Folger tops morning run despite crash

Jonas Folger (AGR Team) was the fastest Moto2™ rider on track in Warm Up at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas despite a crash late in the session, whilst Mika Kallio Marc (VDS Racing Team) and Julian Simon (Italtrans Racing Team) registered top three times.

Folger’s late crash will hopefully not dent his confidence ahead of his second Moto2 race later today, which he will start from the third row.

Also in the Warm Up top five were Takaaki Nakagami (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia) and Xavier Simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2).

The top ten was rounded out by Simone Corsi (NGM Forward Racing), pole man Esteve Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team), Maverick Viñales (Pons HP 40), Alex De Angelis (Tasca Racing Moto2) and Jordi Torres (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2).

Sam Lowes (Speed Up) avoided injury in a lowside crash though Luis Salom (Pons HP 40) was lucky not to be taken out by the Englishman as he slid across the track.
