Dixon leads the second half of the top ten. Behind them are Beaupierre, Arbolino, Siharin and Kani. World Championship leader Gardner just missed the top ten in eleventh place. It lags 0.932 seconds. Navarro moved up 22nd with a late defect.
Moto2 FT1: The Final Stage
The speed increases with each lap on the spots. Ramirez sets the best time at 2:14.865 minutes. Syharin is only 25 parts slower. Schrotter declared himself third in the first field. Raul Fernandez and Kanye completed the top five.
There is still five minutes to go.
Moto2 FT1: Big Gaps
Currently, Ramirez and Siahren are best able to use stains in the drying process. They lead the rankings by a second and a half over the rest of the field. Shantra finished third, and Roberts worked his way up to fourth.
Moto2 FT1: More and more drivers are changing
Roberts is initially in 19th, but is likely to improve significantly. More and more drivers are now being converted to a dry setup. The current cycle times will not last long. Chantra is currently ahead with 2:20.285 minutes. Ramirez and Luis are following.
Moto2 FT1: splashes while working
Roberts is the first rider to try spots. He’s been waiting in the pits so far and hasn’t made a turn yet. Schrotter is also back in the pits after a couple of rounds of sighting and may be waiting until it’s dry enough.
Moto2 FT1: Fall Already
Navarro started the session with a fall as the other riders slowly fired themselves onto the track. There is a lot of movement in the rating and conditions are getting better and better. Arbolino is currently ahead of Bezzecchi and local champion Beaubier with 2:27,218.
Moto2 FT1: No stains yet
The first dry patches form on the road, but drivers still rely on rain tires to start with. However, we should see patches soon. Nagashima returns to the Iltatrans team and replaces the injured Dala Porta.
The team has officially announced ahead of the race this weekend that it will continue with Dalla Porta and Roberts in 2022.
Moto2 FT1: Manzi is not allowed to participate
Ahead of the first Moto2 practice session, race management announced that Manzi will not be allowed to go out on the track on Friday. The reason: He entered the World Supersports Championships in Jerez last weekend without informing the FIFA hosts. He also exceeded the 7-day limit for exams.
MotoGP FT1: Yamaha lost in the wet
My training finished 12th behind Marini and in front of Petrucci. The lone fighter Aprilia Alex Espargaro took 14th place. Yamaha is far behind: Quartararo is only 15th. His brand colleagues Morbidelli, Rossi and Dovizioso are ranked 17th, 20th and 21st.
MotoGP FT1: Marquez in front of two Ducatis
Marc Marquez stayed on top with a time of 2:15,872. Miller managed to get better at the end, but was still 0.167 seconds short of his best time. Zarco is a strong third. The Frenchman recently underwent an operation on his arm.
Fourth, Oliveira is sending the KTM brand to life. With Paul Espargaro and Alex Marquez, two Honda drivers follow fifth and sixth. Reigns, Banaya, Bender and Lekouna round out the top ten. We are seeing a late fall in Nakagami.
MotoGP FT1: Marquez came out on top
Marc Marquez is the first to enter under 2:16 and thus reclaims the lead. Everyone is trying to get better again now. Miller and Oliveira are second and third. Rinsing can improve to fourth.
MotoGP FT1: Setting Adjustment
Some setup changes are made in the boxes, especially the attenuation. Because in Austin, bumps are known to be a problem. Some bikes “swallow” it better than others.
According to Simon Kravar, Marc Marquez is tackling his next ride with a new Honda chassis. For the last chord, the sun now appears over the racetrack. But it’s still too wet for stains.
