2021 Jerez Moto2 Dunlop Test Times - Tricky Conditions See Vietti Fastest As Rookies Make Debut

Mist and rain dogged the Moto2 class at Jerez as they took to the track for a private test, with assistance from Dunlop to test tires ahead of the 2022 season. Poor conditions made it hard to read anything into the times, Celestino Vietti's fastest time four tenths off the race lap record at the track and over a second slower than the outright lap record, both set earlier this year at the Jerez Grand Prix.

The most interesting part of the test was the fact that so many rookies got their first taste of Moto2 machinery. Filip Salac was the quickest of the Moto3 graduates, the Gresini rider eighth quickest over all, eight tenths off the time of Vietti. Gabriel Rodrigo was twlfth, just ahead of Moto3 champion Pedro Acosta, the pair just under 1.2 seconds slower than Vietti. Nico Antonelli was sixteenth fastest, while Zonta van den Goorbergh brought up the rear, just ahead of Jeremy Alcoba in 22nd.

MotoAmerica Supersport champion Sean Dylan Kelly made a strong start to his Moto2 career, ninth fastest just a second off the time of Vietti, while MotoE transferee Alessandro Zaccone was tenth quickest.

The day ended badly for Jorge Navarro, the Spaniard crashing and fracturing the malleolus in his left ankle.

2021 Mandalika World Superbike Race Two Result: Rain Delays Led To Twelve Wet Laps

Much like yesterday, the rain hit the island hard. After delay after delay, the track was checked at 15:30 and the decision was pushed back until 16:00 local time. Astonishingly, after discussions with key riders, a decision was made to go racing, with a quick start twelve lap race in the rain.

After an uneventful sighting lap, the riders lined up and the light went out. Toprak Razgatlioglu led into turn one, ahead of Andrea Locatelli and Garrett Gerloff, but Scott Redding and Jonathan Rea pushed through a confusing turn one to take second and third place. Rea took second place off Redding into turn ten as four riders headed in to the same bit of track. 

After one lap, Rea led Razgatlioglu, Redding and Axel Bassani with Michal Van der Mark and Tati Mercado close behind. Razgatlioglu lined up alongside Rea and took the lead into turn twelve. Michael van der Mark set the fastest lap of 1'46.089 closing up to Axel Bassani to make the leading group five bikes.

Scott Redding took the lead into turn ten, but Jonathan Rea took it back briefly until Redding took it back into turn twelve. Tati Mercado unfortunately crashed out behind the action. Scott Redding set the fastest lap, a 1'45.301.

At turn nine, Jonathan Rea rode round the outside of Scott Redding to take the lead back and set a fastest lap in the process, a 1'44.597.

Axel Bassani and Toprak Razgatlioglu made contact around turns fifteen and sixteen and Bassani was put into the path of Michael van der Mark who nudged him off the track and out of the race as Rea set the fastest lap, beaten by Redding a lap later with a 1'44.058.

At half race distance, Scott Redding led Jonathan Rea as Michael van der Mark took third place from Toprak Razgatlioglu. The incident between van der Mark and Bassani was put under investigation and Redding set a 1'43.648 lap.

Into turn ten of lap seven of twelve, Jonathan Rea took the lead back from Scott Redding, as the pair led the fight between Toprak Razgatlioglu and Michael van der Mark by over three seconds. Van der Mark and Razgatlioglu made close passes throughout the lap as Jonathan Rea set a 1'43.362 with five laps left. A lap later, Rea posted a 1'43.172 with Scott Redding right behind him. Van der Mark and Razgatlioglu continued to swap places with van der Mark taking third back. 

Michael van der Mark avoided a penalty for his clash with Axel Bassani as Scott Redding and Jonathan Rea set identical lap times, a fastest lap of 1'42.835 two tenths apart on track. A lap later, Redding took the fastest lap with a 1'42.421, over six seconds ahead of van der Mark and Razgatlioglu. Ten seconds back from Razgatlioglu, Tom Sykes sat in fifth place on his last race with BMW, three seconds ahead of Garrett Gerloff.

Down the straight to start the last lap, Scott Redding powered past Jonathan Rea, with a 1'42.390, to take the lead before the first turn. Into turn ten, Redding couldn't hold the line and Rea snuck underneath to take the lead. Redding took the lead into turn fifteen, but was wide into sixteen as a result, letting Rea switch underneath to take the lead onto the straight.

