2017 Qatar Moto2 FP2 Result: Bagnaia Leads Second Session

old_url: 

Pecco Bagnaia has topped the timesheets in only his second ever free practice session in the Moto2 class. The Sky VR46 rider put in a late charge to dislodge Taka Nakagami from the top of the timesheets, who just inched ahead of Fabio Quartararo. With Bagnaia and Quartararo in first and third, that puts two of the Moto2 rookies in the top three.

Tom Luthi had led for the early part of the session, at a track where he is traditionally strong, but a crash at Turn 2 - the most common spot for riders to go down - left him off the track for most of the rest of the session. He ended the session in fourth, just ahead of Luca Marini and Alex Marquez.

2017 Qatar Moto3 FP2 Result: Bendsneyder Leads Bulega

old_url: 

Bo Bendsneyder has topped the timesheets in the second session of practice for the Moto3 class. The lanky Dutchman put in a fast lap towards the end of the session that would not be challenged at the end, in conditions which were significantly more difficult than FP1, the wind having picked up significantlly.

Nicolo Bulega took second place, despite getting limited track time after crashing at the start of the session. He was quickly up to speed once he got back out on track, and closed FP2 three tenths behind Bendsneyder. Sky VR46 teammate Andrea Migno finished in third, just six thousandths of a second  behind Bulega, and two tenths ahead of Bendsneyder's Red Bull KTM Ajo teammate Niccolo Antonelli. Antonelli was also a crasher, though he fell at the end of the session, rather than the beginning. Jorge Martin was fifth quickest, and the first Honda rider.

2017 Qatar MotoGP FP1 Result: Viñales Destroys The Field

Maverick Viñales has not just picked up where he left off during testing, but picked it up a notch as well. The Movistar Yamaha rider led for most of the session, only relinquishing top spot for a few minutes towards the end of the session as the other riders started chasing a fast lap. But as the final minutes ticked away, Viñales laid down a couple of punishing laps, to seize control of the session. His fastest lap wa sa 1'54.319, a hundredth of a second faster than his best lap at the test in Qatar two weeks ago.

Marc Marquez was forced to settle for second, his best lap nearly six tenths slower than Viñales, though his pace was much closer to the Yamaha rider's. Marquez finished three tenths ahead of his Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa, the Spanish veteran clearly invigorated over the off season.

Jonas Folger has been the revelation of the off season, and he has carried that speed into the first session of practice. Folger finished the session in fourth, four tenths behind Pedrosa, and a fraction of a second ahead of Jorge Lorenzo on the Ducati. Loris Baz pushed for a quick lap at the very end, jumping up to sixth place, just ahead of Cal Crutchlow on the LCR Honda. Crutchlow had a difficult start to the season, forced to pull over at the start after oil appeared on his boot, then appearing to suffer something similar towards the end.

Johann Zarco took eighth in the session, joining his Tech 3 teammate in the top ten, and ending just seven thousandths ahead of Valentino Rossi in ninth. Rossi had a tough start, struggling to find some pace and only getting into the top ten at the very end. Aleix Espargaro rounds out the top ten on the Aprilia.

2017 Qatar Moto2 FP1 Result: Luthi Edges Nakagami

old_url: 

Tom Luthi has made good on his status as Moto2 championship favorite, ending the first session of free practice for the intermediate class at Qatar. Luthi led a very close field, Taka Nakagami ending second, just eight hundredths of a second behind Luthi, and less than six hundredths ahead of Miguel Oliveira on the KTM. 

The Marc VDS riders finished the session in fourth and fifth, Franco Morbidelli ahead of Alex Marquez, while Mattia Pasini took sixth spot. Danny Kent was the first Suter home, setting the eighth fastest time, after missing most of the first session with technical problems, and riding without a front mudguard to attempt to combat engine overheating.

2017 Qatar Moto3 FP1 Result: Oettl Takes First Blood

old_url: 

Despite the threat of poor weather, the 2017 season has got underway at Qatar on a dry track and with no threat of rain, as yet. The Moto3 riders were the first to take to the track, with KTM rider Bo Bendsneyder leading for most of the session. The Dutchman was only bounced from the top of the standings at the very end, when first Joan Mir, and then Phillip Oettl took over at the top.

Oettl ended the session fastest, though still a second and a half off the circuit record time. Mir finished in second, a quarter of a second behind the German, while Gabriel Rodrigo put his KTM into third spot. Juanfran Guevara ended the session in fourth place, ahead of the returning Romano Fenati, who also had a strong first session. Bendsneyder eventually ended up with the seventh fastest time, within half a second of Oettl.

2017 Qatar Moto2 Test Final Times: Morbidelli Fastest On Sunday, Nakagami Quickest Overall

old_url: 

Franco Morbidelli and Taka Nakagami cemented their status as Moto2 front runners at the Qatar Moto2 test, Morbidelli ending the final day of testing as fastest, Nakagami leaving Qatar as fastest rider overall.

