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
