2019 Silverstone Moto2 FP1 Result: Di Giannantonio Takes The Spoils

The intermediate class got a first taster of the new surface at Silverstone and riders seemed to enjoy it straight away, nine of them blasting past the old lap record and 17 men finishing within one second of the leader. Said leader ended up being exceptional rookie Fabio Di Giannantonio, who finished eighth hundredths of a second ahead of Jorge Navarro. Tom Luthi fought his way into third, followed by championship leader Alex Marquez.

Only two tenths off top spot, Remy Gardner joined the top five, with a trio of compatriots Lorenzo Baldassarri, Luca Marini and Mattia Pasini occupying positions six to eight on the timing screens. Augusto Fernandez and Brad Binder rounded out the top ten, while Bo Bendsneyder, Tetsuta Nagashima, Sam Lowes, Dominique Aegerter, Stefano Manzi, Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge also posted best times within a second of the leader.

Marcel Schrotter was just over the one second mark in these early stages, while Enea Bastianini was limping home into 25th spot, clearly suffering from his unfortunate crash last time out.
