2014 Mugello Moto2 Results

The 2014 Moto2 Championship headed to the scenic countryside of Tuscany this past weekend for the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello.

And due to a patient and tactically approach, Marc VDS Racing’s Tito Rabat was able to secure the victory – his third of 2014 Moto2.

Rabat finished 0.248 of a second ahead of Pons HP 40’s Luis Salom. Taking the final podium position was AGR Team’s Jonas Folger.

Rabat produced his best lap of the race on his penultimate circulation having come from third position at two-thirds race distance to overtake his less experienced rivals. The championship leader extended his standings lead to 22 points with his third victory of 2014, further underlining his World title credentials.

Rookies Salom and Folger both produced excellent rides, each leading the race before Rabat took control.

An intriguing battle for fourth place in the final stages saw Simone Corsi (NGM Forward Racing) outpace Dominique Aegerter (Technomag carXpert) by just 0.007s, with Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team) finishing just behind that pair.

Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing), Sam Lowes (Speed Up), Maverick Viñales (Pons HP 40) and Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team) all featured in the top ten.

The only American on the grid, Josh Herrin (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing), crashed out early. Mattia Pasini (NGM Forward Racing) also slid out mid race, with Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) another non-finisher due to an incident which also involved Takaaki Nakagami (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia) – though the Japanese rider stayed upright to eventually finish 16th.

The Moto2 series now breaks for two weeks before heading to Catalunya in Spain.
