Marc Marquez successfully locked the first podium at the 2019 Australian GP race on Sunday (10/27) afternoon WIB. This is the 11th victory achieved by the racer nicknamed The Baby Alien this season.
Since the start lights are on, Valentino Rossi directly accelerates Yamaha M1 motor speed. He managed to control his position and lead the race. While Danilo Petrucci and Fabio Quartararo completed the series 17 race faster after leaving the track.
The incident began when Petrucci who tried to improve his position lost balance when conquering the second corner. The Ducati manufacturer racer was knocked out of the motorcycle and his body hit the motorbike driven by Quartararo.
On the next lap, position changes continue to occur. The interesting drama was seen when Vinales overtook two riders in front of him namely Marquez and Crutchlow to lead the race.
For the remaining 15 laps, Marquez continued to follow Vinales’ speed. The fight between the two racers is getting more interesting in the remaining five laps, especially when the rain starts to flush the Phillip Island Circuit.
While in each paddock, several crew were busy to prepare a replacement motorcycle that had been wrapped with wet tires. But both of them chose not to stop by the garage.
On the last lap, Marquez successfully took over the race. Damn, when Vinales tried to catch up to Alien Baby’s motorbike speed, he just fell.
Marquez finally emerged as the winner followed by Cal Crutchlow. The third position is occupied by Jack Miller.
