2018 Moto2 Japan race results: Bagnaia plays safe

Fabio Quartararo started the race from second place. From the beginning he already had a good and consistent Pace. When leading the race, actually he did not do much defending, because Bagnai who was in second place did not do so much pressure.

Bagnaia started from pole position, but his not too ambitious to win. He knew that Quartararo had good speed, so he seemed to choose to play safe not to take a lot of risk.

Second place was enough for Bagnaia to keep few point from Miguel Oliveira.

While in third place is Lorenzo Baldassarri.
