2019 Austin Moto2 FP1 Result: Schrotter On Top

Marcel Schrotter blitzed the field to take the top Moto2 position Friday in FP1 at the Circuit of the Americas. Schrotter’s 2’10.853 easily eclipsed teammate Thomas Luthi’s second-place lap by nearly half a second.  Jorge Navarro rounded out the top three in dry, clear conditions at the Austin, Texas track.

 

Luca Marini saved his best for last with a final lap that put him fourth-fastest, just ahead of Sam Lowes. Alex Marquez, who topped the timesheet early on, slid to sixth by the session’s end followed by Remy Gardner (7th) who achieved his first Moto2 podium two weeks ago in Argentina.

 

Xavi Vierge (8th) finished more than a second behind the leader, closely paced by Brad Binder and Mattia Pasini, who is a wildcard replacement for injured Augusto Fernandez. Pasini finished seventh in last year’s contest. Rain is expected for Saturday's FP3 and qualifying.
