Phillip Island.- The greatness that Suzuki lacks this Sunday was Alex Rins, who won masterfully at Phillip Island after another hectic duel with Marc Márquez that was not resolved until the finish line.
Third place went to Pecco Bagnaia, who is at the top of the general points table after Fabio Quartararo’s trigger. El Diablo fell to the ground while circulating in the catacombs of the peloton, where he ended up after making a mistake that led him to go long. The 14-point advantage in favor of Bagnaia will crown him world champion next week, in Malaysia, if he wins the race and if Quartararo fails to get on top of the box.
For the rest, this victory, in Australia, is the first for Rins since the one he won in Aragón two years ago, and the first for Suzuki this season, the last for the Hamamatsu factory in MotoGP.
Like the one at Silverstone, in 2019, the Barcelona runner beat Márquez in one of those high-voltage duels that, without a doubt, will be part of the video summary of the best moments of this course. This podium for Márquez, in any case, is number one hundred for the Honda rider in the heavy bike category.
Fourth place went to Marco Bezzecchi, who with this result certified his rookie of the year award, while fifth place went to Enea Bastianini (fifth).
Luca Marini finished sixth, just ahead of Jorge Martín (seventh), the author of the pole and who led the first few laps.
Eighth position went to Johann Zarco, while Aleix Espargaró finished ninth. In this way, the Aprilia man loses his footing in pursuit of Bagnaia, from whom he is 27 points behind.
Brad Binder closed the top ten, far from Pol Espargaró.
