Silverstone '19: fourth-closest race in history

Rins and Marquez were the stars in the joint-fourth tightest premier class finish

It was once again a British Grand Prix to remember. Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) picked up his second-ever MotoGP™ win to steal victory from Marc Marquez’ (Repsol Honda Team) grasp on the exit of the famous Woodcote corner to win by just 0.013 seconds.

FREE: Last lap, last corner AGAIN!

And in doing so, the 2019 GoPro British Grand Prix saw history created. Rins’ advantage over Marquez was the fourth-closest in premier class history, equal with Valentino Rossi’s win over Max Biaggi at Phillip Island 2001. The only races to have finished with smaller winning margins?

- Barry Sheene vs Giacomo Agostini, Assen, 1975 – 0.000
- Alex Criville vs Mick Doohan, Brno, 1996 – 0.002
- Tony Elias vs Valentino Rossi, Estoril, 2006 – 0.002

Silverstone delivered a stunner again. More of the same next year?
