2021 Mugello Moto2 FP1 Result: Roberts Robs Gardner

A sunny Mugello greeted the intermediate class for their first outing of the weekend and it was the same familiar names towards the top of the timesheets. After the lead changed hands a few times, Joe Roberts took over by two tenths of a second, right after his save made it into the highlights reel. Championship leader Remy Gardner got demoted to second, ahead of rival Sam Lowes and closely followed by rookie Raul Fernandez.

Fellow rookie Tony Arbolino joined the top five on home soil, five thousandths of a second faster than Augusto Fernandez and another eight hundredths ahead of Xavi Vierge. Marco Bezzecchi dropped down to eighth place after leading the way early on, ahead of Marcel Schrotter and with Fabio Di Giannantonio rounding out the top ten positions. Aron Canet in 11th spot was the final rider to post a time within a second of the leader, although Hafizh Syahrin and Marcos Ramirez were not too far off. Jorge Navarro started the day at the bottom of the top 20, a second and a half slower than the fastest time of the morning.
