Alcoba’s teammate Gabriel Rodrigo completed the top three in the first session of the weekend, the Argentine 0.7s shy of Fenati.

Ayumu Sasaki (Red Bull KTM Tech3) and World Championship leader Pedro Acosta (Red Bull KTM Ajo) rounded out the top five, as second in the Championship Sergio Garcia (Valresa GASGAS Aspar Team) had a couple of sketchy moments in the early stages of FP1.
