Rinaldi took his first WorldSBK win for the factory Aruba.it Ducati team during Saturday’ race one at Misano - second career win after Aragon 2020. 

Rinaldi made an aggressive start which saw him come close to contact with Rea at turn two, and then Razgatlioglu at turn five. 

By the end of the first lap Rinaldi was leading after starting fourth on the grid, which is the same position he starts this morning’s Superpole race from. 

The race looked to be heading towards a duel for the win between Rinaldi and Rea, until the six-time world champion produced a Marc Marquez type save after losing the front with 12 laps to go. 

Rea managed to lose just one spot to Razgatlioglu but was unable to close back in on the Yamaha rider. 

Redding was less than impressed with his Ducati machine(looked like front tyre problems) and was seen shaking his head on multiple occasions. Redding came home fourth but was well away from the podium battle even with Rea’s huge moment.
