Results and rankings.

Stressful race for the resumption of the season in the Czech Republic: the track is dry at the start, but the very overcast sky is threatening as the Moto2 riders set off on slick tires. Miguel Oliveira takes the best start on his KTM ahead of Mattia Pasini, author of his first pole since the Australian GP 125cc 2007. Bagnaia, Morbidelli and Marquez are just behind.

Pasini, which is his 200th Grand Prix start, takes the lead and begins to widen a gap in front of Franco Morbidelli, when a few drops invite themselves to the party … This small shower is growing, upsetting the classification: Pasini retrograde to 4th place before the red flag was waved to stop the race in the face of deteriorating conditions, 13 laps from the finish…

A second start is given for a race shortened to six laps. The grid is as usual based on the classification of the round preceding the red flag: Pasini, Morbidelli, Oliveira, Marquez and Binder. Fabio Quartararo will start from 11th place on a track now very wet in places, despite the stop of the rain.

Thomas Lüthi emerges like hell from his box from his 7th place and signs the holeshot of this second start from the outside! The Swiss precede Alex Marquez, Franco Morbidelli and Mattia Pasini, who makes a mistake in turn 11, a left in which he loses the front. Full of confidence, Lüthi crushes the competition by turning a second faster than his rivals !

The Interwetten rider heads off without looking back to victory, his first of this Moto2 season in which he has already been on the podium seven times without ever reaching the top step. N ° 12 explains having had "an excellent feeling in the wet this morning: I felt the limit perfectly". This perfect feeling translates into a success with 4.991 sec ahead of Marquez and 6.983 sec over Oliveira.

Luca Marini, fourth, signs his best Moto2 result in the Czech Republic. A good omen for Valentino Rossi’s half-brother, who should join the VR46 team in 2018. A time in the Top 5, Fabio Quartararo finally fails in 20th place.
