Maverick Viñales (Yamaha YZR M 1) said the first day of practice at the Gran Premio de Andalucía de MotoGp with the best time you got in the first official session of free tests on the circuit Angel Nieto of Jerez de la Frontera roll-in-1:37.603.

With the City as a leader, the second place went to his teammate, the Italian Valentino Rossi, much better than at the end of last week and apparently both already with many of the problems of the engine of your Yamaha solved, after which some units of the same were sent directly to Japan after the first race in Jerez, at the end of last week.

Surprised in the morning to see the winner of the Grand Prix of Spain, the French Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha YZR M 1), in a low thirteenth position, easy to explain as the first leader of the MotoGP world championship focused this session on working in order to achieve a good race pace.

In its first trip to the track Quartararo was found after the consequence of your bike to the Spanish Maverick Viñales (Yamaha YZR M 1), the fastest in the morning, but the French did not want to make it work in no time, and tried by every means, without success, that is more than to work alone.

Even so, Fabio Quartararo, after a first lap cancelled for exceeding the limits of the circuit, scored his first fastest lap of the roll at 1:38.132, ahead of three spaniards, Joan Mir (Suzuki GSX-RR) Maverick Vinales and Pol Espargaró (KTM RC 16).

Precisely Pol Espargaró was the second “victim” of the session, after the fall of the French Johann Zarco (Ducati Desmosedici GP19), to go on the floors in the second curve by having to dodge another rider, paradoxically, the same French pilot, who was going much slower when he had just set the fastest lap of practice with a 1:37.889.

Just a lap later and on the same site was to the ground one of the beginners of the category, the Spanish Iker Lecuona (KTM RC 16), although in their case, as in that of Espargaró, without physical consequences review.

In the final stretch of the second session turned out to be news Johann Zarco, but this time for their sporty performance get the second best time behind Pol Espargaró 1:37.948 and on the next lap with a 1:37.850, but after his wake was the japanese Takaaki Nakagami (Honda RC 213 V) beat him to the roll at 1:37.836.

Both the british Cal Crutchlow (Honda RC 213 V), as the Spanish Alex Rins (Suzuki GSX-RR), injured since the end of last week, they took advantage of to accumulate the maximum possible miles and see what were their reactions to a physical effort and continued, without seeking for a good position in the standings, and they were not obviously in conditions, although this did not prevent them from improve the times of the morning.

In fact, only they and the French Johann Zarco down their records in the morning since the temperature increase did that go down both the performance of the engines as the tire in the circuit Angel Nieto of Jerez.
