And suddenly Rins achieves victory in front of Márquez

What a MotoGP race that of Phillip Island, with a immeasurable Alex Rins, in his fourth victory in the queen class, and with Marc Márquez in a second place that means his return to the podium since Misano 2021 (he won that race) and his best result since his fourth operation on his right arm, in June this year. This is his 100th podium in MotoGP and his 139th in total, equaling Ángel Nieto.

The two Spaniards achieved such good results beating both on the last lap a Bagnaia that started the final lap in front of them, but that he succumbed to them with two passes at turn 2, a long left that seemed endless for the Italian.

From there, both pushed hard to the finish line escaping from the Ducati squad that was chasing them, occupying from third to eighth place with Pecco, Bezzecchi, Marini, Marini, Martin and Zarco. Behind them, but cut off, at 1.4 from Zarco, an Aleix crossed the finish line who had the Phillip Island circuit marked in red as a victory option, but in which he went from more to less.

The Aprilia rider is still third overall, but already 27 points behind the leader with only 50 at stake, with which almost all options for a title that Quartararo has also begun to say goodbye to have escaped him. The Frenchman is no longer the leader of the general classification, after a disastrous race for him…

Fabio arrived with a two-point lead over Pecco and heads to Malaysia 14 behind the Italian. His race began to get complicated when he left on the fourth lap, when he was seventh. It is as if he had given himself a long lap penalty because, instead of turning to the right at turn 4, he went straight and traced through the LLP area. The champion returned to the track 22nd and crashed four laps later when he was running fifteenth.

It will depend on Quartararo that the World Cup arrives alive in Valencia, but in Malaysia the Ducati rider will already have a title ball that will happen by adding 11 points more than the Frenchman at the Sepang circuit and not losing more than two compared to Aleix. For example, a win for him combined with a fourth for Yamaha.

Going back to the Phillip Island carrerón, to say that the local hero, Miller, went to the ground because Álex Márquez accidentally wore it on the ninth lap, right on the curve that had been named after the Italian the day before. And as for the end, Márquez tried to overtake Rins until the finish line, but the day the Suzuki rider is inspired, and here he was, he is unbeatable. Álex has three victories in MotoGP and all three are from the throne. In the previous one he also beat Márquez in the last breath. There he was beating him on the same goal line and here he was masterfully closing the door. Too bad that Suzuki has so few races left in the World Championship, because there is technical and human material for much more than what has been achieved, which is not little. In any case, let them take away the dance from a Rins that next year will fight face to face with Márquez on the back of a Honda. Let’s see who wins then, but what a great signing that LCR Honda takes with this Rins that has closed a memorable Spanish triplet in Australia, because before him Izan Guevara had already won, with Moto3 title included, and Alonso López in Moto2. How big!
