Here is your Monday motorsport round-up of the top categories of world motor racing. If you missed it somehow, Red Bull
The only major motorsport event this weekend was the MotoGP race held at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.
Ducati rider Jorge Lorenzo was victorious over championship leader Marc Marquez (Honda) with the other works Ducati of Andrea Dovizioso in third.
“It was an incredible race, maybe one of the best of my career, quite simply spectacular! Winning with Ducati on this circuit, where I had never won before, after a close quarters battle with Marquez, has a really special taste. Before the race I had thought about which strategy to use, and I decided to do like Brno, administering the tyre wear well and then attacking in the final part of the race, especially because I was one of the few riders who had chosen ‘soft’ tyres and my riding style allowed me to conserve them until the end. When I found myself fighting against Marquez I knew that it was going to be difficult to pass him, so I decided to improvise by making the best use of the Desmosedici GP’s acceleration and it worked perfectly. Now we’re third in the championship standings, but above all I’m proud and very pleased with the way we’re working because the feeling with the bike is better and better all the time and I believe we can fight for the win in many other races. Now let’s just enjoy this moment with all the team and I’m also very happy for them,” said the race winner in a post-race interview.
