2022 Portimão Moto3 FP1 Result: A Wet But Solid Start For Holgado

The long awaited return to Europe was to a very wet and quite cold Algarve circuit, helping the lightweight class fill the gravel traps throughout their first outing. Despite a small moment of his own, rookie Daniel Holgado managed to avoid that faith to lead the way for most of FP1, ending the session with a six tenths advantage over Lorenzo Fellon. QatarGP winner Andrea Migno got demoted to third in the final few seconds of the session, ahead of Izan Guevara and David Salvador, who replaces the convalescent John McPhee for another weekend.

Taiyo Furusato impressed with sixth place on his first outing in Portimão, ahead of compatriot Ayumu Sasaki, who joined the crash list at turn eight late in the session. Ryusei Yamanaka, Scott Ogden and Riccardo Rossi rounded out the top 10 positions, while Jaume Masia, Carlos Tatay, Tatsuki Suzuki and Mario Aji made the top 14 early on. Championship leader Dennis Foggia was only 17th, 1.7 seconds off top spot, with rival Sergio Garcia close behind, despite a turn seven crash for the Spaniard halfway through the session. With the forecast predicting similar conditions for the afternoon session, there might be some room for improvement, unless the rain returns even more determined.
