2014 Indianapolis MotoGP FP1 Result: New Surface Suits Rossi Fine

Valentino Rossi found something to like at the first free practice on the newly resurfaced Indianapolis Motor Speedway Friday morning. Rossi’s 1’34.535 put him three-hundredths clear of Bradley Smith who, like Rossi, saved his fastest lap for the end of the humid session. Andrea Iannone, who had topped the timesheet with one minute to go, was relegated to third in the tightly bunched field

Pol Espargaro managed fourth, slightly more than one-tenth of a second behind the leader. Marc Marquez, who held a dominant lead midway through FP1, found himself pushed into fifth at the session's end, slightly faster than Jorge Lorenzo (6th) who sits half a second shy of his teammate.

Nearly all of the riders set times significantly faster than last year. Not only was the infield track resurfaced, it also was slightly redesigned to add flow and better connect the corners. The result shaved roughly three seconds a lap on average.

Rossi led much of the early session only to be supplanted by Marquez with a little less than half the session remaining. With seven minutes to go, Rossi lagged six-tenths behind the championship leader with Lorenzo nearly a full second back.

2014 Indianapolis Moto3 FP1 Result: Miller Finds the Fast Way Around

Australian Jack Miller picked up right where he left off at the previous round with the fastest time in the first free practice at Round 10 of the Moto3 World Championship. Miller’s 1’45.824 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Friday morning left him three-tenths of a second clear of Isaac Vinales (2nd) and nearly three-quarters of a second faster than Alessandro Tonucci.

Luca Grunwald (4th) and Efren Vasquez (5th) rounded out the top five, both more than a second shy of Miller's time.

The session started slow on the damp track with times well slower than the previous year's FP1-- even with the slight track redesign which was supposed to make laps slightly quicker. But 15 minutes into the session as the racing line dried, lap times began to drop and Miller surged into the top spot. The championship points leader, fresh off the summer break, had dominated the previous round in Germany setting the top time in every session -- except race warm-up -- and winning the round.

Dani Pedrosa made it a Repsol Honda 1-2 and appeared to have discovered some decent pace heading into the qualifying session to follow.

Stefan Bradl continued his strong showing at his home Grand Prix to take third place while the factory Yamaha duo of Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo rounded out the top five.

Championship leader Marc Marquez has recovered from his topsy-turvy Friday to top MotoGP FP3 at Sachsenring. The Spaniard set a time of 1:21.581 which was half a second quicker than the benchmark set yesterday and put him almost three tenths clear of Jorge Lorenzo in second place. Local rider Stefan Bradl was hot on Lorenzo's tail and gave the home crowd reason to cheer by rounding out the top three. 

Friday's pace setter Aleix Espargaro had to settle for posting the fourth fastest time ahead of fellow Yamaha rider Bradley Smith who recovered well following a nasty crash early in the session to complete the top five. There were also high speed shunts for Broc Parkes and Pol Espargaro, thankfully all riders walked away unscathed.

Ducati riders Andrea Dovizioso, Yonny Hernandez and Cal Crutchlow will have to do things the hard way later on in Q1 after finishing in eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth places respectively.
