Folger fastest rookie in fourth

Another incredible session from the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider as the #QatarGP begins

Jonas Folger (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) was the fastest rookie in FP1 at Losail, taking P4 overall after a late dash to impress once again. The German was on the softer tyres, and put in a best of 1:55.587 as the second fastest Yamaha behind Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP).

MotoGP™ riders talk #QatarGP Practice

JF94, P4: "I’m very pleased to finish the first free practice in this way. Having said that, the conditions were tricky because of the strong winds and this made the bike feel so different. Now we have to rebalance the suspension, especially as we were on soft tyres, and we also have to adjust the electronics so that I can hold the line better on the track, and therefore, ride the corners in a smoother manner. Nevertheless, we did a great job and the team and I started my first Grand Prix on the YZR-M1 in a really solid way. I can’t wait to get back on the asphalt tomorrow where I will continue to do my best."
