Ducati does it again: Andrea Dovizioso wins at the Spielberg

A great race, exciting duels right up to the very last corner, enthusiastic fans and an unbelievable atmosphere in front of a beautiful Styrian backdrop: This was the NeroGiardini Motorcycle Grand Prix of Austria.

To the gallery

The racing on Sunday once again enveloped the Red Bull Ring with a magical atmosphere, caused by thousands of fans who came to see the fascinating world of MotoGP. And they delivered: The on-track action couldn't have been any better.

Ducati triumphs in last second

Andrea Dovizioso took the win ahead of Marc Márquez and Dani Pedrosa and is the new crowned king of Spielberg. Prior to the race it seemed the big question was whether it would be Ducati or Honda – and the leading trio swapped places in almost every corner and on every lap. In the final laps, the two broke away from the chasing pack and were separated by just 0.159 seconds. On the last two corners the Italian and the Spaniard delivered the most exciting duel of the year: Márquez demonstrated his unconditional will to win and his sheer motorcycle talent but in the end, it was Andrea Dovizioso who took the win: Ducati and the Red Bull Ring, that’s just Amore.

Márquez: "This is MotoGP!"

Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati): "It's been a very difficult weekend. We had problems with the tires. But today my bike was just brilliant, so I want to thank the whole team. It was a hard fight with Marc, but at the end I was able to get on the gas a bit earlier and cross the line in first position. I am mega happy!"

Marc Márquez (Honda): "An unbelievable fight! I really had to push and was on the limit all the time. I did everything on the last lap until the last corner, I risked everything. Unfortunately, it was not enough, but it was great fun! This is MotoGP!"

KTM equals Top 10 from Brno, The Doctor manages only seventh

Mika Kallio should be proud of his achievement after entering the Austrian GP with a Wildcard: The rider from Finland earned 10th place and demonstrated the evolution of the KTM Factory Racing team. Spanish rider Pol Espargaro had to retire with a technical problem, Bradley Smith came home in 18th.

Superstar Valentino Rossi had to fight his fading tires and came home in seventh. A new lap record was set by Johann Zarco and now stands at 1:24.312 minutes.

Hair-raising atmosphere: Motorsport is a religion

A total of 201589 fans saw the second running of the MotoGP at the Red Bull Ring and made it the biggest sport event of the year in this country. The KTM grandstand celebrated the first Austrian race of the home brand Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team, the Valentino Rossi grandstand celebrated in yellow for their doctor. Prior to the big races, fans partied for full two days at the camping places, as well as at the MotoGP Fan Village with concerts, DJs and FMX-Shows. Beach volleyball Ace Hannes Jagerhofer was amazed: "Motorsport is a religion, you can feel that here. It’s mega. We have to thank those who made this happen here. I am more than impressed."

Celebrity MotoGP fans

Andi Goldberger, Gerhard Berger and Tobias Moretti joined the red-white-red party as did Dominik Paris, Armin Assinger, Christof Innerhofer and the ÖFB-ladies around Viktoria Schnaderbeck. Also on site: Gregor Schlierenzauer and the beach volleyball Duo Clemens Doppler and Alexander Horst, who had just returned with a silver medal.
