 In Moto2, News

Tony Arbolino has become the new leader of the Moto2 World Championship after taking his first win of the season, the fourth of his career in the intermediate category. The Italian rider had taken the lead with three laps to go and has crossed the line ahead of Alonso Lopez, who started from pole position, and Jake Dixon, who has been able to dedicate the podium to his new born daughter. With these results, Pedro Acosta drops to third in the overall standings and Aron Canet, who finished fourth despite the penalty for jumping the start, remains in second place.

Jake Dixon has taken his first podium of the year, the seventh of his career in Moto2, after finishing the Argentina Grand Prix in third position. The Solunion GASGAS Aspar rider has fought in the front group and has been able to escape, along with Alonso Lopez and Tony Arbolino, to get the podium with a lead of more than five seconds over his persecutor, Aron Canet. Jordi Torres has finished the Argentina Grand Prix in sixteenth position after completing 14 laps at a remarkable pace. If in Portugal he finished more than a minute behind the race winner, in Argentina he managed to reduce the gap to 31 seconds. The Spanish rider missed out on the points but was very satisfied with his weekend’s performance.

3rd Jake Dixon (+1.961):
“The last 24 hours have been a blur! I’ve been ill, I want to say how much I love my wife and new daughter and then that was a difficult race! I struggled to see 8 laps from the end and had to lift up my visor in places. I want to thank the team: to get a podium here, as well as a sixth position, is great to start the season.”

16th Jordi Torres (+31.901):
“We made a big change to the bike and it worked very well. We didn’t make any mistakes, I had an incredible feeling and I think we have the bike to do much more. It’s difficult to know how much you can hold back, especially in these conditions. I’ve never tried this bike and tyres in wet conditions before. We just missed out on getting a point, but I’m very happy with our upward progression.”
