2016 Brno Moto2 FP1 Result: Marvellous Morning for Marquez

The chilly conditions during the first practice session for the intermediate class offered a great playground for two riders in particular. Takaaki Nakagami reigned at the top of the timesheets for the first half of the session, Alex Marquez keeping close and taking over for the second half, the duo half a second away from the rest. Umbrellas started to pop up in the final fifteen minutes, Jonas Folger splitting the two riders late into the session.

Danny Kent moved the spotlight to his side of the Leopard garage this weekend with an encouraging fourth position, followed by Lorenzo Baldassarri and fellow Italian Franco Morbidelli, the Marc VDS rider completing a good morning for the blue bikes.

You have to go all the way down to seventh to find the championship leader, Johann Zarco six tenths off Marquez and only a hundredth of a second in front of Sam Lowes. Left with a bit to do in the afternoon session are Thomas Luthi in eleventh position and Alex Rins down in seventeenth place, the Spaniard over a second and a half off the leader.
