After the “0” of Le Mans, Niccolò Antonelli wants to get immediately a great result and being in the fight for the Championship in his home gran prix. First session of free practice saw him being the main guy with the best lap.
1.58.188 the time that put him on top ahead of Gabriel Rodrigo and French GP winner John McPhee, who are just behind. Lorenzo Dalla Porta is aiming for his first victory of the season and Mugello’s scenario could be perfect for him after being really close to the success in Qatar and Le Mans. Leopard rider ended the morning in 4th.
Championship leader Aron Canet is 5th and he is followed by Can Oncu, who is actually in top 10 after a tough start of the season with a gap of six tenths of a second. Albert Arenas is behind him and ahead of Alonso Lopez, last rider under the 1.58.
9th and 10th position for Tony Arbolino and Tatsuki Suzuki who want to redeem themselves after an unlucky race in France, while last 4 places for Q2 are actually taken by Jaume Masia, Jakub Korfneil, Riccardo Rossi and Sergio Garcia.
