Dani Holgado leads Friday practice at the Qatar Grand Prix with a new Moto3 lap record at Lusail, the first event for the class with Pirelli tyres.

The start of the evening session was delayed by 'technical issues', thought to be related to the trackside flag panels. 

Red flags later appeared for the same reason, interrupting the session with just under 8 minutes to go and setting up a frantic finale... which ended with a shock rain shower!

The top 14 riders receive direct access to Saturday's Qualifying 2.
