2014 Assen MotoGP FP1: Pol Leads Espargaro 1-2

Pol Espargaro has topped the opening MotoGP free practice session during a cool and cloudy morning at the Dutch TT in Assen. The Tech 3 Yamaha rider finished the session with a time of 1:34.530 which was a tenth ahead of his older brother Aleix and impressively inside the existing circuit race lap record. Jorge Lorenzo set the third fastest time ahead of a ragged Marc Marquez and Englishman Bradley Smith.

Valentino Rossi made it five Yamaha's in the top six finishing ahead of his countryman Andrea Dovizioso and race lap record holder Dani Pedrosa. Alvaro Bautista posted the ninth fastest lap ahead of fellow satellite Honda rider Stefan Bradl. The session was not interrupted by rain, but reports of heavy showers in surrounding areas means that the Assen weather (as usual) will be something to watch out for over the course of the weekend.
