Marc Marquez with his Honda wins the Emilia Romagna GP and the French Fabio Quartararo is the 2021 MotoGp World Champion despite finishing in fourth place. An intense race that saw Pecco Bagnaia’s Ducati lead the race and approach Quartararo in the standings before exiting the curve with four laps to go, crashing and retiring, giving the title to the transalpine who, with two GPs left in the racing season, has a advantage of 52 points over Bagnaia. Second place for Pol Espargaró and third on the podium Enea Bastianini, while Luca Marini finished in ninth position ahead of his brother Valentino Rossi, tenth in his last race in Italy.
Quartararo burst into tears before starting to dance with the all-gold helmet of the world number one.
“It was a great race, the most important race of the year for me – said Marc Marquez – I’m growing up, it’s special and gives me a lot of confidence for the next two races and for the next season. I’m returning to my best, but today is Fabio Quartararo’s day, congratulations to him and the Yamaha team, we will try to put him in difficulty next year “.