Jonathan Rea won by less than three tenths over Scott Redding, with Michael van der Mark seven seconds behind taking third place, three seconds ahead of Toprak Razgatlioglu. Eleven seconds further back, Tom Sykes led Garrett Gerloff by almost three seconds to take fifth place. Chaz Davies ended his World Superbike career in twelfth place.

Jonathan Rea met his team halfway round the track and they put the number 65 back on the front of his Kawasaki, relinquishing the number one plate.

Jonathan Rea's win was his thirteenth of the year, matching Toprak Razgatlioglu's number of wins, but it was Yamaha who took the manufacturer's title, and Garrett Gerloff who took the independent rider's title.

2021 Mandalika World Supersport Race Two Result: Fight To The End, As Usual

The last World Supersport race of the year wasn't immediately threatened by rain and would be nineteen laps to end the season. The track was a toasty 38ºC, much warmer than in the Superbike race this morning.

Federico Caricasulo led from the start but Can Oncu took the lead into turn ten. Manuel Gonzalez took third place from Raffaele De Rosa and started lap two over a second from the leading two, but he crashed out halfway round the lap at turn seven. Can Oncu set the fastest lap, a 1'37.674, but there were drops of rain reported around the track. Jeffrey Buis in sixteenth place was awarded a double long lap penalty for a jump start. Niki Tuuli set the fastest lap with a 1'37.444 on lap three.

Can Oncu led Federico Caricasulo with Raffaele De Rosa and Niki Tuuli two seconds behind them. Niki Tuuli set a 1'37.119 on lap four as Caricasulo and Tuuli chopped half a second from their gap to the leading pair. Dominique Aegerter was in a lonely fifth place, over a second off De Rosa and Tuuli. Tuuli took advantage of a mistake by De Rosa into turn eleven to take third place. 

Federico Caricasulo looked for a way past Can Oncu, but none of his attempts would work. Behind him, Niki Tuuli set another fastest lap, a 1'36.946, and closed to within a second by lap seven. Caricasulo finally got past Oncu into turn ten, pulling alongside him exiting turn nine. Caricasulo led Oncu and Tuuli with Raffaele De Rosa and Dominique Aegerter closing up to make the leading group five bikes long with Jules Cluzel under two seconds behind them. 

The leading five riders were covered by just eight tenths of a second as Jules Cluzel closed up to under a second and a half off the pack. Into turn fifteen, Can Oncu makes an ambitious move that pushed him and Caricasulo offline, letting Niki Tuuli scythe underneath to take the lead. 

At half race distance, Niki Tuuli led Can Oncu, Federico Caricasulo, Raffaele De Rosa, Dominique Aegerter and Jules Cluzel. Hannes Soomer was over six seconds behind in seventh place. On lap eleven, Niki Tuuli set a 1'36.849 for the fastest lap and a lap record. A lap later, Jules Cluzel closed up with a 1'36.820 lap record as the leading six were covered by under a second and a half.

Federico Caricasulo took second place into turn ten and a lap later, Can Oncu ended up at the back of the leading pack, losing grip in turn sixteen, as Jules Cluzel charged through to fourth place, then third by lap fifteen, passing De Rosa into turn one. Steven Odendaal ended his year, crashing out of ninth place at turn eight, but his bike kept going across the run off before gracefully falling over, leaving him with a long walk to his parked bike.

On lap seventeen of nineteen, Can Oncu was almost two seconds off the leading five as Federico Caricasulo used turn ten to take the lead on his borrowed bike. Jules Cluzel took second place from Tuuli in turn one of lap eighteen and he took the lead exiting turn nine, as Tuuli went wide to drop to fourth place. Dominique Aegerter passed Caricasulo into turn fifteen and pushed to catch Cluzel and he closed through turn seven at the edge of adhesion and held the run to turn ten for the lead.

In the last three turns, Cluzel barged past Aegerter but went wide on the penultimate corner, letting Aegerter and Caricasulo through. Caricasulo then tried to get alongside Aegerter who then went wide into the last turn, pushing Caricasulo wide with him. Jules Cluzel kept on the clean line, with Niki Tuuli on his tail, and the pair shot past the Yamahas, with Cluzel leading Tuuli, Aegerter and Caricasulo to the line. 

