2019 Misano Moto3 Race Result: Some Things Are Worth Waiting For

old_url: 

Misano turned up the heat for race day, quite literally, and the lightweight class action had to match. Mission accomplished as far as the SIC58 squad was concerned, a jubilant Paolo Simoncelli celebrating a precious home win and a long overdue first win for Tatsuki Suzuki. The Japanese rider led the way for most the race and responded brilliantly to every challenge thrown his way. One of those came from John McPhee, although the Petronas rider only really popped up in the podium battle on the final lap and snatched a surprise second place from Tony Arbolino. The Italian continues an excellent podium run and is getting ever nearer in the title battle.

Suzuki had made a great start from pole position, while Arbolino found his way past Aron Canet into turn one. Meanwhile, Lorenzo Dalla Porta lost a couple of places at the start and had to make progress from 9th spot. While the championship leader was looking for a way around Andrea Migno, all eyes were on another Italian, Arbolino starting lap two in the lead from Suzuki and Canet. After an early mistake from Arbolino, the poleman found his way back around turn 14 by the end of that same lap.

Despite all the attention being on the trio ahead and the couple of early crashes from the likes of Alonso Lopez and Albert Arenas, the lead pack was still significant, 15 men still in it at the end of lap three. More drama was to come and reduce the numbers amongst the leaders, most significantly on lap four, when Niccolo Antonelli high-sided at turn five and brought Celestino Vietti down with him, while Canet’s machine suffered a failure and the Spaniard had to retreat to the pits while gesticulating his justifiable disappointment.

At the start of lap six, Suzuki was still showing the way to Arbolino, who bided his time for an assault. Meanwhile, Dalla Porta was looking to dig the knife into Canet’s championship chances but the Leopard man had to find one second to catch up on the two leaders while also fending off a sizeable group including Migno, Dennis Foggia, Gabriel Rodrigo, Ai Ogura, McPhee, Marcos Ramirez and Filip Salac. The two groups merged by lap 10, Jaume Masia starting to show some podium intentions after keeping quiet around 5th spot for the first half of the race. As if Dalla Porta didn’t have enough on his plate with the two WWR men assaulting him from all sides, he was also threatened with a track limits warning one lap later.

As the race was entering its second half, Suzuki looked confident at the front and the fast pace of the top men split the lead pack in two, the select few keeping in the victory battle including Arbolino, Dalla Porta, Migno and Masia. A second and a half down the road, Foggia and Ogura were tasked with leading the pursuit including the likes of McPhee and Rodrigo.

With nine laps left, a faultless Suzuki was starting to stretch a gap at the front, little over half a second but the biggest the gap had been until that point. The near tackles between Dalla Porta, Arbolino and the WWR teammates helped his case too but he had eight long laps ahead to defend that lead from a wolf pack. To add to the peril, Ogura and McPhee tagged along to the chasers and immediately started to make victims. The hurry-up saw Masia find a couple of tenths to close up on Suzuki and looked like the polenan’s main threat.

Masia first took the lead at turn one with six laps left and Suzuki found himself on the offensive for the first time since lap 1. The challenge got even bigger when Arbolino got past Suzuki one lap later and compatriot Ogura was looking menacing behind. Things got spicy with three laps left, when Arbolino attacked in turn 12 and the move pushed Masia all the way to the back of the pack. Despite Arbolino briefly taking the lead, Suzuki found himself showing the way once again as the race entered the final lap.

Ogura and Migno were victims of last lap shenanigans at Quercia but Suzuki was unbothered at the front, despite rivals being glued to his tail. McPhee suddenly found himself in podium contention for the first time on the final lap, attacking Arbolino in turn 13 and making it stick to the finish line. Masia missed out on the podium and finished fourth, ahead of Foggia. The young Italian was helped by a three-second post-race penalty being applied to Dalla Porta, the championship leader finishing fifth but dropping to eighth after several track limits infringements. Rodrigo did the best he could from his shocking qualifying position and his best was good enough for sixth, narrowly ahead of Ramirez.

Dalla Porta continues to lead the championship battle but threw away valuable points with the penalty and reduced Canet’s suffering. The Italian now leads by 22 points from Canet and with Arbolino becoming an ever bigger threat, 30 points behind the leader.

2019 Misano MotoE Race 2 Result: A Second Serving Of Excitement

old_url: 

After the shenanigans of Race 1 in Misano, the MotoE class’ second outing promised a lot and delivered on par. Things were perhaps a bit more settled, with fewer crashes and incidents, but not short on overtakes and battles for the podium. Matteo Ferrari achieved a precious double on home soil, the Italian dominating Sunday’s race and increasing his lead in the championship. Hector Garzo was best of the rest but 2.6 seconds behind the winner, while Mattia Casadei secured his first podium in the class on the final lap.

