Martin winner, Quartararo in the points

Jorge Martin won the Portuguese Grand Prix this Sunday in MotoGP. This crazy race saw, among others, the Spaniard Pedro Acosta create a sensation by getting on the podium, the Frenchman Fabio Quartararo take 7th place and the world champion Francesco Bagnaia bite the dust with Marc Marquez.

We know that the Algarve circuit always makes the Portuguese motorcycle Grand Prix exciting. This year, he was even completely crazy. Like the personality invited to wave the checkered flag during the final passage of the competitors: José Mourinho himself. No fewer than three drivers crashed in the final laps, losing their places in the top 10 at the same time.. The first twist saw the reigning world champion, Francesco Bagnaia, go to the mat following a collision with Marc Marquez in the middle of an overtaking maneuver in a corner less than five laps from the epilogue.

Respectively 5th and 6th, the Italian and the Spaniard fell back to the last positions of the race before throwing in the towel. A misadventure that could not be more cruel. But an even better placed candidate also experienced tragedy. Winner of the sprint race the day before and in the fight for third place, Maverick Vinales lost control of his machine and his exit from the road caused his fall. Forced to retire, the Spaniard did not finish the Grand Prix which was won hands down by his compatriot Jorge Martin. Starting in 3rd position on the starting grid, he immediately stole first place and never left it.

The surprise Acosta, Quartararo, 7eme

He is ahead of Enea Bastianini and the surprise guest of this race, Pedro Acosta. The man who only competed in his second career Grand Prix takes his very first podium. The misfortune of some makes the happiness of others, the unfortunate adventures of the three candidates mentioned above also allowed the French Fabio Quartararo to move up from 10th to 7th place. A performance granting him 9 points at the World Championship where he jointly occupies 10th place with the Italian Fabio Di Giannantonio with 15 points. This ranking is dominated by the winner of the day, Jorge Martin (60 points), ahead of the South African Brad Binder (42 points), 4th this Sunday in the south of Portugal.

The Italian Enea Bastianini is 3rd (39 points) while his compatriot Francesco Bagnaia has fallen to the foot of the podium (37 points). The Spaniard Marc Marquez (27 points) also fell in the hierarchy (6th).
