2020 Portimao Moto2 FP1 Result: Ramirez Sets The Benchmark

The intermediate class enjoyed their first extended outing around the Algarve Circuit and while the likes of Augusto Fernandez and Remy Gardner spent the most time at the top of the timesheets, it was Marcos Ramirez who took the most advantage of the late time attack. The Spaniard finished the morning one hundredth of a second ahead of Fabio Di Giannantonio and compatriot Luca Marini, who was also within a tenth of the lead.

After leading in the final 10 minutes of the session, Gardner dropped to fourth but only a tenth slower than the leader and with Marco Bezzecchi completing the top five. Fernandez was the early leader of proceedings and finished sixth, under three tenths behind, while Nicolo Bulega, Hector Garzi, Xavi Vierge and Jorge Martin made for a familiar rest of the top ten, covered by half a second.

Despite still looking a bit uncomfortable due to the crash suffered in Valencia, Sam Lowes kept close to the top positions, only dropping to 11th in the final time attack, but the British rider was only six tenths off top spot and marginally faster than rival Enea Bastianini, who ended the session 14th.
