Ogura continues to close the gap and takes Ramirez tenth by tenth. He receives a dashboard message informing him how fast he has to drive. Can he last through the last three rounds? Its getting close.

Meanwhile, mass is being said in the front. Aldeguer is 7.3 seconds ahead of Acosta. He is again three and a half seconds ahead of Ramirez.

Moto2: starting grid

Next up are 17 rounds in Moto2. And the World Cup decision could already be made here. Pedro Acosta has to finish at least fourth to take the title – no matter where Tony Arbolino ends up in that case.

Only one position separates the two on the starting grid. Acosta starts the race from sixth place and Arbolino from seventh place. Fermin Aldeguer is on pole and shares row one with Celestino Vietti and Manuel Gonzalez. Row two belongs to Aron Canet, Marcos Ramirez and Acosta. However, Canet has to complete a long lap.

Veijer: “Had to attack Sasaki”

Collin Veijer (Intact-Husqvarna; 1.): “I don’t even know what to say. At the moment I just feel great, but also very tired. It was a great race in which I tried to stay at the front the whole time. There was a point in time I simply had to attack my teammate, otherwise a whole group of drivers would have overtaken me.”

“It finally worked out for our team with a 1-2 win. I’m very happy about that. Many thanks to the team, to the crew chief, to the data engineers and last but not least to the mechanics and to Peter [Öttl]that they are always a help to me. Many thanks also to my family, friends and sponsors, just everyone.”


Sasaki: “I didn’t expect that”

Ayumu Sasaki (Intact-Husqvarna; 2nd): “I think I drove a strong race. I was the one who controlled the pace while managing the tires. I knew that Masia and my teammate were behind me.”

“On the last lap I looked at the big monitor before turn 8 and saw that my teammate was second. I didn’t expect him to overtake me in turn 9. That’s why I didn’t brake on the last groove of this turn. With second place, I still reduced the gap in the World Championship. We still have two races ahead of us. I’ll give my maximum there.”


Masia was taciturn after third place

Jaume Masia (Leopard-Honda; 3.): “Well, that was a really difficult race in which I felt pretty alone in the group (with the Husqvarnas, editor’s note). I would just like to thank my team.”
