2013 Qatar Moto3 FP1 Result: Folger Tops First Session of 2013 Season

Jonas Folger has drawn the first blood of the 2013 Moto3 season, topping the first session of free practice at Qatar. The German leads Spaniard Alex Rins by nearly four tenths of a second, while Luis Salom took 3rd. Efren Vazquez ended the session in 4th spot, and was the last rider to get within a second of Folger.

Conditions at the circuit are tricky. The weather is good, warm temperatures keeping the dew at bay which can form late in the evening, but the track is incredibly dusty due to construction work going on just across the access road to the circuit, causing dust and dirt to be blown onto the surface.
