2020 Emilia-Romagna Moto3 FP1 Result: Fernandez Flies Fast

Barely a blink later, the lightweight class was back on track, chasing the first headline of the second weekend in Misano. Jaume Masia spent the most time at the top of the timesheets in FP1 but ultimately it was Raul Fernandez who posted the fastest time yet over the two weekends in Italy and the first 1:41, nearing lap record. Having sat out the first 10 minutes of the session through penalty, Jeremy Alcoba came within two tenths of the leader, as did Dennis Foggia, while Gabriel Rodrigo and Andrea Migno completed the top five.

Masia dropped to sixth after leading early on, less than three tenths slower than Fernandez and a tenth faster than Filip Salac. Championship leader Albert Arenas kept close in eighth position, with Darryn Binder and Ayumu Sasaki rounding out the top ten.

Championship contender Ai Ogura was 12th but only half a second off the lead, having also sat out ten minutes of FP1 due to practice shenanigans last time out. One of the few riders to escape penalty, John McPhee had a low key morning down in 20th place, one full second off top spot, while Tatsuki Suzuki’s morning was quite eventful, with a late crash at turn 4 leaving him 24th and not working much magic before that either.
