2011 Sepang Moto2 FP1 Result: Aegerter Surprises While Marquez Crashes Early On

Dominique Aegerter caused a surprise in the first session of practice for the Moto2 class at Sepang, the Technomag CIP rider topping the timesheets by the narrowest of margins ahead of Interwetten's Thomas Luthi. Alex de Angelis followed in third, three quarters of a second behind, but just ahead of Andrea Iannone.

But the big news of the Moto2 session was the crash by several riders on the first lap out. Some water left on the track after a brief burst of heavy rain during the MotoGP session caught a bunch of riders out, with Marc Marquez, Bradley Smith, Yonny Hernandez and Jules Cluzel all falling heavily. Marquez came away with a badly bruised shoulder, the injury severe enough to rule him out of the rest of the session, while Bradley Smith suffered suspected broken ribs and is looking likely to miss the race on Sunday.
