2012 Assen Moto2 FP1 Result: Espargaro Dominates First Practice

Pol Espargaro has got his weekend at Assen off to a flying start, the HP Tuenti Pons team rider dominating the first session of free practice for the Moto2 class. Espargaro had a gap over over half a second for most of the session, with only Andrea Iannone getting anywhere near towards the end. Tito Rabat took 3rd spot, over eight tenths off the time of his teammate, while Thom Luthi ended the session in 4th, ahead of Claudio Corti and Marc Marquez. Scott Redding took 7th place, ahead of a brace of FTRs, Alex de Angelis' Forward Racing team having abandoned the Suter for the FTR from Assen onwards, the man from San Marino finishing ahead of Simone Corsi.
