2014 Brno MotoGP Test Times, Final: Marquez Fastest, Ahead Of Lorenzo And Pedrosa

Marc Marquez put in a late push in the afternoon to top the post-race test on Monday, the Repsol Honda rider dipping under Cal Crutchlow's pole record from 2013. Marquez deposed Jorge Lorenzo at the top of the timesheets, though Lorenzo closed down the Repsol Honda man's advantage.

Rain fell late in the session, stopping activity for a while, and looked like preventing Valentino Rossi from going out on the 2015 version of the YZR-M1, but the sun burned off the rain and dried the track enough for testing to resume for the final hour.

2014 Brno MotoGP Test Times At 1:30pm: Lorenzo Leads, Hondas Close Behind

Testing is underway at Brno, with the weather considerably better than it has been for the race weekend. Temperatures are higher, and clouds less frequent. Jorge Lorenzo leads the way as the riders shortly before the riders take a break for lunch, the Movistar Yamaha rider breaking into the 1'55 mark late in the morning.

First out of the gate this morning was Marc Marquez, eager to get to work on the grip problems which plagued him during yesterday's race, and saw him finish off the podium for the first time since 2012. Marquez is currently third fastst, just behind his teammate Dani Pedrosa, the man who won the race yesterday. Both Repsol Honda riders have a 2015 version of the Honda RC213V, and both have already put in laps on the bike. The bike is visually very similar to the 2014 machine.

Leon Camier was an early crasher, coming of just ten minutes after the session started. he was unhurt, but the bike needed significant repairs to be able to continue. Loris Capirossi has been out riding the Open Honda, and he will be testing the Forward Yamaha later today as well. Kenny Noyes is also testing the Avintia bike, as the American rider has strong ties with Kawasaki, who he races for in the Spanish championship. Noyes is taking his time to get up to speed, currently over three seconds behind regular Avintia rider Mike Di Meglio.

The factory-backed Ducati riders are absent, with a test scheduled for Andrea Dovizioso, Andrea Iannone and Cal Crutchlow at Misano at the beginning of next week.

2014 Brno MotoGP Race Result: About The Streak

Race report follows.

A poor start for Marc Marquez from pole position put him in sixth position halfway round the first lap. The Ducatis of Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso led Dani Pedrosa's Repsol Honda through the first few turns as Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi took care of title leader and world champion Marc Marquez.

On the second lap, Jorge Lorenzo, having passed Dani Pedrosa, forced his Yamaha past both of the Ducatis in one overtake to grab the race lead. Andrea Iannone, on a Pramac Ducati that he admitted was a factory bike, held off Dani Pedrosa's challenge until the fourth lap when Pedrosa took his place behind Lorenzo, setting the fastest lap on his way.

Marc Marquez passed Valentino Rossi for fourth place and got into a tough battle with Andrea Iannone for third place, with the pair bashing fairings on a couple of corners, swapping places four times until Marquez was able to vanquish his opponent and throw him back to Rossi for him to deal with. Rossi wasted no time passing Ianonne and returned to chasing Marquez.

On the sixth lap, Dani Pedrosa caught and passed Jorge Lorenzo for the lead and set about building a lead as the race settled into the consolidation phase. Twelve laps in, however, Valentino Rossi closed on Marc Marquez and started probing for a weakness, having a better pace than the Honda man. Over the next lap, the pair fought and the veteran passed the upstart champion and made it stick. Marquez kept on Rossi's tail, but he dropped back after missing a few apexes that suggested his tyres weren't up to the fight.

Seven laps remained, and apart from Dovizioso passing Iannone and being passed back a few laps later, the race looked settled, but on the last lap, Jorge Lorenzo, breaking from the tradition of copying the Honda men's tyre choice, choosing a softer tyre that he felt soaked up the bumps better, started closing in on Pedrosa.

It was not to be, however. The streak has ended and it was ended at the hands of Dani Pedrosa. Jorge Lorenzo took second place with Valentino Rossi in third. Marc Marquez took fourth place and his bike was immediately locked in the Repsol Honda garage away from prying eyes as Honda's engineers had to figure out what happened.

Dani Pedrosa is now thirteen points clear of Valentino Rossi in the title chase, and has reduced Marc Marquez's lead to a still impressive seventy seven points, while Marquez can relax in the knowledge that the media will no longer be troubling him with questions about the streak.

2014 Brno Moto2 Race Result: Consistency Is Key

Race report follows.

Tito Rabat took the lead from pole position at the first turn, followed by, after the usual jostling, Sam Lowes, passing the other front man on the medium tyre, Sandro Cortese. Mika Kallio, Rabat's Marc VDS teammate, carved his way past Cortese for third place. On the third lap, Kallio passed Lowes and set off to try to catch Rabat.

On the fifth lap, Sam Lowes, in a solid third position, lost the front on turn eight and ended his weekend, unhurt, and from there, positions were set, with Rabat extending his gap over Kallio and Kallio extending his gap over Cortese. Thomas Luthi lead Dominique Aegerter ahead of Maverick Vinales and Julian Simon, while further back Luis Salom broke the predictability with an entertainingly shakespearean display of despair after crashing.

