Jorge Lorenzo wins the Italian MotoGP after a photo-finish with Marc Marquez, the pair swapping places several times on the final lap before Lorenzo slipstreamed past the Honda rider on the run to the finish line.

Andrea Iannone claimed third for Ducati after fighting back from a bad start, setting a new all-time top speed record in the process. Fellow home hero Valentino Rossi was shadowing Lorenzo for the lead, until a massive engine failure.

Tito Rabat missed the race after fracturing his collarbone on Saturday, while Ducati test rider Michele Pirro was competing as a wild-card...

Poor performance of Lorenzo in Parc Ferme, making gestures signing a note towards Rossi. I really wonder if Lorenzo know why people are booing him, I guess not otherwise he wouldn't made the gesture. Another drought for Ducati and that on a track where Ducati does a lot of testing.

12 persons who are disagreeing me? Come on, there should be more Lorenzo fans I hope LMAO
