2012 Moto3 Championship

Spoiler Alert: 2012 Moto3 Championship results from Mugello, Italy, listed below

At this weekend’s Gran Premio d’Italia TIM at Mugello it was Blusens Avintia’s Maverick Viñales who recorded a narrow victory in the Moto3 race ahead of local favourite Romano Fenati and Sandro Cortese.

There was drama early on as Racing Team Germany’s Louis Rossi crashed out on lap two, almost taking out Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Danny Kent. Team Italia FMI’s Fenati started to charge up the field three laps in, taking the lead in front of Red Bull KTM’s Sandro Cortese. While the racing was keeping the crowd entertained, further down the group Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3’s Alberto Moncayo and RW Racing GP’s Luis Salom crashed out of the race, putting an end to their charge.

Shortly after, Cortese’s teammate Arthur Sissis retired from the race with a mechanical issue, while on the same lap, Estrella Galicia 0,0’s Miguel Oliveira suffered a crash as he was chasing the leading group. IodaRacing Project’s Jonas Folger suffered further misery to his season, as he had to pit with a bike problem on lap 13. Two laps later, Moto FGR’s Jasper Iwema pulled into the pits with a mechanical issue, ending his race prematurely.

A group of seven riders had formed at the front with nine laps remaining, with all riders switching positions frequently as the win and final podium positions were being hotly contested. A lap later Viñales made his way into the lead and tried to pull out a gap to the front, with Cortese and Oliveira’s teammate Alex Rins doing their best to stick with him. Fenati however put the hammer down and joined Viñales and Cortese at the front, as a battle for the top three spots ensued. The trio stuck together and were nearly wheel-to-wheel heading into the last lap with Fenati in the lead, yet it was Viñales who led as they entered the final home straight.

In the end it was the Spaniard who won the drag to the line to take the chequered flag by a mere two hundredths of a second, with Fenati and Cortese completing the podium. Cortese still retains the championship lead, although Viñales has now cut it to nine points. The winning trio were followed by San Carlo Gresini Moto3’s Niccolò Antonelli, Danny Kent, JHK Laglisse’s Efrén Vázquez, Alex Rins, Redox-Ongetta-Centro Seta’s Jakub Kornfeil, AirAsia-SIC-Ajo’s Khairuddin and Mapfre’s Héctor Faubel.
