Bastianini is still in a beast plan and is the new capo of Moto2

The Italian, who had just won at Jerez, once again dominated the race at Brno from start to finish. Lowes and Roberts podiums. Fernández, fifth.


Enea Bastianini has shown in Brno that her victory in the second round of Jerez was not, by any means, the result of chance. The Beast continues in the beast plan and in the Czech test he has achieved his second consecutive victory in Moto2, leading again from the first to the last lap. And this time, in addition, crossing the finish line first gives him the extra prize of becoming the new leader of the intermediate category, which can start to scare the competition because, seen his power lately, he could be a kingpin of level and for long ...

Bastianini started third and started better than anyone, to take the lead from the first corner and from there to shoot at all times alone, although always with the threat of Lowes, the first of his companions on the podium. The Englishman tried to put pressure from a second away, which he sometimes cut by half, but the Italian put him in his place at all times every time he got closer than necessary.

The one who closed the podium was Roberts, who traveled in no man's land and who exchanged his second pole for his first World Cup podium, the first with an American stamp since Kocinski last stepped on it 27 years ago (Assen 93). He had no option to dream of the box Marini, who finished fourth to 2.8 of Joe and 8.7 of a Bastianini who in the end crossed the line with 0.4 over Lowes. And the fact is that the Italian knew how to perfectly manage the advantage he had over the Englishman, allowing himself the luxury of regulating in the last lap.The best of the Spaniards was Augusto Fernández, with fifth place, and he crossed the finish line ahead of Bezzecchi, Navarro and Martín. The Madrilenian starred in a very animated first lap because, after a good start in which he placed fourth, he overtook Lowes and Roberts to take second for a few moments, although then he saw helplessly as they both passed him at the same time in turn 10. The Moto3 champion was losing steam as the laps passed, bothered by the lack of grip, which was for everyone, and had to settle for finishing in the top ten. There he did not have time to reach his partner Nagashima. The Japanese lost the lead after finishing eleventh, just behind Canet, who closed the top ten. Until now the leader came back from far behind (he started 21st), but now he is 18 points behind the new leader, a Bastianini that has the first of his pursuers in Marini, 15 points.

With respect to the rest of the Spanish, Vierge 12º, Ramírez 19º, Pons 20º and Garzó did not fall.
