Martin wins at Thai MotoGP

   Oct 30,2023

Merely a week after narrowly missing out on a podium finish in Australia, Jorge Martin clinched a hard-fought victory at the 2023 Thai Grand Prix. Brad Binder of Red Bull KTM initially secured the second position on the track, but he exceeded the lap limit, forcing him to fall to third place. This led to the promotion of reigning world champion Francesco Bagnaia, representing the Factory Ducati team, to the second position.


With just a thirteen-point gap, the title race between Martin and Bagnaia remains incredibly close, as Martin emerged victorious in both the Sprint and main races during the weekend.

Throughout the Thai Grand Prix, Martin was at the lead, yet Binder managed to pull off a few overtaking moves, albeit briefly. His attempts to maintain those positions were unsuccessful. Bagnaia, on the other hand, had a challenging start and found himself in eighth place at one stage during the race. However, he skillfully navigated through the pack, eventually advancing to fourth place, trailing just behind Alex Marquez. The Gresini Ducati rider's hopes took a hit when he crashed out of the race.

Fabio Quartararo, the Factory Yamaha rider who initially qualified in tenth position, expressed confidence in his bike's performance throughout the weekend. This assurance translated to success on the race track, where he secured a sixth-place finish in the main race. Meanwhile, Marc Marquez, representing Repsol Honda and set to join Gresini Ducati next season, crossed the finish line in seventh place. Marquez and Quartararo engaged in a fierce battle for a significant portion of the race. It was reminiscent of their 2019 duel at the same circuit when Marquez clinched his eighth world title while contending with Fabio.

As we look at the 2023 MotoGP world championship standings, Jorge Martin, despite securing victories in both the Sprint and feature-length races, remains thirteen points behind the current championship leader, Francesco Bagnaia. Notably, Bagnaia's fellow VR46 Academy rider, Marco Bezzecchi, holds the third position in the overall standings.

The MotoGP action shifts to Malaysia in just two weeks, so stay tuned to this space for the most up-to-date developments and race highlights.
