MotoGP Austria 2019: Marc Marquez pole position video, Andrea Dovizioso

Published

on

Marc Marquez and records go hand-in-hand. The way he’s going, he’ll own all of them whenever he hangs up the helmet.

On Saturday, the championship leader surpassed the great Mick Doohan with his 59th premier class pole position at the Red Bull Ring. Marquez is only 26, making it all the more extraordinary should he wrap up premier class title No. 6 this season.

However, for all of the Spaniard’s dominance in the top flight, one blip on his CV is a win in Austria. Saturday’s result marked his third straight pole at the Red Bull Ring, but he has been pipped to victory on both previous occasions.

Mark Skaife has opened up on the shock announcement of the Holden brand’s retirement, with the Supercars legend admitting discussing his “sadness” over the news.

General Motors dropped a bombshell on the motoring industry on Monday by announcing they were “retiring” the iconic Australian brand by 2021 in the wake of falling domestic sales for Holden vehicles.

Critically, the announcement has plunged Holden’s Supercars future in doubt, despite a contract extension between the brand and the Red Bull Holden Racing Team being announced in July last year.

Denny Hamlin won his second straight Daytona 500 and third overall, beating Ryan Blaney in an overtime photo finish marred by a terrifying crash that sent Ryan Newman to hospital.

Newman had surged into the lead on the final lap when Blaney’s bumper caught the back of his Ford and sent Newman hard right into the wall.

His car flipped, rolled, was hit on the driver’s side by another car, and finally skidded across the finish line engulfed in flames.

It took several minutes for his car to be rolled back onto its wheels. He was placed in a waiting ambulance and taken directly to a hospital. Drivers were stricken with concern, including a rattled Corey LaJoie, the driver who hit Newman’s car as it was flipping.
