What a fantastic race!

Cortese showed a wise head on young shoulders, pulling the pin in the last few laps,

The battle for 2nd was awesome too many overtakes to take it all in,

Fenati showed the talent he has and looking forward to see him next season, he could be a title contender next year, good to see him get a podium at his home race though.

Salom got a good 2nd and with Vinales in 5th closes the gap on 2nd in the championship.

Again moto3 does not disappoint, You just gotta love it!

Totally agree, what a cracking race.

Cortese's intelligent riding looks like it will give him the title over the hot-headed Vinales and with Salom also outscoring Vinales in the race even 2nd spot in the title championship may not be beyond Salom.

I have been pulling for Cortese all year, I think he's a nice guy and he's riding well. He had me in stitches in his post race interview in Portugal, and I like the idea of KTM getting a good result with their sweet looking little bike. So for most of this year I have found myself always hoping that Vinales as the 'obvious' favorite didn't make the championship too simple... But today, when he was shown going back to the garage after the race I really felt sorry for him. It occured to me just how hard and frustrating it must be for him and all the team to see the title slipping away when they were all completey convinced they would win it, and with all of Spain's media and fans expecting them to get the job done. He's only 17!! I just hope that this experience doesn't knock him back too far, he's obviously an excellent rider with a long career ahead of him.

Anyway it was another great race today, I love this class
