Joe Roberts (Italtrans Racing Team, in the front) and Remy Gardner (Red Bull Ajo Kalex) were the two men with the strongest finishes in the Moto2 GP of Italy, but only one was rewarded for it.

Exciting Moto2 race against a tragic background

For Sam Lowes it was another weekend to forget when the Lincoln man, like his brother Alex yesterday, crashed out of the race. Until shortly before the end of the race, the race was led by Raul Fernandez, who was sometimes more than a second ahead of his pursuers with Lowes in the lead. But on the very last lap, his team-mate Remy Gardner pulled up and passed the Spanish rookie a few corners before the finish and won the sixth race of the season. With his first win of the season, the Australian World Cup leader naturally extended his lead in the intermediate ranking. The mood was depressed after the race, however, as Jason Dupasquier’s death was only announced shortly before after his tragic accident on Saturday.

Remy Gardner – the son of 500 cc World Champion Wayne from Australia, won his first race of the season and extended his world championship lead.

Joe Roberts cheated of 3rd place by the stewards
Third place was also a few meters up to the checkered flag, and it was Joe Roberts, who felt he was razor thinly ahead of Bezzecchi as third. But the US boy did not expect the sneaky FIM regulations, which is why he was relegated to P4. A safe crossing of the green marking by a few centimeters gave these officials the opportunity to play God again and to prove their importance in front of the public. Everyone should think what they want, but many observers do not understand such rules and find them absolutely nonsensical, including many drivers. Of course, Joe Roberts felt cheated out of 3rd place by the stewards afterwards, which at least we can absolutely understand.
