Jorge Martin of Spain secured victory in Sunday’s San Marino MotoGP, narrowing the gap in the championship standings behind Italian world champion Francesco Bagnaia, who finished third just a week after a harrowing crash in Catalonia. Martin’s win came as a result of his dominant performance on the Misano circuit, with Italy’s Marco Bezzecchi, riding an unofficial Ducati, finishing second.
Despite his recent accident in Barcelona, where Brad Binder miraculously escaped serious leg injuries, world champion Bagnaia took third place aboard a yellow Ducati designed by Aldo Drudi, paying tribute to the company’s rich history in Bologna. Spain’s Dani Pedrosa, riding for KTM, secured an impressive fourth-place finish.
Following his victory in Saturday’s sprint race, Martin now trails the Turin-born champion by 35 points in the championship standings, with Bagnaia leading the pack with 282 points.