Jules Cluzel picked up the pieces from a tense fight to take the victory ahead of Niki Tuuli. Dominique Aegerter finished ahead of Federico Caricasulo as Caricasulo lost drive down the straight as his wheel lifted while he returned to the track. 

Ten Kate took the team title with Dominique Aegerter's third place, even if his attempt at a burnout was a failure. Jules Cluzel's victory was his fourth of the year and consolidated his fourth place in the championship, behind Manuel Gonzalez.

2021 Mandalika World Superbike Race One Result: Twenty Hours, Twenty Laps And Twenty Points Needed

After a few minutes of delay for rain in sectors 1 and 4, World Superbike race one finally started their sighting lap, twenty hours after intended, with Toprak Razgatlioglu nearly coming a cropper into turn one. As they returned to the grid, they were met by their teams instead of the lights, and they lined up to wait for the weather again. The race distance was dropped from twenty one to twenty laps and they were given five minutes to change their tyres. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea both lined up on slick tyres. The track temperature was down at 35ºC.

Jonathan Rea led Scott Redding and Toprak Razgatlioglu with Tom Sykes the only rider keeping up with the leading three. Razgatlioglu took second place off Redding into turn ten and started lap two on Rea's tail. Scott Redding sat over a second behind the leading two, with Tom Sykes and Axel Bassani behind him. 

Axel Bassani started lap three, after setting a fastest lap of 1'39.474, in fourth place, having passed Tom Sykes. At the front, Toprak Razgatlioglu pushed past Jonathan Rea into turn one to take the lead. Razgatlioglu lifted the rear into turn ten, tipping in on one wheel. Michael Van der Mark set a fastest lap of 1'38.295 as Axel Bassani took third place from Redding.

After missing the apex into turn ten, Axel Bassani had a better exit from the corner and used it to pull alongside Jonathan Rea and force his way into second place into turn twelve. A lap later, at turn ten, Bassani took the lead from Razgatlioglu. Chaz Davies set a fastest lap of 1'38.018 on lap four. Jonathan Rea got past razgatlioglu and pushed Bassani out of the way into the last corners, setting a fastest lap of 1'37.418. Razgatlioglu took second from Bassani and then swapped back and forth with Rea in turns ten and twelve. Razgatlioglu in second place set a fastest lap of 1'36.772 as he duelled with his championship rival. 

The track started climbing as the sun came out. Jonathan Rea led Toprak Razgatlioglu, Axel Bassani and Scott Redding, with Tom Sykes holding fifth place from Michael Van der Mark, Andrea Locatelli and Chaz Davies. Jonathan Rea set a fastest lap of 1'36.340 as he led the start of lap eight. Lap eight was another fastest lap for Rea, a 1'35.830.

As Rea and Razgatlioglu carried on their fight, with Razgatlioglu forced his way under Rea into turn ten, but behind them Scott Redding set the fastest lap with a 1'35.461 as he closed up to the fighting leaders, bringing Axel Bassani with him. Rea used the last corners to take the lead back to start lap eleven. 

At half race distance, Jonathan Rea led Toprak Razgatlioglu, Scott Redding and Axel Bassani, but Razgatlioglu took advantage of Rea going wide to regain the lead. Scott Redding watched Rea avoid Razgatlioglu into turns fifteen and sixteen and snuck underneath to take second place behind Razgatlioglu. Axel Bassani remained in touch as the leading trio swapped places.

Toprak Razgatlioglu slid both wheels into turn fifteen, gliding out onto the kerbs and nearly crashing out. Scott Redding and Jonathan Rea picked up the pieces as Razgatlioglu recovered in front of Axel Bassani. Scott Redding in the lead set a 1'34.800. A lap later, Jonathan Rea set a 1'34.413 as he nipped at Redding's heels. Rea looked for ways to take the lead, looking past Redding, but Redding had found a rhythm and looked comfortable in the lead. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu was over a second behind Redding and Rea, with Axel Bassani over a second behind. Jonathan Rea needed to pass Redding to stay in with a chance of the title. With just over four laps left, Rea made his move as Redding was slightly offline into turn ten, showing Rea a gap he had to go for.

With four laps to go, Rea led Redding and Razgatlioglu and the leading trio held their places all lap, with Redding and Razgatlioglu swapping paint, and they started lap eighteen of twenty in the same places, but Razgatlioglu forced a pass into turn one to take second off Redding. Razgatlioglu would take the title if he held this place. 

