2021 Estoril World Supersport Race 1 Result: Close As You Like It

World Supersport race one was eighteen laps of Estoril. Nikki Tuuli started from pit lane due to "irresponsible riding" in race one last weekend. 

Steven Odendaal led Federico Caricasulo into the first turn ahead of Philipp Oettl and Jules Cluzel. Hannes Soomer and Manuel Gonzalez were very close in fifth and sixth. Oettl, the Kawasaki among five Yamahas at the front, took second place from Caricasulo and set the first fastest lap of the race as the leading five started to get away from Dominique Aegerter heading the second group. 

On lap four, Philipp Oettl takes the lead into turn one, having to fight to keep it over the next couple of turns. Jules Cluzel kept looking past Federico Caricasulo, looking the faster of the pair. Raffaele de Rosa set the fastest lap in seventh place, only to immediately have it taken from him by the rider in twenty sixth place, Nikki Tuuli, five seconds quicker than the rider ahead of him. He caught Shogo Kawasaki's Kawasaki to begin his fight through the grid. 

The leading six riders were covered just over a second as they became a group of five, Federico Caricasulo sliding out of third place, getting back on track in time to be overtaken by Nikki Tuuli who set another fastest lap climbing to twenty first place. 

Philipp Oettl, Steven Odendaal, Jules Cluzel, Manuel Gonzalez and Dominique Aegerter were covered by under a second on lap eight as Nikki Tuuli set another fastest lap. Aegerter finally made his pass attempts on Gonzalez stick, taking fourth place behind Jules Cluzel. 

Nikki Tuuli set the fastest lap again. 

With no changes at the front for a couple of laps, the leading five remained covered by eight tenths of a second, two seconds clear of sixth placed Raffaele de Rosa. Nikki Tuuli worked his way into the points, passing the veteran Michel Fabrizio on his way to fourteenth place. Cluzel started looking for a way past, showing Odendaal his front wheel a couple of times. 

Dominique Aegerter passed a frustrated Jules Cluzel, but Cluzel recovered third place into turn six as they both thought they should be fighting over Odendaal's second place. Instead, on lap sixteen of eighteen, Steven Odendaal took the lead from Philipp Oettl, only to have Oettl take it back into turn one pf lap seventeen. The last lap started with three quarters of a second covering the leading five riders, and Odendaal took the lead back as Aegerter took third place from Cluzel. Cluzel took third back into turn six, swapping back and forth over the next turns, leaving the leading two to fight for the win. 

Steven Odendaal held the lead to the line, winning in front of Philipp Oettl. Third place was a drag race from the last corner, won by Jules Cluzel, fifteen thousandths of a second ahead of Dominique Aegerter. Manuel Gonzalez finished miles behind, a quarter of a second off fourth place. Nikki Tuuli finished in eleventh place.

Steven Odendaal's win is his third from three races, giving him a thirty one point lead over Dominique Aegerter and thirty eight over Raffaele de Rosa. Philipp Oettl is a point further back with Jules Cluzel a further four, forty three points from the top.

2021 Mugello Moto2 Qualifying Result: Rain Is No Rival

Mugello wasn’t quite as resplendent as previously advertised by the time intermediate class qualifying got underway, with rain flags waving halfway through Q1 and throughout Q2. The drizzle didn’t seem to affect lap times too much though and it certainly didn’t stop sensational rookie Raul Fernandez from showing off his speed and claiming a second consecutive pole position in the class. Sam Lowes was his closest challenger, a quarter of a second back, while Jorge Navarro made a late jump onto the front row, demoting Remy Gardner. The championship leader opens row two ahead of home boys Fabio Di Giannantonio and Tony Arbolino, the rookie making great progress in familiar territory.

A subdued (on track) yet animated (in the pits) Marco Bezzecchi settled for seventh position, being joined on the third row by Xavi Vierge and Marcel Schrotter. Joe Roberts completed the top ten and opens row four from teammate Lorenzo Dalla Porta and rookie Ai Ogura. A very notable mention goes to Fermín Aldeguer, the MotoE rookie currently acting as replacement rider cruising through Q1 and qualifying 15th on the grid, ahead of Bo Bendsneyder and Aron Canet.

2021 Estoril World Superbike Race 1 Result: Tyres Again

World Superbike race one at Estoril would be twenty one laps around a windy circuit, with most choosing the SCX superpole race tyre. Very few of the top riders would select the SC0 rear tyre. Several riders retroactively lost their quickest Superpole laps for passing a yellow flag, a harsh penalty when the qualifying tyre only gives them one quick lap.

Jonathan Rea in pole position was one of the outliers with the SC0 tyre, and as the lights went out, Rea was beaten to turn one by Scott Redding and Toprak Razgatlioglu with Michael Ruben Rinaldi right behind him. Alex Lowes, recovering from his front row demotion, went wide at turn one and lost a few places. Lucas Mahias jumped up two places and slotted into fifth place, making his Kawasaki very wide, putting a plug in the second group. After lap, the first four riders were a second and a half clear from the fight over fifth. Another lap, after Razgatlioglu set the fastest lap, and that gap was well over two seconds when Alex Lowes finally found a way past the Frenchman.

