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.

Relive the magnificent moment – last lap, last corner at Silverstone – when Rins passed Marquez to win the GoPro British Grand Prix

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?
