In the MotoGp of Spain Quartararo wins, a bad fall for Marquez.
Fabio Quartararo, 21, runs for the Yamaha satellite group, had started on pole position and his biggest threat, Marc Marquez, failed when the reigning world champion crashed on lap 20, breaking his arm.
Fabio Quartararo is the first French rider to win a Moto GP since 1999, conquering the Spanish circuit of Jerez in the opening race of the season.
Quartararo, 21, runs for the Yamaha satellite group, had started on pole position and his biggest threat, Marc Marquez, failed when the reigning world champion crashed on lap 20, breaking his arm.
Despite Quartararo's pole it was Marquez who dominated at the start, until a first fall that forced him to sixteenth place.
A setback that did not worry the champion, protagonist of a sensational comeback that brought him back to third position.
At the moment of going to press the head of the race overcoming Vinales, however, a new fall, this time more serious: he was taken away on a stretcher and reappeared on the track edge with bandage on his arm and collar.
Behind Vinales, finishing second, Dovizioso, protagonist of a great test. Disappointment for Valentino Rossi that while trying to stay in the top ten he was forced to retire from a breakdown.
For the moment the show will take place in a muffled environment, in compliance with a very rigid protocol. In Jerez, those who entered the paddock during the weekend had to go through a buffer before departure, then once they arrived in Andalusia the only authorized route was the one from the hotel to the circuit. Every morning the team managers had to communicate the temperature of their employees, using an app created for this purpose, in which they also notified the appearance of any symptoms. All monitored, therefore, even the few journalists. Within the circuits only the operators of the rights holders are allowed.
