MotoGP 2014 Motegi race results
It was all about the crowning of the new 2014 MotoGP World Champion
DESPITE Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo’s win at Motegi, it was once again Marc Marquez who stole the limelight as he sealed the MotoGP World Championship title for a second consecutive year.
Lorenzo won his second successive victory, but this was shadowed by Marquez securing the 2014 MotoGP World Championship title. The 21-year-old Spaniard crossed the line in second 1.638 seconds behind Lorenzo with his Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi finishing third.
Marquez did not make a perfect start to his title-winning race, but fought through the likes of his team-mate Dani Pedrosa and Pramac Ducati’s Andrea Iannone to hunt down the leading pack. It wasn’t long until Marquez had overtaken Andrea Dovizioso who started from pole position and then onto a battle with nine-time World Champion Rossi.
On lap 9, Marquez had picked off Rossi and had Lorenzo in his sights, but unfortunately it was too late to try for the win. Instead, the Spaniard knew he only had to finish second to seal the deal.
Pedrosa finished just off the podium in fourth with Dovizioso in fifth, 14 seconds off the pace of Lorenzo.
Rookie Pol Espargaro finished in front of his British team-mate Bradley Smith by over four seconds. The pair finished eighth and ninth respectively.
Ducati’s Cal Crutchlow crashed out after a jump-start. Karel Abraham also crashed out in the latter half of the race whilst Yonny Hernandez crashed out on the last lap. All riders were reported as uninjured.
