2021 Doha Moto2 FP1 Result: Di Giannantonio Leads The Way

Back under the blazing sun of Losail, intermediate class riders were hot but unbothered as they fought for the first headline of the weekend. Fabio Di Giannantonio showed his intentions from the very beginning, the Italian spending the entire session at the top of the timing screens, although only half a tenth faster than his rivals. Keen to show a little bit more than last Sunday, Marco Bezzecchi joined his compatriot at the top end of the timesheets, closely followed by Joe Roberts. Qatar 1 winner Sam Lowes kept close and consistent in fourth, only two tenths of a second off top spot.

Rookie Raul Fernandez continues his fine run in Losail, this time from fifth position, ahead of Aron Canet, the Spaniard keeping sixth spot despite a tumble at turn seven quite early on. Ai Ogura, Xavi Vierge, Nicolo Bulega and Marcel Schrotter took the remaining top ten positions, while, Jorge Navarro, Celestino Vietti, Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Bo Bendsneyder are provisionally inside the top 14, although the hierarchy is very likely to change as track conditions improve for FP2.
