2017 Sepang Moto3 FP1: The Champion Sets The Pace

Newly crowned Moto3 champion Joan Mir grabbed the top time in the first practice Friday at the Sepang curcuit in Malaysia with a 2'13.129 lap with two minutes left in FP1. Adam Norrodin set the second-best lap with no time remaining in practice. The Malaysian, in his home race, bumped Livio Loi to third.

Loi, who remains without a contract for 2018, briefly led the dry session. Romano Fenati, who won in Motegi three weeks ago, took fourth, just in front of Enea Bastinini (5th), completing a Honda sweep of the top five slots.

Bo Bendsneyder, grabbed sixth, eight-tenths of a second off the session's top pace followed by Andrea Migno (7th), Niccolo Antonelli (8th) to complete a set of three KTMs in a row. Jorge Martin (9th) and Gabriel Rodrigo rounded out the top 10.
