Catalunya MotoGP, Barcelona – Race Results
Rookie Aleix Espargaro won the 2023 Catalunya MotoGP, leading Aprilia to their first-ever one-two finish with teammate Viñales in second place. The race had to be restarted due to a first-turn pile-up and a bad accident involving Bagnaia, who suffered leg injuries. Despite a worn front tire, Espargaro made a move on Viñales with six laps to go and secured the victory. Jorge Martin finished third on the podium. Only Bagnaia and Bastianini couldn’t make the restart, and all other riders resumed from their original grid positions. The next race is the San Marino MotoGP at Misano.
