Jerez MotoGP Test 4pm Times: Rins Takes Over As Test Winds Down

With two hours of the Jerez test left to go, Alex Rins sits at the top of the timesheets, the first rider to crack into the 1'36s. Maverick Viñales is currently second, while Rins' Suzuki teammate Joan Mir is in third.

The test is coming to an early close for some riders. Marc Marquez stopped after completing just 7 laps, still in pain with his neck and back after his big crash in practice on Saturday. The Repsol Honda rider tried a new aerodynamic fairing looking much closer to the Yamaha item than Honda's old aero package, a part which Takaaki Nakagami also tested. Suzuki, meanwhile, has spent most of their time working on their 2022 engine and on settings for Le Mans, in two weeks' time.

Jerez MotoGP Test 1pm Times: Viñales Leads As Quartararo Heads To France

It has been a very busy time for the MotoGP grid, fresh off the back of the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday. The bikes were off and out on track from 10am this morning, running through a batch of parts and settings for the next part of the MotoGP season. Fabio Quartararo is absent, the Monster Energy Yamaha rider having headed to France to get a medical assessment of his arm, with a view to surgery for arm pump.

Maverick Viñales is currently fastest, after a brief red flag when a spill left oil and Aleix Espargaro on the track. Viñales is three tenths quicker than Suzuki's Alex Rins, and Miguel Oliveira on the KTM. Marc Marquez is out testing, but has so far only put in a few laps, taking it easy on his arm so as not to disrupt the healing process.

2021 Jerez MotoE Race Result: Fresh Start, Same Old Mistakes

The first MotoE race of the season got underway in the hottest conditions of the weekend and at the end of 8 laps we were treated to a first time victor in the class. It did not look like it at the start, when Lukas Tulovic took the lead into turn 1 from race favourites Eric Granado and Dominique Aegerter, as well as impressive rookie Fermín Aldeguer. After a few exchanges at the front, Granado retook the lead from Alessandro Zaccone, with Aegerter and reigning cup leader Jordi Torres getting ahead of Tulovic. However, the German rider soon got tangled with Aldeguer at turn 6 and both of them left the podium battle in favour of the gravel trap on lap 2.

Helped by the fact that rival Aegerter was stuck and struggling behind Zaccone, Granado extended a bit of a gap at the front and set a new race lap record the next time around but he did not get to enjoy that for long, the Brazilian crashing out at turn 6. That handed the lead to Zaccone, with only Aegerter and Torres within striking distance for the final five laps. Aegerter had a look at every opportunity but the Italian started the final lap in the lead and handled the pressure well to claim a maiden MotoE victory by four tenths of a second. Aegerter came close to losing second but Torres could not find the right place to overtake and settled for third.

Mattia Casadei and Miquel Pons joined the top five, while Matteo Ferrari did well to finish sixth, having started at the back of the grid. Granado managed to rejoin the race and grabbed a couple of points for 13th place.

2021 Jerez MotoGP Race Result: The Start Of A Fairytale With The End Of A Thriller

With the Circuit of Jerez having been a Yamaha playground over the last couple of days, Fabio Quartararo started the race with the enthusiasm of a thousand toddlers and although things seemed to go his way for much of the race, the fairytale turned into a nightmare in the blink of an eye and Jack Miller became the hero of the day. It was a long wait for the Australian since Assen 2016 so the tears were justified while he picked up the winner’s trophy in Jerez. To make it a perfect day for Ducati, teammate Pecco Bagnaia followed him home in second and became the fourth different championship leader in four consecutive races this season. Franco Morbidelli was definitely not the man Yamaha planned to see on the podium but third place on a two-year-old antique was not too shabby.

It was not particularly surprising to see Miller use the holeshot device to perfection to take the lead off the line from Morbidelli, Bagnaia and Quartararo, followed by Aleix Espargaro, Takaaki Nakagami and with Joan Mir making a good start up to seventh. Maverick Viñales and Alex Rins kept close, but Johann Zarco made a pretty poor start from the second row of the grid and dropped out of the top 10. Aleix Espargaro, Nakagami, Mir and Viñales managed to hold onto the leaders in the early stages, but Rins crashed out at turn six on the thrid lap, for the second consecutive race. Having started from his worst qualifying position in the premier class, Marc Marquez joined the top 10 early on but soon came under attack from the likes of Zarco and Brad Binder and immediately lost positions to colleagues Pol Espargaro and Stefan Bradl, going back to 14th position.

