The show has begun at the Spanish GP. After the first day of free practice, Johann Zarco finishes in ninth position whilst Tito Rabat comes in at twenty-third in the combined standings.
Johann Zarco is off to a positive start and sets the sixth fastest lap-time in FP1. During FP2 he worked with the team to improve both his confidence with the bike and his speed. He set his best lap-time, 1: 37.888, on the sixteenth lap of the afternoon session.
Tito Rabat had his first experience with the bike this morning in FP1. It was a positive first session for the Spanish rider, in which he started to get familiar with the bike.
Despite a harmless crash, Rabat improved his time by 5 tenths of a second in the afternoon (1: 39.023), compared with his previous FP1 lap-time.
