2021 Misano MotoE Race 1 Result: Last Lap Roulette

A dry but not all that sunny Misano Circuit set the stage for the first opportunity to wrap up the MotoE title, but that flew right out the window on the very first lap, when Alessandro Zaccone crashed at turn 3 after a slow start. The incident also allowed a fast starting Jordi Torres and Mattia Casadei to escape at the front, with the Italian taking the lead by the end of lap 1. Dominique Aegerter didn’t take too long to join the leaders and made a move for the lead by the end of lap 2, while Eric Granado was looking to replicate that, seven tenths of a second down the road.

Despite a track limits warning, Aegerter was pushing to keep Torres away and the exchanges at the front of the race allowed Granado to catch up and join the victory battle. By lap 5, the three remaining title contenders were engaged in direct battle, with Casadei tagging along but letting them fight it out for now.

Aegerter held onto the lead for the final 3 laps and defended his position beautifully, while Torres tried to find the best opportunity to challenge him. However, a mistake at turn 14 saw the Spaniard touch the leader’s rear wheel and run wide, dropping down to 4th and letting Granado have a go at Aegerter. The Brazilian took the last chance he had at the final corner but it didn’t prove to be the best idea, as Granado lost the front right in front of Aegerter and threw all the good work away. The Swiss rider did well to avoid getting tangled in the crash but it lost him some momentum and allowed Torres to catch up and beat him to the finish line. Casadei inherited the final podium position, with Matteo Ferrari taking the chequered flag two seconds later, ahead of the LCR duo of Miquel Pons and Kevin Zannoni.

The reigning cup champion is back in prime position in the title standings heading into the final battle tomorrow afternoon, with Aegerter as his main rival, 8 points back. The unfortunate crashes for Zaccone and Granado leave them with 17 and 24 points to recover with one race left, although the Italian's participation looks uncertain after needing a visit to the medical centre.

2021 Catalunya World Superbike Race One Result: Be Careful What You Wish For?

The rain decided to make an appearance for Saturday's World Superbike race, with no riders having any lap time in the wet this weekend. Riders and teams made their tyre choices on the grid before the rain stopped. The pit intervention time is a minimum of sixty six seconds for the Superbike race. The air was 23ºC and the track was 27ºC, providing the cool weather the Ducatis wished for, but not in the way they wanted.

Garrett Gerloff missed the start, hitting white paint on an apex on his way to the grid, trashing the front of his bike. He held his arms to the sky and shouted, distraught as the marshals moved his bike to safety, its special white livery ruined. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu, also in celebratory white livery, got the hole shot down the long straight, ahead of Andrea Locatelli and Michael Ruben Rinaldi as Tom Sykes dropped backwards on one wheel. A few turns in, Jonathan Rea passed Rinaldi and Locatelli in one corner to take second behind Razgatlioglu. Jonathan Rea passed Toprak Razgatlioglu before the first lap ended, but Razgatlioglu took the lead into turn one. Rea took it back a turn or two later.

Axel Bassani from eleventh on the grid on his Ducati worked his way past Michael Ruben Rinaldi to take third place as Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap with a 1'57.362. Michael van der Mark sat in fourth place ahead of the usuall battle between Andrea Locatelli and Alex Lowes. Bassani took second place off Razgatlioglu into turn nine, and Razgatlioglu took it back into turn eleven. After swapping places a few times, Razgatlioglu took second place back into turn one on the brakes over two seconds off Jonathan Rea who set another fastest lap with a 1'56.847.

Axel Bassani took second into turn nine and lost it to Razgatlioglu again into turn eleven. And they swapped again into the last two corners with Razgatlioglu taking second place into turn one again, over two seconds behind Jonathan Rea. Michael Ruben Rinaldi fought off Michael van der Mark for fourth place and at the start of lap six Rinaldi led Lowes, van der Mark, Leon Haslam and Andrea Locatelli, only for Tom Sykes to join in and take eighth place from Locatelli. Razgatlioglu set a 1'56.777 for the fastest lap as Scott Redding took eighth from Sykes and Locatelli. 

Axel Bassani held second place after passing Razgatlioglu on lap six, two and a half seconds behind Jonathan Rea. Leon Haslam set a 1'56.613 fastest lap in seventh position. Michael van der Mark made an outside pass on Alex Lowes and took Michael Ruben Rinaldi a turn later for fourth place, two seconds behind Razgatlioglu. Razgatlioglu set the fastest lap on lap seven with a 1'56.544, closing on Axel Bassani ad looking for a way past.

