2021 Doha Moto3 FP1 Result: Masia Maintains Momentum

For the second race weekend of the season, Qatar stepped it up, particularly on the thermometers, with track surface seeing well above 50 degrees Celsius by the time the lightweight class kicked off proceedings. Riders soldiered on regardless and Jaume Masia led the way with a particularly strong time given the conditions. Last weekend’s victor showed off his speed once again, ending FP1 over half a second faster than the field led by Dennis Foggia. Filip Salac also made a late jump inside the top three, while John McPhee briefly led the way before dropping down to fourth position.

Andi Farid Izdihar in fifth was the final rider to post a time within a second of the leader, closely followed by teammate Yuki Kunii. Part of Xavier Artigas’ practice time will need to be spent in the long lap penalty lane but the Spaniard showed pace good enough for seventh meanwhile, ahead of Kaito Toba and Romano Fenati. After setting camp at the top of the timing screens for the first half of FP1, rookie Izan Guevara settled for rounding out the top ten for the session.
