MotoGp - Marquez starts his 2018 campaign with a brilliant podium in Qatar, Pedrosa fights hard but has to settle for 7th

As night fell in #Qatar, #marcmarquez climbed to the second step of the podium at the #Losail International Circuit after fighting for victory all the way until the last corner.

Andrea Dovizioso just edged Marc out at the chequered flag by a mere 0.027” but the reigning World Champion will fly back to Europe tomorrow knowing that he’s shown great pace and scored a brilliant result at a track that is notoriously tough for him and the Repsol Honda Team.

A group of seven riders, split by just over one second, fought for a podium position for almost the entire race. #danipedrosa was among that group, although a poor feeling with the rear tyre forced him to settle for seventh.
