Brad Binder is on the brink of clinching the Moto3 world championship after yet another victory, this time at Misano.
The South African rode an intelligent race, timing his overtake on Enea Bastianini to perfection. This leaves the South African with a championship lead of over 106 points, meaning a second place or better at Aragon will give him the world title.
Enea Bastianini had to settle for second, after leading for a large part of the race. The Italian was unable to get away from Binder, with the Gresini rider being half a second slower than the South African whilst leading. This helped Joan Mir and Nicolo Bulega catch up with the leading two.
Mir and Bulega fought throughout the race, but it was Mir who was able to take the final podium spot. Behind them was Jakub Kornfeil, Andrea Locatelli and Aron Canet.
Phillip Oettl, Hiroki Ono and Fabio Di Giannantonio rounded out the top ten. It was another dissapointing weekend for Jorge Navarro, who crashed out, effectively ending his championship ambitions.
The Moto3 bikes return in two weeks time at Aragon.
