Moto3: the voices of the Top 3
Jaume Masia (Ajo-KTM; 1st): “Winning a race is always the best feeling! My start to the season was very unhappy. I crashed twice through no fault of mine. Now I have finished two races and won one I hope there will be more races like this.”
Dennis Foggia (Leopard-Honda; 2nd): “This track is great, but the race wasn’t easy. I had some braking problems and I just wanted to finish. I’m really happy.”
Andrea Migno (Snipers-Honda; 3rd): “I really enjoyed this race. It wasn’t quite enough for the win, but it was still fun. The duel with Masia was great. After Argentina, we made peace again. For me, this podium is a good result.”
Moto3: Another late collision
In the end, Öncü had to settle for fifth place. Artigas is sixth. Guevara, Tatay, Rossi and Suzuki complete the top 10. The rest of the points go to Ortola, Ogden, Nepa, Fernandez and Fellon. A collision occurs between Holgado and Toba on the last lap. Nor see the checkered flag.
Moto3: First victory of the season for Masia
In the last meters, it starts again. Masia uses the slipstream on the backstretch and passes Migno, who tries to counterattack but fails to hold the line, allowing Foggia to sneak past.
Thus, Masia won his first race of the season after two retirements and a seventh place. Foggia is second and takes the championship lead. Migno saved third place with a 0.096 second lead over Sasaki.
Moto3: Moreira absent
At the start of the last lap, Moreira crashes and spoils the chance for a better result. It was only six. Migno leads, but can he defend the lead to the finish?
Moto3: final phase
The penultimate round has begun. Migno and Masia have been arguing for the lead for some time. He keeps coming and going. Therefore, the two cannot be sensibly distinguished.
Foggia is in third place, followed by Sasaki and Öncü. Moreira and Artigas are also still there. These will be exciting last kilometers.
Moto3: round trip
And already Foggia is only fourth. It shows how fast it can go. After one lap, he had to let Masia, Migno and Sasaki pass. But with four laps to go on the clock, nothing is decided yet.
Moto3: 5 laps to go
The crucial phase begins. And the first 7 are always close to each other. Foggia fails to escape, but has Masia, Migno, Moreira, Sasaki, Öncü and Artigas in tow.
Guevara is eighth after his double long lap but four seconds behind the leading group. His teammate Garcia abandons the race after his fall.
Moto3: Foggia ahead
Foggia has successfully worked his way through the leading group and takes the lead from Masia. The Honda rider had impressive pace in practice. Can he leave now? It doesn’t look like it at the moment.
Moto3: Wild leading group
The top 7 gives nothing. Everyone drives to the limit. Masia temporarily lost his mind after an error, but fought back. Sasaki and Öncü breathe down his neck. Foggia, Moreira, Artigas and Migno are also still fighting for the podium. Seven more rounds.
Moto3: new direction
At the start of lap eight, Masia snuck past Öncü and Sasaki to take the lead for the first time. Moreira, Artigas, Foggia and Migno are also part of the leading group. There is now almost a two second gap behind them due to failures.
Moto3: The championship leader crashed
Garcia crashes after making contact with Holgado at turn 12. He picks up his bike and rides, but he’s the last one. Shortly after, Holgado also falls. It sorts in place 21.
Moto3: Group of four
Öncü, Moreira and Artigas change position almost every lap. And Sasaki is now involved too. After a new fastest lap in the race of 2:16.608 minutes, he is back in the top 3.
Moto3: it comes and goes
During the fourth lap, the lead changes again. Now Artigas is ahead. Moreira is second, Öncü third. Sasaki is slightly behind in fourth place. Guevara is fifth but has yet to serve his penalty.
Moto3: change of direction
Öncü closed the gap to Moreira again and moved on to the fourth lap. Artigas, Holgado, Sasaki, Guevara, Garcia, Foggia, Migno and Masia are currently in the top 10. But the order is constantly changing. It’s a typical Moto3 race.
Moto3: Fierce Battles
Guevara skipped the start and had to take a double penalty for a long lap. He currently sits in eighth place. Up front, Moreira manages to take a small lead after two laps.
The pursuers are close together and the fight is fierce. It comes and goes. Foggia, just ahead, is only tenth.
