The Red Bull Ring looked, on paper, like it would be a three-way scrap for the win – but no. As the final few laps dawned it had boiled down to another classic showdown between the current riders to have won the Championship since 2010. Marquez was on the limit, Lorenzo was on the limit, and it was another one for the history books – much like the Marquez vs Dovi battle of 2017. But this time the reigning Champion couldn’t make a final move happen, and Lorenzo was uncontested – a tenth ahead over the line.
