Tito Rabat took the lead at the beginning of the Moto2 Grand Prix and he never let go, finishing two seconds ahead of the pack. Rabat's second win of the year out of three races solidified his championship lead to 28 points over Mika Kallio.
A delighted Xaxier Simeon finished second at the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit for his best-ever Moto2 showing. Luis Salom took third, three seconds behind the leader, after a race-long battle with Simone Corsi. Dominique Aegerter, who was fighting for a podium position early, also slipped by Corsi on the final lap to grab fourth. Corsi's fifth was his third fifth place of the season (but, as consolation, it moved him from fifth to fourth in the championship standings).
At eight seconds from the leader was Alex De Angelis (6th) followed by Kallio, Rabat's teammate and the second in the championship. Sam Lowes (8th), Sandro Cortese (9th) and Jordi Torres (10th) rounded out the top 10.
And where was Maverick Vinales, winner of the Texas round? Vinales low-sided early in the race to crash out while running among the leaders. He remounted but the bike was too damaged to continue. The result dropped Vinales from second to third in the chanpionship.
