2021 Jerez Moto2 FP3 Result: Gardner Sets The Record Straight

The intermediate class enjoyed perfect conditions to challenge for Q2 spots in FP3 and pretty much everyone attacked the combined timesheets early on. However, the final time attack ended up deciding the hierarchy and it was championship leader Remy Gardner who set a new all time lap record in the final couple of minutes of the session. Both Fabio Di Giannantonio and Jorge Navarro enjoyed short stints at the top of the timing screens before being demoted by a small margin, while Joe Roberts in fourth was the last rider to post a 1:40 time and finished a tenth and a half away from top spot.

Raul Fernandez joined the top five, while Sam Lowes dropped to sixth after leading the way most of the session and skipping the late time attack. He was closely followed by rival Marco Bezzecchi, who posted an identical time to Marcel Schrotter. Augusto Fernandez and Jake Dixon rounded out the top ten, followed by Albert Arenas, who missed out some track time after an early crash at turn 11 but recovered to claim 11th position. The final Q2 places were secured by Xavi Vierge, Aron Canet and Ai Ogura, while the top 26 riders were covered by one second.

2021 Jerez MotoGP FP3 Result: Nakagami Tops Bittersweet Morning For Honda *UPDATED*

The premier class went into battle for precious Q2 positions under a spotless blue sky, after putting the soft-medium tyre combination through its paces. Although the likes of Aleix Espargaro and Franco Morbidelli held top spot in the early stages, Pecco Bagnaia’s FP2 time was not at threat until the final time attack. Trying to avoid a last-minute yellow flag disaster, many riders anticipated the shoot-out and started their charge with 20 minutes left of the session. Fabio Quartararo looked like he would continue his great run in Jerez, had it not been for Takaaki Nakagami’s first and only 1:36 time of the session, posted in the final couple of minutes. The LCR Honda man went unchallenged to the checkered flag, with Quartararo two hundredths of a second slower. An impressive Stefan Bradl placed a second Honda in the top three, only half a tenth behind his leading colleague, while reigning world champion Joan Mir finally managed to skip Q1, although he left it late in the session to show his speed.

Aleix Espargaro dropped to fifth position, ahead of the Yamaha duo of Maverick Viñales and Morbidelli, who posted identical times that were within a tenth of a second of the leader. Pecco Bagnaia’s FP2 time served him well for most of the session, but the Italian eventually found himself out of the top ten and had to rely on his final flying lap to rejoin in eighth place, ahead of Ducati colleague Johann Zarco. Alex Rins snatched the final Q2 ticket, leaving Jack Miller out in the cold by only a hundredth of a second and despite being only two tenths off the lead.

Marc Marquez spent most of the session safely inside the top positions, but the Jerez curse struck once more in the final couple of minutes of the session, when the Honda man hit the airfence at turn 7 at considerable speed. As he wobbled away to the familiar medical centre for a precautionary check after the first crash since his comeback, his name dropped to 12th on the timesheets and into Q1, where he will also be joined by another of the crashers in FP3. Brad Binder suffered an unusual fall going into turn 5 early on and could not go quicker than 13th on his second machine, although the KTM man was less than four tenths off top spot.

UPDATE: Franco Morbidelli's fastest time got cancelled after the session and he got relgated to 11th place on the combined timesheets, joining the Q1 line-up and promoting Miller into the top 10.

2021 Jerez Moto3 FP3 Result: Migno Sets Lap Record

Saturday morning brought perfect track conditions for the lightweight class and after the initial enthusiasm led to some mild tumbles early on, riders turned their focus on the battle for Q2 positions. No harm was done at the top of the combined practice times until the final shoot-out, when Deniz Öncü made the first move but it was Andrea Migno who went on to grab the all time lap record, leaving the young Turkish rider over half a second behind. To make it every worse, Öncü also finished the session in the gravel trap at turn nine, after getting caught up in Sergio Garcia’s crash. John McPhee and teammate Darryn Binder closely followed the leaders, with Filip Salac completing the top five.

