2014 Mugello Moto3 Results

Romano Fenati, the Italian pilot for Valentino Rossi’s SKY Racing Team VR46, excited his home crowd at Mugello when he battled his way to victory in the Moto3 race. This was his third win of 2014 Moto3.

Fenati was joined on the Mugello Moto3 podium by Calvo Team’s Isaac Vinales and Estrella Galicia 0,0’s Alex Rins.

While donning special red, white and green Italian livery, the teenager keep his nerves in check as he took the victory by a mere 0.01 of a second at the checkered flag of Mugello’s long and fast.

Vinales was aable to beat Rins by virtue of a faster best lap as they crossed the line together.

A last lap crash between championship leader Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo), the younger brother of Mugello MotoGP winner Marc Marquez, Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0), and Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) saw them all miss out on the points, with Miller therefore seeing his standings advantage cut to just five points.

The top five also featured Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing) and Niklas Ajo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo), as they both crossed the line within 0.3s of race winner Fenati.

Going into the final laps, before Miller, Marquez and Bastianini crashed out, there were 13 riders split by just 1.5s, with Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold), Alessandro Tonucci (CIP Mahindra), Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3), Brad Binder (Ambrogio Racing) and Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo) eventually completing the top ten.

Hafiq Azmi, John McPhee and Niccolo Antonelli all crashed out, with Jakub Kornfeil getting tangled up in Antonelli’s accident and later retiring due to a technical problem. Francesco Bagnaia also pulled off with a technical issue midrace, whilst Bryan Schouten finished 21st after starting from pit lane due to problems on the line.

Efren Vazquez recovered well to finish 12th after jump starting and having to ride through pit lane as a penalty.

As for points, Miller retains the lead with 104 – five ahead of Fenati.

The Moto3 series now breaks for two weeks before heading to Catalunya in Spain for round seven.
