Espargaro Tops Day 1 Practice at MotoGP Argentina‏

Aleix Espargaro once again topped the timesheets in Argentina, proving that his pace in FP1 was no fluke on the Team Suzuki Ecstar GSX-RR.

Most riders had spent the first Free Practice session trying to clear the dust of the racing line, therefore grip levels had improved considerably during FP2 at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit, leading to all of the riders setting improved lap times in the afternoon.

There was a brief delay for a few spots of rain after ten minutes, but luckily it didn't affect proceedings as Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Aleix Espargaro repeated his feat of this morning, finishing on top of the timesheets with a 1’38.776.

Ducati Team’s Andrea Iannone (+0.535s) was in 2nd, ahead of Marc Marquez (+0.560s) on the Repsol Honda and CWM LCR’s Cal Crutchlow (+0.627s), who was once again impressed during practice.

The second GP15 of Andrea Dovizioso (+0.658s) finished in 5th just ahead of the Movistar Yamaha of Jorge Lorenzo (+0.687s) who completed the top six.

 FP3 is due to start at 09:55 local time in Argentina on Saturday.
