Second win for Morbidelli
Motorcycling: Petronas Yamaha’s Franco Morbidelli produced a master class to keep the Suzuki duo of Alex Rins and Joan Mir at bay and claim his second win of the season with victory at the Teruel Grand Prix in Spain yesterday.
Rins finished second behind the Italian, while championship leader Mir, who has yet to win a race this season, was third, extending his lead to 14 points over Morbidelli’s teammate, Fabio Quartararo, who finished eighth.
Polesitter Takaaki Nakagami, who became the first Japanese rider in 16 years to clinch a premierclass pole, endured heartbreak when he crashed on the opening lap while the LCR Honda rider was in the lead. — Reuters
