2020 Brno Moto3 FP1 Result: Rodrigo Returns

After the inescapable sauna of Andalucia, the championship moves to the more sensible temperatures of Brno at a familiar time of year. Perhaps a touch overconfident, the lightweight class opened the show with a handful of harmless crashes and ended with the familiar sight of Gabriel Rodrigo at the top of the timesheets. The Argentine rider continues to put his name in prime position in practice, this time one tenth of a second faster than early leader Kaito Toba.

Raul Fernandez made a fine start into the top three, closely followed by Dennis Foggia, while Ayumu Sasaki completed the top five but was over half a second slower than the foursome ahead. Tony Arbolino and Albert Arenas were just a touch slower than the Japanese rider, with John McPhee, Romano Fenati and Riccardo Rossi completing the top ten as the final men within a second of the leader.

The likes of Andrea Migno, Celestino Vietti or Niccolo Antonelli had a tame morning outside of the top 15, while Jaume Masia got demoted to 21st after suffering two crashes throughout the session. Andalucia victor Tatsuki Suzuki also had an early tumble that saw him end FP1 in 24th position.