Toprak Razgatlioglu closed on Bassani into corners, trying to find a line underneath him on a tighter turn, but he couldn't make anything work. Michael van der Mark in fourth place set a 1'56.259 just over a second behind Razgatlioglu and Bassani and clear of Alex Lowes, Michael Ruben Rinaldi, Leon Haslam and Scott Redding. After van der Mark set a 1'56.236 fastest lap, Razgatlioglu finessed the front brake to cleanly pass Bassani into a wet turn one. Razgatlioglu closed to just over a second from Jonathan Rea, lapping at three quarters of a second quicker than the leader.

At half race distance, Jonathan Rea led Toprak Razgatlioglu and Axel Bassani by six tenths of a second. Michael van der Mark was just nine tenths off the podium, under two seconds from Rea in first. A lap later, razgatlioglu was under a tenth behind Rea as the two started their duel. Razgatlioglu tried to pass into turn one of lap twelve, but only made it work into turn four. 

In spite of Razgatlioglu having a faster pace, Rea wouldn't let him escape and they were separated by only half a second, but Axel Bassani saw a chance and took second place from Rea into turn one, chasing Razgatlioglu in the wet. Michael Ruben Rinaldi set a 1'56.183 to take the fastest lap as the Ducatis started to hit their stride. On lap thirteen, the three Ducatis on track were three of the fastest four bikes, with Alvaro Bautista in tenth place the other fastest. 

Michael van der Mark started troubling Jonathan Rea whose pace was the slowest of the leading eight riders. As Axel Bassani closed on Toprak Razgatlioglu, Razgatlioglu looked over his shoulder and sat his bike up, riding off the track with a mechanical failure. 

Michael Ruben Rinaldi closed on Jonathan Rea into the start of lap sixteen and shot past him to take second place into turn one. Scott Redding continued the march of the Ducatis to take fourth place from Michael van der Mark, swapping paint as they met, and then Redding caught and passed Rea to put Ducatis in the top three places. 

Lap seventeen and Axel Bassani led by eight tenths of a second over Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Scott Redding. Redding caught and passed Rinaldi and closed on Bassani at a few tenths a sector with less than four laps to go. Redding set the fastest lap with a 1'56.166, a new lap record, as he closed on the lead.

Halfway round lap eighteen, Scott Redding rode round Axel Bassani, exhibiting so much more grip and pace to take the lead. Nearly two seconds behind the three Ducatis, Jonathan Rea struggled with Michael van der Mark behind him, but the BMW was unable to pass the Kawasaki. 

At the start of the last lap, Scott Redding had a lead of almost two seconds over Axel Bassani and Michael Ruben Rinaldi. Jonathan Rea managed to put a second gap between himself and Michael van der Mark to secure a safe fourth place. 

Scott Redding won the wet race a second and a half clear of Axel Bassani and Michael Ruben Rinaldi, with Ducati locking out the podium for the first time in nine years. Jonathan Rea held on to fourth place ahead of Michael van der Mark and Alex Lowes. This was Redding's eleventh win in World Superbike and Bassani's first podium.

Jonathan Rea's fourth place puts him back in charge of the championship by just six points over Toprak Razgatlioglu as Scott Redding's win closed his gap to Razgatlioglu to forty seven points.

2021 Misano Moto2 Qualifying Result: Making A Late Statement

Rain flags started waving as soon as the lights in pitlane turned green for Q1 but conditions quickly improved for Q2 and throughout the session, so the lead changed hands quite a bit over 15 minutes. Remy Gardner and Sam Lowes put in their bid for pole early on but Raul Fernandez proved to be one step ahead once more, the rookie securing his fifth pole position of the season on his final flying lap. Only Lowes managed to finish within half a second of the poleman but namesake Augusto Fernandez will also join them on the front row of the grid, for the first time this season, dropping Gardner to 4th.

Alongside a solid fifth place on the grid, Aron Canet also provided a nice moment for the highlights reel with a save at turn 3 and will be joined by compatriot Jorge Navarro on row two. Xavi Vierge opens row three from home favourites Marco Bezzecchi and Fabio Di Giannantonio, while rookie Lorenzo Dalla Porta made the best of his somewhat lucky Q1 escape to climb onto row four, ahead of Nicolo Bulega and Ai Ogura. Marcel Schrotter leads row five from Q1 graduates Tom Luthi and Joe Roberts, while the fastest man in Q1, Celestino Vietti, will start 17th, in between Stefano Manzi and Somkiat Chantra, after timing his Q1 laps to perfection to escape the rain.

