Dovi takes championship lead
Andrea Dovizioso’s 2017 gets better and better as he takes his fourth win of the season under the baking heat at Silverstone to take the lead in the championship. Behind him finished Maverick Vinales and Valentino Rossi, while former championship leader Marc Marquez suffered a mechanical problem. As always, Suzi Perry, Colin Edwards, Neil Hodgson, Keith Huewen, Julian Ryder and Gavin Emmett were at the heart of the action in pit lane to grab all the reaction to a brilliant home Grand Prix. We’ll be back in two weeks’ time from San Marino.

Marc Marquez came out on top at Phillip Island following a stunning race which saw the top seven over-take one another 73 times and separated by just +5.619 seconds - the closest ever gap in the MotoGP era. Gavin Emmett, Keith Huewen and Julian Ryder look back on that incredible race and ponder whether Andrea Dovizioso can keep the title challenge going on to the last round at Valencia.
