The HRC team comes to Le Mans on a high, with both riders having reached the podium in the last two races, with a win apiece. In France, Marc arrives just 4 points behind leader Rossi, Dani trails by 10 points. Marquez is well aware of this. The factory Honda team was also in France for the Michelin test ten days ago, but due to the bad weather they chose not to ride. With so few points separating the top 4 riders, every win is worth gold.
But is a repeat on the cards? Despite admitting FP1 will give a better idea of his pace, The Doctor is hopeful he can make it five podiums from the past six in France. So, I think, for sure, the result in Jerez was very important. We can give our best and be, at least, on the podium. We need to try to be on the front row as I think in Jerez that was really important because the other two Yamahas were really fast on Saturday. Also, the riding style with the bike. For me it was good, to get even more confidence heading to Le Mans with a lot of motivation.
What had been a three-way race for honours between the two factory Yamaha riders and the Tech 3 bike of Johann Zarco had boiled down to a straight fight between Vinales and Rossi in the closing stages. It was home hero Zarco, running soft tyres front and rear, that led the opening stages after a great start from third on the grid, with Vinales slotting into second place ahead of Rossi. But Zarco was unable to pull away from the factory Yamahas, both running medium tyres all round, and on lap 7 the Frenchman was passed by Vinales at the Dunlop chicane. From there, Vinales maintained a small advantage over Zarco and Rossi, with the satellite rider holding on to second until Rossi made his move at the Dunlop chicane on the 23rd lap of The Italian's charge continued as he reeled in Vinales and passed him at the same location three laps later. It seemed Rossi had done enough to seal his first MotoGP win of the season, especially as Vinales cut the track trying to keep up with the year-old on the penultimate tour.
Maverick Vinales has won a thrilling French MotoGP at Le Mans after team-mate and leader Valentino Rossi ran wide on the last lap, then fell while trying to close back in on the Spaniard.

However, the three current and former world title holders are not the only ones aiming to finish top of the pile. That first Grand Prix of set the tone for the season and a new record: the smallest-ever margin between the race winner Dovizioso and the lowest finisher to be awarded a point Johann Zarco. Just The premier category had never seen such a finish! After two seasons in Moto3 and two more in Moto2, the year-old from Nice has now been promoted to the premier league of motorcycling.
In what was the most heartbreaking sight for MotoGP fans in a long time, Valentino Rossi crashed on the final lap of the French Grand Prix at Le Mans, as teammate Maverick Vinales went on to secure his third win of the season. Vinales was joined by Johann Zarco of Tech 3 Yamaha claiming his maiden podium finish, after Rossi's crash promoted him to second place. Honda 's Dani Pedrosa clenched a podium this season finishing third. The French rider was quick to take lead at Turn 2 with a clean move taking Vinales. Riding on soft tyres at the front and rear, Zarco lead the race in the initial laps before the Yamaha riders started to build the pressure. The race turned into a three way battle but not for long as Vinales reclaimed the lead on Lap 7. Meanwhile, Zarco was fending off pressure from Rossi, but finally gave in on Lap 23 with Italian now in P2.
