2020 Valencia Moto2 FP1 Result: Navarro Thrives On Home Soil

The intermediate class returned to the Ricardo Tormo Circuit and brought their best form with them, quickly posting laptimes faster than anything they achieved one week ago. Nice and dry conditions greatly contributed to Jorge Navarro’s top time in the high 1:34s, while Luca Marini looked to have recovered some form as the Italian jumped into second position, only two hundredths of a second slower than the leader. Compatriot Fabio Di Giannantonio made it an extremely tight top three, only covered by eight hundredths of a second.

Sam Lowes in fourth was only a tenth off top spot, closely followed by Marcel Schrotter and a fairly impressive Hector Garzo. Aron Canet keeps getting faster after his return from injury and climbs into seventh spot in FP1, only one hundredth of a second faster than Lorenzo Baldassarri. Championship leader Enea Bastianini ended the session ninth but his gap to the leader was only two tenths of a second, while Tom Luthi rounded out a top ten covered by three tenths of a second.

Marco Bezzecchi and Joe Roberts narrowly missed out on top ten positions, while Jorge Martin in 14th was still within half a second of the lead and with the top 22 riders covered by one second.
