<p>The rider with the Ducati satellite team won his fourth consecutive sprint race, giving him 328 points—seven more than Bagnaia, who finished in ninth.</p>
<p>“I feel great. Although starting from sixth place may not have been the ideal, at least I was able to pass,” he informed the press.</p>
<p>“Winning wasn’t easy… However, it feels fantastic to be in the championship lead at this time. It’s a fantasy.</p>
<p>He expressed optimism that he could “finish the weekend in the same way” in the main event on Sunday.</p>
<p>The Italian Marini, who had previously set a record lap at the Mandalika circuit on the tourist island of Lombok, ended behind Martin by more than a second.</p>
<p>For the first time in his career, Martin is in the lead in the MotoGP standings.</p>
<p>Bagnaia struggled earlier in the day, qualifying for the first time this season outside of the second round, placing him 13th on the grid.</p>
<p>After suffering an injury and arriving late in Lombok on Friday morning, Italian rider Bezzecchi, who is now third in the overall standings, completed an incredible performance.</p>
<p>Last year, MotoGP made its first appearance in Indonesia since 1997 at a brand-new location.</p>
