2013 Sepang Moto2 FP1 Result: Rabat Dominates Tricky Session

The first Moto2 practice session at Sepang was headed by Tito Rabat, it proved to be a tricky affair, with light sprinkles of rain appearing throughout. The 'in form' rider of the class has scored more points than any other over the last five races and was not deterred by the conditions as he topped the timesheets by almost half a second. Fellow Pons Kalex rider Pol Espargaro ended in second place ahead of Thomas Luthi, Takaaki Nakagami and Mika Kallio.

After his commanding win at the last race in Aragon Nico Terol had to settle for sixth place followed by Alex De Angelis, Julian Simon, Simone Corsi and Johann Zarco. The Frenchman succumbed to the tricky weather late in proceedings and suffered a minor crash, he walked away unharmed. There was also a spill for Indonesian rider Rafid Topan Sucipto who was also uninjured.
