2021 Portimao World Superbike Race One Result: Hard Racing Has Consequences

World Superbike race one was twenty laps of Portimao, with no Pirelli SCX tyres available for safety reasons. The track was 43ºC with 25ºC air temperature. Toprak Razgatlioglu leads Jonathan Rea by twenty points in the championship going into this round. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu led Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam into turn one, but Scott Redding went round the outside to slot into third place. Rea took the lead in turn two, but Razgatlioglu took it back at turn five. After a lap, nobody had a significant gap, and Rea wasn't able to take the lead back in the beginning of the lap. Jonathan Rea took the lead but Toprak Razgatlioglu pushed him aside a turn later, in turn thirteen.

Scott Redding set the fastest lap behind the gloves-off duel in front of him as the leading trio broke free. At turn thirteen, Rea pushed past Razgatlioglu, setting the fastest lap but the leading pair were overhauled by Scott Redding who blasted past into turn one for the lead. Rea and Razgatlioglu swapped paint behind the leader. Rea passed Razgatlioglu into turn eleven and tried to get past Redding. 

At the start of lap five, Rea slapped the rear of his bike about into turn one, dropping him to third place, but he took the lead into turn thirteen. On the last corner, turn fifteen, he lost the lead and his grip, slipping his rear tyre, sliding the bike and him off the track, his bike flipping over and over as Rea slid the length of the gravel trap. Rea looked more upset than hurt. 

Scott Redding led Toprak Razgatlioglu around, with Leon Haslam inheriting a podium place over three seconds off the leaders. Scott Redding set the fastest lap on lap seven, a 1'41.507, as his teammate Michael Ruben Rinaldi took third place off Leon Haslam, but Haslam was able to take the place back, pushing Rinaldi wide. Down the straight, Leon Haslam was pushed from third to sixth as Loris Baz, Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Alvaro Bautista piled past him down the straight. Loris Baz led the second group six seconds off Redding and Razgatlioglu. 

With Jonathan Rea out of the picture, Toprak Razgatlioglu looked a lot happier to sit in second place, no longer scrapping for the lead at every opportunity.  Rea was taken to the medical centre, standard procedure after a crash like that. 

At half race distance, Toprak Razgatlioglu took the lead into turn one on the brakes, but Scott Redding was keeping up throughout the lap. The fight for the last podium place, seven seconds behind Redding, was led by Alvaro Bautista, ahead of Loris Baz and Michael van der Mark as Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Leon Haslam went wide and let Andrea Locatelli past. 

On lap thirteen of twenty, Scott Redding remained within touch, under a second behind Toprak Razgatlioglu, but the Yamaha rider slowly started pulling out a couple of tenths of a second, Razgatlioglu the only rider under 1'42. A lap later, Redding closed back up, the only rider under 1'42. Behind the leading pair, eight seconds further back, Loris Baz led Alvaro Bautista as Andrea Locatelli clipped Michael van der Mark's rear to Kate both riders out of action. As van der Mark ran to his bike, he shoved Locatelli aside, making it clear where he put the blame for the crash. The incident was immediately put under investigation.

Scott Redding closed up to Toprak Razgatlioglu on lap sixteen, crossing the line to start lap seventeen under a tenth of a second behind to start the last three laps. Another lap and Redding kept showing Razgatlioglu that he was right behind him, powering past him down the straight to start lap eighteen, but Razgatlioglu lifted Redding's leg with his front tyre as he pushed past into turn one on the brakes. Alvaro Bautista led Loris Baz almost nine seconds further back with Michael Ruben Rinaldi, Leon Haslam and Garrett Gerloff fighting over fifth. 

Scott Redding took the lead into turn one of the penultimate lap, but Razgatlioglu held a tighter line on the exit strike back. The last lap started with Razgatlioglu in the lead, but not by much. Loris Baz and Alvaro Bautista swapped places a couple of times over nine seconds off the lead battle. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu was able to stretch out enough of a lead over Redding to cross the line as Alvaro Bautista crashed out on the last corner, mimicking Rea's earlier crash. As Bautista crashed out, Loris Baz took the last step of the podium with Michael Ruben Rinaldi, Leon Haslam and Garrett Gerloff over two seconds further back.

Toprak Razgatlioglu took time out of his schedule of cool down lap stoppies to grab a broom and clean a stretch of green paint before he headed to Parc Fermé. Jonathan Rea was assessed by the medical centre and, after multiple contusions and a left elbow abrasion, will be assessed for fitness before warm-up tomorrow. Scott Redding thought the fight between Rea and Razgatlioglu crossed the line a few times, and he wasn't happy with Razgatlioglu's hard lunge into turn one. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu's win put him forty five points clear of Jonathan Rea with Scott Redding only thirty four points off Rea.