The start had painted a different picture, with poleman De Angelis holding position into turn one ahead of Ferrari and with a great start from Maria Herrera to join the leaders' lineup. Front row starter Xavier Simeon did not make it past turn two and avoiding action from his high-side lost championship contenders Mike di Meglio and Bradley Smith some ground too.

Ferrari attacked the poleman at the start of lap two with an excellent move on the outside of De Angelis in turn two and Saturday’s victor was stretching a gap almost immediately. By lap three, the Italian had a five-man (and lady) group in hot pursuit, including Garzo, Nicolo Canepa, Herrera, Casadei and De Angelis. As the podium battle was heating up, Ferrari took off by over a second by lap four. The first to blink was de Angelis, the Pramac rider losing ground on the chasing pack and soon crashing out at turn 13 with three laps remaining.

Ferrari looked secure with a two seconds lead at the start of the final lap but Garzo had a lot of work to defend second from Canepa, Herrera and Casadei. Casadei shortly claimed second at turn 15 but Garzo found his way back past and the Italian had to make do with third at the line. Canepa missed out on the podium by five hundredths of a second, while Herrera improved one place from Race 1. However, the drama was not over at the checkered flag, Garzo under investigation for his trip on the green paint at turn 11 on the final lap but the Spaniard was eventually allowed to lift his trophy on the podium.

Ferrari’s success increases his advantage in the world cup to 19 points ahead of Garzo. Smith and Di Meglio follow, 24 and 25 points down on the leader. Despite being one of the favourites for the championship from the start, Niki Tuuli could not complete his weekend in Misano after a fractured femur and wrist in Saturday’s accident.

2019 Misano MotoE Race 1 Result: Drama Packed First Outing

old_url: 

The first race of the Misano double header for the MotoE class set the bar quite high in terms of both action and drama. The excitement concluded with a popular home win for Matteo Ferrari, who rode an impeccable final lap to fend off Hector Garzo and Xavier Simeon and take the reins of the championship.

Poleman Alex De Angelis held position at the start from fellow front row starters Ferrari and Simeon, with a few shuffles behind as Maria Herrera took it upon herself to chase the three leaders. Despite a disappointing E-Pole session, the likes of Niki Tuuli and Mike Di Meglio were making good progress at the start. However, Di Meglio quickly suffered some technical niggles that sent him to the sidelines to watch his championship lead slip away with every lap.

De Angelis was undisturbed going into lap two while Simeon and Ferrari were swapping paint behind him. Another twist in the championship tale came soon after, when Bradley Smith, Mattia Casadei and Tuuli tangled and did not see the end of lap two. Smith was able to rejoin but points looked far from his reach.

Simeon first attacked for the lead on lap three but it was under yellow flags while Tuuli was being stretchered away so he had to give the place back. Before the Belgian got the memo, the shenanigans were getting quite spectacular and De Angelis was the first to blink, high-siding out of turn five. Soon after, Eric Granado – who had made an excellent start from his lowly grid position – also left the podium battle out of fourth place, leaving Garzo in a pretty safe third spot and pushing to catch up with the two leaders.

Ferrari made what turned out to be his race winning overtake into Quercia, after which things calmed down for a couple of laps, Simeon and Garzo waiting for the right time to pounce on the leader. The Italian started the final lap in the lead and defended excellently to the checkered flag. He was aided slightly by Garzo attacking Simeon into Curvone and holding on to second ahead of the Belgian. Jesko Raffin crossed the finish line two seconds later in fourth, with Niccolo Canepa rounding out the top five.

Ferrari’s victory sees him take over the championship standings by two points from Simeon, with Di Meglio dropping to third ahead of Smith but with plenty of points still on offer even for the rest of the challengers.

2019 Misano Moto2 Qualifying Result: First Time First

old_url: 

After fairly eventful qualifying sessions for their colleagues, the intermediate class had some surprised in store as well. It wasn’t much of a surprise to see the championship leader taking control of the session at the start of Q2 but then rookie Fabio Di Giannantonio turned promise into reality by snatching his first career pole position and respective Tissot watch.

Alex Marquez did not need to improve on his early benchmark to stay on the front row but with a significant threat coming from Augusto Fernandez, his compatriot lining up third on the grid.

Remy Gardner missed out of the front row by less than two hundredths of a second and pole by a mere tenth and a half. Teammate Tetsuta Nagashima started his weekend in excellent form and lost a tiny bit of that throughout but that only means a second row start, ahead of Xavi Vierge, despite a late crash for the Marc VDS man.

Tom Luthi led proceedings very briefly but had to make do with a third row start, where he will be joined by Sam Lowes and Q1 escapee Marco Bezzecchi. Rookie Enea Bastianini rounded out the top ten and opens row four ahead of teammate Andrea Locatelli and compatriot Luca Marini – the SKY racer the first to get promoted through Q1.

