Impressive times from the field.  Less than a second covering the top 16-17 places!  Hopefully Moto2 races in  2018 will be much closer than previous years.


The top 18 guys are all under Morbidelli's race lap record. 2018 is gonna be quick!

It's nothing special, it's due to the track having been resurfaced since last year's race in Jerez. Barcelona and Silverstone have also been resurfaced for the 2018 season so the lap records in those circuits will also tumble. 

Sam Lowes getting rapidly up to speed too. Watch this space.

I will watch that space... and see a crash most probably. ..

Looks like Remy may be a chip off the old block after all.

Good to see Peco carrying on the form from 2017, hopefully he'll be up there with the KTM's and the Marc VDS boys fighting for race wins.

Decent laps from Bo and from Fenati as class rookies too

Fenati also under lap record from session 1. Mir top newby overall but maybe Romano crashed on the marbles from taking those imaginative wide lines of his?
