2014 Sachsenring Moto3 Friday Practice Results

Following a DNF at Assen two weeks ago, Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Jack Miller entered round nine of the 2014 Moto3 Championship with one goal in mind – winning. And after his performance Friday during the opening Free Practice sessions, the Australian may make his goal.

The Australian, who currently leads the Moto3 Championship, was quickest Friday, setting the pace with a 1:27.302 set at FP2 in Germany.

Joining Miller – who also led the FP1 session – on the provisional front row was Ongetta-Rivacold Honda’s Alexis Masbou, who finished 0.255 of a second back, and Red Bull Husqvarna Ajo’s Danny Kent (-0.362).

The top five also featured Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) and Niccolo Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN).

Rounding out the top 10 were Jakub Kornfeil (Calvo Team), Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0), Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing), Brad Binder (Ambrogio Racing) and Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46). Binder was ninth best in FP2 but sixth overall courtesy of his FP1 time, as the South African failed to improve in the afternoon and survived a big wobble as he went off track at one stage.

Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team) was down in 21st place, feeling unwell on the first day in Germany.

A late incident saw substitute rider Gabriel Rodrigo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo) and Kornfeil go down, but both walked away unhurt. There were also crashes without major consequence in FP1 for Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) and Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0), MotoGP reports.
