Locatelli leads Oliveira ahead of the Moto2™ race

Conditions remained damp with the Italian heading the Championship contender and compatriot Marini in Warm Up

Andrea Locatelli (Italtrans Racing Team) got his Sunday at the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix off to a great start after the Italian topped morning Warm Up in the Moto2™ class. He led Championship contender Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo) by 0.251 in the damp conditions after setting a 2:23.985, with Luca Marini (SKY Racing Team VR46) P3 on Sunday morning.

Augusto Fernandez (Pons HP40) took the chequered flag in P4, 0.632 back from Locatelli’s time, with Remy Gardner (Tech 3 Racing) P5 – the Australian will launch from a career-best P4 in the race. Championship leader Francesco Bagnaia (SKY Racing Team VR46) - who starts P6 for the race - ended Warm Up in P15 on a day where he can wrap up his maiden World Championship.

Federico Fuligni (Tasca Racing Scuderia Moto2) and Jorge Navarro (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) crashed – riders ok.