Though the Moto2 class didn't suffer as much with the wind as the Moto3 machines, the intermediate class had the worst of the weather on Sunday. Rain started falling at the end of the final Moto3 session, causing the final Moto2 session to be canceled. That left Morbidelli as fastest on the Marc VDS Kalex, ahead of Miguel Oliveira on the KTM, and Tom Luthi on the Interwetten Kalex. Nobody improved their time on the final day of the test, Saturday having had the best of the weather.

Taka Nakagami was quickest over all three days, though his advantage over Morbidelli was small. Morbidelli's teammate Alex Marquez ended as third quickest overall, ahead of Hafizh Syahrin and Miguel Oliveira.

With testing over, the teams head back to their hotels for a few days of rest before the season starts in earnest. On Thursday, at 6pm local time, the Moto3 riders take to the track for the first session of free practice, and the 2017 MotoGP season will be underway at last.

2017 Qatar Moto3 Test Final Times: Fenati Leaves As Fastest

old_url: 

Romano Fenati leaves the Moto3 test in Qatar as fastest rider overall. The Rivacold Snipers Team rider barely circulated on the final day of the test, but his time from Saturday was good enough to top the overall timesheets, and lead a Honda clean sweep going into the first race.

Fenati wasn't the only rider not to put in too many laps on Sunday. The weather, and especially the strong winds, made riding difficult for the Moto3 riders, the bikes being tossed around by strong gusts. That meant that none of the Moto3 riders improved their times on Sunday, the overall times a reflection of the times from Saturday. Fenati leads a trio of Hondas, Jorge Martin in second and Aron Canet in third, with less than six hundredths of a second separating them.

Though the times were much slower on Sunday, Juanfran Guevara ended the day as fastest overall, the RBA KTM rider nearly two tenths quicker than Japanese rider Ayumu Sasaki on the SIC Racing Team Honda. Gabriel Rodrigo was third quickest, while Bo Bendsneyder ended Sunday in fourth.

2017 Qatar Moto2 Test Sunday FP7 & FP8 Times: Morbidelli Leads Again

old_url: 

While the high winds which have battered the Losail International Circuit on Sunday have badly hampered the Moto3 class, the larger, heavier Moto2 bikes have had less trouble with the wind. After the first two sessions of the last day of the test, Franco Morbidelli is once again the fastest man in the Moto2 class. The Marc VDS rider was quickest in the second session, nearly three tenths quicker than Miguel Oliveira had been on the KTM in the first session of the day.

Tom Luthi is third quickest overall so far, ahead of Xavier Simeon on the Tasca Racing Kalex. Pecco Bagnaia set the fifth quickest time, ahead of Hafizh Syahrin, who was faster in the first session.

With rain now falling at the track, any further action looks unlikely. The teams will have to go back to their hotels and see what can be learned ahead of the opening of the 2017 MotoGP season on Thursday.

Times from the first two sessions for Moto2:

2017 Qatar Moto3 Test Sunday FP7 & FP8 Times: Rodrigo Fastest In Limited Action

old_url: 

High winds are plaguing the Losail International Circuit on the last day of the Qatar Moto2 and Moto3 test, wreaking special havoc on the Moto3 bikes, making it hard for them to set a time. The first session saw little action, especially as there were also drops of rain about. More bikes took to the track in the second session, in which Gabriel Rodrigo set the quickest time of the day so far. But Rodrigo's time is a second and a half off the times of yesterday, meaning the test has been less than productive.

Lightning has been spotted over the circuit, meaning that there is a very good chance the final session will have to be abandoned.

Times after the first two sessions for the Moto3 class:

2017 Qatar Moto2 Saturday Test Times: Nakagami Edges Morbidelli

old_url: 

Takaaki Nakagami has taken back control of the Moto2 class, topping the final session of the day for the Moto2 class to end the second day of testing as fastest. The Honda Team Asia rider held off the Marc VDS riders, both of whom had previously monopolized the top of the timesheets. Franco Morbidelli set the second fastest time of the day, just five hundredths of a second slower than Nakagami, while Alex Marquez was nearly a quarter of a second off the pace of the Japanese rider.

Hafizh Syahrin was impressive, taking fourth spot at the end of the day on the Petronas Kalex, just ahead of Miguel Oliveira on the KTM. Tom Luthi ended the day as sixth fastest, while rookie Fabio Quartararo continues his very strong run in testing to finish in seventh. Xavi Vierge put the Tech 3 bike into eighth, ahead of Danny Kent, who was the first of the Suter bikes. Axel Pons rounded out the top ten.

Testing continues on Sunday, weather permitting.
