Fernández one step forward, García Dols and Guevara with Foggia following in their footsteps
Juan Antonio Llados
Madrid, 17 Aug. The Spaniard Augusto Fernández (Kalex) arrives at the Moto2 Austrian Grand Prix as the sole leader of the category after taking the lead in Great Britain with his third consecutive victory, while the Spaniards Sergio García Dols and Izan Guevara, over GasGas paths, see how the Italian Dennis Foggia (Honda) follows in his footsteps in Moto3.
The successful streak of Augusto Fernández seems to have no end because since his error in Portimao (Portugal), his worst result has been a fifth (Mugello), with a fourth in Jerez de la Frontera, a third in Montmeló and two victories in Le Mans , Sachsenring, Assen and Silverstone.
This background has led the rider born in Madrid but based in Palma de Mallorca to become the sole leader of the intermediate category, with 13 points over the Japanese Ai Ogura (Kalex), who ousted the Italian Celestino Vietti (Kalex), who He doesn’t seem to be going through his best form.
Fernández is therefore the clear and main reference in Moto2, with Ogura and Vietti as his most direct rivals, but without being able to forget the also Spanish Arón Canet (Kalex), who should be much more recovered from the injuries that occurred in his traffic accident, and the Italian Tony Arbolino (Kalex), among others.
They are the “classics” of Moto2, but not the only ones, because in recent races Alonso López, from Madrid, called to replace the Italian Romano Fenati in the Speed Up team on the Boscoscuro, has grown as a rider and his second position at Silverstone so it testifies.
In addition to López, riders such as the American Joe Roberts (Kalex), the British Jake Dixon or the Spaniards Albert Arenas (Kalex), Pedro Acosta (Kalex) or Jorge Navarro (Kalex) gradually show signs of adaptation and ambition in the intermediate category. Kalex), among many others.
If the Moto2 category is open, the Moto3 category is not far behind, especially after the “gift” that the Spaniards Sergio García Dols and Izan Guevara gave their rivals at Silverstone when both rolled on the ground, although it was not because of you.
The “zeros” of García Dols and Guevara allowed all their rivals, in particular the Italian Dennis Foggia with his victory or the Spanish Jaume Masiá (KTM) with the second position, to get closer in the championship points table, in which both still have a considerable advantage but that does not allow them many more “licenses”.
Sergio García Dols is the last winner in Austria and that band should be enough encouragement to try to repeat and, thus, consolidate his leadership in Moto3, even though his own teammate is not going to make it easy for him.
To them and Foggia and Masiá, we must add the Turkish Deniz Öncü (KTM) or the Japanese Ayumu Sasaki (Husqvarna) and Tatsuki Suzuki (Honda), in addition to the Italian Andrea Migno (Honda) or the Spanish Carlos Tatay (CFMoto), Xavier Artigas (CFMoto), Daniel Holgado (KTM) and David Muñoz (KTM), or the Brazilian Diogo Moreira (KTM), who at Silverstone got the first pole position of his sports career.
