Rins triumphs in exciting lightweight contest

Rins triumphs in exciting lightweight contest

The Moto3™ race at the Hertz British Grand Prix was won by Alex Rins on the final corner, with Alex Marquez and Enea Bastianini also on the podium.

Pole man Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) was pushed right to the limit by his teammate Marquez and by Bastianini, who both provisionally led the race. The winning margin between Rins and Marquez was just 0.011s, with Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) just 0.061s back on Marquez.

Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing) was unlucky to miss the podium, having run with that front group. He eventually finished fourth and was just 0.051s away from a rostrum result.

A further four and half seconds back Jakub Kornfeil (Calvo Team) won a battle for fifth involving a huge group of riders, whilst Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) was just a tenth behind in sixth place.

The top ten was completed by Niccolo Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN), Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold), Danny Kent (Red Bull Husqvarna Ajo) and Niklas Ajo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo).

Wild card Joe Irving crashed out in the early stages, with Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) also going down early on. New Mahindra Racing rider Andrea Migno was another crasher, though fortunately all those riders were uninjured. Scott Deroue (RW Racing GP) was forced to retire with smoke coming from his exhaust late in the race.
