Rodrigo tops morning Warm Up in Moto3™

Going in search of his first win, there are a pack of Italians chasing Rodrigo down into the Moto3™ race

Argentina’s Gabriel Rodrigo (Kömmerling Gresini Moto3) has fired a warning shot on the final track action before the Moto3™ race, topping morning Warm Up at the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello for the Gran Premio D’Italia Oakley. Right in behind him, Raul Fernandez (Sama Qatar Angel Nieto Team) and Tony Arbolino.

With perfect weather over the Tuscan hills, a sun-soaked Mugello saw the Moto3™ class take to the circuit for their Warm Up session ahead of the race. Gabriel Rodrigo’s final lap saw him secure top spot ahead of the race, with Raul Fernandez also slotting in a late lap to end second. Pole-sitter Tony Arbolino (VNE Snipers) was a solid third, with teammate Romano Fenati and French GP winner John McPhee completing the top five. It was a dramatic session for Sergio Garcia (Estrella Galicia 0,0), who suffered a big highside on the exit of Turn 3 – rider OK.
