The only difference between this and the other eleven gare dominate by Alvaro Bautista is the livery colour of the Ducati and the World Champion’s suit, which for the occasion is from yellow color.
For the rest, once again the Spaniard made a race boring which saw the riders all open from the third/fourth lap. Bautista constantly inflicted more than half a second on his pursuers per lap, immediately making it clear that no one could have opposed his triumphal march. His teammate’s race was excellent Michael Ruben Rinaldiwho initially tried to keep up with Alvaro on his favorite track, and then judiciously maintained second position, sheltered from possible attacks by Toprak Razgatliogluthird across the finish line without ever having been able to get close to the two official V4s.
Axel Bassani he is fourth and thus repeats his best result on the Romagna track, but he probably has to thank Danilo Petrucci which it is sadly slipped at the curve of the oak during the fifteenth lap, while occupying the fourth place, then passed to the Motocorsa Team rider.
The only duel of the race was for fifth place between Jonathan Rea e And Mr. Aegerterwith the six-time world champion who resisted the attack of the Swiss from Yamaha in the final stages.
Despite his great commitment, on the track that has seen him win eight times in the past, Jonny could not do better than a fifth position that photographs his troubled season in the best possible way. Alex Lowes finished seventh, behind Iker Lecuona, the usually anonymous Remy Gardner, Xavi Vierge and Scott Redding, eleventh and first of the BMW drivers.
Race to forget for Andrea Locatelli only twelfth. The Bergamo player preceded Garrett Gerloff, Philipp Oettl and Lorenzo Baldassarri, who brought home a point.
Luca Vitali lined up on the starting line but did not kick off, after the start itself was delayed due to a problem with Bradley Ray’s bike which then regularly tripped when the red light went out. After the engine failure in Superpole, Gabriele Ruiu and his team did not line up on the grid.
