Perhaps he should always start from the back? In a repeat of his Motegi feat Marc Marquez once again aggressively stormed his way through the entire field to a clear and easy win.
It was the newly crowned champions ninth win of the season, and set a new points record for intermediate class racing, beating the old figures set by Daijiro Kato during the 2001 250cc season.
Julian Simon did all he could to keep Marquez at bay for Blusens Avintia, but eventually had to settle for second, leaving him still without a Moto2 race win.
Making it an all Spanish podium and a great day at his home track where he has just officially had a corner named after him was Nico Terol, it is also his Aspar teams home race giving them something to celebrate too after Folger’s problems in Moto3. Terol’s third is his first top ten finish of the season.
All the top six finishers were Suters, the first Kalex to cross the line was Mika Kallio’s Marc VDS bike in seventh.
