2010 Mugello Moto2 Race Result - Dominant Win, Huge Battle For Second

Results and summary of the Moto2 race at Mugello:

Andrea Iannone raised the spirits of the Italian crowd at Mugello by taking a dominant victory in the Moto2 class. The FIMMCO Speed Up rider had the race won just about from the line. Iannone got into the first corner ahead of the pack, and while the rest scrapped over 2nd place, the Italian built up an unassailable lead over the early laps to brng his Speed Up bike - which uses a frame produced by Buckinghamshire manufacturer FTR - home completely unchallenged.

If the victory was relatively simple and clear, the battle for 2nd was epic, and only settled on the final lap. A large group containing Iannone's teammate Gabor Talmacsi, Toni Elias, Shoya Tomizawa, Alex Debon, Thomas Luthi, Sergio Gadea and Jules Cluzel. Cluzel was the first to drop out, crashing out on lap 5, but his place was taken later in the race by Simone Corsi who had fought his way brilliantly through the group from 26th on the grid.

With positions 2 through 6 swapping on a frighteningly regular basis, it was clear that 2nd would only be settled at the line. In the final part of the track, the fight came down to Sergo Gadea and Simone Corsi. Gadea took 2nd at Palagio, Corsi dived underneath into the final corner at Bucine, but Gadea swung out of Corsi's slipstream and catapulted head of Corsi to take 2nd across the line, leaving Corsi in 3rd and Luthi in 4th.
