The fight for the 2017 MotoGP championship remains alive after Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati) took victory earlier today on a wet track at Sepang. Dovizioso passed teammate Jorge Lorenzo with a few laps remaining, resulting in a sweep of the top two spots by Ducati. Early race leader Johann Zarco (Yamaha) finished third.
Points leader Marc Marquez (Honda) settled for fourth position today rather than risk a crash. This means that Marquez will enter the final round at Valencia with a nearly insurmountable 21 point lead over Dovizioso. The Valencia round is two weeks away.
