The last event of the Asian Triptych gives us three intense races, with the threatening rain falling during lower class trials, but ultimately only affecting the top class.

Moto3

In a Moto3 where the World games are already made, the new World Champion Joan Mir demonstrates once again his desire to win.

Starting from the pole position, the Mallorcan rider is immediately forced to follow Jorge Martin who, better off from the second box, takes the lead. During the eighth lap begins the fight between Mir, Martin and Bastianini for the first position.

The battle was then won by Mir who managed to bring home the tenth seasonal success. Second place for the Team Del Conca Gresini rider on a Bastianini (third) never resigned but who makes a mistake a few laps from the end that get him far from Martin.

Moto2

With the rain that gets more and more imminent, the Moto2 race starts with the world’s verdict already written. Luthi, due to the incident suffered during the tests is declared unfit for the race, so Morbidelli is mathematically World Champion.

An Italian driver did not win the World Championship since 2009 with Rossi in MotoGP, and in the middle class even since 2008 when the winner was the unforgettable Marco Simoncelli.

Quick start from the second box by Oliveira, leading the race from the first to the last corner. The Red Bull Racing Team Portuguese rider was seeking the third place in the world champion with Alex Marquez, divided by a single-point in the World ranking. But the falls of Marquez and the resulting retirement give mathematical certainty to Oliveira about the third place.

First place in race never in question then, with the other riders battling for the rest of the podium. First the Morbidelli-Bagnaia and then the Morbidelli-Binder duels animate the race, with the South African rider who got the better of the Italian.

A great race for Brad Binder (picture) Brad Binder, who started from the third row and succeeded in repositioning one position behind the other and closing second. A superb season finale for Brad and this great success after the one he got just seven days ago at Phillip Island, demonstrates all the quality of the South African Rookie.

 

MotoGP

In MotoGP is obviously the World duel between leader Marquez and Dovizioso to hold the stage. As we said, the rain began to fall shortly before the race and change the game, forcing teams to review tires and strategies.

Slow start for Pedrosa from the pole and he’s overtaken by Zarco, Marquez, Dovizioso and Lorenzo. Zarco seems to have a greater pace and gets a great advantage in the first laps, but then the followers approach him and the first one to overtake the French rider is Lorenzo.

Behind, Marquez and Dovizioso get the third and fourth position with the Italian rider who in the end has the best. At this point Dovizioso must absolutely overcome Zarco and his Ducati teammate if he wants to still have some chance of winning the World Championship.

He finally gets it and this allows him to take home the 25 points that take the Championship fight down to Valencia Gp.

Marquez finishes fourth, managing a focused race to bring home the best possible result without any risk.

At this point everything will be decided in two weeks in Valencia, Marquez leads by 21 points but…never say ever.

See you on 12 November, we look forward to…stay tuned!