Jaume Masia briefly held the lead of the session before dropping to sixth position, ahead of rookie Xavier Artigas. Tatsuki Suzuki in eighth place was one whole second slower than the leader, while Friday fast man Gabriel Rodrigo was one of the few riders not to go any faster on Saturday morning, but his FP2 time was enough to keep him fourth on the combined standings, while ninth in the session. Ayumu Sasaki rounded out the top ten, while the remaining Q2 spots were secured by Yuki Kunii, Jason Dupasquier, Niccolò Antonelli and Romano Fenati, although the Max Racing rider had very limited track time after some bike trouble at the beginning of the session and was saved by the time posted on Friday. The big surprise of FP3 was championship leader Pedro Acosta, who finished the session 16th and will have to take a trip through Q1.

2021 Jerez MotoE FP2 Result: Fast Start For Granado

MotoE’s final session of the day was slow to get going after an early crash for Corentin Perolari prompted a red flag while his machine could safely be removed. Once the session was restarted, FP1 leader Eric Granado promptly reclaimed top spot and kept it to the checkered flag, finishing the day two tenths of a second faster than Miquel Pons. Xavi Cardelus joined the top three, while Alessandro Zaccone was the final rider within half a second of the leader. Dominique Aegerter, Fermín Aldeguer, Mattia Casadei, Matteo Ferrari, Yonny Hernandez and Jordi Torres completed the top ten positions, with the reigning Cup winner one second down on the leader.

2021 Jerez Moto2 FP2 Result: Lowes Leads The Way

Despite the beautiful conditions throughout FP2, the intermediate class were in no rush to go quicker and at the end of the 40 minutes, there was a pretty even split between riders who managed to improve their times from FP1 and those waiting for FP3. Sam Lowes spent a significant amount of time at the top of the timing screens and despite a late attack from championship leader Remy Gardner, the British rider reclaimed top spot at the very end. Gardner finished second, two tenths of a second behind the leader and only one hundredth of a second ahead of Jake Dixon.

Joe Roberts in fourth also finished within three tenths of a second of Lowes, while rookie and early session leader Raul Fernandez completed the top five. Nicolò Bulega in sixth spot was the final rider within half a second of the leader, followed by compatriot Fabio Di Giannantonio and birthday boy Xavi Vierge. Marco Bezzecchi and Augusto Fernandez rounded out the top ten, while the remaining provisional top 14 positions were taken by Stefano Manzi, Jorge Navarro, Marcel Schrotter and Somkiat Chantra. Local favourites Aron Canet and Albert Arenas will be some of the men looking to change that hierarchy on Saturday morning.

2021 Jerez MotoGP FP2 Result: Bagnaia Retaliates

The second outing for the premier class took place under beautiful sunshine in Andalucía and riders set a hot pace at the top of the timing screens. It was the usual contenders at the very top - Yamaha branded for the most part - but in the end it was Pecco Bagnaia's Ducati that blitzed past in the closing stages to claim the lead. Fabio Quartararo reduced the gap from four tenths of a second to less than two but had to make do with second position, ahead of a rapid Aleix Espargaro.

Having held top spot for much of the session, Franco Morbidelli dropped down to fourth, as the final rider to post a time within half a second of the eventual leader. Maverick Viñales made a late jump into the top five, while Takaaki Nakagami led the Honda charge from sixth – although the LCR man briefly threatened top spot too. Miguel Oliveira was the top KTM in the session, ahead of Alex Rins and Johann Zarco, while teammate Brad Binder rounded out the top ten positions in FP2 and on the combined standings.

Honda wildcard Stefan Bradl was the first to miss out on the top ten by only four hundredths of a second andwas faster than Jack Miller and Joan Mir. Marc Marquez was one of the few riders who opted to sit out the late time attack and dropped to 16th on the timesheets, one second off top spot.

2021 Jerez Moto3 FP2 Result: Rodrigo Reclaims Top Spot

The second set of practice sessions in Jerez brought some dark splotches in the sky but it did not trouble the action for the lightweight class, who enjoyed perfect track conditions and quickly improved their FP1 times. Gabriel Rodrigo continues a solid run in Spain and reclaimed control of the timesheets after narrowly missing out in FP1. The Argentinian rider had built up a gap of almost one second halfway through FP2, which was eventually reduced to two tenths of a second by FP1 top man Niccolò Antonelli, despite an early crash at turn 1 for the Italian.

