2019 Mugello Moto3 FP1 Result: Antonelli Feels At Home

It was a glorious welcome to the Tuscan hills for the world championship and the lightweight class were the first to clear away the cobwebs. They did a reasonably good job too, with few off track excursions and plenty of the usual suspects crowding the top of the timesheets. To the delight of the locals, it was an Italian taking the first headline of the day, Jerez winner Niccolo Antonelli back into the limelight after an unfortunate weekend in France. Gabriel Rodrigo led the way for a while before getting demoted to second by a tenth of a second, ahead of Le Mans victor John McPhee.

With the top three seemingly one step ahead at this stage – that step worth about three tenths – Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Aron Canet were best of the rest, within half a second of the leader. Rookie Can Oncu is starting to make an impression on the timesheets with sixth place in FP1, ahead of veteran-by-comparison Albert Arenas. Alonso Lopez, Tony Arbolino and Tatsuki Suzuki completed the top ten, while Jaume Masia in 11th was the final rider within a second of the leader.

The likes of Jakub Kornfeil, Romano Fenati, Marcos Ramirez and Kaito Toba had more low key starts outside of the top ten but it was just FP1 on a dirty track after all.
