AMAZING CHANTRA! Surprisingly, the name of emerges from the hell of the Indonesian Grand Prix Somkiat Chantra, who won an unrivaled race shortened by 9 laps for the extreme temperatures with which it ran. The Thai driver of the Idemitsu team escapes from the first laps and gets on the podium in front of our Celestino Viettiwho after the success of Qatar, confirms that he has found the right place and brings home 20 very important points from a world championship perspective, especially because they were vigorously snatched from a direct rival like the Spaniard Aron Canet, third. Too bad for Simone Corsi’s fall, while Tony Arbolino closes in eighth position, behind Sam Lowes, Augusto Fernandez, Ai Ogura and Fermin Aldeguer.
THE RACE Before the start of the race, the stewards decided to shorten the fatigue of the drivers in the middle class by nine laps, due to the scorching heat that makes tire life difficult. When the traffic lights go out, the Thai goes well Chantra passing the lead over Lowes, Dixon and the two blues Corsi and Vietti, very good at the start. Instead, Augusto Fernandez and Tony Arbolino got off to a bad start. While a few drops fall, Canet (from 13 ° to 4 °) and Acosta also show up, climbed up to seventh place before having to serve a long lap penalty that makes him sink into 15th place. In the first few laps Chantra increases her lead by up to one second on Lowes and Dixon, who in turn have a minimum margin on Canet and Vietti. On the third lap of the race the poleman Dixon stretches out, ruining a beautiful weekend. Canet overtakes Lowes and forms a trio with the Spaniard, the British and Vietti in pursuit of Chantra. Simone Corsi also fallswhich was excellent sixth. In the meantime Tony Arbolino is recovering well, who becomes the fifth and first pursuer of this group which, however, is already 4 seconds away. With 10 laps from the end Canet tries the extension, with Vietti passing Lowes and trying not to lose contact. On the next lap the standard bearer of the VR46 Canet passes and tries to understand if it is possible to recover the 2 seconds that separate him from the leader Chantra, who however continues to hammer and set the new track record. Vietti extends over Canet but fails to recover on a superlative Chantra, while Arbolino is caught up by Aldeguer and Fernandez. With 5 laps to go, the advantage of the Thai of the Idemitsu team is almost 3 ” and Vietti seems to be satisfied with an excellent position for the world championship. While Arenas and Acosta, the two latest Moto3 champions, are fighting fiercely for ninth position, nothing worries ahead of them Chantra flying towards her first career success! However, Celestino Vietti can be happy of the second position, which earned him a small attempt to escape the world champion! Third Canet while Lowes, Fernandez, Ogura, Aldeguer, Arbolino, Acosta and Arenas complete the top ten.
