An excellent race at Mugello played out in front of packed grandstands in the Tuscan hills, with Marc Márquez and Jorge Lorenzo putting on a sensational display at the sixth round of the 2014 MotoGP season. It was possibly the most exciting race of the season to date, and was certainly the closest as little over than a tenth of a second separated the duo at the end. Lorenzo pushed hard early on with a series of race fastest laps, with Andrea Iannone high up the order and Valentino Rossi gaining places on the opening corners. There was plenty of excitement in the early going, but it appeared as if by lap three the race was over as a spectacle. However, that would not be the case, as Márquez chased down Lorenzo with a fastest lap of his own, reaching him on Lap 5. The two rode by themselves, with Rossi watching from close behind. On Lap 17 Márquez pushed to break away, but Lorenzo kept with him and there were a series of great overtaking moves to savour. At the start of the final lap, Márquez made the definitive pass, taking the victory. From the podium, he, Lorenzo and Rossi saluted the fans who had invaded the track.

Hiroshi Aoyama took his sixth points-scoring finish from as many races with another solid showing at Mugello. He has a total of 23 to his name so far in 2014. The Italian Grand Prix was a tough one for the DRIVE M7 Aspar rider, as he focused on keeping up a consistent pace despite difficulties. He crossed the line fourteenth, taking two points for his tally.

14th Hiroshi Aoyama: "This morning we tried a different setup to that which we used yesterday in the qualifying session. We liked it a lot, so we decided to keep it for the race. But when it came to race time, the condition of the track had changed a lot and the temperature had risen substantially. During the race we suffered from a lack of grip with the rear, and it was hard for me to keep up my pace. I tried to be consistent and stay with the group that I was in. It was difficult and I had two moments in which I was close to crashing. In the end I decided to be prudent, as I wanted to finish the race and keep scoring points."
