The No.36 takes the lead again at a key moment in the race, clearly demonstrating a thoughtful strategy: the championship leader really gives the impression of passing when and where he decides..
Mir manages to maintain his advantage until the checkered flag, nevertheless attracting the wrath of Di Giannantonio and Bastianini who follow him because of his important "sweep" carried out in the back straight to break the aspiration of his rivals. A game a little dangerous in this portion where the frail Moto3 approach the 240 km / h !
Slalom slipstreaming on the final lap! Fantastic race!
