2018 Brno Moto2 FP1 Result: Easy Morning For Schrotter

With temperatures knocking on the doors of the 40 degrees, it still felt very much like summer holiday by the time the intermediate class hit the tarmac. The man who enjoyed it most was Marcel Schrotter, the Dynavolt rider picking up the lead of the session early on and finishing untroubled at the top of the timesheets by nearly half a second.

Romano Fenati also relied on his early benchmark to secure second position but the gaps behind him were much tighter. Pecco Bagnaia finished third, narrowly ahead of Andrea Locatelli – who is becoming a top ten regular in practice – and Alex Marquez another three hundredths of a second back. Mattia Pasini was sixth but the Italian missed out on a top five position by only one hundredth of a second.

Jorge Navarro kept upright long enough to secure seventh position, with Luca Marini, Fabio Quartararo and Miguel Oliveira completing a high profile top ten, although eighth tenths slower than the leader. Lorenzo Baldassarri just about missed out on the first ten positions but together with newlywed Simone Corsi and the Spanish duo of Joan Mir and Xavi Vierge, finished within a second of Schrotter.
