In Indonesia’s First Moto2 Practice, Manuel González Breaks A Record But Is Stopped By A Red Flag

October 13, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

In Mandalika, Manuel González established a new category lap record during the opening practice for the Moto2 Indonesian Grand Prix. A red signal caused the session to be stopped for many minutes.

González (Correos Prepago Yamaha VR46 Master Camp/Kalex) had already taken the lead after the opening flying laps.

The Spaniard briefly regained the lead when Alberto Surra (Forward Team) and Pedro Acosta (Red Bull KTM Ajo/Kalex) took the same position before being passed by Arón Canet (Pons Wegow Los40/Kalex).

Acosta was eliminated from contention at turn 14 early on. The bike sustained significant damage, but the rider was unhurt.

Lap timings on the circuit were becoming faster, and after roughly 25 minutes Fermn Aldeguer (Beta Tools SpeedUp/Boscoscuro) reclaimed the lead.

The practice was cut short by a red flag when the Spaniard was in charge for around 15 minutes. The halt was brought on by circuit technical problems.

More leadership changes occurred during the restart. González, Aldeguer, and Canet exchanged positions before González broke the previous lap record in 1m34.871 seconds on his penultimate try.

Jake Dixon (Inde GasGas Aspar/Kalex) came in third, 0.360s behind Canet in second. The final two places were filled by Sam Lowes (Elf Marc VDS/Kalex) and Ai Ogura (Idemitsu Honda Team Asia/Kalex). With his solitary flying lap, Acosta came in 30th and last.
