Rabat leads the way as intermediate riders warm up

The Moto2™ WUP session at the Gran Premio Red Bull de la Republica Argentina was led by Esteve Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team), from Jonas Folger (AGR Team) and Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing).

A 1’43.914 lap right at the end of the 20 minute outing gave Rabat the lead spot as he beat the Saturday lap which secured him pole. Folger trailed by 0.162s, with Zarco 0.205s off the top spot.

Rookies Maverick Viñales (Pons HP 40) and Sam Lowes (Speed Up) looked sharp in fourth and fifth, with Lowes appearing to be unshaken by his QP crash which left him 22nd on the grid.

Nico Terol (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2)  and his colleague Jordi Torres were sixth and seventh, ahead of Simone Corsi (NGM Forward Racing), Xavier Simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) and Luis Salom (Pons HP 40).
