Marc Marquez becomes the 2017 MotoGP World Champion for Honda Racing Corporation (HRC). This is his 4th World Title in MotoGP after taking the crown in 2013, 2014 & 2016. The race was very intensifying after a wild crash saving moment by Marquez & his rival crashing out of the race.
His championship rival Andrea Dovizioso crashed out of the race which helped Marquez to cruise the final few laps of the race. Ducati did issue many messages to Lorenzo to let Dovi pass him vai pit board & on board message but Lorenzo didn’t do any such things to help Dovi.
