Austrian GP top 3

MotoGP: Bagnaia dominates Austrian GP

Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia took a lights to flag victory in the Austrian Grand Prix to complete his third sprint/GP double of 2023.

Bagnaia and Binder were the class of the field from the start of the grand prix.

Soon stretching away, Binder – perhaps aware of the risk of soaring tire pressures – looked eager to try and make an early pass for the lead.

Marco Bezzecchi passed Alex Marquez with a Turn 8 pass with 6 laps to go to seal the final podium position.

Luca Marini also passed Marquez for 4th while Marquez hung on to round out the top-5.
