Moto3 Brno, Race: Fabio Di Giannantonio gets the first victory in the World Championship

Fabio Di Giannantonio conquered an outstanding victory in the Czech circuit, his first in the World Championship. Canet and Kornfeil step on the podium too, Bezzecchi new World Championship leader.

He had been looking for it for a very long time, he was hoping for it but there had always been something standing in the way of getting to the highest setp of the podium until today: Fabio Di Giannantonio finally managed to win in Brno after an amazing battle. Aron Canet and the local rider Jakub Kornfeil will step on the podium with him, while Marco Bezzecchi got the leading position in the World Championship ranking despite crossing the finish line 6th. He now has three points more than Jorge Martín (out for injury) and 17 more than ‘Diggia’.

We witnessed an amazing kickoff performed by the three riders occupying the front row of the starting grid. The poleman immediately took the lead and ran away but there was a terrible crash only a few laps after the beginning of the race: Toba slipped, violently crashing against the side protection barriers and he had to be carried away on a gurney. Kornfeil didn’t manage to conquer a large advantage and was soon reached by his opponents. A group of 22 riders created a long train, closely followed by another quartet led by Binder. Behind them Nepa, who later had to go back to the pit lane and retire. A few laps before the end we lost one of the contenders: McPhee had to withdraw from the competition after a bad crash due to a contact with Ramírez.

This Moto3 race gave us an incredible battle for the first step on the podium, especially among 8 riders, who never stopped fighting until the chequered flag. Eventually, Fabio Di Giannantonio managed to conquer a well-deserved first victory ahead of Aron Canet and Jakub Kornfeil, but with very short margins from their numerous rivals. Enea Bastianini finished the race 4th followed by Gabriel Rodrigo and the new World Championship leader Marco Bezzecchi. Marcos Ramírez crossed the finish line 7th ahead of Philipp Öttl, Albert Arenas, and Lorenzo Dalla Porta.
