Mahindra's other driver Sarath Kumar also had a good race at Mugello Circuit before he took an unfortunate retirement due to techincal issues.
Moretti started the race from the pole, thanks to the outstanding performance displayed in the two qualifying sessions, while Kumar got off from the 8th row and the 22nd spot on the grid.
Moretti got a fantastic start of the race and he quickly extended his leadership on the opponents.
Kumar, on the other hand, didn't get the best start but he was able to settle into a good rhythm as he overtook several riders before pulling out.
"We started this season in the best way possible. My start from the grid was a good one and since I was in the lead I tried to push at my best to get the best margin possible. I was able to do so and that allowed me to just manage the advantage in the second part of the race.
"During the course of the week-end I got to know both bike and time much better and I can say we're still not at 100% but surely there's good room for improvements. I would like to thank my team that gave me a very competitive bike and I'm looking forward to the next event, that will take place at Imola," Moretti said after the race.
