Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso took a second-place finish in the Aragon Grand Prix after a thrilling battle with the eventual race winner Marc Marquez.

Powering away well from the front row, the Italian rider emerged from the first-corner melee in the lead and he stayed there until lap 13, always followed closely by his Honda rival, who then passed him on the next lap. After grabbing back the lead on lap 16, Andrea tried his best to defend himself from Marquez but he was eventually passed by the Spanish rider three laps from the end and he crossed the line just 0.648s behind the winner.

“The race went very well, considering the fact that we usually struggle quite a lot at Aragon but instead this time we fought for the win right until the final lap. As a result, we must be happy because this is a further demonstration of the improvements that we are making. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to fight against Marquez until the very end, because there were some corners where I was going strongly but in other parts of the circuit I was slower so I didn’t have many cards to play. I had hoped he was going to be in trouble in the last few laps but instead at that moment he was faster than me and this made all the difference”, Dovizioso commented.
