2009 Sachsenring 250cc FP1 Result - Barbera Lays Down A Marker

While both the 125cc and MotoGP sessions were badly affected by the weather, the 250cc riders were able to put in a relatively untroubled session of free practice on Friday. Spaniard Hector Barbera finished the session at the top of the timesheets, beating Gilera's Marco Simoncelli by nearly half a second. Behind Barbera, things were incredibly close, with just over a tenth of a second separating 2nd from 6th. Championship leader Hiroshi Aoyama could only manage the 7th fastest time, but his main rival at the moment, Aspar's Alvaro Bautista, is well down the order in 11th. But the grid won't be settled until tomorrow afternoon, and by that time, the weather is likely to be completely different.