2021 Portimao World Superbike Superpole Result: Lap Record Pace

World Superbike was fifteen minutes of qualifying, with riders getting two of their three Pirelli SCX tyres. Pirelli restricted the SCX to just this session and the Superpole race on Sunday, deeming it unusable for the feature races. Alex Lowes was ruled unfit and didn't get to take part in qualifying.

Jonathan Rea opened qualifying with a blistering 1'40.697 on the qualifying tyre, with Toprak Razgatlioglu second quickest, in spite of transponder issues, ahead of Michael van der Mark. Scott Redding and Andres Locatelli knocked van der Mark down to fifth after setting late first laps, avoiding traffic. Leon Haslam also wedged a lap to split Rea and Razgatlioglu as everyone else was in the pits. 

Jonathan Rea and Tito Rabat were the first riders out of the pits, followed by Eugene Laverty and Jonas Folger who was still outside the 107% limit for qualifying. Rea immediately set a 1'40.524 as a target, three tenths quicker than everyone's first lap. Eugene Laverty crashed out at turn thirteen, but riders that encountered the brief yellow flag before he picked his BMW up were on out laps, not setting times. 

As the flag came out, Toprak Razgatlioglu, down in fifth place, hit the flag as the only man on a fast lap, setting a new lap record of 1'40.219 to claim pole position, knocking Jonathan Rea into second place. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu sat in pole position, ahead of Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam. Scott Redding headed Michael van der Mark and Alvaro Bautista on the second row, with Andrea Locatelli, Garrett Gerloff and Loris Baz rounding out the third row.

2021 Portimao World Supersport Superpole Result: Watch Out For Those Yellow Flags

World Supersport Superpole qualifying was twenty minutes of qualifying at the Portuguese track. Riders would once again encounter yellow flags that cancelled a lap record.

Quickly deposing Randy Krummenacher, Can Oncu held the top spot after one lap, with a 1'26.034 out of the gate followed by a 1'44.077, a new lap record. Jules Cluzel, Niki Tuuli and Dominique Aegerter held the following three places with twelve minutes left. As riders pitted in, Manuel Gonzalez slipped into second place.

After the mid-session break, a handful of riders were on pace to beat the lap record, and Jules Cluzel was the first to tale the top spot with a 1'43.908, with Dominique Aegerter missing out by under two hundredths of a second and Niki Tuuli another two behind him. As the flag came out, Jules Cluzel held the top spot, but Manuel Gonzalez, possibly meeting the yellow flags at turn one, was on pace to steal pole position back, and he set a 1'43.854 to do so. 

Shogo Kawasaki's crash in turn one brought out yellow flags and it took a while to ratify the results after taking laps that passed his crash off the table.

Manuel Gonzalez set a new lap record for pole position, but it was taken from him due to the yellow flags, giving Jules Cluzel pole position alongside Dominique Aegerter Niki Tuuli on the front row. Manuel Gonzalez headed the second row, with Can Oncu and Raffaele De Rosa while Steven Odendaal couldn't manage better than seventh, heading Federico Caricasulo and Philipp Oettl on the third row.

2021 Austin Moto2 FP2 Result: No Rival For Raul

Track surface was nice and dry for the final session of the day but despite the improved conditions, no one found a cure for the speed of Raul Fernandez. After leading a damp FP1, the rookie was quick to resume the lead with a significant advantage early in FP2 and resisted all challengers to end Friday at the top of the timesheets. Teammate Remy Gardner had a more difficult session, starting at the bottom of the top 15 and needing some lengthy repairs after an unfortunate collision with Tetsuta Nagashima mid-session. However, the championship leader was quick to get up to speed and threatened Fernandez in the final time attack, reducing his lead to two tenths of a second. Sam Lowes had a brief stint in the lead before settling for third, six tenths behind the rookie.

Speaking of rookies, Tony Arbolino also made a solid start in Texas, showing the way to Aron Canet in the top five. Augusto Fernandez kept close in sixth, while Simone Corsi in seventh position was the final rider to post a time within a second of the leader. Jake Dixon, Marco Bezzecchi and Marcel Schrotter rounded out the top 10 positions, while Marcos Ramirez, Xavi Vierge, Ai Ogura and home favourite Cameron Beaubier make up the provisional top 14, leaving Fabio Di Giannantonio out by only nine thousandths of a second. Luck didn’t help Jorge Navarro much either, the Spaniard only putting four dry laps on the board due to technical issues, possibly a consequence of an early crash in FP1.

