Andrea Iannone wins Moto2 race at Motegi, Marquez new points leader

Andrea Iannone won his third race of the 2011 season at the Twin Ring circuit under cloudy skies at Motegi today, while Marc Marquez’ second place has put him in the lead of the Moto2 championship by a single point over Stefan Bradl.

The Italian rider from Vasto, who was third on the starting grid lead the race from the start, fending off attacks by Marc Marquez, but the Speed Master rider rode brillantly losing the lead only twice to the Spanish rookie; on lap 7 but then retook it almost immediately and then with five laps to go and an almost 1 second lead, his bike went into neutral with Marquez taking the advantage, but Iannone wasn’t having it and fought back and overtook the lead once again and set out with a couple of fast laps to win with a 1.

999s margin.
The battle for third was between Stefan Bradl, Simone Corsi, Thomas Luthi and Alex de Angelis, but Luthi got the best of the German rider who finished fourth, grabbing the spot from Corsi on the last lap, with De Angelis ending up in sixth.

Bradley Smith finished in seventh holding off Dominique Aegerter, while Esteve Rabat and Mika Kallio rounded out the top ten.
