Moto GP 2015 Round 14 Aragon ***SPOILER***

Well San Marino was just nuts to say the least, what a crazy race!! first time we ever saw flag to flag to flag :P JL99 had the unfortunate accident (he's ok which is great) Vale hung on way to long with wet tires and only managed a P5, but did increase his points lead (23) but will it be enough??. The remaining races are going to be epic!! JL99/VR46 fight to the finish now!! Marc will always be in the mix, fantastic last race!


About the circuit

An ultra-modern facility, MotorLand Aragón had its roots firmly established thanks to a solid history of street racing in Alcañiz, which hosted events between 1963 and 2003. Safety advice warning against the continuation of this led to the proposal and construction of a sporting complex dedicated to motorsport.
With support from local institutions, renowned German architect Hermann Tilke was commissioned to design the facility. The circuit, which is 5.077km long and has 17 turns, was roundly praised by riders after its first Grand Prix in 2010, and it was rewarded with the IRTA Best Grand Prix of the Year award, the first time a circuit had received the prize in its debut year.

MotoGP Aragon: Rossi: 'I still need to beat Lorenzo' 21 September 2015
“...nine points for five races is more than my advantage. So we need to try to arrive in front of Jorge.” - Valentino Rossi.
Valentino Rossi may have broken 23-points clear of MotoGP title rival Jorge Lorenzo, but the Italian doubts the advantage is enough to follow his team-mate home in the remaining five rounds.

Rossi almost doubled his championship lead despite a season-worst fifth place at Misano, due to Lorenzo's crashing out for the first time this year.

However if Lorenzo won all five remaining races, with Rossi in second place, Lorenzo would still win the title by two points.

But the biggest unknown for the Yamahas involves reigning double champion Marc Marquez.

The Repsol Honda star won his fourth race of the season at Misano and, although 63 points from Rossi and therefore a long way from title contention, has the pace to challenge Rossi and Lorenzo at every round.

Rossi's biggest fear is that he could find himself finishing in third place, behind Lorenzo (1st) and Marquez (2nd), meaning a loss of nine points in a single race.

“For me the championship situation is that first of all Marquez is far - but with Marquez, until he is not out mathematically, he is still in the championship. So we have to consider him,” Rossi said.

“About me and Jorge, for sure 23 points is a good advantage with five races. But we still have to try to win every weekend or arrive on the podium, because Jorge has the potential to win everywhere and also Marc.

“Which means if you start to think too much about the championship you can lose nine points every Sunday. And nine points for five races is more than my advantage. So we need to try to arrive in front of Jorge.”

If Rossi beats Lorenzo at Aragon this weekend, regardless of where Marquez finishes, he should push his title advantage past the psychological 25-points. That would mean Rossi could afford a DNF and still keep the championship lead.

Absolutely blistering pole for Marc! wow! Vale in the usual 2nd row, going to be tough to catch Marc and Jorge....

Marquez destroys his own record on way to pole
Marc Marquez obliterated his own record on the way to claiming his 7th pole of the season ahead of Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Iannone.
Repsol Honda’s Marquez set the fastest ever lap by a MotoGP™ bike around the 5km MotorLand Aragon circuit as he claimed his 29th premier class pole position in a thrilling Q2 session. The Spaniard made the most of ideal conditions (Track temp. 38˚C) at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón to set a 1’46.635 on his first run to completely annihilate his own 2014 Pole Record (1’47.187) in the process by over half a second. The reigning MotoGP™ World Champion utilised a two-stop strategy and appeared to be going even quicker on his third run before he lost the front at turn 2, walking away unhurt.

Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo, who had earlier topped FP3 after dominating on Friday, was the only rider to get within 0.5s of Marquez. Lorenzo finished 0.108s off the pace of Marquez as he attempts to close the 23-point gap in the standings to his teammate Valentino Rossi. Lorenzo was the only other rider to break the 1’47 barrier as he claimed his 11th front row start of the season and 6th in a row.

Ducati Team’s Andrea Iannone pulled off the surprise of the day to complete the front row despite riding through the pain barrier. The Italian re-dislocated his left shoulder in a training accident after Misano but managed to set a time good enough to secure his fourth front row start of the season and first since Mugello. Incredibly though, he was over half a second off the pace off Marquez as 0.543s separated the top three riders.

Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Pol Espargaro (+0.699s) put in a sensational lap to start from the front of the second row in fourth as the leading Satellite rider. This equalled the Spaniards best qualifying performance of the season at Jerez.

Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa (+0.722s) had topped the earlier FP4 session but will start Sunday’s race from fifth. Pedrosa had found himself on the provisional front row after the first run but could only improve by three-hundredths of a second on his second run and will have to start from the middle of the second row.

