Aleix Espargaro wins British GP

Aprilia rider Aleix Espargaro claimed victory in the British Grand Prix, which was the ninth in this year's Moto GP championships, and also the first race after the summer breaks. "Silverstone" marked Espargaro's second victory of his career, his first since last year's race in Argentina, as well as Aprilia's second triumph.

On dry tyres and in the rain, the Spaniard broke the current champion's lap record and won by two tenths of a second. Brad Binder, who rides for KTM, joined the two of them on the podium, and he finished two and a half tenths back of the Ducati rider.

Bagnaia and Espargaro: Conditions and its impact

During the race, Bagnaia was leading for most of the race, but Espargaro showed up when the conditions changed, and he took over the lead for the rest of the race. A battle was going on between the defending champion and VR46 team driver Marco Bezzecchi in the early stages of the race, when Beceki made a mistake and had to go off the track on the seventh lap.

Suddenly, Espargaro awoke, fought Binder and Maverick Vinalles, and when the rain started falling, they caught up with Bagnaia together. From three laps before the end, the eldest competitor of the current championd was just a few laps behind the Italian, but he attacked the Italian in the last lap, and then prevented the Italian from retaliating.

There was a great fight behind the two of them, in which Binder took home the podium for his team by just seven hundredths of a second over Miguel Oliveira of the RNF team. As a result, Vinalles fell behind the Portuguese by a little more than a second and a half, and was six seconds better than Jorge Martin on the Pramac Ducati at the end of the race.

Martin managed to break through brilliantly after he made a mistake at the start and fell to the bottom of the pack. The Austrian Grand Prix, which will take place at the "Red Bull Ring" on August 20, will be the next race in the Moto GP championship.

We are looking forward to the race and hope that it will bring back the excitement and adrenaline that we want to experience again.