2021 Misano MotoGP Qualifying Result: Copy-Paste Contest

Although the sun was still shining through ahead of Q2, there were some dark clouds and a bit of a breeze sweeping in throughout the session. That would explain why the all-time lap record looked at risk quite early in the session and in the end, not even the record could cope with Pecco Bagnaia, the Aragon GP victor picking up pole position to go with it, in the final couple of minutes. Jack Miller made some late progress to join his teammate on the front row, while Fabio Quartararo tried to fight back for pole but a late tumble put stop to that and allowed a copy of last week’s front row.

Jorge Martin and teammate Johann Zarco climbing into the top 5 will make for a very Ducati-heavy first two rows, with Pol Espargaro a late intruder in 6th place. Some solid teamwork from Stefan Bradl helped Marc Marquez escape Q1 and the Spaniard managed up climb as high as 4th, but his attempt to follow Bagnaia’s tail on a hot lap cost him a crash at turn 9 and a demotion to 7th on the grid. The Honda man opens row three ahead of Aleix Espargaro, who also crashed while chasing Bagnaia, soon after his compatriot.

Despite some of their rivals’ gravel trip adventures, the Suzukis could not take advantage, both struggling in Q2. Alex Rins closed the third row of the grid, while a particularly unhappy Joan Mir was only 11th, starting in the middle of the fourth row, in between an impressive Maverick Vinales on only his second weekend on the Aprilia and a fast Enea Bastianini, the Italian strongest in Q1 and hindered by track limits and hairy moments in Q2. Takaaki Nakagami’s late Q1 tumble left him 13th on the grid, with Brad Binder as the lead KTM in 17th position, following his own crash while chasing the Hondas.

2021 Catalunya World Supersport Race One Result: The Rain In Spain?

World Supersport race one was 18 laps of a 33ºC track. David Sanchis Martinez started from the back of the grid due to a tyre pressure infringement.

However, things wouldn't go as planned.

Can Oncu pushed Randy Krummenacher out of line to take the lead into turn one as drops of rain hit the track. Randy Krummenacher was pushed down to tenth place and he fought through immediately to recover a few places. Manuel Gonzalez and Steven Odendaal followed Oncu over the line to start the second lap. Into a damp turn one, Can Oncu and Steven Odendaal missed the braking into turn one, handing the lead to Manuel Gonzalez as the rain got much, much worse, sweeping across the first half of the track.

The white and red rain flags were being waved and almost everyone pitted in to get new tyres. Much like last year, Loic Arbel and Shogo Kawasaki stayed out, but unlike race winner Andy Verdoia last year, staying out likely wouldn't pay off. Riders were not under pressure to quickly change tyres as there is a minimum intervention time in World Supersport. Manuel Gonzalez spent too long as his team dealt with an issue, however.

Steven Odendaal was the first of the riders to come out of the pits, skating around corners on wet weather tyres, thirty three seconds off Arbel's slick lap, with Philipp Oettl and Randy Krummenacher behind him. Verdoia crashed out with Eduardo Montero Huerta after getting new tyres, the pair ending their race in the gravel. 

Fastest laps started to pour in, with Randy Krummenacher and Manuel Gonzalez both setting fastest laps from fourth and tenth place. Loic Arbel in the lead was eleven seconds a lap slower than Steven Odendaal with just eleven seconds of a lead at the start of lap six. Randy Krummenacher was three seconds a lap quicker than Odendaal, passing Philipp Oettl on his way to third place.

Steven Odendaal rode cautiously as he closed on Loic Arbel, and Randy Krummenacher took second place off him as he started lap seven and Krummenacher tapped his rear seat a few times to tell Odendaal to tuck in for a tow instead of trying to pass. Odendaal couldn't keep up as Kruumenacher took the lead.

Steven Odendaal was the quickest in the pits and the reason was that his team was too quick, sending him out under the pit intervention limit which would make his place on track irrelevant as he would take a 25.845 second penalty at the flag, after the calculators came out. Philipp Oettl took a 1.995 second penalty for his missing the intervention time.

Manuel Gonzalez set a fastest lap of 1'59.914 on lap eight

At half race distance, Randy Krummenacher set the fastest lap until Raffaele De Rosa took it off him. Steven Odendaal and Philipp Oettl were sat in second and third place on track, with Manuel Gonzalez, Can Oncu and Raffaele De Rosa ahead of slick-tyres Loic Arbel, whose tyres were in better shape to take him to the end of the race. Randy Krummenacher then set a 1'58.428 for another fastest lap. Loic Arbel's lap in seventh place was under three seconds slower than the riders around him, as he set another personal best on slicks.

