Joan Mir finally clinched the Moto3 world title after taking victory at Phillip Island.

After dominating for almost the entire season, Mir would finally win the title after the race was red flagged for rain. The session had gone past two thirds race distance, meaning it was stopped.

This meant Mir beat out Romano Fenati, who needed to beat Mir to have any chance of staying in the race. The pair will meet again in Moto2 next year, with both riders moving up to the class.

So Mir took victory, in front of Livio Loi in second and Jorge Martin in third. Gabriel Rodrigo was fourth, with Enea Bastianini fifth. Fenati could only manage sixth place, which wasn’t enough to keep him in the title hunt.

Ayumu Sasaki had a race to remember, with the Japanese rider finishing seventh. Adam Norrodin was eighth, with Tatsuki Suzuki ninth. Lorenzo Della Porta was tenth.

With two rounds remaining, the Moto3 riders return in Malaysia next week.
