Alex and Marc, but it would be Alex Marquez who took the win in a thrilling last corner battle, earning his second victory of the virtual season in fine style. 25 points for the win moves him to the head of the championship table with a total of 86 points.

Debrief: Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta gives an update on 2020


On Wednesday the 29th of April, Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta sat down with motogp.com for an interview about 2020, plans, contingencies and more.

"Today we announced the cancellation of the three Grands Prix; Germany, Assen and Finland. The reason is because we are contemplating the possibility to start in July but the problem is with the situation and authorities it will be difficult to do with spectators, so any of these Grands Prix without spectators is very difficult to do. It’s for that reason that we’ve decided with the three local promoters to pass onto next year with those three, instead of putting them on a new date."
