Championship points leader Pecco Bagnaia (Ducati) completed a perfect weekend by winning the full GP race earlier today in Austria after also winning yesterday’s Sprint race. Finishing second in both races was KTM’s Brad Binder. Third place in the Sprint race went to Jorge Martin (Ducati), while Marco Bezzecchi (Ducati), after taking pole in qualifying with a new lap record, finished third in the main event earlier today.
In today’s full GP, Binder chased Bagnaia from the first corner of the first lap, but was ultimately unable to hold the winner’s pace and fell off to finish several seconds behind.
Bagnaia’s form looks impeccable at this point, and he has built a sizable points lead in the championship. He now has a 62 point cushion over Martin in second. The riders next race at Catalunya on the weekend beginning September 1.
