Marc Marquez wins Moto2 last lap thriller at Estoril

Today’s Moto2 race at Estoril was once again what fans have come to expect from the middle class, a thrilling paint swapping final last lap rush to the finish line.
Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro with Thomas Luthi, Johann Zarco and Scott Redding all getting in the fray battling it out, with the Interwetten Swiss rider leading for eighteen of the 26 lap race only to find himself slightly fading as Marquez took the lead with Espargaro hot on his tail, until the final lap when the Pons rider began his attack.

The Pons rider exchanged the lead with Marquez for three consecutive times along the Portughuese circuit, but at the Gancho turn he went in hot and wide letting Marquez slip through and cruise to his second victory of the season.

Luthi had to settle for third place, while Moto2 rookie Johann gave another convincing race now coming to grips with his MotoBi to take fourth.
Andrea Iannone took fifth after he tried to catch the the front runners until he ran wide which relegated him back and trying again to play catch up.

Alex de Angelis in his 200th GP start took sixth and finally finding some front end feeling.
Former Moto2 champion Toni Elias slotted his Suter into 7th, followed by Julian Simon and Mika Kallio and Bradley Smith , who closed out the top ten.
