Subdued begin of the season for the Italians in Moto2. Just one podium in three GPs, a really completely different scenario in comparison with the previous couple of years … Was it again from Jerez?
The 2021 Moto2 season didn’t begin as positively as maybe anticipated. In all probability additionally on account of the truth that our youngsters acquired used to it properly. In truth, in recent times the Italian drivers have at all times distinguished themselves, reporting not less than two wins within the first three Grand Prix of the championship. For the second, nevertheless, we’re solely registering one podium for our colours, gained within the first occasion of the season, solely to stay dry within the final two races. One thing that hasn’t occurred for years …
Let’s return in time as regards to Moto2, we bear in mind it born in 2010 to switch the 250cc. Within the first three years of the brand new world class we’ve got at all times recorded not less than one podium within the first three GPs.

A break of some years follows with no Italian current on the rostrum within the first races of the season, to then evaluation the Italian flag in 2016: Corsi wins a third place in Qatar. However it’s from the next 12 months that our normal bearers explode.
The 12 months 2017 is operating and Morbidelli begins his season of glory with a trio of victories within the first three GPs of the 12 months. The subsequent championship is not any much less: Bagnaia wins the primary race, Pasini wins within the second, it’s nonetheless Bagnaia who triumphs within the third. And 2019? It begins with two victories within the first two GPs, the signing is that of Baldassarri. Additionally final season noticed our boys instantly protagonists, beginning with Baldassarri and Bastianini on the second and third step of the rostrum in Qatar. Following the success of Marini in Jerez (after the lengthy break), the duplicate on the identical monitor lastly sees the triumph of Bastianini.
On this 2021, then again, we’ve got a slightly subdued begin for the Italians. On the scoresheet up to now there may be solely Fabio Di Giannantonio’s thrilling podium within the first spherical in Losail, blown to the final by his compatriot Bezzecchi. Within the Qatari duplicate the latter is the most effective, once more 4th on the checkered flag, and in Portimao he’s at all times the most effective of ours, however this time sixth on the end. Is it the start of a fancy season or the prelude to a “diesel” classic for our youngsters? The monitor will inform us this, beginning with the stage in Jerez subsequent week.
