Interesting that when Kent got to the head of the chasing group in fourth the gap looked to be closing, but when Antonelli got past him that stopped. That's not to say that Antonelli didn't deserve to beat Kent, but that his race effort may have been better served if he'd let Kent reel in the lead group before he pounced.

Just shows the difference between being able to lap fast and being able to race. Kent is really improving in both areas this year.

Agree with Cammyspop, also worth noting too that Kent was almost taken out by Louis Rossi earlier in the race, while sitting up to avoid Cortese coming at him too, and after recovering from that he later revealed he had gear shift problems on his bike, all a part of racing, but Kent managed these factors well to still finish with a good race result.

Epic race from all the riders on the Podium too, Moto3 is always great entertainment!
