2017 Moto2 Dutch Grand Prix report and results
A weekend of fanfare for Franco Morbidelli in Assen: the Italian wins the Moto2 Dutch Grand Prix just after being confirmed in MotoGP in his Marc VDS team for the next two seasons (with option for 2010) !
After the superb MotoGP race won by Valentino Rossi, the start of Moto2 was given under a still gray sky but on a dry track. Very quickly, several drivers broke away in the lead, exchanging leadership as the laps took place: Morbidelli, Oliveira, Nakagami, Lüthi, Pasini then Nakagami took the lead..

Then serious things were played out between Lüthi, who took the lead four laps before the end, and the leader of the championship Franco Morbidelli, who climbs in MotoGP in 2018 with Marc VDS. With two laps to go, the Italian overtook Lüthi, unable to reply, and headed without looking back to his fifth victory of the 2017 season. !

Tom Lüthi passes under the checkered flag in front of Mattia Pasini, very incisive throughout the race. Sadly, the Italian will be downgraded for cutting through the loophole in the final chicane, following an inside pass by Nakagami. His third place goes to the Japanese, which does not fail to exasperate the n ° 54, finally 4th…
The results of the championship
In the championship, Franco Morbidelli takes advantage of his victory to increase his lead over runner-up Tom Lüthi to 12 points, who shines with his consistency at the forefront: if the Swiss has not yet won this season, he has seven podiums in eight races and no blank results. Enough to continue to put pressure on Morbidelli, faster but victim of a crash in Jerez (Spain).
Alex Marquez, Morbidelli’s teammate, occupies third place in the provisional with 113 pts against 148 for the leader. Marc Marquez’s little brother, sixth in Assen, has also been confirmed for an additional season in Moto2 in his Marc VDS team. While waiting to go up, like Morbidelli, in MotoGP for the 2019 season ?
Fabio Quartararo signs in the Netherlands an interesting 9th place 11 seconds behind the winner, which allows him to consolidate his 15th place in the provisional classification. However, this result slightly leaves "El Diablo" unsatisfied….
"I thought I would do a little better, but I lost time by going out a little wide a few times and I suffered a little in the forearms", confides the Nice, despite everything happy to register a Top 10 on his record before moving to mid-season in the 9th race scheduled for next week in Germany.