Movistar Yamaha’s championship leader Rossi (+0.857s) was staring down the barrel of a third row start before he managed to respond on his final lap to set a time good enough for sixth. The nine-time World Champion found himself 0.749s off the pace off his closest rival Lorenzo in what was his worst qualifying performance since Indianapolis.

Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Aleix Espargaro made use of the minor engine upgrade brought by his team to Aragon to set the seventh fastest time in his best qualifying performance since the Sachsenring.

LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow will start from the middle of the third row as he lost out to Espargaro by just 0.001s. The British rider improved from 13th on the combined timesheets on Friday to finish in tenth ahead of Danilo Petrucci on the Octo Pramac Racing Ducati. Petrucci earlier had made it through from Q1 with his teammate Yonny Hernandez at the expense of Andrea Dovizioso on the Factory Ducati who will be forced to start from 13th.

Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Bradley Smith recovered from an earlier crash at turn 5 in FP3 to complete the top ten, while Hernandez and the second Suzuki GSX-RR of Maverick Viñales round out the fourth row.

EG 0,0 Marc VDS’s Scott Redding will start form 14th, while Eugene Laverty (Aspar MotoGP Team) is the leading Open class rider in 15th in his best qualifying performance since Argentina. His teammate Nicky Hayden qualified in 15th despite riding with a broken thumb while Australian Jack Miller will start from the middle of row seven in 20th.

Wow, Dani woke up today! Great battle with Vale, very enjoyable.

Loved the Rins Rabat battle in moto2 as well but was gutted for Danny Kent in moto3. That crash will annoy the sh*t outta him.

yup it was an epic battle with Dani and Vale!!! Marc down yet again :( what a season he's had... He will still fight for the remaining races and will no doubt be back stronger and hopefully wiser next season. Vale at least managed a P3 and podium, but P3's and even P2's wont mean much if JL99 continues his dominance....

Race Results:
Jorge Lorenzo takes a lights to flag victory in the Aragon MotoGP after main rival Marc Marquez crashed out - for the fifth time this season - while chasing the Yamaha rider on lap 2.

Title leader Valentino Rossi rode swiftly from sixth to third, then spent most of the race tucked in behind second place Dani Pedrosa.

Rossi and Pedrosa passed each other repeatedly during the final laps, Pedrosa just holding on to second, meaning Rossi's championship lead over Lorenzo has been cut from 23 to 14 points with four rounds remaining.

Andrea Iannone recently re-dislocated his left shoulder in training, Nicky Hayden broke was riding with a broken right thumb, while Toni Elias has taken over from Claudio Corti at Forward Racing...

Lorenzo takes a bite out of Rossi’s lead
Jorge Lorenzo takes his sixth win of the season ahead of Dani Pedrosa and championship rival Valentino Rossi as Marc Marquez crashes out.
Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo rode brilliantly to secure his 60th career GP victory in front of 67,000 fans at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón. Repsol Honda’s Pedrosa was involved in an excellent fight with Rossi over the final few laps for the second step of the podium at MotorLand Aragon. Eventually Pedrosa would beat Rossi to the line by just a tenth of a second, while his teammate Marc Marquez crashed out of the race.

This means that Lorenzo has reduced Rossi’s advantage in the standings by 9 points to just 14 heading into the flyaway rounds, with just four races remaining. Movistar Yamaha’s first double podium since Brno saw them lift the team title for the first time since 2010.

There was drama at the start, as Marquez seemed to make a mistake allowing Lorenzo to lead into the first corner with Iannone in second, as the pole man dropped down to third. The Spaniard recovered to make a move on Iannone into second through the first few corners and set off after Lorenzo at the front.

Rossi, who knew he couldn’t let Lorenzo get away, started making his way through the field from sixth on the grid immediately, moving up to fifth at the end of the first lap at the expense of Pol Espargaro. The Italian was already two seconds behind Lorenzo in second.

Unbelievably, just as he was closing down Lorenzo at the front, Marquez lost the front at turn 12 and crashed out of the Aragon GP for the second year in a row. It was Marquez’s fifth DNF of the year - the most he has ever had in a World Championship season - which sees him now trail Rossi by 70 points in the standings with only 100 up for grabs.

Marquez's crash moved Iannone up into second, but not for long as Marquez’s teammate Pedrosa passed the Ducati man on the 3rd lap. All the while Lorenzo was looking untouchable at the front as he opened up a 2.4s lead by the end of lap 3.

