2017 Qatar Moto2 FP1 Result: Luthi Edges Nakagami

Tom Luthi has made good on his status as Moto2 championship favorite, ending the first session of free practice for the intermediate class at Qatar. Luthi led a very close field, Taka Nakagami ending second, just eight hundredths of a second behind Luthi, and less than six hundredths ahead of Miguel Oliveira on the KTM. 

The Marc VDS riders finished the session in fourth and fifth, Franco Morbidelli ahead of Alex Marquez, while Mattia Pasini took sixth spot. Danny Kent was the first Suter home, setting the eighth fastest time, after missing most of the first session with technical problems, and riding without a front mudguard to attempt to combat engine overheating.