Michael Ruben Rinaldi briefly held third place, fighting Jonathan Rea as the leading two broke away, but Rea took it back before the start of lap four, a second behind Scott Redding and Toprak Razgatlioglu. Six laps in, Rinaldi lost tough with Rea, dropping to a second behind him.

A few seconds behind the front four, Alex Lowes held a gap briefly, until Garrett Gerloff jumped the gap from Eugene Laverty, Michael van der Mark and Chaz Davies further back. Gerloff inherited fifth place after Alex Lowes crashed out in front of him, and the gap behind increased as Eugene Laverty also lost the front behind him, with the chaos happening around Gerloff without any input from him for a change. Gerloff started chipping away at the three second gap to Rinaldi in front, a tenth or two a second quicker.

At half race distance, Jonathan Rea's tyre started working better than those of the riders around him, and over three laps, he eliminated a gap of over a second to make the fight at the front a three-way battle.

By lap fifteen, Rea was the quickest rider in the front group, but lap after lap, he couldn't find a way past the incredible braking of Razgatlioglu into turn one. Three laps from the end, the front three were covered by under half a second, with Rea passing Razgatlioglu into turn one only to be beaten on the brakes, while Scott Redding, weak into turn one, was spared a challenge by the fight over second place, able to exploit his superior pace the remainder of the lap.

Scott Redding held off the challenges, leading out of the last turn by almost a second as Toprak Razgatlioglu beat a hard-charging Jonathan Rea by under four hundredths of a second. Behind the podium battle, Garrett Gerloff held off Michael Ruben Rinaldi for the last couple of laps to take fourth place. Chaz Davies took sixth place, three and a half seconds later.

Scott Redding questioned his tyre choice throughout the race, suggesting he may use the SC0 rear yesterday, while Jonathan Rea lamented the early battle with Rinaldi that cost him contact with the two faster riders ahead.

Scott Redding closed the gap to Jonathan Rea in the championship to just eight points and Toprak Razgatlioglu took third place, five points ts of Alex Lowes whose finishing outside the points cost him second place in the title chase.

2021 Mugello MotoGP Qualifying Result: Triumph, Tows and Tribulations

The habitual thrill of MotoGP qualifying attracted some unwelcome gloomy visitors over the scenic Italian circuit but the clouds behaved themselves long enough for us to enjoy two standout sessions – for very different reasons. It was hardly a surprise to see Fabio Quartararo at the top of the timesheets as soon as he was unleashed on track and because he had no real challenger, the Frenchman challenged himself to improve the all time lap record once sat on provisional pole. He promptly achieved that with one minute left on the clock and claimed his fourth consecutive pole position of the season. However, a late charge from Pecco Bagnaia and Johann Zarco ensured that the Yamaha man won’t be too comfortable going into turn 1 on Sunday, with the fast-starting Ducatis waiting to pounce from the front row of the grid.

Aleix Espargaro made the best of his escape from Q1 and turned it into a fine second row start, having spent much of Q1 inside the top three positions. He will be in familiar company from Jack Miller and Brad Binder, who pushed teammate Miguel Oliveira to row three. The Portuguese rider opens a strong third row featuring the Suzuki duo of Alex Rins and Joan Mir, while Franco Morbidelli rounded out the top ten on home soil.

Meanwhile, Maverick Viñales watched from his garage with a face like thunder as the TV director turned the camera towards public enemy number one: Marc Marquez. Fully aware that he needs a solid reference to tackle Q1, the Honda man had left pitlane superglued to the back of his compatriot. The chosen target was unhappy but after an underwhelming first run, Viñales had little time to shake off the unwanted attention from both Marquez brothers on his second run, as much as he tried to. Marquez played his cards and claimed top spot in the session, while Viñales was set free for one final flying lap that he ultimately messed up. And that, kids, is the tale of how Marquez joined his teammate on the fourth row of the grid and Viñales, with solid race pace, has to mount a comeback from 13th grid position.

2021 Mugello MotoGP FP4 Result: Brownie Points For Quartararo

While the start of the final practice session was delayed after a red flag in Moto3, dark clouds stretched over the Tuscan hillside, biding their time before causing trouble. FP4 was not affected, beyond a small drop in temperature, but Fabio Quartararo kept himself entertained with a spontaneous sightseeing of the gravel at turn 4 that didn’t stop him from claiming top spot on the very next lap. After the early mishap, the Frenchman answered every challenger and kept top spot to the checkered flag, while displaying fine race pace.

FP3 top dog Pecco Bagnaia was a tenth of a second slower than his main title rival and a touch behind him on pace too – although on more worn off tyres – while Takaaki Nakagami found some speed to join the top three. Alex Rins showed respectable pace on his way to fourth, only two thousandths of a second ahead of Miguel Oliveira. Franco Morbidelli continues to overcome his top speed deficit and climb into sixth place, but four tenths slower than the top five. Jack Miller and Joan Mir kept close, while Aleix Espargaro and Brad Binder rounded out the top ten positions.

