2019 Philip Island World Supersport FP1 Results: Krummenacher Dominates Red Flagged Session

After holding the fastest time for most of the session, Randy Krummenacher was deposed by Federico Caricasulo but at the session's end, he took back the top spot, almost four tenths quicker than his rivals. Thomas Gradinger split Krummenacher and Caricasulo in the dying minutes and Raffaele De Rosa, the quickest non-Yamaha rider, was fourth quickest ahead of the French pairing of Jules Cluzel and Lucas Mahias, Mahias having switched to Kawasaki for 2019.

A red flag in the middle of the session caused a delay, but it didn't affect the results.

The World Supersport race on Sunday will be split with a pit-stop introduced to ensure the tyres can last the duration, with no tyres being allowed to be used for more than ten laps of the reduced sixteen lap race.

Pirelli cannot supply tires to last sixteen laps around Phillip island? Really, so the race will be decided by the pit crew, Formula boring style.

What the supersports have so much more power than 2018, or is it lack of data & experience at the island? I don't get it. Thought they have been racing there for quite some time.

Bring back multi tyre suppliers.
