Live Commentary
Summary: Andrea Dovizioso's triumph on home soil propels him to second in the championship and proves that the Ducati can be a winner this season as well. Something for Jorge Lorenzo to contemplate over.

It may have been the circuit that could have helped the Ducati, considering Danilo Petrucci's podium, but it could have also been the stiffer tyres introduced this weekend.

Will Ducati be a contender? The wait to answer that won't be too long. Join us again next week for the Grand Prix of Catalunya.
Lap 23: Last lap. Dovi with a substantial gap over Vinales. But there must be some pressure. Crutchlow furious with Pedrosa in the gravel. What happened there? ANDREA DOVIZIOSO WINS! Petrucci sandwiches Vinales for the podium slot. Joy for Ducati, indeed. Replays show Pedrosa lost the front at a corner and slid into Crutchlow as the Repsol Honda rider tried to make a move.
Lap 22: Vinales is closing in on the lead, cutting the gap by just over three-tenths.
Lap 21: Dovi leads by just over a second as he starts a new lap. This will be his third career victory...
Lap 20: Vinales slipsteams past Petrucci and keeps it tight as he hugs the inside of Turn 1 keeping that Ducati behind. Lorenzo's downfall has been held steady in P8.
Lap 19: The myriad yellow flags sit still in the stands in the hands of the Rossi fans. Dovi seems to have this in the bag as Vinales hounds Petrucci.
Lap 18: Rossi breaking away from the lead battle. Podium seemingly unlikely for the Italian, who (remember) had injured himself ahead of the weekend in a motocross accident. Vinales tries to brake late at Turn 1, closes in on Petrucci but runs wide. A reprieve for the No. 9 rider.
Lap 17: Dovi leading away by a good margin now. Meanwhile, Bautista continues to pound ahead of Marquez. Petrucci closing in on Dovi now. Reasons for the Ducati camp to get concerned...
Lap 16: Vinales tried to fight back on the main straight not accounting for the grunt of the Ducati. Petrucci holds second. Replays show Vinales went wide at Turn 15 allowing Petrucci through.
Lap 15: Dovi now leads by nearly half a second, but this is far from over. The leading quartet has it close. Petrucci on the charge as he takes Vinales in the final sector.
Lap 14: Dovi gives the fans at Mugello something to smile about as he powers through for the lead, screaming past the Yamaha. Petrucci dives past Rossi on the inside to take P3. In one lap, Yamaha has takes two steps back!
Lap 13: A Spaniard on a Japanese bike leads three Italians. Not the result the partisan crowd wants here.
Lap 12: Approaching the halfway mark now. The top 3 seem to be biding their time. The top four are all in a shot for victory, including Petrucci.
Lap 11: Vinales now seemingly pulling away from Dovizioso. Marquez now hounding Bautista for P4. Looks inevitable... Zarco through on Lorenzo for P7, the Spaniard's Ducati going backwards.
Lap 10: Interesting that Vinales has kept ahead of the rocket that is Ducati on the main straight for several laps now.
Lap 9: Vinales leads by a tenth. Petrucci picks up his pace, the fastest so far, to close in on Rossi. Marquez making sure he doesn't let Lorenzo by for fifth. Dovi has been battling food poisoning today, so a great effort from the Italian already!
Lap 8: Dovi now closing in on Vinales. Are we looking at a Ducati win? Gigi Dall'Igna looks confident with his head resting back on his chair in the garage. No sign of duress there.
Lap 7: But Dovi keeps his distance and no positions change in the top 3. Lorenzo runs very wide at San Donato and drops to P6. He's trying hard to impress the Ducati supporters.
Lap 6: Dovi powers through on Rossi and takes P2 at San Donato. Vinales has a bit of a breathing space now. The Ducati obviously holding up the Yamaha of Valentino through the corners. Rossi's best bet to slipstream on the start-finish straight...
Lap 5: Rossi takes his second back from the Ducati at San Donato. Aleix Esparago goes through the pit lane to serve his penalty for a jump start. Petrucci is now up to 4th, ahead of Lorenzo.
Lap 4: Vinales now slipsteams through into the lead while Rossi fends off the charging Ducatis of the bucking Lorezno and Dovi. Rossi takes the lead back but Maverick hits back a few corners later. The duo being hunted by Dovi... Dovi goes through to second making a clean move through the final sector.
Lap 3: Lorenzo continues to lead and Dovizioso joins in the fun too. Lorenzo goes wide at Scarperia and Rossi and Vinales step through. ROSSI LEADS.
Lap 2: Slicing and dicing under the slipstream as the field crosses the line to finish lap 1. Vinales picks up on Rossi and closes the gap but it's Lorenzo who powers through the Yamaha duo with ease! Lorenzo brakes late and goes wide at San Donato but the Ducati is nimble enough to take it back through the turns.
Lap 1: The lights go out and it's ROSSI who takes the holeshot for his home race! It's been a clean start for everyone, no drop outs.
Preview: Ciao! Welcome to the Italian Grand Prix, where a sea of yellow-clad fans would love to see home hero Valentino Rossi take top honours. Only that Rossi has been nursing an injury running up to the weekend and that he has championship leader Maverick Vinales in pole position to complicate matters for the crowd favourite. It gets even more challenging as Ducati will be aiming to step up on to the podium with 3 factory bikes starting in the top-7. The script could take another turn with the Honda riders mixing it up from the second row. Mugello will be reeling out another intense MotoGP race. Who will win? Answers to line up at 1200 GMT.
