The man who landed the first blow in the fight to be crowned Rookie of the Year, meanwhile, was Enea Bastianini (Italtrans Racing Team). Taking P9 and finishing just ahead of the experienced Vierge, it was an impressive performance from the Italian. His closest challenger for the honour of top debutant was Fabio Di Giannantonio (+Ego Speed Up) in P11, a second ahead of Binder, so he’ll be looking to turn the tables quick. Jorge Martin (Red Bull KTM Ajo), meanwhile, took a point on his debut, but the reigning Moto3™ World Champion has since had some surgery. How will he fare in what seems like a close fight for the rookies?
