2020 Aragon Moto2 FP1 Result: Lowes Tops Cold Session As Rest Of Field Catches Up Late

Sam Lowes got off to a strong start in the first session of practice for the Moto2 class, the Marc VDS rider setting a fast lap early on and holding on until the end. It was only until the latter stages of the session that the other riders started to close the gap, Lowes’ advantage standing at nearly a second for most of FP2.

In the last few minutes, Marcel Schrotter closed the gap, slashing Lowes’ advantage down to five hundredths of a second, the German finding a new lease of life after the announcement that he will be back with the IntactGP team for 2021 as well. Fabio Di Giannantonio ended the session as third fastest, just six thousandths of a second slower than Schrotter’s best time, while championship leader Luca Marini took fourth spot with a quick lap at the very end.

The Moto2 session was delayed as a result of the late start for MotoGP, which had been delayed due to the very cold track temperatures and the cold wind. With a bit more temperature in the tires, there were fewer crashes for the Moto2 riders, Lorenzo Dalla Porta the only rider to go down in the session.
