MotoGP Australia 2012: Casey Stoner dominates at home. Pol Espargaró and Jonas Folger at the helm
Anonim

First day of Australian Grand Prix in the magnificent circuit of Phillip Island although as always happens on this date, the rain, cold and wind have been felt during the two free practice sessions, especially in FP1 in the morning where the Moto3 riders have had to take it a little calm. In case anyone had doubts, Casey stoner (Repsol Honda Team) has positioned himself as the fastest MotoGP rider in both sessions while Pol Espargaro He has done the same in Moto2. In Moto3 things have been closer, with a first place disputed between Sandro Cortese (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and Jonas folger (Mapfre Aspar Team). The two Germans have alternated at the top of the classification this first day.

Moto3: Jonas Folger and Sandro Cortese the strongest

Jonas folger

Since his change to the Mapfre Aspar Team, the German Jonas folger he is living a second youth and he is being one of the fastest drivers in all the sessions just as the victory in the race is disputed one after another. At Phillip Island it was no less and after finishing second in FP1, he set the best record in FP2 with a time of 1'39.213, two tenths faster than the already crowned 2013 Moto3 Champion. Sandro Cortese and together with Maverick Viñales, the only three drivers to ride below 1'40.

The Spaniard suffered a crash at the end of FP1 Without consequences but in the afternoon he has already managed to adapt to the circuit and improve his records. It is striking that in his statements he is very happy with the bike, taking into account that the Australian circuit is very fast and his FTR does not exactly stand out for its top speed.

For some drivers it is being more complicated than for others. For example the debutante Roman Fenati (Team Italia FMI) hit a ride across the finish straight, but instead of on the asphalt on the grass on the right bank. Already in the afternoon he signed a good fifth place, a second behind Jonas Folger and just behind Danny Kent that I'm sure he will also be involved in the garlic on Sunday (to see if anyone catches the pun …).

MotoGP: Casey Stoner straight for his sixth consecutive win

Dani pedrosa

It may be that a Casey stoner His injured foot is giving him problems but seeing him drive today, in a spectacular way as only he knows and with a FP2 time of 1'29.999, very close to last year's pole, no one would say. The Australian has dominated both FP1 and FP2 and in the latter he has left his teammate, Dani pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) a almost nine tenths, which is outrageous.

The Spaniard who was third in FP1 behind Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha Factory Racing) has exchanged his position with the Majorcan in FP2. Both drivers, playing for the 2013 title, have been marked closely and their difference at the end of the day was slightly higher than the tenth.

Again the two Yamaha satellites of the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 They are doing very well with Cal Crutchlow fourth and Andrea Dovizioso fifth, although almost second and a half behind the Australian. The official Ducati are in trouble and by twenty thousandths Nicky Hayden (Ducati Team) has not been outmatched by Randy de Puniet's (Power Electronics Aspar) CRT.

Moto2: Pol Espargaró dominates while Marc Márquez has electrical problems

Pol Espargaro

Pol Espargaro (Tuenti Movil HP 40) is still willing to make things difficult for Marc Márquez and has spearheaded both free practice sessions. For his part, the Team Catalunya Caixa Repsol rider was unable to ride in the morning due to an electrical failure in one of the Suter connectors, damaged in the crash he had last Sunday in Malaysia. Up to three times he went out on the track in the morning but had to return without having completed even one lap.

In the afternoon he was able to roll around 13 laps because the rain made an appearance causing most of the pilots to keep their gear until tomorrow, since there are no rain forecasts for the weekend. The swiss Thomas luthi (Interwetten-Paddock) has positioned itself in second place but almost a second behind Pol Espargaró while the local Anthony West (QMMF Racing Team) has taken his head to third place in FP2. After his second place in Malaysia, Anthony wants to shine at home in front of his fans.
