The Moto3 World Championship title edged one step closer to Brad Binder at the San Marino Grand Prix, as he took his second consecutive victory and his fifth of the season Only Enea Bastianini was able to battle with the South African, after Jorge Navarro went to ground midway through the race.

Joan Mir finished third and Nicolò Bulega fourth at Misano. With 125 points still in play, Binder has a 106-point advantage and could take the title at MotorLand Aragon in two weeks’ time.

The Mahindra Gaviota Aspar Team were only able to run a single rider today, with Pecco Bagnaia the sole participant after Jorge Martín was injured yesterday in qualifying.

Martín did not take part in the San Marino GP owing to damage to the fourth and fifth metatarsals of his right foot, plus damaged tendons.

The Spaniard now has the next two weeks to recover before the Aragon Grand Prix, where last season he took what had been his best result in the World Championship at the time.

Jorge Martin (DNS):
“Misano was a difficult track for us. We struggled a bit at first, but yesterday I improved a lot in the qualifying session and I felt strong for the race. Yesterday’s crash was very hard, I have a lot of pain in my foot and two breaks in the fourth and fifth metatarsal. There is also some damage to the tendons, so we made the decision to wait and focus on Aragon. We will not go there at one hundred percent, but we will almost be ready for the race.”
