2021 Styria Moto2 FP1 Result: Bezzecchi Top Of The Class

Intermediate class riders enjoyed their return to the track after an exceptionally long holiday and the man who enjoyed it most, perhaps because of the fresh MotoGP rumours, was Marco Bezzecchi. The Italian led the way throughout the session and ended it on top, despite a late challenge from Augusto Fernandez. Aron Canet joined the top three late on, two tenths slower than the leader and narrowly ahead of Lorenzo Dalla Porta.

Sam Lowes spent the early part of the session outside of the top 10 but joined it for the final 10 minutes, ending the morning in fifth position. Rookie Ai Ogura climbed into sixth, three tenths off top spot and ahead of championship leader Remy Gardner, who was in no rush to join the top positions and spent much of the session outside of the top 15. Teammate Raul Fernandez did the opposite, the Spaniard being one of Bezzecchi’s main challengers early on, before dropping four thousandths of a second behind his teammate.

Stefano Manzi and Jorge Navarro completed the top 10, with Somkiat Chantra, Celestino Vietti, Fabio Di Giannantonio and Tom Luthi in the provisional top 14 positions.
