The leader of Moto2 reinforces his chances of winning the title by overwhelming Granollers in a final suicide round in Misano
EMILIO PÉREZ DE ROZAS / Barcelona
They are the best, both, in their style, for their professionalism, bravery, category and way of running and considering each and every one of the great prizes would undoubtedly deserve the Moto2 world title. But only one can be crowned and it is clear that Marc Márquez (Suter) is making a film season, impressive, well, in fact, identical to last year, whose title escaped him, remember, for his injury to the left eye . Today, in Misano, Márquez and a superb and spectacular Pol Espargaró (Kalex) have once again starred in the best of the season. Only them and, sometimes, only sometimes, Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa in MotoGP, are able to delight the public with a final lap in which Marc overcomes Pol with three beautiful interiors and Pol returns the play with two other interiors superagresivos. In the end, Marc won again and Pol still can not beat him in a heads up. The one from Misano is the seventh victory of the year of the champion of Cervera in 11 races, something really impressive: Qatar, Portugal, Holland, Germany, Indianapolis, Czech Republic and today in San Marino.
The race, which has been interrupted and reduced to 14 laps after the accident of the British Gino Rea left the track full of oil, has always been commanded by the local Andrea Iannone who, finally, have hunted the two great protagonists of the race. championship. First Pol has done it with a spectacular comeback and, to his slipstream, Marc has arrived. Both the young of Granollers and the champion of Cervera, have made him, with four laps to go, two spectacular interiors to Iannone, that, apparently, has ended up betraying him the choice of his rear tire.
And, from that moment, it was clear that again the little Espargaró and Márquez were going to play the victory on the last lap. The question was whether Marc, a leading World Cup leader, was going to settle for second place and, no, Márquez is never satisfied, ever. In that last turn, Márquez has crossed Espargaró three times in the interior, which has returned the maneuver twice and has harassed the Cervera in the last corner where Marc has become strong and, closing his fairings, has ended up being imposed .
“I do not like that style of running, of overtaking, but the truth is that Marc (Márquez) has done a carrerón, well, like me, but I have not been able to win”, lamented Espargaró. “I only know one thing: I’m not going to let myself get ahead on the last lap,” Márquez said. The championship is still led by Márquez (Spain), with 238 points, followed, of course, by Espargaró (Spain, 185), the Italian Andrea Iannone (Italy, 165) and the Swiss Thomas Luthi (Switzerland, 161).
