2012 Brno Moto2 FP1 Result: Espargaro Fastest As Red Flags Come Out Again

Red flags continue to be a feature of the first morning of practice at Brno. The second session in a row was stopped for safety conditions, this time after Claudio Corti's Italtrans Kalex had destroyed a section of air fence after the Italian had crashed. Corti walked away unscathed, but the air fence his bike hit had to be replaced.

Pol Espargaro came out on top of the restarted session, the HP Tuenti rider putting in a very fast lap at the end of the session. The Spaniard displaced Thomas Luthi, who had looked strong throughout, the Interwetten rider bumped down into 2nd, ahead of Simone Corsi on the IODA FTR. Mika Kallio took 4th spot on the Marc VDS Racing Kales, ahead of Andrea Iannone and championship leader Marc Marquez. Marquez was unable to match the pace of the front runners throughout, ending the session in 6th, ahead of Nico Terol.
