MotoGP 2015 Assen race results
Rossi and Marquez battle it out making contact at the final chicane
VALENTINO Rossi wins race-long battle with reigning World Champion Marc Marquez at the Motul TT Assen.
Nine-time World Champion Rossi took his 111th Grand Prix victory to extend his Championship lead despite making contact with Marquez as they entered the final chicane.
Movistar Yamaha’s Rossi, starting from pole for the first time since Valencia last season, led the field into the first corner, but it didn’t take Marquez long to join in the party from third on the grid.
Marquez sat behind Rossi for the majority of the race before making his move and taking the lead into Turn 1 on lap 20.
Rossi responded with three laps to go to re-take the lead at Turn 10. The Italian put in his fastest lap of the race in an attempt to break away from the Spaniard. They were evenly matched into the final chicane.
Marquez made a move on Rossi that forced the Italian to run straight on through the gravel. Rossi managed to stay upright to take the chequered flag 1.242s ahead of Marquez.
Rossi’s Movistar Yamaha team-mate Jorge Lorenzo had a lonely race after a great start seeing him move from eighth on the grid up to third after the first lap. Rossi and Marquez pulled away from Lorenzo, but he eventually crossed the line in third 14.576s behind Rossi.
Ducati Team’s Andrea Iannone finished a furth four seconds back in fourth circulating the majority of the race on his own.
The battle for fifth was won by Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Pol Espargaro as all four rider finished within 0.4s of each other. The Spaniard also finished top Satellite rider 0.105s ahead of CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow.
Espargaro’s team-mate Bradley Smith crossed the line in seventh ahead of Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa, who fought back after a crash in Warm Up and a disastrous start which saw him down in 12th after the first lap.
The Team Suzuki Ecstar duo of Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales were next across the line in ninth and tenth respectively, ahead of Octo Pramac Racing’s Danilo Petrucci (11th) and the second Factory Ducati of Andrea Dovizioso in twelfth.
Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS’s Scott Redding finished 46.663s back from Rossi in 13th, while Loris Baz (Athina Forward Racing) took the Open class victory, and the final championship point that was up for grabs in 15th, just ahead of Aspar MotoGP Team’s Nicky Hayden who crossed the line in 16th.
Hector Barbera and Jack Miller crashed on the first lap. Barbera was taken to the medical centre for checks on his right leg, but has been declared fit.
Alex De Angelis, Eugene Laverty and Stefan Bradl also crashed out. Bradl underwent examinations and an X-ray at the Medical Centre to discover he hass a fractured scaphoid in his right wrist.