Jonathan Rea started lap nineteen with over a second from the fighting bikes behind him, bot over the length of the lap, Toprak Razgatlioglu and Scott Redding closed up, with Razgatlioglu setting a 1'34.288 as he closed. 

The start of the last lap, Scott Redding watched as Jonathan Rea and Toprak Razgatlioglu escaped, without Razgatlioglu able to close on Rea, and Jonathan Rea took the victory ahead of Toprak Razgatlioglu and Scott Redding with Andrea Locatelli and Axel Bassani picking up fourth and fifth places over five seconds off the podium fight.

Second place for Toprak Razgatlioglu was enough for him to claim his first world championship, ending Jonathan Rea's run of championships to six. 

Razgatlioglu rode to a makeshift changing room, a Yamaha blue windbreaker, and took his time to transform into his final form, a gold-clad champion, in full gold leathers and helmet, pulling stoppies and a rolling burnout down the pit lane. After running out of stoppie opportunities, Razgatlioglu made his way to Parc Fermé to get a big hug from his team and Jonathan Rea.

Toprak Razgatlioglu is the first Yamaha champion since Ben Spies in 2009 and is the third youngest World Superbike champion, after James Toseland and Troy Corser.

2021 Mandalika World Supersport Race One Result: Challenging Conditions

The first ever World Supersport race in Indonesia opened under uncertainty, with the clouds hanging over the track as the temperature dropped to 29ºC and the teams stood by with wet weather kit on hand.

The lights went out and Dominique Aegerter led Federico Caricasulo and Raffaele De Rosa for the first few corners, but Caricasulo took the lead into turn ten. Manuel Gonzalez took third place as Can Oncu tapped De Rosa's exhaust pipe before starting the second lap. Gonzalez slipped into second place on lap two as Can Oncu in fifth place set the race record of 1'38.193.

Spots of rain didn't slow the pace down as Gonzalez took the lead into turn ten, the pair breaking free from Aegerter in third place. The sky darkened on lap four as Aegerter dropped a couple of places as the red crossed white flag summoned the rain.

Lap five, and the lap times dropped by ten seconds as the track got damper. A couple of riders nipped in for wet tyres, spending one minute and seventeen seconds minimum intervention time.

At the start of lap six, the top ten riders remained out on the track, headed by Manuel Gonzalez, Raffaele De Rosa, Can Oncu and Federico Caricasulo, still lapping ten seconds off the pace. At turn ten, Raffaele took the lead on lap six and remained out, leading Manuel Gonzalez and Can Oncu. The rain stopped and Manuel Gonzalez caught and passed Raffaele De Rosa. Can Oncu barged De Rosa aside into turn sixteen to start lap eight in second place.

As the track dried out under the heat, Raffaele De Rosa picked off Can Oncu and Manuel Gonzalez. De Rosa immediately put a gap from the fight for second place as Federico Caricasulo took second place from Can Oncu and Manuel Gonzalez. By lap ten, past half race distance, the pace returned to within a second of the dry speeds at the beginning of the race.

At the start of lap eleven, Raffaele De Rosa had a gap off almost a second over Federico Caricasulo who was over a second clear of Steven Odendaal, Can Oncu and Dominique Aegerter. 

De Rosa and Caricasulo were over two seconds clear of third place on lap twelve as Niki Tuuli pulled out with a technical fault. Raffaele De Rosa set the fastest lap on lap twelve as he tried to escape from Federico Caricasulo. Nearly three seconds behind Caricasulo, Dominique Aegerter held off a fight between Can Oncu, Manuel Gonzalez and Steven Odendaal behind him. Dominique Aegerter set the fastest lap on lap thirteen.

Jules Cluzel caught up with the fight for fourth and carved his way past Steven Odendaal to take sixth place. Dominique Aegerter set another fastest lap on lap fourteen, under two seconds from De Rosa and Caricasulo and closing at a pace of half a second a lap. Lap fifteen and Aegerter put in a 1'36.912, another fastest lap, to close to just over a second off Federico Caricasulo in second place. 

Behind the race for the podium places, Jules Cluzel continued his journey through the pack to sit in fourth place ahead of Manuel Gonzalez and Can Oncu. Dominique Aegerter caught Federico Caricasulo at the start of lap seventeen of nineteen and set up a pass into turn ten to take second place. Aegerter set the lap record again, with a 1'36.894, half a second quicker than the rider just over half a second ahead of him. Raffaele De Rosa set a personal best lap in the lead, but it was half a second slower than the rider behind him. 

