2017 Magny-Cours World Superbike FP1 Results: Rea Spoils Camier's Fun

Leon Camier, forty five minutes into the session, set the quickest time on his MV Agusta and improved it a couple of times before Jonathan Rea came out of the pits and reclaimed the top spot a lap from the flag on his Kawasaki. Lorenzo Savadori continued Aprilia's recent form in third place, holding off both Marco Melandri and Chaz Davies on the Ducatis.

Tom Sykes was given the green light to race and will be reviewed after this session, but it's unlikely that he will be able to stop Jonathan Rea from winning his third consecutive World Superbike title this weekend. Rea needs only five points more than Tom Sykes in the first race to secure the title, a win guaranteeing it regardless of what anyone else does.

Rea is 120 points ahead of Sykes... So he needs 5 points *more_than_Sykes* tomorrow to claim a third consecutive championship. If he comes 11th and Sykes wins, or even just comes 13th, Rea has his "five points", but it carries over to Sunday and beyond as there will be 5 races to go and the gap won't yet be 125 points.