2021 Austin MotoGP FP2 Result: Marquez vs Miller – The Dry Edition

The pimply hills of COTA were alive with the sound of slick Michelins for the first time today and the margins got tighter in the premier class. One thing did not change though and the Marquez rodeo was back to its most challenging, particularly for Dorna’s on-board camera stabiliser. The Honda man was one half-second step ahead of the competition for much of the session and only a late switch to soft fresh rubber allowed his rivals some time in the limelight, but Marquez quickly resumed control at the front. A mistake at turn 12 for the Spaniard allowed Jack Miller to get only one hundredth of a second away in the closing stages, the two men with the advantage after day one in Texas.

Fabio Quartararo unsurprisingly enjoyed his dry time more than the wet FP1 and quickly climbed up the timesheets, even leading briefly, before getting demoted to third, two tenths off the lead. Pol Espargaro’s late charge promoted him to fourth, with Takaaki Nakagami adding a third Honda to the top five. Pecco Bagnaia, Jorge Martin and Johann Zarco made sure that Ducati was well represented as well, the trio around half a second off top spot. The Suzukis spent a lot of the session outside of the top 10 and although both of their riders picked up the pace for the 10-minute time attack, only Alex Rins managed to hold onto his position in ninth, before incurring another taxi charge from Miller. Teammate Joan Mir took a brief trip to the top 10 but eventually dropped to 13th, nine tenths of a second behind Marquez.

Enea Bastianini snatched the final top 10 position on his final flying lap, demoting the top KTM of Brad Binder to 11th place, around seven tenths off the lead. Teammate Miguel Oliveira was in the mix at the front early in the session but a late crash at turn 12 dropped him to the bottom of the top 20 instead, ahead of the sole Aprilia rider this weekend. Aleix Espargaro joined the crash list a few seconds before the Portuguese rider did, while on a personal best lap time and subsequently failed to progress from 19th place. A notable mention goes to the returning Andrea Dovizioso in 14th position, less than a second off the lead and only four hundredths of a second behind the reigning world champion.

2021 Austin Moto3 FP2 Result: Salac Demotes Antonelli

After a wet morning at the Circuit of the Americas, the lightweight class welcomed a dry FP2 and Niccolò Antonelli’s FP1 benchmark didn’t stand a chance in the much-improved conditions. The Italian did come close to reclaiming the top of the timesheets, with a couple stints at the front in the session but had to surrender top spot to Filip Salac for the final couple of minutes by eight hundredths of a second. After leading he way early on, Dennis Foggia dropped to third, one tenth off the lead and another tenth ahead of Jaume Masia.

Before adding a pretty nice save to his portfolio, rookie Xavier Artigas secured fifth, less than three tenths off the lead. Pedro Acosta kept his speed in the dry conditions, half a second off top spot and three tenths ahead of Romano Fenati. Deniz Öncü, Andrea Migno and John McPhee completed the top 10, with Stefano Nepa, Jeremy Alcoba, Ayumu Sasaki and Sergio Garcia climbing into the combined top 14 placements. Izan Guevara and Darryn Binder narrowly missed out, around one second and a half off the leader’s time.

2021 Austin Moto2 FP1 Result: Rapid Raul

The intermediate class got the best of the conditions on Friday morning, with a pretty convincing dry line but lap times were still quite a way off the usual in Texas. The glimpse of sunshine helped riders improve their times throughout FP1 and the lead changed hands frequently, until Raul Fernandez claimed the headlines on his final flying lap. The rookie made a fast start, almost two tenths of a second faster than Bo Bendsneyder, who also bided his time to climb the timesheets. Marcos Ramirez put his name at the top for quite a bit of the session, before dropping to third, narrowly ahead of Marcel Schrotter. A slightly bigger gap kept Augusto Fernandez in fifth, followed by Jake Dixon and local favourite Cameron Beaubier.

Tony Arbolino, Hafizh Syahrin and Aron Canet completed the top 10, while Remy Gardner in 11th position was the final rider posting a time within a second of his teammate. Albert Arenas, Fabio Di Giannantonio and Sam Lowes provisionally hold top 14 placements, the British rider dropping down the timesheets after briefly leading earlier in the session. At the other end of the timesheets, Stefano Manzi could not take part in the action on Friday, as sanction for not notifying Race Direction prior to testing and exceeding the test day limit in the lead-up to this race weekend.
