Marquez triumphs in Indianapolis

Finally, Márquez has prevailed by obtaining his second consecutive victory, and keeping the nail burning for the championship. Lorenzo was second and cut four points from a Rossi who was third.
The reigning double world champion triumphed again in ‘Indy’ for the fifth consecutive year, between Moto2 and MotoGP, and he did so by overtaking a great Lorenzo with three laps remaining. The balea took the lead with a great start from third place and set a great pace to dominate the race under the watchful eye of Cervera. The same situation took place in the other Honda of Dani Pedrosa and Rossi.
The four strongest drivers in the World Cup ran away from the start. Lorenzo tried to outrun Márquez, but the Honda, at the stroke of a circuit record, did not give up its efforts until it saw the opportunity to pass the Majorcan with the race reaching its end and taking advantage of the top speed of his motorcycle.
Márquez escaped to add his second consecutive victory after that of Germany before the summer break. The one from Cervera, with three victories already this year, once again proved to be back after a difficult first section of the season, with options still to surprise a Rossi who does not leave a podium on the road.
And it is that the Italian returned to finish in the top three for the tenth consecutive race. His fight with Pedrosa was also worthy of this scene, the cradle of speed. The World Cup leader (195 points) still saved an ace up his sleeve to lose only four points to Lorenzo (186).
The Mallorcan pilot was left with honey on his lips but his second place allows him to meet the goal of cutting with the leader, now to nine points. The rain that warned eight laps from the end did not finish making an appearance, nor did it prevent the triumph of a Márquez who undoubtedly smiles again.
Behind the head battle, the rest of the Spanish riders had Pol Espargaró (Yamaha) as the best classified in seventh place. Maverick Viñales (Suzuki) finished eleventh, with his teammate Aleix Espargaró, fourteenth ahead of Héctor Barberá (Ducati), Álvaro Bautista (Aprilia) eighteenth, and Toni Elias (Honda), on his return 10 months later, twenty-second.
