Espargaró takes first best time in practice at Red Bull Ring

KTM Factory Racing: mini track inspection key to FP1 best time?

With a lap time of 1:24.193 minutes, Pol Espargaró led the way at the start of the first MotoGP race weekend of 2020 at the Red Bull Ring – as the Spaniard posted the best time in the first practice session! Just 44 thousandths of a second behind was last year’s winner, Andrea Dovizioso (ITA/Ducati). Australia’s Jack Miller (Ducati) got to grips the best with the difficult – and in parts wet - conditions in the day’s second MotoGP practice session.
