Jorge Martin wins the Sprint Race of the Valencia Grand Prix and gives himself one last chance to win the World title in tomorrow’s race. The Spaniard was extraordinary aboard his Ducati Pramac, immediately capable of dictating a great pace and recovering positions after a subpar qualifying (he started sixth). His rival Francesco Bagnaia, on the other hand, started from second place on the grid and only had to settle for fifth place: for the blue Ducati Lenovo rider there are now only 14 points to defend in the very last kilometers of the season, with the aim of repeating the title achieved last year. On the podium together with Martin are Brad Binder, second with the KTM, and Marc Marquez third with the Honda.
