Moto2, Fernandez triumphs at the Sachsenring, now threatening in the world championship.  Vietti falls

Clear dominance of the Spaniard of KTM, fourth at the start but then able to put everyone on the podium and precede Acosta and Lowes. Disastrous weekend for Celestino, but also for Ogura (8th) and Canet (9th). So the winner falls in the ranking: he is third at -12

Sent to Sachsenring (Germany) Mario Salvini


A clear victory, of arrogance, deserved, and even much more: Augusto Fernandez not only triumphed proving himself capable of an admirable dominance, but he also made a very important step forward in the standings. Because despite his great first place, the best had a Sunday, or worse, a difficult weekend for some, disastrous for others. Certainly it was a catastrophe that of leaders Celestino Vietti, eighth on Saturday in qualifying and not only unable to improve the situation, but even embroiled in a race in which he was trapped. And with seven laps to go he slipped away at turn 1, without points. Good that his main rival, Ai Ogura, did better but not by that much: he finished eighth.

Nice comeback

And it is true that it is a very atypical track and therefore it may not be too textual, but the Sachsenring said that the problem could be Fernandez. Who started third, lost one position at the start. But then relentlessly Albert Arenas slipped in, then the hero of the track Marcel Schroetter – German hope – and finally the revived Sam Lowes, started from pole. To spin away to a clear and extraordinary victory. The fifth in his career, after 3am in 2019 and this year at Le Mans. “It was incredible – he said – I felt good right from free practice. And I was able to live up to what I did there. I kept the pace very well. And that’s not all… “.

Now Augusto is third

This is the point: the success allows him to overtake Aron Canet in the standings (also badly: only 9th) and to reach third place with 121 points, only -4 from Ogura. With Vietti who remains first at 133. Beautiful, beautiful, the duel for second place. For a long time Lowes, Schroetter and Arenas played it. But in the meantime Pedro Acosta was coming up. In the last few corners he attacked and passed Lowes, third, on the twentieth podium in Moto2. “There was a contact with Pedro in the final, but that’s okay. For me this podium counts as a victory, ”said the Englishman. Very good Acosta, then: “I knew it would be hard – he said – but it is the result of the work we have done with the team”. Not even the rest of Italy did well: the only one who made the point was Tony Arbolino, tenth.
