Season so far: Spanish Grand Prix

Jack Miller pounced on Fabio Quartararo’s arm pump struggles to take an emotional first win in the famous red of Ducati

He was written off and slated from every angle after a turbulent start to 2021. But Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo Team) silenced every single one of those critics by shocking the two-wheeled world and taking an unlikely win at the Red Bull Spanish Grand Prix. The Australian was the ultimate opportunist as he pounced all over a serious problem that saw Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) fall from a comfortable two second lead to outside the top ten in just a handful of laps. Joining Miller on the podium was new MotoGP™ World Championship leader Francesco Bagnaia, making it the first Ducati 1-2 in three years, and Petronas Yamaha SRT’s Franco Morbidelli.


What caused Quartararo's shocking drop from 1st to 13th?

It was all going swimmingly for the factory Yamaha man. A hat-trick of MotoGP™ wins were surely there for the taking. Before drama struck halfway through the Jerez race as the Frenchman suddenly began dropping like a stone through the field. In the space of a handful of laps, he went from first to thirteenth. He explains it all here.

Scare for Marquez as he sends RC213V flying into airfence

On Saturday, Marc Marquez had the biggest scare yet on his return to MotoGP™ by suffering his first crash. And it was a big one. The front-end letting go at the fast Turn 7 saw him fly into the air fences, before thankfully rising to his feet and returning to action for the rest of the weekend.
