Aussie Jack Miller overcame a double long-lap penalty and a late charge by Johann Zarco to make it two wins in a row after a dramatic dry-wet-dry French MotoGP at Le Mans.

Miller and Ducati team-mate Bagnaia both received a double long-lap penalty for speeding in pit lane during their bike swaps. The Australian simply had too much pace as he surged back to retake the lead from hometown hero Fabio Quartararo with 16 laps to go.

Despite drying conditions towards the end of the race, Miller stayed out on the wets and managed to hold off the charge of Zarco to claim another 25 championship points.

False dawn for Marquez

Earlier in the race, former world champion Marc Marquez took the lead of a MotoGP race for the first time since Valencia 2019 by passing Quartararo during their bike swaps. The Frenchman had pulled into team-mate Vinales’ pit area, but the Marquez’s reign lasted just a few laps before he came off in a frightening highside at the final corners.

Reigning world champion Joan Mir and his Suzuki team had a nightmare day. Mir fell off just before swapping bikes and teammate Alex Rins just after, he was able to continue briefly, before crashing for a second time.

Brad Binder registered a points finish after starting 21st, finishing 13th when all was said and done.
