Le Mans (France) (AFP) –


Spain's Alex Rins notched up his second win of the season in the French Moto2 Grand Prix on Sunday to go top of the world championship standings.

The Kalex rider comfortably saw off Italian Simone Corsi (Speed Up) by almost two seconds with Rins' Swiss teammate Thomas Luthi taking third at Le Mans' Bugatti circuit.

This was the fourth Moto2 success and 12th overall for Rins, who opened his 2016 account at the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin in mid-April.
