Pol Espargaró flies in Moto2 and Sandro Cortese in Moto3 on the last day of testing in Cheste
Anonim

I already said it yesterday: "hopefully tomorrow we will see one of our own in the lead." And so it has been. Pol Espargaro has closed in a big way the third and last day of the official test in Cheste for the categories of Moto2 and Moto3. Thus, Polyccio has given us the joy of the day and has flown to get the best time of the Moto2 tests. For its part, Sandro Cortese he has followed his own, being the fastest and dominating the three days. Of course, today we have finally known the times of Maverick Viñales And guess what? Yes, he was second to just one tenth behind the German.

It should also be noted that the weather conditions today have been much better than the two previous days, with less wind and higher temperatures. And for the last time in these tests (how heavy I am…), I remember that the times are not official but those provided by the teams. And now yes, let's get down to business.

Moto3: Sandro Cortese leaves no room for doubt

What can we say about Sandro Cortese? Well, just congratulate him on these three days of testing in Valencia, where he was the fastest without any discussion and giving little margin to his rivals. Today he has lowered his chrono again, finally leaving him at an excellent 1’40.9 and showing that he feels very comfortable (too) on top of a KTM that he is showing very strong with all his pilots. The other name of the day has been Maverick Viñales, Of which we have finally been able to know what his rhythm was (there if I was wrong in the prediction), and that has left us much more calm knowing that he is where he belongs, among the best. Today he was second with a time of 1'41.0.

Third has been Alberto Moncayo, that he has lowered his time again and that he shows he will be one of the strong men in the new category. Fourth is over Danny Kent, who also seems to have taken a giant leap towards this 2012 and fifth Luis Salom, very regular among the top positions. Of the rest of Spaniards, highlight the seventh place in Hector Faubel and the eleventh of Efrén Vázquez.

Moto2: Pol Espargaró gets the best time in the tests

And we come to the joy of these tests in Valencia: Pol Espargaro has flown over the Ricardo Tormo circuit to take the fastest time of the three days, rolling below the official track record and beating Scott Redding, that had been intractable until now. The fact is that the clock has stopped at an impressive 1’35.4, and I have to admit that I am very happy that Pol finds his way again, after a very uneven 2011. Obviously, he is very happy and has declared that although these tests do not give points or races, it does help to gain confidence.

Behind was the aforementioned Redding, who is sure to leave equally happy after these tests, although today he has not managed to ride faster than yesterday and has stayed at 1'35.8. Third has been Andrea Iannone with the same time as Scott and very active too, while fourth has finished Simone corsi and fifth Claudio Corti. By the way, in the sixth place we find another pleasant news, since Julito Simon It has been placed in that position after we did not know its times in the previous days. Hopefully he will return for his jurisdiction …

And if there were occasional falls yesterday, today it was even worse, although again and fortunately without physical consequences. Thus they have touched the ground Max Neukirchner, Ratthapark Wilairot, Alex de Angelis, Gino Rea, Tito Rabat (which fell yesterday too), Mike di meglio twice, Damian Cudlin and Roberto Rolfo. Come on, complete.
