Bagnaia and Martín start off on top at Mugello

By | May 20, 2016

Aspar Mahindra riders make positive start at Italian GP, setting the second and eleventh fastest times on Friday. Martín has his own second place cancelled out due to exceeding the track limits.

The Moto3 riders were the first out on track at Mugello on Friday, and had the thankless task of kicking off the Italian GP weekend with mixed track conditions. The first session served to draw few conclusions due to the half wet, half dry surface, but the FP2 saw the action pick up. Lap times dropped by more than ten seconds, with Japan’s Hiroki Ono the fastest with a time of 1.58.849. On a day in which six Italians entered the top ten at their home race, the best of the lot was Aspar Mahindra’s Pecco Bagnaia -second and only 271 thousandths off the top spot.
