2018 Mugello Moto3 FP1 Result: Martin Masters Mugello

A cloudy but warm morning set the scene for the opening session of the weekend but the plot was more of what we’ve gotten accustomed to. Namely, Jorge Martin setting camp at the top of the timesheets early in the session, then going on to improve on his own benchmark in a final attack. Things got a little more unusual behind the Spaniard – if not in names, it did in time gaps.

Aron Canet was the one to get closest to his leading compatriot, the Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider trailing Martin by nearly three tenths of a second. There was a chasm behind the duo throughout the best part of the session, until a final charge reduced the gaps somewhat. Jerez winner Philipp Oettl made a late charge to jump into third, four tenths off the leader, with Andrea Migno coming off his Le Mans podium with renewed motivation and into fourth position in FP1.

Niccolo Antonelli kept reasonably close in fifth, over seven tenths of a second slower than Martin. John McPhee, still championship leader Marco Bezzecchi and temporary Le Mans victor Fabio Di Giannantonio were the final men within a second of the leader, occupying places six to eight.

Nicolo Bulega made a surprise appearance at the business end, although a full second off Martin, while reformed rodeo rider Jakub Kornfeil completed the top ten. Enea Bastianini has a bit of ground to recover from 15th position, as is the case for Le Mans’ actual winner, Albert Arenas, in 20th position after the first session of the day.
