MotoGP Silverstone - Race Results

Race results from the 2014 British MotoGP at Silverstone, round 12 of 18.
Marc Marquez has won his eleventh race of the season after beating Jorge Lorenzo in a close battle at the British MotoGP.

Lorenzo led most of the race, with Marquez sticking in his wheel tracks as they pulled away from the field.

Marquez made his first move for the lead with seven laps to go, but was re-passed by Lorenzo after running wide at the same turn with five laps remaining.

Marquez tried again through the Village and Loop corners with three laps to go. Marquez's initially move was rebuffed by Lorenzo, who held on around the outside, but Lorenzo was made to sit up when Marquez dived inside again at the slow Loop turn.

The pair shook hands on the slow down lap.

Almost eight-seconds behind them, Valentino Rossi got the better of Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso after a race long fight for third.

Bradley Smith made a pit stop after earlier fighting for sixth...

What race !!! Almost got fired from work because I could not stop watching from my phone! Marc is so brilliant ... what a battle with Lorenzo ... Well done Rossi !!! Did not give it up to Danny and Andrea .... Ducati's so nice to see them fighting in front ... I really hope that they will be a real challenge for the championship title .... in the future ... 2015 ... 216 ? nice imprvement !!! Marquez on lap 14 ( 6 to the end ) ...on the brakes .... Only he can do that now ... a few years ago it would have ended differently ... big big high side !!! can rossi run with lor99 and mm93 ??? in the front in that pace ? its looks like he allways missing a little ... something .... It will be very hard for him to beat them ....nowdays. but its nice to see him on the podium every race !

@ SkyWilk You are a senseless fool... Can't you see Ducati improving... Dovi within 9 seconds from Marc is incredible... Never mind you wanted to bash him and you did that in your stupid way...
