Moto2: Corsi fastest at Sachsenring

Simone Corsi claimed the fastest lap time during a crash-packed Friday practice session for the German Moto2 Grand Prix at Sachsenring.

The JiR rider, who has taken two podiums so far this season, finished the hour 0.218sec clear of former 125cc world champion Gabor Talmacsi (Fimmco Speedup) with Alex Baldolini a surprise third with his ICP chassis.

Julian Simon was knocked from the top with eight minutes to go, and the Aspar rider later joined the likes of Toni Elias, Yuki Takahashi, Kenny Noyes, Joan Olive, Ratthapark Wilairot and Yonny Hernandez in hitting the deck. Simon finished the session in fourth.

Title leader Elias was one place behind his fellow Spaniard after overcoming a strange fall early in the session, where he appeared to bail off his Gresini Moriwaki before remounting and getting it back to the pits.

Elias presently leads the championship by 17 points from fellow Moriwaki rider Thomas Luthi, who was only 15th fastest on Friday.

Australian Damian Cudlin, making his Moto2 debut as a stand-in for the Pons team, was an impressive 13th fastest.

Catalunya winner Yuki Takahashi fell from his Tech 3 machine with 13 minutes to go and was left down in 24th place.

Good ride from Damian Cudlin, welcome to Moto2 Mate. Ant West One second a lap slower than D.C. on the MZ with a new frame & swingarm, when Westy has done the whole season so far? It is hot, Damn hot.
