Niki Tuuli starts the MotoE weekend in Austria as he had finished at Sachsenring: first in the 1 Free Practice. The Finn rider of the Ajo MotoE team stopped the chronometer at 1'35.866, 162.1 Km / h on average, at the fifth of the 11 total laps.
Tuuli precedes Bradley Smith and Mike di Meglio in the standings exactly as in the German GP podium at Sachsenring last July.
Note that the time recorded by Tuuli was about one second less than the best time made with the Moto3. The Red Bull Ring is definitely a perfect circuit to take advantage of the great torque and acceleration of electric bikes and the lap times prove it.
In the afternoon the FP2 expects a lot of fighting; in fact, at the end of the FP1, the first 11 pilots are enclosed in only 1 second.
Among the Italians the best was Mattia Casadei of the Ongetta SIC58 Squadra Corse team who finished 4 ° at 48 thousandths from Mike Di Meglio. To follow Matteo Ferrari 7 °, Alex De Angelis 11 °, Niccolò Canepa 13 ° and Lorenzo Savadori of the TRENTINO Gresini team MotoE 15 °.
Below the official results of the session.
