2012 Mugello Moto2 FP1 Result: Espargaro Holds Off Iannone

Pol Espargaro's dominance of practice continues, the Spaniard once again topping the first session of free practice for the Moto2 class at Mugello. His advantage over 2nd place man Andrea Iannone was minimal, however, the Speed Master rider less than a tenth slower than Espargaro. Thomas Luthi took 3rd spot, the Interwetten rider just pipping Tech 3's Bradley Smith. Marc Marquez, now officially confirmed in the Repsol Honda MotoGP team for next year, could manage only the 5th fastest time, a third of a second slower than Espargaro, but Marquez finished ahead of Simone Corsi and Scott Redding.

Looks like the new Speed-Up chassis West scored hasn't helped yet. I'm probably the only one here interested in how he goes though :)
