2016 Spielberg Moto3 FP1 Result: Binder Braves The Cold

We might hope for the fight to heat up this weekend but the weather did not. With the track displaying some mere fourteen degrees in temperature, the riders gingerly took to the new Red Bull Ring.

Brad Binder was the early leader, the first rider into the 1:38s and he kept shaving tenths off his time until dropping down to 1:37.902 with little over four minutes left of the session. Joan Mir and Fabio Quartararo joined him in the 38 club, the trio switching places at the top for a good part of the session.

Andrea Migno, Bo Bendsneyder and Hiroki Ono sneaked into fourth, fifth and sixth in the final seconds of the session. Romano Fenati lingered outside the top ten for most of the session before finally jumping into seventh and trying to get up to speed as fast as his title challenge would require.

Enea Bastianini continued a decent run of form, staying in fourth place for much of FP1 but dropping back to ninth as others hurried to get some late fast laps in. Jorge Navarro eased into the new challenge, starting in eleventh and dropping back all the way into nineteenth position.

For a new track the incidents were few and far between, some harmless slips and slides here and there. Several riders were struggling to keep it within the white lines into the first and reconfigured last turn, Fabio Quartararo seeing several of his times cancelled.
