Live Commentary
Summary: A scintillating race comes to an end as Dovizioso keeps his cool and wins despite an aggressive assault of moves from Ducati teammate Jorge Lorenzo. Considering where the championship stands and the fierce fight that broke out, Marquez will be content with P3.

Join us again next weekend for the Austria Grand Prix for more of this.
Lap 21: Marc takes P2. Lorenzo hits back and they touch, but the Ducati gets ahead. This is playing into Dovi's hands. ANDREA DOVIZIOSO WINS as Lorenzo is unable to recover from his battle with Marquez, who completes the podium.
Lap 20: It's now between the leading trio. Lorenzo with another attempt, takes the lead but goes wide once again handing it back to Dovi. Marquez taking it all in. All those attempts have allowed Marc to close in and he takes a shot for P2 but Jorge holds on.
Lap 19: Lorenzo goes past Marquez at Turn 13, and pushes on to the next corner to take the lead! But Jorge goes wide almost immediately and Dovi gets back in the front. Lorenzo tries again a few corners later but it's almost a repeat as Dovi keeps his head cool and retakes the lead.
Lap 18: Marquez now hurrying Dovi as Lorenzo ups his charge.
Lap 17: Lorenzo takes 3rd from Crutchlow at Turn 13.
Lap 16: Biding their time as another lap winds down.
Lap 15: What's become clear is that the choice of hard tyres, both front and rear, are the way to go.
Lap 14: Marquez and Crutchlow are the only riders who look strong at the font, both riding Hondas.
Lap 13: Rossi loses another position, this time to Lorenzo.
Lap 12: Bradl has been taken to the medical centre for a check up following his crash. Standard procedure.
Lap 11: Remember, Rossi is on the medium front, those around him are on the hard. That could be proving to be a little difficult for the Yamaha. Cal now all over the back of Rossi. Crutchlow takes P3, on the inside of Turn 12.
Lap 10: Dovi cruises past Rossi for the lead at Turn 1. That also allows Marc to move up to P2, the Yamaha losing two places in a few corners.
Lap 9: Honda now getting in the game. Crutchlow is quicker than Lorenzo but can't get past, yet. Marquez now with a little ballet around Dovi for P2, Ducati stays ahead... for now. Crutchlow muscles his way past Jorge, who shakes his head over the move.
Lap 8: Rossi already has some breathing space over Dovi. Tito Rabat is out.
Lap 7: Lorenzo has had enough of this status quo and he takes P3 from Marquez. Rossi has had enough too! He takes the lead of the Czech GP.
Lap 6: Bradley Smith is out.
Lap 5: Bit of a Mexican standoff at the front. Everyone seems to be in a tyre-conservation mode. All attacks are on hold for later, perhaps.
Lap 4: Marquez takes P3 at Turn 5. Goes wide under braking but keeps the inside line into the next corner and hold position.
Lap 3: Marquez now not letting Jorge breathe. But Marquez overcooks it and goes wide and nearly collects Cal. Marquez is back on the neck of Lorenzo. Can't get through though.
Lap 2: Rossi dices with Dovi in the final few corners but the Ducati holds on. This allows Marquez to close in. Marc pounces again on Rossi, but The Doctor keeps the door tight, and that allows Jorge to step through for P3.
Lap 1: The lights go and out and it's Rossi who gets the best start among the frontrunners. Rossi gets the holeshot in to Turn 1! Dovi takes the lead a few corners later. Smith, Bradl and Vinales are down.
Preview: Hello and welcome to the Czech Grand Prix here at Brno! Dovizioso will be starting from pole position ahead of Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez with Jorge Lorenzo leading the second row. With three Ducatis in the top six, it looks like Dovi's race to lose. The Grand Prix begins at 1200 GMT, find out who takes the chequered flag.
