Oliveira and Binder claim second one-two in a row for KTM

Miguel Oliveira and Brad Binder backed up their historical result last weekend with yet another KTM one-two in Sepang.

Whilst the Sepang International Circuit couldn’t be more different as a circuit to Phillip Island, the race followed a strangely similar pattern wth the Portuguese rider riding away at the front of the pack with Brad Binder and new World Champion Franco Morbidelli battling away for the remaining two spots on the podium. 

Despite being too late to mount a challenge in the World Championship, Miguel Oliveira looked in a class of his own out front, leaving his team-mate and the World Champion to battle it out. 

Mattia Pasini was fourth just ahead of compatriot Pecco Bagnaia, whilst local rider Hafizh Syahrin was sixth, beating out Fabio Quartararo, Xavi Vierge, Isaac Viñales and Tetsuta Nagashima who rounded out the top ten.
