2013 Valencia Moto3 FP1 Result: Salom Announces His Intent

The championship leaders all wanted to make a statement in the first free practice at the Valencia circuit in Spain. Luis Salom, current points leader, spoke the loudest with a fast lap of 1'40.403, a time that puts him two-tenths of a second clear of second fastest and second in the championship Maverick Vinales. Jonas Folger ended FP1 as third fastest, one tenth ahead of Alex Rins. Rookie Rins, third in the championship, sits six-tenths behind Salom in what should prove to be an exciting and likely hard-fought final race of 2013. A mere five points separates the top three riders going into the 17th Moto3 race of the season.
