2013 Sepang Moto3 FP1 Result: Vinales Leads Opening Foray

Maverick Vinales has topped the time sheets at the conclusion of the first Moto3 free practice session in Sepang. The Spaniard is the only rider competing in the class to have taken victory at the Malaysian circuit previously and showed his affinity with a scorching benchmark time of 2:14.961. He was followed closely by the impressive FTR Honda pair of Alexis Masbou and Jack Miller who both enjoyed spells at the head of the field throughout the session.

Winner of the previous two Grand Prix Alex Rins finished in fourth ahead of Efren Vazquez and championship leader Luis Salom while Isaac Vinales, Brad Binder, Miguel Oliveira and Phillip Oettl rounded out the top ten. Alex Marquez was the first crasher of the weekend and the only rider to come to grief in the session, losing the front at the very quick turn ten. He was unhurt but unable to complete any further laps following the spill due to bike damage, a less than ideal start to proceedings for the young contender.
