Thai MotoGP race postponed indefinitely on coronavirus fears

MotoGP Virtual Race 4 was the best show so far, as a battle between the Márquez brothers went down to the final corner at Misano World Circut Marco Simoncelli. Alex came out on top, taking his second win of the year, while Marc settled for P2 after swinging wide before the dash to the line. It is Marc’s first podium of the season. Taking advantage of a last-lap crash by polesitter Fabio Quartararo, hometown here Valentino Rossi grabbed the final podium spot.

Going into Virtual Race 4, Alex Márquez was tied with Maverick Viñales and Pecco Bagnaia for first place in the standings. Each rider has a win, runner-up, and P3 finish. However, the expected showdown did not materialize, as Viñales and Bagnaia were involved in opening lap incidents from which they never recovered. Viñales ended up in P6, just ahead of Bagnaia.

Fabio Quartararo, who was sitting on pole yet again, grabbed the holeshot and got clear of the field. The Márquez brothers were keeping Quartararo honest until an unforced error late in the race put Quartararo on the ground, allowing Alex and Marc by.