Six laps from the end, rain flags came out and Tito Rabat waved to suggest ending the race, as if he knew that nothing else would change, but the race organisers put the flags away and forced us to endure an unchanging battle, livened only by Maverick Vinales closing the gap to Dominique Aegeter, but an overtake was not forthcoming as Luthi and Aegerter turned up the pace on their Swiss battle.

Tito Rabat headed a Marc VDS one-two, increasing his lead by another five points over second-placed Mika Kallio, now twelve points behind. Sandro Cortese claimed his maiden podium in third.

Rabat celebrated his win by giving a lift to a German in a chequered flag Morphsuit, dropping him off before he entered Parc Fermé.

2014 Brno Moto3 Race Result: Seventeen Bikes And Premature Exultation

Race Report follows.

As the lights went out, Isaac Vinales took to first place ahead of Alex Marquez and a charging Enea Bastianini, but Vinales was unable to keep with the leading pack and was relegated to the middle of the crowded track. John McPhee suffered another crash at the hands of Jorge Navarro and was quoted as saying "Navarro's an idiot. Simple as that," about his rival's actions on the second lap.

With dry weather throughout, and the wide, sweeping track, a seventeen bike charge covered by under two seconds was no surprise. Alex Marquez, Alexis Masbou, Alex Rins, Brad Minder and Enea Bastianini took turns at the front, but couldn't break away from the bikes behind.

The race was all seventeen riders at the front jockeying for position and, with three laps left, Jack Miller made his way through to the front from his comfortable seat in sixth place, trading places with Alex Marquez, Alex Rins and Enea Bastianini while Alexis Masbou and Danny Kent taking their places behind the fighting at the front.

With two laps to go, Danny Kent in fourth place had a little wobble, giving the front three a small gap to fight. As Jack Miller, Alex Marquez and Alex Rins crossed the line, Rins celebrated what he thought was a win as he slipped past the others to lead over the line. As he realised his mistake, he put his right hand back on the throttle and recovered for ninth.

On the last corner, five riders jousted, with Alexis Masbou block-passing Jack Miller for the lead, chopping a few km/h of momentum off the Australian, as the five charged to the line.

Alexis Masbou took his maiden victory, with Enea Bastianini sneaking through in second and Danny Kent timing his charge perfectly in third, pipping Alex Marquez to the podium. Jack Miller's fifth place behind Marquez reduced his title lead by two points.

2014 Brno Moto2 Qualifying Result: And A New Lap Record

Qualifying was dry, but cool, with 17º air temperature.

Tito Rabat on the Marc VDS bike deposed Thomas Luthi from pole position at the halfway mark and didn't look back, improving his own pole position time two more times until he set a new lap record of 2'01.911 at the chequered flag. Interwetten's Thomas Luthi kept himself in the mix throughout the session, ending it in second position, joined on the front row by Sandro Cortese on the Dynavold Intact GP bike.

Sam Lowes was on a potential pole-beating lap with the chequered flag out, but he met traffic and missed out on the front row by fifteen thousandths of a second on his Speed Up bike. NGM Forward Racing's Simone Corsi took fifth spot with Marc VDS's Mika Kallio settling for sixth after crashing gracefully on a fast lap after the flag was out.

The top ten riders were all under a second, but as close as it looks on paper, Tito Rabat managed his qualifying to perfection.

2014 Brno MotoGP Qualifying Result: Close Qualifying On A Dry Track

Qualifying was on a dry track.

In the first session, Yonny Hernandez on the Pramac Ducati opened the session with the quickest lap, but was deposed by Stefan Bradl's LCR Honda. Michele Pirro on the development Ducati threatened to steal second place, the last promotional place, from Hernandez, but was unable to close the quarter of a second needed to be elevated.

The second session, with all twelve riders taking part, including Valentino Rossi with a modified glove to accommodate his injured left little finger, proved to be close.

After one lap, Marc Marquez was quickest with a 1'56.760 with his Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa backing him up in second place. Aleix Espargaro on the NGM Forward bike was the quickest Yamaha third.

In the second run, Marc Marquez was closely followed by Andrea Iannone, who acknowleged the assistance he got from following Marquez, on the softer tyre, and as Marquez set the fastest lap, it was beaten hundredths later by Iannone. Marquez, on the subsequent lap, took the top spot back with a 1'55.585, as the Pramac Ducati couldn't keep up with the increased pace.

Andrea Dovizioso's Factory Ducati beat Iannone's Pramac Ducati for second place, without using a tow, putting two Ducatis on the front row, with Bradley Smith's Tech 3 Monster Yamaha in fourth place, ahead of Dani Pedrosa's Honda and both Movistar Yamahas. Jorge Lorenzo pulled in on one bike and chose to use his other bike for the second run, but neither put him on the front row.
