Victory in Misano – an excellent weekend in Italy
Since Friday’s first free practice, Augusto Fernández has been marking the best times with Di Giannantonio and Márquez. The three have formed the first line at the start of the San Marino Grand Prix and among them has been the race.
The Italian rider led the entire race from pole with Augusto behind him and Márquez after them waiting for some error. After some previous attempt by Augusto of overtaking Di Giannantonio, they reached the last lap in a beautiful fight. At a time when the Italian pilot left “the door open”, Augusto did not flinch and attacked for the first position, crossing the finish line first.
Augusto’s second consecutive victory, reduces his points difference to the leader of Moto2 World Championship to 26.
“Very happy with another victory, second consecutive and very important for the championship. With Alex first, we continue scratching points for the World Cup. The race has been tough, Di Giannantonio has pulled very hard and I have seen that I could go with him to finally overtake him. Very happy for the victory and to continue in Aragon… Gaasss”
