2016 Phillip Island Moto2 FP1 Result: Folger Leads In Worsening Conditions

The Moto2 FP1 session started wet and the weather only got worse, the rain falling more heavily as the session went on, and the wind picking up into the bargain. The last third of the session saw riders only sporadically take to the track. Those that did risked falling: Franco Morbidelli wrote off his Estrella Galicia MarcVDS Kalex completely, while Luca Marini fell in the final seconds after his rear wheel started aquaplaning in standing water.

Jonas Folger ended the session on top of the timesheets, the German just holding off Danny Kent, the Moto3 champion finding his feet in the wet. Johann Zarco took third spot, though half a second behind Folger, and just a few thousandths ahead of Lorenzo Baldassarri. Alex Rins ended the session in 5th.
