2016 Mugello Moto2 Race Results: Restart Chaos

Moto2 ran for three complete laps before a red flag was brought out for a deflated safety fence. The quick restart procedure was brought into play but eight riders missed the one minute window to get on to the track and were forced to start from the pit lane.
