2013 Mugello Moto2 Friday Practice Results

Jerez race winner Tito Rabat jumped in front of Simone Corsi to lead the first day of Moto2 free practice at the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM in Mugello on Friday.

The Tuenti HP 40 and NGM Mobile Racing riders were joined in the top three by Italtrans Racing Team’s Takaaki Nakagami.

Rabat posted the weekend’s best time of 1:53.583, with the Spaniard stating afterwards he was still looking for an improvement in change-in-direction with the bike.

With Corsi the leading Italian rider and Nakagami dropping to third from the top spot in the morning, Johann Zarco and Xavier Simeon completed the top five for Came IodaRacing Project and Desguaces La Torre Maptaq, respectively.

Alex de Angelis was sixth on the NGM Mobile Forward Racing machine, edging Marc VDS Racing Team’s championship leader Scott Redding into seventh spot. Redding cited a lack of grip on the track as well as chatter, and will be working through numerous bike variations to counter that tomorrow. Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2’s Nico Terol, Tuenti HP 40’s Pol Espargaro and Interwetten Paddock’s Tom Luthi filled positions eight through ten.

Correntaio corner was the scene of the only crash of the afternoon session, which occurred for NGM Mobile Forward Racing’s Ricky Cardus, who fell into the gravel trap.
