Suzuki rider Alex Rins wins the dramatic British Grand Prix GP which saw MotoGP champion Marc Marquez split just 0.013 with him in the finish line.

The sensational victory of Rins at the Silverstone Circuit gave Suzuki its second win of the season, but Honda keeper Marquez continued to solidify his title lead with 78 points ahead of his closest challenger, Andrea Dovizioso of Ducati.

Dovizioso did not finish the race after being involved in a horrific crash in the first round with PETRONAS Yamaha SRT youngster Fabio Quartararo and Yamaha rider Maverick Vinales completing the podium.

“Hard to believe. I have no words to explain it. VAMOS! (Come on)”, Rins said of his victory in the final lap of the race.

“I stay calm. The last bend for me was unbelievable. I was faster than that and we ended up winning. ”

Marquez admitted he was disappointed with the loss to the Rins but was relieved of his hopes of surviving a world title.

“Of course I’m happy with the title, about the race, no. To be killed on a straight path is not a pleasant feeling. ”

The runner-up saw Marquez now collect 250 points in seven rounds of racing with his closest challenger, Dovizioso remaining 172 points.

Rins then climbed to third with 149, four points ahead of another Ducati rider Danilo Petrucci who finished seventh.

Vinales teammate Valentino Rossi, who started the race in second place, finished fourth.

The race was intense but the tragic incidents involving Quartararo and Dovizioso clearly stole the spotlight.

After Quartararo lost control and collapsed, Dovizioso failed to evacuate, which saw his machine crash into the barrier and burn. Both riders suffered no serious injuries but Dovizioso was rushed to the hospital due to a collision.

Meanwhile, national champion Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah finished 13th with Red Bull KTM Tech 3.
