In the San Marino GP of the MotoE in Misano, Mattia Casadei takes the victory in Race 1 and becomes the new MotoE World Champion. The HP Pons Los40 team rider precedes Hector Garzò and Nicholas Spinelli at the finish line.

Race 1 of the MotoE of the San Marino GP in Misano – In the last round of the 2023 MotoE season, at the Marco Simoncelli Circuit in Misano, Mattia Casadei (HP Pons Los 40) wins race 1 and mathematically becomes the MotoE World Champion.
Casadei won the race ahead of Hector Garzò (Dynavolt Intact GP MotoE) and teammate Nicholas Spinelli.
At the start of race 1 only three riders were elegible for the MotoGP electric class title: Casadei, Jordi Torres (Openbank Aspar Team) and Matteo Ferrari (Felo Gresini MotoE). However, Casadei had a consistent lead of 21 points over the Spaniard and 22 over the Italian rider. Ferrari compromised its chances of winning the title yesterday when it was stripped of pole position due to irregular tire pressure. The rider of the Gresini team thus started from tenth position on the grid and finished the race in sixth place.
Torres, however, had to say goodbye to his hopes of fighting for the title at the start of the race, when he made a dramatic jump start, sanctioned with two long lap penalties.

Casadei's race for the title was downhill but this was not the case for the victory in race 1. In the first laps Casadei had to fight with Torres before the Spaniard served the first of two long lap penalties. In the second part of the race, the new world champion had to fight lap after lap against Hector Garzò, author of the fastest lap of the race. The Dynavolt Intact GP team rider attempted in several ways to take the lead but Casadei resisted, taking the victory by 21 thousandths.
Although Casadei would have been champion even by finishing second, the rider did not want to miss the opportunity to become world champion by winning the race on his home circuit of Misano.
Crashed during the race, without consequences: Rabat, Mantovani, Granado, Pons and Migno.
Before the definitive end of the 2023 MotoE season, race 2 start at 16:10.
