Raúl Fernández is willing to put a lot of emotion into the last part of the Moto2 World Championship. The Spanish rider has won another race at Misano, this time in a very cerebral way, biding his time and changing the pace in the last laps so as not to give Remy Gardner and Arón Canet any options.
Gardner has returned to running a race from less to more, finishing very close to Fernández on the last lap, but he got a scare of fear that made him settle for second place. Are 34 points of advantage that right now the Australian has with respect to his teammate in the world championship general.
Canet returns to the Moto2 podium with the Boscoscuro
At the exit Rául Fernández kept the first position ahead of Sam Lowes. Remy Gardner lost some positions, falling to sixth, even behind Arón Canet. Marco Bezzecchi and Xavi Vierge were also in a leading group that was closed by Augusto Fernández, glued to Gardner.
Lowes started shooting and opened a half-second lead, so Canet moved fast and overtook Fernandez. It seemed that the Boscoscuro rider believed he had enough pace to fight for his first Moto2 victory. Gardner surpassed Vierge and was already within shot of Fernández, the other contender for the title.
Canet took the lead and was doing his best run in the intermediate category. In fact, Lowes was sneaking in, wasting time and showing that he was very hung up.. Raúl Fernández seemed the great alternative to Canet, the only one who stuck to his slipstream. Whether there was a group or not would depend on Canet's rhythm.
A few drops were starting to fall on the circuit with four drivers in the leading group, including Lowes and Gardner. Raúl Fernández expected to move to put himself in the first position just in case the race stopped. Gardner was also ahead of Lowes in a very risky maneuver.
Raúl Fernández changed the rhythm and wanted to go alone for victory, but Canet was the only one who gave the feeling of wanting to answer. But he couldn't and after a few laps of maximum effort he had to give in. Canet and Gardner were left fighting for the second position and Raúl Fernández left alone for another victory.
Victory for Raúl Fernández ahead of Remy Gardner to continue adding excitement to the world title fight. Third position for Canet, who at least saved a podium with the Boscoscuro and was close to Gardner until the last lap. Finally Lowes has been fourth.
