I think Quartararo maybe finished the tyre,” said Dovizioso. “I was pushing so hard, a bit over the limit, because I really wanted second.”advertisementMarquez has an unbeatable 350 points to Dovizioso’s 231, with three races remaining in Australia, Malaysia and on home soil in Valencia.Honda have 356 points to Ducati’s 270.Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales was fourth with Britain’s Cal Cruchlow seizing fifth at the line for LCR Honda from Quartararo’s team mate Franco Morbidelli.Yamaha’s Italian great Valentino Rossi crashed four laps from the end while in 11th place, and Marquez’s triple world champion team mate Jorge Lorenzo finished only 17th and 40 seconds behind the winner.Also Read | PKL 2019: Bengal Warriors crowned champions after beating Dabang Delhi in finalAlso see:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
