2009 World Superbikes Monza FP1 Result - Fabrizio Makes An Impression At Home

Michel Fabrizio finished top of the timesheets in the first session of Free Practice at Monza for the World Superbike class. Fabrizio and Ben Spies swapped places for the lead throughout the session, both men much faster than the rest for most of practice, but Fabrizio pulled a gap that proved to be unbridgable with 8 minutes of the session left.

The Yamahas are clearly working well at Monza, as Spies' team mate Tom Sykes took 3rd spot, just behind his team mate, with the Suzukis of Max Neukirchner and Yukio Kagayama next in 4th and 5th. Noriyuki Haga was 6th fastest in the session, making it three teams sharing the top 6 spots.
