The Italian Andrea Migno (Honda) has led the first free practice session of the Moto3 Italian Grand Prix with solvency at the Mugello circuit with a time lower by almost half a second compared to his immediate pursuer, the also Italian Roman Fenati (Husqvarna).
Migno rolled in 1: 57.724, while Fenati did it in 1: 58.219, both being clear contenders for victory on a track in which Italian drivers always want to have their share of relevance due to the status of “locals”.
The Argentine Hispanic Gabriel Rodrigo (Honda) was the first to break the two-minute barrier on the Tuscan track by running at 1: 59.624, although everything suggested that the times would drop considerably with the passage of laps and minutes, as the rain of days previous ones left the asphalt with practically no tire rubber and therefore with a much lower grip.
The leader of the World Cup, Pedro Acosta, the session was taken as an adaptation to his motorcycle and the circuit
The South African Darryn binder and italian Andrea Migno, both on Honda mechanics, were the next to break the two-minute barrier to complete the 5,245 meters of the Mugello, which already gave a clear reference that the track was beginning to improve.
The leader of the World Cup, the Spanish Pedro Acosta, who has only ridden once on the Italian circuit, in 2019, he took the session as an adaptation to his motorcycle and the circuit, and little by little he was climbing positions in the classification, in which he started behind the twentieth square.
Acosta climbed places in the table until he was sixteenth, in the final minutes he dropped again in the classification to twenty-second position, but in his last lap he achieved a faster record to climb up to fourteenth place.
The Turkish Denis Öncü (KTM) and Gabriel Rodrigo himself, took a leap in quality by already riding in 1:58, as did the Italian Romano Fenati shortly after, a true specialist on this track due to his local condition and most likely one of the contenders for victory next Sunday, but in the end Andrea Migno clearly surpassed him, with Spaniard Jaume Masiá (KTM) in third place.