2019 Misano MotoGP Qualifying Result: Predictable, Yet Exciting

Yamaha came into qualifying in Misano with great expectations after their display all throughout practice and Marc Marquez’s prediction for pole came to fruition when Maverick Viñales timed it to perfection to snatch his first pole position since the first race of the year. It looked like a hat-trick for the Japanese squad for a while but then Pol Espargaro popped up on the back of Fabio Quartararo on a hot lap and brought home his first front row start for KTM. It even looked like pole for a short while, but second will do, splitting the Yamahas on the first row. Quartararo started the session as favourite by posting the fastest time of the weekend on his first flying lap, despite one of the by-now-usual wobbles on board of his Yamaha. However, the Frenchman could not improve on his final run despite several red hot sectors and made do with third.

Teammate Franco Morbidelli continued to improve throughout the weekend and overcame a huge rear tyre slide on what looked like a pole lap to settle for fourth. Meanwhile, Marquez lost a couple of laps keen to ward off rivals from a tow but that didn’t stop him from attempting a classic two-stop strategy. The plan did not seem to work as well as normal, as the Spaniard got demoted from the front row and found himself once again behind Valentino Rossi for their final flying laps. Neither rider wanted to show the other around and once they decided to get a move on, they got in each other’s way up until the checkered flag. The cat and mouse game left Marquez with his worst, well, “worst”, qualifying of the season in fifth, while Rossi lost a place to Andrea Dovizioso, the Ducati finding some pace to climb to sixth.

Rossi opens row three, ahead of the miracle worker of Q1, Johann Zarco, who put both KTMs in Q2 and ahead of the top Suzuki. Alex Rins will be disappointed with ninth after a fairly decent showing on Saturday morning practice, while teammate Joan Mir impressed on his return from injury by getting through Q1 and qualifying 10th, only one place behind Rins. Takaaki Nakagami and Michele Pirro complete the fourth row, over a second slower than the poleman.

Having a glance back at Q1, there were quite a few unusual victims there, Cal Crutchlow banished to 14th grid spot, Jack Miller down in 16th and Danilo Petrucci with his worst qualifying of the year in 17th. The two Ducatis will be joined on row six by Jorge Lorenzo.

2019 Misano MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Claims One Back From Yamaha

old_url: 

The premier class got their race pace waltz underway under the hot sun of Misano and it was the same names impressing at the top of the charts: countless Yamahas and Marc Marquez. The world champion might have bluffed of not about qualifying but he still found his way into top spot in FP4. After proving that he’s definitely in the game for the win with pretty excellent pace on the hard-medium combination, the hard front had enough in turn eight and sent Marquez to the service road. No harm done, other than a couple minutes of lost track time.

Maverick Viñales was back ahead of Fabio Quartararo, both Yamahas with great pace on the mediums and some wobbles – but definitely less eventful afternoons than the man ahead. Franco Morbidelli added yet another Yamaha to the top end in a pretty decent weekend for the Italian until this point. Alex Rins is steadily climbing up the list and the Spaniard separated the Yamaha brigade by demoting Valentino Rossi to sixth, with Pol Espargaro once again finding his way into the top ten in seventh position.

Andrea Dovizioso kept close in eight but still with plenty of speed to find, six tenths slower than Marquez. Jack Miller and Danilo Petrucci rounded out the top ten, positions Ducati won’t be too keen on. Meanwhile, Cal Crutchlow continues to struggle with the mix of Honda and lack of grip, the British rider down in 16th position.

2019 Misano Moto3 Qualifying Result: Risk Reaps Rewards

old_url: 

The first qualifying battle of the day was a battle against gravity for most of the two sessions. Baking hot, little grip and high stakes made a tricky blend for the lightweight class riders but Tatsuki Suzuki found the perfect balance to grab his first pole position at his SIC58 squad’s home race. The Japanese rider took a risky gamble by sitting out that final part of Q1 but then took his place at the top of Q2 early on and rivals failed to dethrone him.

Aron Canet came closest, the Spaniard leaving it late to set a lap but still coming one tenth away from pole. Tony Arbolino is starting to show up his face at the sharp end as the weekend progresses and joined the front row of the grid. Jaume Masia also found some speed to claim fourth, ahead of a late charge that placed rookie Celestino Vietti fifth. Niccolo Antonelli led the way in Q1 but his teammate stole his thunder in Q2, leaving the Italian sixth.

Lorenzo Dalla Porta was probably fearing the worst when he felt his front tyre sliding in turn nine, the tumble making him miss the final seven minutes of qualifying, but he only lost two places to seventh spot. Albert Arenas could not quite match his Friday heroics but still snatched a sensible third row, in the middle of a Leopard Racing mix, behind the championship leader and ahead of Marcos Ramirez.

The two most unlucky men of qualifying were Gabriel Rodrigo and Romano Fenati. The Gresini man showed great speed in FP3 but went from hero to zero when both of his fastest laps got cancelled for exceeding track limits in Q2 and will start 16th. Fenati starts another two places back after crashes in both Q1 and Q2.
