Brno.Tom Lüthi (CarXpert Interwetten) took a near-perfect win in a shortened six-lap sprint for the Moto2™ field in the Czech GP, carving out a five second advantage in almost the same number of laps to head Alex Marquez (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) across the line. Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo) completed the podium, with Championship leader Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) coming home in P8.
Marini took P4 ahead of Vierge in their best ever results, with Corsi behind and able to create some fresh air between himself and Bagnaia. Holding onto P8 all eyes were on Morbidelli, but he managed to salvage some solid points on the tough sprint to the finish. Completing the top ten were two more candidates for joining Lüthi for ride of the day, with Remy Gardner (Tech 3 Racing) charging up into ninth to impress for his best ever result – but in tenth was an incredible debut. Joe Roberts (AGR Team), in his first ever Moto2™ World Championship race, moved up from P28 to take P10 and his first six points - an unbelievable rookie ride for which FP1’s wet pace laid the foundations.
Simone Corsi: 6th
“In the first part of the race I felt unstable because the track conditions were terrible to me. Fortunately, they stopped the race for the rain. In the wet the feeling has definitely increased and I managed to recover ten positions by placing sixth at the end of the race. I’m sure I could have done much more with some laps more”.
Andrea Locatelli: 13th
“Strange race, before on the dry and then on the wet. We got some points but I'm not satisfied because I struggled a bit. Now we continue to work in sight of Austria”.
Xavier Siméon: 23rd
“It has been an extremely complicated weekend for me, sincerely I didn't expect to find myself in difficulty like happened. When the Direction interrupted the race I was sure I had recovered good positions. But I wasn't so fast, even if wet races are one of my strength. I can't understand why we're so skittish, we must work to understand the reason why as soon as possible"
Augusto Fernandez: 27th
“It was not an easy weekend. Friday we started well in both conditions, wet and dry, but then we were not able to improve. Today I missed the feeling in both parts of the race and I didn’t want to risk the crash in case of pushing more because the point zone was still far from my position. We will do better in Austria!”