In a deva vu from this morning, Maverick Viñales missed out by two thousandths of a second, ending the session just ahead of the Honda-powered duo of Alex Marquez and Pol Espargaro. The remaining Honda finished 17th, Marc Marquez continuing to struggle and doing some off-roading at San Donato early on. Much like previous Mugello GP winners Danilo Petrucci and Valentino Rossi, the Spaniard ended the session over a second slower than the leader.

2021 Mugello Moto3 Qualifying Result: Better Early Than Late

After Mugello offered impeccable conditions for the circus’ return to Italy, a touch of grey coloured the sky ahead of the lightweight class’ qualifying session. It ultimately proved irrelevant but teams and riders still tried to gamble so Q2 was slow to get going, until Pedro Acosta opened the show, fresh off an eventful Q1. It was Gabriel Rodrigo who claimed provision pole after the first run of laps but half the pack was yet to post a timed lap until the final handful of minutes. Ultimately it was Q1 leader Tatsuki Suzuki who kept the pace up to claim pole position in Mugello by over half a second from the championship leader. Acosta wobbled his way through Q1 but managed to secure his first front row start of his rookie season to date, while Rodrigo got pushed back to third.

With many of the teams only joining the action for two flying laps, the strategy didn’t really pay off, especially as a scary incident involving Jason Dupasquier and Ayumu Sasaki prompted a red flag in the closing stages of Q2. However, Dennis Foggia seems to be getting his season back on track with fourth on the grid on home soil, ahead of Jaume Masia and Jeremy Alcoba on the second row. Romano Fenati opens row three, where he is joined by Niccolò Antonelli and John McPhee, while Sasaki and Dupasquier qualified on row four but the Swiss rider required medical assistance after their accident and his participation in tomorrow’s race looks uncertain.

FP3 leader Andrea Migno will not be particularly happy to see his name down in 17th position, behind Darryn Binder and ahead of teammate Filip Salac, but the Rivacold Snipers duo did not seem to get a proper flying lap in. Another notable mention goes to wildcard Alberto Surra, who missed out on Q2 by three tenths and is due to start the race in 19th grid spot.

2021 Estoril World Superbike Superpole Result: A Short Windy Track

Fifteen windy minutes would determine the grid positions for race one this afternoon and tomorrow morning's Superpole race. Riders generally spend the first half on a race tyre, usually the SCX rear tyre, and pit in for one last fast lap on the sticky qualifying tyre. 

Tito Rabat joined the regular early starters Leon Haslam and Jonathan Rea, but it was Toprak Razgatlioglu who set the first benchmark time of 1'36.944 only to have it deleted for exceeding the track limits. Jonathan Rea set a 1'36.635 with Lucas Mahias a quarter of a second behind. Garrett Gerloff, Alex Lowes, Scott Redding and Eugene Laverty rounded out the top six as riders pitted in.

And relax, sit down, have a cuppa. Your new tyre will be ready shortly.

Scott Redding and Tito Rabat set out early, avoiding the rush, with Jonathan Rea joining them a minute later. Rabat's plan to get a tow from Scott Redding didn't work out as well as he would have liked with Redding setting a new record of 1'36.047. Jonathan Rea, without any traffic to distract him, set an even quicker 1'35.876. Alex Lowes was third quickest, holding off late charges from Toprak Razgatlioglu and Garrett Gerloff. Tom Sykes was sixth quickest. The third row was headed by Michael Ruben Rinaldi, ahead of Eugene Laverty and Lucas Mahias.

2021 Estoril World Supersport Superpole Result: A Familiar Name On Top

World Supersport Superpole qualifying was a windy twenty minute session. Nikki Tuuli would start race one from the pit lane due to his incident last weekend; his qualifying would be for grid position for Sunday's race.

Luca Bernardi opened the session with a 1'40.664, quicker than Jules Cluzel and Dominique Aegerter on the first timed lap. His time was beaten a lap later by Federico Caricasulo who set another fastest lap, a 1'40.192, on his third timed lap. Jules Cluzel and Steven Odendaal were second and third as most riders pitted in for a break, but Philipp Oettl stayed out for one more lap and sneaked in a second place, pushing Cluzel down a spot.

After a brief break, Federico Caricasulo put in a 1'39.973, having avoided traffic before setting up a clean run. At the flag, he was three thousandths of a second off his best time, and Steven Odendaal was the only rider on a lap that might challenge him. 

Steven Odendaal lost out in the last sector, but still managed to get himself onto the front row, third placed alongside Federico Caricasulo and Philipp Oettl. Jules Cluzel, Dominique Aegerter and Raffaele de Rosa will start from the second row. Nikki Tuuli will start race two from seventh, but Hannes Soomer will sit on his grid spot in race one, ahead of Luca Bernardi.
