The Portuguese rider surprises in Thailand by beating the main favorites, including Bagnaia, who is fueling the battle for the championship
The rain did not want to miss the titanic battle for the championship in the premier class. In a wet race, Portuguese Miguel Oliveira provided the surprise in Thailand, taking the win, the second of the season, as the track comes to an end. The Portuguese defeated the big favorites including Pecco Bagnaia who finished in third place and intensified the battle for the title, leaving the Italian just two units behind the leader.
Second place went to Jack Miller, who crossed the finish line ahead of his Ducati teammate. The Australian driver climbed the podium for the seventh time this season and achieved his best figure in one season in the premier class.
The leader of the category, Fabio Quartararo, was one of the main victims after not scoring. The Frenchman sees yet again how they are closing the gap and wasting the big earnings he made at the start of the season. Nor did it go to the third in discord, Aleix Espargaró who failed to take the opportunity to approach first place, remaining 20 units behind the Frenchman.
Things weren’t going too bad for Marc Márquez, who finished fifth in his third race after overcoming another injury. Little by little, the man from Lleida is recovering his sensations and next year he will try to take part in the battle for the championship, which is more lively than ever when there are only three tests left to finish.
