Antonelli quickest in Moto3™ FP1 ahead of Kent

 Antonelli quickest in Moto3™ FP1 ahead of Kent

Danny Kent carried on from where he had left off in Austin by leading the way during FP1 before Antonelli snatched the top-spot at the end.

Moto3™ Free Practice 1 got the on-track action underway at the Gran Premio Red Bull de la República Argentina on Friday morning. There was a slight delay to proceedings as some dirt had to be cleaned off the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit, but apart from this conditions were almost ideal with the track temperature reaching 25 degrees, although storm clouds appeared to be gathering as the session wore on.

Niccolo Antonelli on the Ongetta-Rivacold Honda waited until the very end of the session to post a 1’51.523, just 0.171s quicker than Kent, who had been at the top of the timesheets throughout most of FP1.

Isaac Viñales (+0.196s) on the Husqvarna Factory Laglisse bike was 3rd, ahead of Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Miguel Oliveira (+0.477s) and Romano Fenati on the Sky Racing Team VR46 KTM (+0.498s) with Gresini Racing Team Moto3’s Enea Bastianini (+0.539s) completing the top six.
