Bezzecchi steals a march in the Rookie of the Year battle

After a brilliant Mugello top five, the Italian now has a clear advantage over host over his fellow premier class newbies

Marco Bezzecchi (Mooney VR46 Racing Team) had himself a Gran Premio Oakley d’Italia to remember! After making history in qualifying by completing a rare rookie double alongside his compatriot and first-time poleman Fabio Di Giannantonio (Gresini Racing MotoGP™), Bezz came on strong in the race to finish fifth after rubbing shoulders with some of the more established names on the grid. A career-best P5 saw him earn 11 valuable Championship points, as his stranglehold on the Rookie of the Year race continues.
