Frenchman Johann Zarco topped the timesheets after the opening day at the French Grand Prix at Le Mans after a day of mixed conditions. 

MotoGP started off with a wet session in FP1 this morning. Towards the end of the session, the track started to dry which meant that quick times could be set on slick tyres.

Jack Miller topped FP1 and paved the way for the rest of the field to join him on click tyres on the drying track. The Australian was 1.4 seconds ahead of Zarco in second place and just over two seconds ahead of Joan Mir in third at the end of the morning session. 

As we got to the afternoon, the rain seemed to have held off for FP2 which meant the riders could get in a quick time before the rain that’s forecasted tomorrow.

Getting into the top 10 was crucial for the riders as FP3 is set to be drenched in rain which means times in FP2 really counted. 

It was Zarco at his home track that topped the timesheets with a 1:31.747s after the opening day with fellow countryman Fabio Quartararo right behind in second place to make it a French one-two.

Maverick Vinales finished the day in third place just behind his teammate. Pol Espargaro was top Honda in fourth place ahead of Franco Morbidelli in fifth and Miguel Oliveira got his KTM machine in sixth place. 

After his heroics on slick tyres in FP1, Jack Miller finished Friday off in seventh place with Marc Marquez in eighth place and Valentino Rossi in ninth.

Takaaki Nakagami rounded out the top 10 and all these riders would progress into Q2 if the rain is to come in tomorrow morning. 

The two Suzukis missed out of the top 10  as Alex Rins crashed during the session - he finished in 11th place and his teammate Mir, who also had a crash during the session, was 13th.

Pecco Bagnaia also missed out on a place in the top 10 and split the Suzukis in 12th.

Aleix Espargaro didn’t make it into the Q2 slots and neither did Alex Marquez.

FP3 will get underway at 09:55 local time - can anyone outside the top 10 make an improvement on their time?
