After a difficult week for the Moriwaki rider after sadly losing his brother, the Japanese star edged out the Suter rider by a mere 0.011s a closely fought FP1. Takahashi whose currently in ninth place in the rankings had a fastest lap of 1’42:402
Moto2 action resumed after a three week break following the Motegi GP being postponed and was as competitive as ever. The top 32 riders were covered by 1.851s. The rain which had been feared to pour down on Estoril, failed to materialise and the riders were faced with dry, yet humid conditions.
Luthi after finishing second at Jerez last time out, was pipped by Takahashi the final part of practice but remained ahead of Márquez. The reigining 125cc World Champion who has yet to finish a Moto 2 race this campaign after two crashes, was only 0.053s off the Gresini rider’s fastest time.
Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing) after finishing 23rd in Jerez in a disastrous race for him, led the majority of the first practice but was knocked back to the second row to finish fourth. Rookie rider Michele Pirro (Gresini Racing Moto2) continued his promising start to the series with the fifth fastest lap which was 0.304s behind Takahashi.
Mika Kallio made it two Marc VDS Racing bikes in the top six, one place ahead of Bradley Smith (Tech 3). The British rider finished fourth in Spain and lies in sixth place in the standings in his debut Moto2 season.
Completing the final three places in the top ten were second placed man in the championship Stefan Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer Racing) who was 0.519s off the leading pace. Championship leader and race winner from Jerez Andrea Iannone (Speed Master) was ninth, ahead of Alex de Angelis (JiR Moto2).
Incidents that occurred in FP1were a crash from Kev Coghlan (Team Aeroport de Castelló), who finished in 8th place in tricky conditions in Jerez. The Scotsman fell at turn 6 in the last third of the session and was unharmed after he and the bike reached the gravel trap. Wilcard rider Steven Odendaal (MS Racing), Max Neukirchner (MZ Racing) and Valentin Debise (Speed Up)also had offs in the final part of the practice.
