Dovizioso wins San Marino GP; Marquez extends lead

Italy’s Andrea Dovizioso and the Ducati team won on home soil at the San Marino Grand Prix yesterday, while Marc Marquez extended his lead atop the MotoGP standings.

Starting fourth, Dovizioso quickly moved up the grid then passed pole sitter and teammate Jorge Lorenzo of Spain to take the lead early at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on Italy’s Adriatic coast and wasn’t challenged the rest of the way. It was Dovizioso’s third win this season and the 11th of his MotoGP career. Lorenzo was in a tight battle with compatriot and Honda’s Marquez for second until he fell with two laps to go. That handed second to Marquez, while his teammate Cal Crutchlow of Britain finished third. Lorenzo got back on his bike to finish 17th. Marquez now leads Dovizioso by 67 points, while Italy’s Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi — who finished seventh — dropped from second to third in the standings, 70 points behind.