Back at the front, Miller held onto the lead from Morbidelli, while Quartararo found a way past Bagnaia by lap 3. The Frenchman soon encountered former teammate Morbidelli and made quick work of him, going in pursuit of Miller and quickly launching an attack into turn 13 to lead the way by lap 5. The Ducati could not reply at turn one and the Yamaha man started to extend a gap of over seven tenths of a second on that lap. Morbidelli had a harder time finding a way past Miller and was losing ground early on, dropping one second back on the Australian and holding back a group including Aleix Espargaro, Bagnaia, Nakagami, Mir, Viñales and a recovering Zarco. About half a second back, the Honda trio of Pol Espargaro, Marquez and Bradl kept themselves entertained, with the occasional interference from Enea Bastianini.

Quartararo and Miller continued to be the fastest men, eight tenths apart on track, with Morbidelli not much slower but not reducing the gap to the leaders either. Aleix Espargaro did not look like a threat in the early stages but kept around half a second behind the provisional podium men, fending off Bagnaia until lap 9, when the Italian picked up the chase into turn 6. Nakagami was biding his time to attack the Aprilia too, while Mir was in charge of the next group one second down the road, including Zarco and Viñales.

With Quartararo over a second ahead of Miller at the halfway mark of the race and that gap keeping steady, all eyes were on the battle for third, two seconds behind, where Morbidelli came under threat from Bagnaia. The Petronas man clung onto that podium admirably, with his great exit from turn 13 mitigating the Ducati’s advantage on the straight but you can do one thing right a million times and still get it wrong the next time around, so a mistake at the final turn eventually handed Bagnaia third position with 11 laps remaining.

While all that was unfolding, Quartararo suddenly lost his entire advantage over laps 14 and 15 and all of a sudden, Miller found himself ahead into turn one next time around. The Frenchman seemed to struggle to even keep close to the Australian, dropping a full second back over the course of the next lap and soon allowing Bagnaia to fly past at turn 5. The disaster continued when Morbidelli found a way past at turn 9 and Quartararo’s prospects looked bleak given the small gaps in the rest of the top ten. The likes of Nakagami, Mir and Aleix Espargaro were next to overtake him, but none of that probably hurt quite as much as seeing Viñales go past at turn 1 with 6 laps remaining. Zarco followed suit at turn 5 and Marquez as turn 6, the Honda man admirably holding onto a top ten and being one of the fastest men on track in the closing stages of the race.

While all eyes were on the shocking collapse of Quartararo, Miller had a two-second advantage to manage ahead of teammate Bagnaia for the final handful of laps, with Morbidelli steadily getting closer to try to make it a battle for second. He had no threat from behind, where Nakagami was busy fending off Mir and Aleix for fourth, with Viñales not too far back.

The final couple of laps saw Bagnaia halve the gap to his teammate, but the Australian kept calm and took the checkered flag firmly in command. Bagnaia won’t be too disappointed as he picks up the championship lead to go with the second place trophy, while Morbidelli saved the day for Yamaha with third. Nakagami was the lead Honda, while Mir settled for fifth ahead of Aleix Espargaro. Viñales had a pretty low key race in seventh position, ahead of Zarco and with the bruised Repsol Honda duo of Marquez and Espargaro rounding out the top ten positions. Miguel Oliveira and Bradl also made it past Quartararo in the final laps, the Frenchman finishing 13th.

Quartararo’s misfortune puts Bagnaia in charge of the world championship standings, albeit by a mere two points ahead of the Frenchman, while Viñales is 16 points behind and Mir 17 down on the leader.

2021 Jerez Moto2 Race Result: Untouchable

After the pure chaos of Moto3, the intermediate class presented us with an equally exceptional ride to victory but one that could not have been any more different. Starting from the front row, Fabio Di Giannantonio took the lead into turn 1 and never saw another bike again, until stopping for celebrations on the victory lap. The Italian had unrivalled pace throughout the 23 laps and used it to secure his first victory in the intermediate class and his team’s first in a considerable time. Marco Bezzecchi got to celebrate his first podium of the season, while Sam Lowes joined them on the podium to recover solid ground in the championship battle.

Di Giannantonio had made a fast start to take the lead from poleman Remy Gardner straight away, with Bezzecchi, Augusto Fernandez, Raul Fernandez, Lowes and Xavi Vierge close behind. However, Bezzecchi soon dropped to the back of that group after a mistake at turn 6.

