Honda NSF250RW riders dominated the Red Bull Ring Moto3 race, once again monopolising the podium. The first race of the day got underway on a damp track, following overnight rain, with enough of a dry line at most corners to convince all riders to fit slick tyres.

Romano Fenati (VNE Snipers Team Honda NSF250RW) was the bravest of the 31 starters, fighting with team-mate Tony Arbolino (VNE Snipers Team Honda NSF250RW) for the first few laps, then escaping out front to cross the line well ahead of his rivals. This was the 23-year-old Italian’s first Grand Prix victory since the 2017 Japanese Grand Prix.

Fenati’s victory also extended Honda’s lead in the Moto3 Constructors World Championship to 45 points. Honda is currently chasing a third consecutive constructors crown in the class

Arbolino chased Fenati home to make it a team one/two, after spending most of the race duelling with John McPhee (Petronas Sprinta Racing Honda NSF250RW). At the finish the pair were separated by just eighth thousandths of a second. The 19-year-old Italian now moves into third overall in the championship, two places ahead of the 25-year-old Briton.

Lorenzo Dalla Porta (Leopard Racing Honda NSF250RW) retook the World Championship lead with an intelligent ride to sixth place, seven tenths of a second behind Spanish team-mate Marcos Ramirez (Leopard Racing Honda NSF250RW). Twenty-year-old Italian Dalla Porta now leads the title chase by a single point from Spaniard Aron Canet, who crossed the line in tenth place, just behind Niccolo Antonelli (Sic58 Squadra Corse Honda NSF250RW).

Ai Ogura (Honda Team Asia Honda NSF250RW) and Kaito Toba (Honda Team Asia Honda NSF250RW) both had impressive pace in practice but were less lucky today.

Ogura did well to finish 12th, after starting from the rear of the grid, due to a post-qualifying penalty. The 18-year-old from Tokyo rode well in the race and will make sure he doesn’t make the same mistake again in qualifying. This was his fifth consecutive points score.

Toba started from the second row of the grid but rode too carefully in the early stages, when there were so many damp parts of the track. That left the 19-year-old from Fukuoka with too much work to do once the track improved. He missed the World Championship points by just three positions.

Ayumu Sasaki (Petronas Sprinta Racing Honda NSF250RW) rode to his third consecutive points score in 13th position.

The MotoGP paddock now heads across the English Channel for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on August 25.

We were looking for this victory for a long time and getting it here, on a track where I never got the podium, and with the pole position of yesterday, is something amazing. We worked well, my bike was perfect and this win is for my family, my friends, my team and all the people that stayed closed to me in these two difficult years. Today I gave my heart in this race.

I am happy for this podium. I was not at 100 percent this weekend. For sure we could do more, but my goal is still to be constant and this second place is important for the championship.

It was tough at the end, because I was almost a little too comfortable at the start when we stretched out the lead to four seconds. I just wasn’t able to chase down Romano as he was escaping, and I could see the guys closing me down from behind as well. I knew that my only hope on the last lap was to get a good exit out of the last corner and get the drive, and that’s exactly what I did. I was actually a little disappointed on the slowing down lap because I didn’t realise until I entered pit lane that I was third! We’ve worked hard for the last few races and it was nice to be able to reward the team with a podium.

To start from the back of the grid penalised my race. This weekend I didn't have a good pace riding alone. I tried to follow other riders to make a lap time, and this is the main problem I had. And this is the reason for the penalties. My feeling now is awful, but I should try to accept it and don't make the same mistake again.

A tough race for me because of the track conditions – half wet, half dry. I must improve in these conditions. I tried to stay on the track at the beginning. During the first six laps I rode very carefully, maybe too much. After that, I started to go faster, but it was too late, and the gap was too big. The only positive is that I finished the race. Next race I will try to start from zero, resetting everything.
