The Joan Mir festival continues in the quarter liter: the championship leader has just won in Austria his third straight Moto3 victory, his seventh this season! However, the show was on stage thanks to the "locals" Bendsneyder and Oettl, the courageous Martin and the little new Masia….

Poleman Rodrigo got off to a very good start under the Austrian sun while Martin widened from the first corner and lost contact with the outposts. Fourth at the entry of the first turn, McPhee took the lead on exiting turn 3. But the British must give up his place as leader…

Qualified sixth at the controls of his factory KTM, Bendsneyder took control of the race at the very end of the first lap, to the delight of the Austrian public! The Dutch n ° 64 tries to escape but the still dense peloton remains in its wheel.

Martin, who is slowly recovering from his terrible fall at the Sachsenring, picks up his opponents one by one and takes the lead at the start of the 5th lap. Mir, McPhee and Bendsneyder heckle him and allow the second group to hang on … Rodrigo, Oettl and the rest of the peloton are still in contention for victory after 10 laps.

Halfway through the race, championship leader Joan Mir decided to take the lead and started to accelerate. Philipp Oettl clings to No. 36 while Jorge Martin widens again in the first corner 13 laps from the end. The Spaniard failed to mow down McPhee by returning to the right line. Hot !

Another driver stands out for better reasons: the wild-card Jaumo Masia sets the best time in the race and joins the chase group. For his first Grand Prix, the CEV championship driver rubs shoulders with and even upsets Rodrigo, Martin, McPhee, Oettl, Migno "and co" !

Inflated and very inflated "short", the Spanish beginner climbs to second position 9 laps from the end and signals to Martin to stay behind him! Does Masia think he can get back on Mir who has two seconds ahead and continues to widen the gap? ?

A lap later, Bendsneyder mowed down McPhee on the first – very big – braking of the Austrian track. Fortunately, the Briton is recovering without a problem, which is perhaps not the case with the Dutch. In front, Migno and Martin pass in rapid succession their young, inexperienced but swift comrade Masia.

Seven laps from the end, Joan Mir flies alone to victory. Migno stretches out alone in the first corner and leaves his fourteen pursuers (!) To fight for the two steps of the podium … Finally, the German Pilipp Oettl takes second place in front of an impressive Jorge Martin.

Winner of the 2017 Austrian GP, ​​Joan Mir increased his lead in the provisional: the Spanish n ° 36 has 64 points more than his main rival Romano Fenati, 14th in this race at Spielberg. Canet and Martin take advantage of the Italian’s underperformance to return to provisional … Next distribution of points at the end of the month in Great Britain !