Romano Fenati made a late jump into third position, ahead of a consistently impressive Jason Dupasquier. Darryn Binder started his session by sliding out at turn two but rejoined the action to finish in the top five. Ryusei Yamanaka in sixth was almost two tenths quicker than Andrea Migno, while championship leader Pedro Acosta kept close in eighth spot. Deniz Öncü and Jaume Masia rounded out the top ten positions.

Ayumu Sasaki missed out on the top ten by three hundredths of a second, but has provisionally secured a combined top 14 position, together with Filip Salac, Jeremy Alcoba and Dennis Foggia – the Italian only 22nd in the session but having done enough in FP1 to keep his place for now. Tatsuki Suzuki was once again the first leader of the session but he dropped to 15th on the combined timesheets after a late tumble at turn 1.

2021 Jerez MotoE FP1 Result: Granado Leads Aegerter

The first official session of the MotoE season got underway in Jerez and it was hardly a surprise to see the men who led the way in testing topping the timesheets once more. After Dominique Aegerter claimed top spot early on and followed it up with a tumble, Eric Granado took over for the closing stages of FP1 by seven hundredths of a second. Despite missing out on the final part of the session, Aegerter’s second position was not threatened at all, the next quickest man being reigning Cup winner Jordi Torres, who was almost half a second slower. Matteo Ferrari and rookie Fermín Aldeguer rounded out the top five, while Mattia Casadei, Miquel Pons, Andrea Mantovani, Yonny Hernandez and Alessandro Zaccone completed the top ten positions.

2021 Jerez Moto2 FP1 Result: Gardner Gains Top Spot

The intermediate class didn’t get to close the FP1 show this time around but they still kept us entertained right up to the checkered flag, when championship leader Remy Gardner jumped ahead by a tenth of a second. The Australian had started the session at the top as well, before allowing some of his rivals some airtime, including the likes of Marco Bezzecchi, who got demoted to second position at the end of the session. Sam Lowes had a pretty typical morning, the British rider consistently towards the top end of the timing screens but ending the morning with a light tumble at turn six and settling for third.

Rookie Raul Fernandez kept close – one thousandth of a second close – to the top three, while compatriot Jorge Navarro seemed to enjoy the return to home soil and joined the top five. Fabio Di Giannantonio in sixth was only two tenths off top spot and narrowly ahead of Augusto Fernandez. Somkiat Chantra, Joe Roberts and Jake Dixon completed the top ten, while Nicolò Bulega, Marcel Schrotter, Aron Canet and Albert Arenas are provisionally inside the top 14.

2021 Jerez MotoGP FP1 Result: Binder Robs Aprilia

There were many people in the premier class who were eager to return to Jerez and everyone got a warm and dry welcome for FP1. Brad Binder enjoyed his return to the scene of his MotoGP debut and celebrated it by dethroning one of the home favourites, Aleix Espargaro, from the top of the timesheets by almost two tenths of a second at the checkered flag. Espargaro kept Aprilia in the limelight for much of the session, before having to concede top spot to the KTM man. Marc Marquez also had a bittersweet comeback to a track he loves but that didn’t love him back quite as much last year. The Honda man steadily climbed the timesheets to end the morning in third spot, less than three tenths off the leader.

Pecco Bagnaia had a pretty busy morning out on track and was slow to join the top end of the action but his late attack promoted him to fourth, ahead of early session leader and last year’s Jerez hero, Fabio Quartararo. Johann Zarco added another Ducati to the mix in sixth spot, ahead of KTM’s Miguel Oliveira and Honda’s Pol Espargaro. Maverick Viñales trailed his compatriot by only one thousandth of a second, while world champion Joan Mir managed to stay in the top ten despite limited running in the first half of FP1. The Suzuki man posted an identical time to Takaaki Nakagami, but the still bruised LCR Honda rider misses out on the top 10 for now. Franco Morbidelli in 12th position was the last rider to post a time within half a second of the leader, with the top 19 riders covered by one second.
