2015 Austin Moto3 FP1 Result: Antonelli Fastest In The Wet

After a 50-minute delay attributed to track staffing issues, the first free practice at Austin's Circuit of the America's ended with Niccolo Antonelli taking the top spot in wet conditions. Antonelli's fast lap of 2'31.668 made him the only rider to dip into the 2.31s during the session at the Texas racetrack. Danny Kent, who led for much of FP1 and finished third in the previous race at the Losail circuit, ended the practice with the second-fastest time but nearly a second from Antonelli's best lap. Andrea Locatelli settled into third, a full two seconds back.

Qatar race-winner Alexis Masbou could do no better in than 14th in the rain as riders initially struggled to get within 20 seconds of the dry practice times in the previous year. In the 2014 FP1, Alex Rins set a 2'17.964 in the dry. Wet weather is expect to continue through the weekend.