Another lap and another fastest lap by Randy Krummenacher over seven seconds in the lead. Second placed Steven Odendaal's penalty would put him in eleventh place at the flag. Twenty eighth placed Michel Fabrizio set a 1'54.006 to claim the fastest lap over a lap behind the leaders and a lap later, he set a 1'52.475 and a 1'49.275 to eventually Dunlap himself. 

The fight over fourth place was held between Manuel Gonzalez, Raffaele De Rosa and Can Oncu, but taking Odendaal's penalty into account, they were unknowingly fighting for the last spot of the podium. As Manuel Gonzalez closed on Philipp Oettl, he put himself into second place, in spite of being fourth on the track. He made it more official by passing Oettl. Oettl got caught in traffic after being overtaken and was passed by Oncu and De Rosa immediately. 

Loic Arbel started lapping at the speed his tyres had in them and climbed up to ninth place, closing on eighth. De Rosa and Oncu slapped their bikes together into turn one of lap sixteen, De Rosa having to fight to get fourth place back. 

Starting the last lap, Randy Krummenacher led Manuel Gonzalez by over sixteen seconds. Raffaele De Rosa was on Gonzalez's tail with Can Oncu two seconds behind. Manuel Gonzalez looked at ways past Steven Odendaal, but as he tried to pass the penalised rider, De Rosa took advantage to pass Gonzalez. De Rosa then passed Steven Odendaal and Gonzalez followed him through and pushed his way past De Rosa to take second place on track back. He held second place at the flag, but it was Randy Krummenacher who won by over sixteen seconds, demonstrating what he was capable of on a decent bike. Raffaele De Rosa rounded out the podium ahead of Can Oncu and Philipp Oettl. Loic Arbel's risk paid off with a sixth place.

Steven Odendaal's pit infringement pushed him back to eighth place, missing out on an opportunity to capitalise on Dominique Aegerter's absence. Aegerter leads the championship by fifty four points.

2021 Misano MotoGP FP4 Result: Quartararo Leads Rins

Premier class riders got a final opportunity to fine-tune their race setup after a rainy Friday and a time-chasing Saturday morning, although all the work might go to waste if the weather forecast for Sunday is as bad as expected. In the sunny FP4, Fabio Quartararo set the pace at the front, taking over top spot in the final handful of minutes and the Frenchman will be hoping for similar conditions on Sunday afternoon. A late charge from Alex Rins promoted him to second and dropped Pecco Bagnaia, the early leader of the session, down to third but only a tenth off top spot.

Johann Zarco added another Ducati to the mix, with Joan Mir making it a Suzuki double in the top 5 as well. Enea Bastianini continues to shine this time from 6th place and with solid pace, ahead of the Honda duo of Takaaki Nakagami and Marc Marquez – the Spaniard particularly keen on Mir’s Suzuki once more. Aleix Espargaro and Jack Miller rounded out the top 10 positions. Wildcard Michele Pirro missed out but was only half a second off the lead, with Maverick Vinales another tenth back in 12th position and ahead of Jorge Martin and Pol Espargaro.

2021 Misano Moto3 Qualifying Result: It’s Going Home

The weather stayed sunny and welcoming for the lightweight class qualifying sessions and the spectators had a little more than that to celebrate, with pole position disputed between some of the home favourites. The only man able to stop Dennis Foggia from getting his first Tissot was Romano Fenati, the class veteran timing his final flying lap to perfection to secure pole on home soil by a quarter of a second. After showing the way for much of Q2, Foggia dropped to second, while a twitch at the final corner cost Niccolo Antonelli a good chance at pole as well. Andrea Migno joins an all-Italian top 4 on tomorrow’s grid, with Jaume Masia and Xavier Artigas completing the second row of the grid.

Riccardo Rossi and Elia Bartolini added some more local flavour to third row, lining up alongside the championship leader, Pedro Acosta, eight tenths off to spot. Carlos Tatay aced Q1 on his way to 10th place and will be sharing fourth row with Stefano Nepa and Sergio Garcia. Row five was claimed by Ayumu Sasaki, Darryn Binder and a particularly impressive Matteo Bertelle, who sailed through Q1 to join the pole battle.

Not everyone was having as much fun in Q1, with the likes of John McPhee and Tatsuki Suzuki crashing early in the session. While the Petronas man’s early benchmark was only six hundredths of a second short of Q2, Suzuki did not get a chance to post a time and will start at the back of the grid. There were some notable absences on Saturday afternoon, with Deniz Oncu and Alberto Surra sitting out the sessions after big crashes in FP3 and Gabriel Rodrigo being declared unfit to race.
