The rules


Moto2 riders have two 40-minute free practice sessions at the end of which a first ranking is established. Riders ranked higher than fourteenth in the combined results of the first two sessions take part in a fifteen-minute qualifying session (Q1). The four fastest times will be admitted to the session bringing together the top fourteen drivers in the free classification for a new qualifying session (Q2), which will determine the top eighteen places on the grid. Each row is made up of three drivers. To qualify, a driver must have set a time at least equal to 110% of the time recorded by the fastest driver. With the introduction of sprint racing for the MotoGP class, the Moto2 warm-up was abolished last year. New this season, in order to match the MotoGP practice sessions, the Friday session has been designated Free Practice, with no timed qualifying. This is in response to requests from all the teams, who wanted more time to work on fine-tuning their machines.


This season's Moto2 World Championship comprises 22 Grand Prix races over a distance of around one hundred kilometres. Points are awarded to the top 15 finishers according to the following scale: 25, 20, 16, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 pt.

Technical regulations

While the chassis remains unchanged, the main feature of Moto2 is that all the riders have the same engine, which leaves plenty of scope for the talent of the riders. After nine years of exclusivity, the Honda 600cc engine has been replaced for 2019 by a Triumph three-cylinder 765cc engine. The drivers have 7 engines at their disposal for the entire season. For the past three years, all the teams have been using the same electronic management system supplied by the championship promoter. As for tyres, the riders must complete the weekend with 8 front tyres and 9 rear tyres. The minimum weight for bike and rider is 217kg.
