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.
