Tito Rabat strengthened his position at the top of the Moto2 World Championship standings with a perfect weekend at Mugello. The 25-year-old Spaniard started from pole position and posted a new lap record on the way to his third win of the season this afternoon.

Today’s victory, which came after chasing down early leaders Jonas Folger and Luis Salom, sees Rabat extend his championship lead over his Marc VDS teammate to 22 points.

Representing the team on the podium alongside Tito Rabat was the Marc VDS Team Coordinator, Marina Rossi, who celebrated her birthday today at Mugello.

Tito Rabat // Race Winner
“I’m very happy with the win today. I made a good start, but then I touched with Salom and that allowed him and Folger to get away at the front. But I was able to bridge the gap and then I had a fantastic battle at the front of the race, before eventually working my way through into the lead and pulling enough of a gap to stop them slipstreaming past me on the straight. It’s good to win before going back to Spain for my home race in two weeks but, in terms of the championship, it’s just another race and there are many more to go yet. Now we must focus on the test here at Mugello on Tuesday, so we can go to the next race and try and win again.”
