Jake Dixon and Albert Arenas maintain the first two positions. The one who has disappeared has been Sam Lowes, who went long in the first corner.
Sam Lowes, meanwhile, returned to the podium last Sunday at the Sachsenring after finishing third. This after a disastrous streak of five consecutive retirements. Even so, it seems that the Lincoln driver is gradually overcoming his physical problems and is once again in a position to fight for the top positions.
Jake Dixon is accompanied on the front line by Albert Arenas and Sam Lowes. This is the second consecutive race in which Arenas starts from the front row and it remains to be seen if the 2020 Moto3 champion achieves what would be his first Moto3 podium finish.
Today Jake Dixon starts from pole, the second of the season. The British driver has the opportunity to get the first victory of his career today.
Another of the main strengths of Spanish motorcycling in this category also causes loss in this race. This is Pedro Acosta, who fractured his tibia while training a few days ago and the Murcian driver is forced to stop just when he was catching the air in this intermediate category, with that victory in the Italian Grand Prix and two appearances in the last two races.
In this race, Arón Canet, the fourth rider in the standings, was dropped. The driver from Cervera suffers from profuse bleeding from the nose due to a traffic accident that he had before the German Grand Prix and that makes it impossible for him to participate in this race.
Today Celestino Vietti starts in 11th position, while Augusto Fernández does so from 9th place.
Augusto Fernández is the fittest driver in recent races with three appearances on the podium in the last four races, including victories in the French and German Grand Prix.
And it is that Vietti already has three retirements this season, two of them in the last two races. And, after getting four appearances on the podium in the first five races of the season, he has only managed to finish on the drawer in one of the last five.
Moto2 is the tightest discipline with the top three riders within an interval of just 12 points. Celestino Vietti leads the table, but sees how he gradually loses the advantage that he managed to amass at the start of the season. Thus, the Italian has 133 points, eight more than Ai Ogura and 12 more than Augusto Fernández.
After Ayumu Sasaki's victory in Moto3, we focus on everything that may happen in a few minutes in the intermediate category.
