Rins snatches British GP win from Marquez at final corner

Suzuki’s Alex Rins passed MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez at the final corner to win a thrilling British Grand Prix.After trying a move around the outside of Woodcote corner on the penultimate lap, Rins then lunged through on the inside to edge fellow Spaniard Marquez to the checkered flag by 0.013 seconds.It was Suzuki’s second win in three attempts, following Maverick Vinales’s victory at Silverstone three years ago.The race was marred by a horrific crash involving Andrea Dovizioso and Fabio Quartararo in the opening lap.MotoGP rookie Quartararo crashed out on the exit of the first corner, with the luckless Dovizioso powerless to avoid the Frenchman’s Petronas Yamaha bike.Both riders were initially cleared of injury but Ducati’s Dovizioso was later transported to hospital after he had briefly lost consciousness in the incident.With Italian Dovizioso crashing out, Marquez extended his lead in the championship to 78 points after 12 of 19 races.