Rossi knew he had to get a move on and he passed Iannone to move into 3rd on the 4th lap, although at this point he was lapping 0.3s a lap slower than Lorenzo as his teammate opened up a 3 second lead at the front. Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Espargaro was involved in the battle for fourth with Iannone when he ran wide on lap 6 and dropped down to 11th.

By lap 8 both Pedrosa and Rossi started to lap faster than Lorenzo and the gap had been reduced to 2.6s. Lorenzo got the “hurry up” signal from his pit board and responded, managing his pace beautifully over the next few laps.

Further back through the field Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Aleix Espargaro had caught Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) in sixth and was starting to attack, while Cal Crutchlow and Danilo Petrucci also started to close in on the duo in front of them. That was before Petrucci trailed the brakes too much into turn 14 with 13 laps to go and lost the front, leading to Petrucci’s first DNF since the Malaysian Grand Prix last year. Smith, Espargaro and Crutchlow caught up with Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso in fifth with 12 laps to go and an excellent battle ensued between the four riders. However Smith ran wide at turn 1 and dropped to the back of the group, undoing all of his hard work.

With 10 laps to go the gap at the front between Lorenzo and Pedrosa was up to 3.3s, with Rossi still hanging onto the back wheel of the Repsol Honda in third. Lorenzo was riding a simply brilliant race at the front, consistently running in the 1’48s and increasing his lead on every lap.

Rossi meanwhile, was starting to size up Pedrosa ahead of him in an effort to secure a vital extra 4 championship points by finishing in second. With 5 laps to go he made his first move in anger into turn 4 but Pedrosa immediately responded to re-take the Italian. Undeterred, Rossi tried it again into turn 1, but he couldn’t get it stopped and once more Pedrosa fought back as the two became embroiled in a spectacular duel over the final few laps.

On the penultimate lap, once again Rossi made a move under braking into turn 1, but once again he could not get his M1 stopped and couldn’t make it stick as Pedrosa showed incredible grit to fight back. It was shaping up for an epic final lap battle between the two and it didn’t disappoint, Rossi went past in turn 4, before Pedrosa stuffed it up the inside into turn 7. It seemed as though Pedrosa had second in the bag, before Rossi made an outrageous move through turn 15, but once more he couldn’t make it stick. The Italian sacrificing the drive onto the back straight in an effort to make the pass, meaning Pedrosa could power his way back past Rossi.

In an incredibly exciting finish Pedrosa managed to hold on through the final corner to take second by just nine-hundredths of a second from Rossi. All the while Lorenzo rode the perfect race at the front as he took his 39th premier class victory by over 2.6s.

It was Pedrosa’s 97th premier class podium, but only his third of the season and first since the German GP. Rossi claimed his 14th podium from just 15 races this season and the 209th in his illustrious GP career, although the damage done to his championship lead could prove to be costly in his bid for a tenth title.

Ducati Team’s Andrea Iannone ended up in an excellent fourth despite having to ride through the pain due to the shoulder he re-dislocated earlier in the week. He crossed the line 16 seconds ahead of his teammate Andrea Dovizioso who finished in fifth after holding off the charging pack behind him.

Aleix Espargaro came out victorious in the battle for sixth, crossing the line ahead of Cal Crutchlow and Bradley Smith in a frantic dash to the line. Pol Espargaro managed to fight his way back into ninth, while Yonny Hernandez on the Octo Pramac Racing Ducati completed the top ten.

EG 0,0 Marc VDS’s Scott Redding finished in twelfth, while Aprilia Racing Team Gresini's Alvaro Bautista crossed the line in 13th in his 100th GP. Eugene Laverty (Aspar MotoGP Team) took his first Open victory in 14th as he beat his teammate Nicky Hayden to the line by less then a tenth of a second. Forward Racing’s Loris Baz was in 17th having earlier announced he will make the switch to the Avintia Racing team for 2016. Australian Jack Miller on the Open LCR Honda finished in 19th while there were crashes for Karel Abraham and Alex De Angelis.

All of this means that Rossi (263pts) saw his advantage over Lorenzo (249pts) in the MotoGP™ championship standings reduced by nine to just 14 points with four races remaining. Marquez (184pts) remains in third, but now he is only 8 points ahead of fourth placed Iannone.

I think it's a long shot for sure. JL is just too consistent, and too fast.

Like alot of you have said. So glad to see Dani at it again. I have been a Dani fan for quite a few years. Unfortunately I don't see a title search in his future. It is still awesome to see him up there fighting like that.

When in doubt. Flat out.
Iannone and Lorenzo are now seagulls buddies for life. -AF4iK

Dani is Awesome!

That's the first time I think I've seen him smile.

Even with the helmet on, you could see he wasn't shadowed and happy.