Di Giannantonio quickly managed to build a half second gap in the first couple of laps, while Red Bull KTM Ajo teammates Gardner and Raul Fernandez were pushing to catch up and Lowes was looking for a way past teammate Augusto Fernandez, to join the top 4. His mission was made easier when the Spaniard slid out at turn six of lap 3 and while Lowes was rapidly bridging the four tenths gap to the orange bikes ahead, Bezzecchi was left half a second behind his rival.

By lap five, Di Giannantonio extended his lead to over one second, while a chasing group had formed with Gardner, Fernandez, Lowes and Bezzecchi, the next group being led by Xierge over a second down the road. The gap at the front extended to two seconds by lap 8, with the pursuers seemingly in no rush to recover that in the early stages. Fernandez soon picked up the chase from teammate Gardner to have a go at reeling in the leader but Di Giannantonio kept a rapid pace at the front. Bezzecchi and Lowes kept each other busy behind Gardner but the British rider started to struggle at the halfway point of the race, dropping half a second on the group. Gardner soon followed his example, losing some ground on Bezzecchi ahead, who in turn had half a second to get to Fernandez.

The rookie was fast but all he could do was maintain the 2.5 seconds gap to the leader, Di Giannantonio not allowing him to get any closer heading into the final 10 laps. The Italian’s consistency was impeccable at the front, while Fernandez soon had Bezzecchi to contend with, in the battle for the remaining podium positions. Gardner had dropped almost a second behind, with Lowes keen to challenge him in the final stages of the race, but things were so evenly matched that the top five men struggled to show each other a wheel for the next few laps.

The leader’s gap started to very slowly reduce in the final 8 laps, but a mistake from Fernandez at the final turn with 6 laps left allowed Bezzecchi past and left them 2.8 seconds behind Di Giannantonio. The rookie struggled to keep up with the Italians, while teammate Gardner found some late pace to catch up with him, dragging Lowes into the third place battle too. Lowes was the first to make a move after Gardner went in too hot into turn 1 with 4 laps remaining and Fernandez managed to hold onto the podium until the final two laps, when a wobble at turn 2 allowed both Lowes and Gardner through.

Di Giannantonio’s last lap celebrations reduced his gap to under two seconds for the first time but Bezzecchi was no match for his compatriot and had to settle for second. With Fernandez quickly dropping back on his well-used tyres, Lowes and Gardner were left to decide third but the Australian never got to try for an overtake and Lowes secured the podium position. Gardner finished fourth on his 100th grand prix start and Fernandez completed the top five, with Vierge, Ai Ogura, Joe Roberts, Aron Canet and Marcel Schrotter in the top ten.

Helped by his teammate’s late tyre trouble, Gardner keeps the championship lead by a minuscule three points ahead of Lowes, with Fernandez 6 points behind and Bezzecchi recovering some ground to be only 13 points down on the leader.

2021 Jerez Moto3 Race Result: Faultless Amongst Chaos

After a punishing warm up session in cool conditions, things hotted up to more a more pleasant ambiance by the time lights went out for the lightweight class race and the action got nearly flammable throughout the 22 laps. But as unpredictable as Moto3 races tend to be, the end result seems to be the same this season, extraordinary rookie Pedro Acosta turning his worst qualifying position of the season into a third consecutive victory, becoming the first ever rider to take four podiums in his first four grand prix. He came under less than friendly fire from his KTM colleagues but after some final corner drama, Romano Fenati took second, in his first podium of the year, while Jeremy Alcoba completed the podium after passing through the naughty corner of the long lap penalty twice during the race.

The start of the race told a different story, poleman Tatsuki Suzuki making a great start from pole from Andrea Migno and Gabriel Rodrigo, while front row starter Alcoba dropped a few positions and started planning his double long lap penalty, given for irresponsible riding in Q1. Darryn Binder, Fenati, Ayumu Sasaki, John McPhee, and Niccolo Antonelli closely followed, while Acosta quickly joined the top ten, having started 13th. McPhee was the first to drop out of the leading group at turn seven, leaving Jerez with an unfortunate zero points on the season’s scoresheet.

Despite the great opening lap from Suzuki, Rodrigo picked up a slipstream into turn one to start lap 2 in the lead, the duo making noise at the front in the early stages, while Binder, Migno and Fenati kept close and Alcoba did his first long lap penalty, dropping him out of the top ten, right ahead of Masia, who had made a poor start. Acosta was up to 8th and chasing down his Red Bull KTM Tech 3 colleagues Sasaki and Deniz Öncü. After a good showing in warm-up, Carlos Tatay made an excellent start from 16th on the grid, to exchange places with Acosta early on.

