SAN MARINO GP: MARTIN TOPS FRIDAY’S PRACTICE

The last time Moto3 riders were out for more than 15 minutes, Jorge Martin claimed pole position at Silverstone. Today, the rider of Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 set the quickest time of today’s two free practice sessions at Misano, where the 13thevent of the 2018 MotoGP World Championship has begun.

The #88 has one clear goal in mind, especially now that he has recovered some of the mobility in his recently-operataed wrist, and that is to make up ground from championship leader Bezzecchi. His 1’42.324secs lap-time was two tenths of a second faster than the one set by his main opponent for the title.

Speaking of title contenders, Fabio Di Giannantonio is a bit further down in the championship ater finishing 13th with a personal best lap-time of 1’43.472secs. The Italian rider is trying to solve some issues experienced in sectors two and three, especially under braking at “Tramonto” and “Quercia” corners.

Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 will return to the track tomorrow at 9am local time (GMT +2) for the final free practice of the weekend, before spearheading their attack on pole position from 12:35.
