Moto2 Qatar: Baldassarri impresses in Friday practice

At the end of day one it was Lorenzo Baldassarri who rose to the top as he managed the changes to the intermediate class and track conditions with skill and maturity to top the timesheets in Moto2 in preparation for the Qatar Grand Prix.

Wrapping up their track time under the floodlights, the Flexbox HP40 rider left it until the final two minutes of the session to post his best of 1m 58.635s, as the cooler, cleaner track meant improved times for many, riding his Kalex with ease and getting to grips with the new Triumph engine effortlessly.

His time pushed Marcel Schrotter (Dynavolt IntactGP) down to second after he too made late progress.

Remy Gardner, coming to Qatar on the back of a strong showing in testing, was also in contention to finish the day on top, before landing an eventual third for SAG Team.

Sam Lowes, who was impressive in testing, especially the final Qatar test where he lead the way, could not quite match that promise for Gresini after a mechanical issue curtailed his first session (where he finished 16th), but bounced back for fourth at the end of FP2.

Alex Marquez (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) also lead for a short spell on his way to fifth overall, with Jorge Navarro the best of the Speed Up riders in sixth.

Italtrans’ Andrea Locatelli was eighth, Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Ajo) eighth, Xavi Vierge (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) ninth, with Enea Bastianini the best of the rookies to complete the top ten on the second Italtrans entry.

Moto2 will have their first taste of the new qualifying format when they return to track on Saturday, with the first 14 riders in FP3 heading to Q2.
