Marini fastest in dramatic Moto2™ Warm Up

The Championship leader set the pace once more as Fernandez’ machine catches fire

Luca Marini (SKY Racing Team VR46) began his race day in fine form by topping the Moto2™ Warm Up standings at the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya. The Italian led Sam Lowes (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) by 0.122 with Jorge Martin (Red Bull KTM Ajo) finishing P3 – 0.226 off Marini.

Drama unfolded for Augusto Fernandez (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) on Sunday morning, his machine burst into flames as the Spaniard headed into Turn 10 in the latter stages of Warm Up, a scary incident that thankfully saw Fernandez escape injury. Aron Canet (Inde Aspar Team Moto3) was fourth with Marcel Schrötter (Liqui Moly Intact GP) fifth, the German crashing unhurt at Turn 10.
