Mattia Casadei defeats Zaccone in delayed MotoE Race 1 at Mugello

A serious fall by Lukas Tulovic caused the 1st MotoE race in Mugello to be stopped early on Saturday afternoon. As there was not enough time for a restart before the start of the Moto3 qualifying, the race was postponed to Saturday evening. It was Mattia Casadei who snatched the victory from Alessandro Zaccone on the last lap and regained the lead in the World Championship. Kevin Zannoni finished fourth behind Hector Garzo.
