At almost every single MotoGP race this year, a new victor has been crowned. At the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, polesitter Maverick Vinales was able to turn his first-place start into a win. But he very nearly didn’t achieve the win had it not been for a late-race crash that took out the leading rider.

That isn’t to say it was an easy ride for Vinales. The rider did manage to secure a solid setup during warm-up, but he started the race on the wrong tires and had to work doubly hard to stay up front.

Vinales claimed his first MotoGP win of the season – and became the sixth different race winner of 2020 – in the second of back-to-back races By the end I expected a little bit of a drop in the tyre but it came a little bit earlier," Espargaro told MotoGP ' s official website. "I just wanted to keep Maverick near.

Premac rider Francesco Bagnaia pushed into the lead early in the race, opening up a large gap between himself and the competition while chaos struck behind him. Valentino Rossi slid and ultimately had to withdraw from competition. Brad Binder crashed.

It was, unfortunately, Bagnaia’s race to lose. On lap 21, he was managing a one-second gap between himself and second-place Vinales when he lost control in Turn 6 and crashed.

Vinales took the lead, and he didn’t look back.

Disappointment came for Fabio Quartararo, who was sitting firmly in third place and battling with Joan Mir for second. He exceeded track limits one too many times and was served with a long lap penalty. A long lap penalty requires a rider to ride through a specifically designated line through the run-off asphalt that is several seconds slower than the racing line.

In this case, Quartararo did not serve the penalty because it came on the last lap. He was served a three-second time penalty instead. As a result, Quartararo finished in fourth.

The ride of the race might just have to go to Mir, though. The rider, who started back in 11th, finished a solid second place.
