2021 Silverstone Moto3 FP1 Result: Fenati Fights Back

The show returns to Silverstone after a bit of a break and it was no surprise to see one of the veterans of the lightweight class leading the way, with Romano Fenati holding onto a six tenths advantage for most of the session. The Gresini duo of Jeremy Alcoba and Gabriel Rodrigo were his closest challengers in the chilly conditions, while Ayumu Sasaki and Pedro Acosta were the final riders to post a time within a second of the leader, with the championship leader also the quickest rookie on his first trip to Silverstone.

Filip Salac and Jaume Masia kept close, while Riccardo Rossi, Dennis Foggia and Andrea Migno rounded out the top ten positions. Darryn Binder in 13th place was nearly two seconds down on the leader and a small step ahead of title contender Sergio Garcia, who enjoyed some off-tracking in FP1. Amongst the home favourites, John McPhee’s weekend got to a tough start after the Petronas rider had a big crash at turn 12 halfway through proceedings and did not rejoin but thankfully walked away unharmed.