Rodrigo kept in control at the front for the next couple of laps and while the threat from Binder and Suzuki in particular was ever present, it was his own mistake that took him out of contention with a big high side at cursed turn 7 on lap 5. The ensuing chaos left Öncü in charge of the pack and Acostra picking up the role of the main challenger. Binder, Migno and Suzuki kept a close eye on proceedings in a sizeable lead group.

Acosta first picked up the lead on lap 8 and although Binder quickly changed, the Honda man was surrounded by KTM machines eager to make his life difficult. The top end of the lead group was a KTM invasion, with Öncü, Acosta, Masia, Sasaki and the undercover KTM of Fenati, while Binder and Migno were the most prominent of the Hondas. Sergio Garcia, Suzuki and Tatay were also in the lead group, just ahead of Alcoba, who kept close to the top ten despite his double long lap roadtrip. Things got even more frantic mid-race, with track limits infringements all round and even more long lap penalties dished out. The next big victim in the lead group was poleman Suzuki, who crashed out at turn 2 with 10 laps remaining, in yet another heart-breaking DNF for last year’s victor.

Öncü, Acosta and Masia were an orange blur exchanging places at the front of the pack for the next few laps, while the likes of Fenati, Binder, Sasaki and Migno bided their time to break the Red Bull party. Artigas dropped over a second behind the leading group, leading the chasing pack including the likes of Tatay, Alcoba, Garcia and Antonelli, who had to pick up the pace if they wanted a whiff at the podium.

When a gaggle of KTMs battle, a Husqvarna apparently ends up on top, with Fenati picking up the lead at turn 6 with 7 laps remaining and fighting off Acosta, Öncü, Masia and Sasaki for the next couple of laps. Öncü was the feistiest of the lot in the closing stages, which also cost him a track limits warning but the Turkish rider retook control of the leading group for the final five laps. The shenanigans at the front also allowed a few of the men behind to join the battle, including Tatay and Alcoba, although the Avintia rider was soon slapped with another long lap penalty for exceeding track limits.

The KTM familia of Acosta, Fenati and Öncü continued to exchange top spot for the final four laps, with Masia keeping a bit more quiet right behind them. Öncü spent the most time in the limelight out of the foursome but was unable to stretch a gap at the front. A shaky moment for Acosta with two laps remaining put him and Fenati on the backfoot but the duo quickly bridged the four tenths gap and the Spaniard soon picked up the lead with a fine move at turn six, that got him past both Masia and Öncü on the final lap.

Acosta was faultless to the finish line but things got predictably frantic at the final turn, where an over enthusiastic Öncü crashed and picked up Masia and Binder, the trio ending up in the gravel. The end result was that Fenati and Alcoba inherited the remaining podium positions, Migno missing out by two hundredths of a second after spending the final part of the race more as a passive observer. Sasaki completed the top five, while Tatay, Dupasquier, Antonelli, Artigas and Yamanaka rounded out the top ten positions.

Another phenomenal victory for exceptional rookie Acosta extends his championship lead to an impressive 51 points from Antonelli, with Migno another 2 points back. Fenati jumps six positions to fourth, 55 points behind the leader, while Masia is a painful 56 points behind his teammate.

2021 Jerez Moto2 Warm Up Result: Di Giannantonio Leads Red Flagged Session

In a chilly morning in Jerez, Fabio Di Giannantonio narrowly led the way from Sam Lowes after a red flag delay caused by the air-fence at infamous turn 7 having to be redeployed following a crash for Celestino Vietti. The Italian was unharmed, unlike his machine, and the same gravel trap saw action once more, when Jake Dixon later suffered a crash and walked away but was taken for a medical check.

2021 Jerez MotoE E-Pole Result: As Fast As Ever

The final qualifying session of the day was perhaps the most easily predictable pole of the lot but the E-Pole format does tend to throw in the occasional surprise. Eric Granado taking pole was hardly a surprise after the speed he showed in practice and testing and despite a bit of a moment at the final turn, his advantage was big enough that he could afford that and still took pole by two tenths of a second. Lukas Tulovic was the second fastest man of the afternoon and perhaps the big surprise of the front row was rookie Fermín Aldeguer, who ended the session quicker than the other big favourite from practice, Dominique Aegerter. The Swiss rider opens row two ahead of Alessandro Zaccone and reigning cup winner Jordi Torres.

Mattia Casadei, Xavi Cardelus and Maria Herrera make up row three, with Miquel Pons joining the top ten for his first qualifying in the class. Matteo Ferrari, the first cup victor in 2019, made a pretty unlucky start in Jerez, exceeding track limits on his E-Pole lap and having to start from the back of the grid.
