CORTESE SHOWS HIS CLASS


GERMAN Sandro Cortese really had nothing to prove at Phillip Island after wrapping up the inaugural Moto3 Championship for KTM the week before in Malaysia.

But after starting from pole, he battled for the race lead before easing away to win by 2.108 seconds from Miguel Oliveira (Estrella Galicia Suter Honda).

Behind them, Australian Arthur Sissis , Cortese’s Red Bull KTM Ajo team-mate was keeping the crowd energized as he battled for third with Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia Suter Honda), Danny Kent (Red Bull KTM Ajo), Romano Fenati (Team Italia FMI FTR Honda), Alessandro Tonucci (Team Italia FMI FTR Honda), and Efren Vazquez (JHK t-shirt Laglisse FTR Honda).

Sissis fought off every challenger to take the final podium spot, his first, to help give KTM a 1-3-5 finish
