FRANCO MOR­BIDELLI (ESTRELLA Gali­cia Kalex) dom­i­nated Moto2 for the third suc­ces­sive race, re­sist­ing per­sis­tent pres­sure from Thomas Luthi (CarXpert Kalex). Takaaki Nak­agami (Idemitsu Kalex) rode an ex­cel­lent race, fi­nally bet­ter­ing Alex Mar­quez (Estrella Gali­cia Kalex).

Twenty-two-year-old Mor­bidelli led from pole, briefly re­lin­quish­ing the lead to Mar­quez, then re­assert­ing him­self, de­spite Luthi clos­ing on sev­eral oc­ca­sions. In the fi­nal few laps the former Euro­pean Su­per­stock 600 cham­pion had more pace than any­one, so he was able to open the gap to 2.6 sec­onds at the fin­ish.
