Free Practice 1
It should be noted that Carlos Tatay received a double Long Lap Penalty for causing the accident at the first corner at Sachsenring. The Spaniard had already apologized after the GP, assuming all responsibility for the mistake (post here). In Assen there is Matteo Bertelle, who suffered a ligament injury in his left knee following a frightening accident in the German race. Another interesting Italian driver makes his debut in his place, Luca Lunetta, with the number # 85: in his championships he uses the # 58, the number of one of his two-wheel heroes, Marco Simoncelli. Looking back at this session, we are ‘sailing’ on the Assen circuit due to the rain that came from before the FP1 MotoE, a category that opened free practice on Friday. On the report only one accident: Alberto Surra at Madijk with a highside vehicle, OK driver and, despite everything, the only Italian in the top ten. In these conditions David Muñoz stands out, finishing in the lead ahead of Deniz Öncü and John McPhee, far behind Dennis Foggia.
