Phillip Island MotoGP

Alex de Angelis was the Moto2 pace man in the first practice for the intermediate class, setting the best lap of the hour-long session with an effort of 1’36.295 on his JiR Motobi machine at Phillip Island for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

That placed De Angelis just 18-thousandths of a second ahead of 17-year-old British talent Scott Redding, who was second fastest in the session on his Suter machine. The Marc VDS Racing Team rider, who has been in fine form of late in practice, was just under four-tenths quicker than Fonsi Nieto (G22 Holiday Gym).

Julián Simón (Mapfre Aspar) and Andrea Iannone (Fimmco Speed Up), who are still closely contesting second spot in the Championship, were separated by 0.252s in fourth and fifth respectively, with Jules Cluzel (Forward Racing), Mike di Meglio (Mapfre Aspar) and Roberto Rolfo (Italtrans STR) completing the top eight.

Sergio Gadea (Tenerife 40 Pons) experienced a difficult session, crashing twice, whilst Yonny Hernández (Blusens-STX) and Simone Corsi (JiR Moto2) also had falls, the latter of whom had a nasty highside at turn 11.