Lap eighteen of nineteen and Raffaele De Rosa led Dominique Aegerter by under two tenths of a second with Federico Caricasulo over two seconds behind. Jules Cluzel in fourth place was lapping a second quicker than Caricasulo just over a second ahead of him, with enough time left to make an attempt at a pass.

After a flawless lap, Raffaele De Rosa took his first win in World Supersport, holding off Dominique Aegerter by a tenth of a second. The last spot on the podium was decided three seconds later, with Federico Caricasulo leading Jules Cluzel by just over half a second as fifth-placed Manuel Gonzalez looked on. 

After a dodgy start as the weather toyed with the race, Raffaele De Rosa managed his lead to take the first victory of his career and Kawasaki's first of the year. Dominique Aegerter's second place needed another lap for him to have turned it into a victory, as he was clearly the fastest rider on the track once the rain gave up. Federico Caricasulo, riding for his third team of the year, put his borrowed bike in third place.

2021 Mandalika World Superbike Superpole Result: Lowes And Haslam Unfit

World Superbike's first Superpole at the new Indonesian track would be missing Leon Haslam and Alex Lowes, Lowes ruled unfit after his qualifying crash and Haslam not having recovered enough from his recent surgery. The weather threatened to take part, 30ºC air temperatures with clouds keeping the track down to 44ºC, but the clouds might bring rain at some point during the day. 

Axel Bassani set a 1'34.003 which held the top spot until Toprak Razgatlioglu set a 1'33.544, followed by Jonathan Rea, Scott Redding and Andrea Locatelli. Garrett Gerloff used a sprint race tyre in his first session, hoping to fit three sessions in.

Jonathan Rea and Scott Redding set out for their second session early, with six minutes remaining. Jonathan Rea set a 1'33.201 with Scott Redding under a tenth off his pace, but Toprak Razgatlioglu took a third of a second out of the pair with a 1'32.877, an unassailable lap.

Toprak Razgatlioglu took his third pole position of the year, ahead of Jonathan Rea and Scott Redding. Garrett Gerloff headed the second row, alongside Andrea Locatelli and Tom Sykes, who knocked Axel Bassani off the second row. Bassani lined up with Alvaro Bautista and Michael van der Mark on the third row.

2021 Mandalika World Supersport Superpole Result: Set The Benchmark

The last World Supersport Superpole qualifying of the year took place under a cloudy sky, keeping the track temperature down. 

After one lap, Raffaele De Rosa held the top spot with a 1'37.170, ahead of Federico Caricasulo, Manuel Gonzalez and Dominique Aegerter, with Can Oncu joining them on his second lap. Dominique Aegerter upped the pace with a 1'36.686, a new absolute lap record.

Jules Cluzel stayed out longer than the remainder of the field, but he pitted in after seven timed laps for a new tyre, joining everyone else for the last four minutes. Randy Krummenacher set a 1'36.650 but Raffaele De Rosa knocked him off the top spot with a 1'36.622. 

With a minute and a half left, Dominique Aegerter posted a 1'36.288, with only Manuel Gonzalez in a position to beat his time as the clock ticked down. After the flag came out, nobody could match Aegerter's lap and he held on to pole position.

Dominique Aegerter took pole position ahead of Manuel Gonzalez and Federico Caricasulo. Raffaele De Rosa headed the second row, alongside Randy Krummenacher and Niki Tuuli. The third row was made of Philipp Oettl, Can Oncu and Steven Odendaal.

2021 Jerez MotoGP Test Rookies: Di Giannantonio Fastest Of Newcomers At Jerez

In the MotoGP rookie preseason mini-championship, Fabio Di Giannantonio took first blood, the Gresini Ducati rider 1.656 seconds behind Ducati stablemate Pecco Bagnaia. Raul Fernandez won the Tech3 battle, 0.163 behind Di Giannantonio, and just under four hundredths faster than his teammate and Moto2 world champion Remy Gardner. Marco Bezzecchi ended as fourth fastest rookie on the VR46 Ducati, while Moto3 graduate Darryn Binder was slowest of the rookies on the RNF Yamaha, as you might expect from a rider moving up from Moto3. Binder improved his time from Thursday by 1.8 seconds.
