Fenati takes Moto3™ victory at #FrenchGP

 Fenati takes Moto3™ victory at #FrenchGP

The SKY Racing Team VR46 rider heads up an all-Italian podium in Le Mans.

The Italian is joined on the podium by compatriots Enea Bastianini (Gresini Racing Team Moto3) and Francesco Bagnaia (Mapfre Mahindra Aspar). This is the first time we've seen an all-Italian podium in the junior class since the Japanese 125cc GP in 2004.

Brit rider Danny Kent (Leopard Racing) started the race way back on the 31st grid position after a tactical error in qualifying, but quickly fought his way through the pack, getting inside the top 10 before the end of lap 6. He went on to compete in a battle for the podium but finished the race in fourth place.

A crash on turn 3 of the first lap took out Kent’s team mate Efrén Vázquez (Leopard Racing), Remy Gardner (CIP), Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Ajo) & Gabriel Rodrigo (RBA Racing Team).

French rider Fabio Quartararo (Estrella Galicia 0,0) found his hopes of a victory at his home race ruined when he crashed out with just 7 laps to go.

Niccolò Antonelli (Ongetta-Rivacold) finished the race in fifth place, followed by Jakub Kornfeil (Drive M7 SIC) in 6th. Isaac Viñales (Husqvarna Factory LaGlisse) took 7th position, leaving Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo) in 8th.

The top ten was completed by Andrea Migno (SKY Racing Team VR46) and Phillip Oettl (Schedl GP Racing) respectively.
