Oliveira outpaces Corsi and Vierge in rain-soaked FP1

Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo) topped FP1 at the Czech GP, four tenths clear of veteran Italian Simone Corsi (Speed Up Racing). Xavi Vierge (Tech 3 Racing) completed the top three in an impressive performance as he returns from injury.

Championship leader Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) was one crasher - rider ok - as the Italian pushed a bit too far stacking up the red sectors. Teammate Alex Marquez was impressive back on track after injuring himself in Germany, and American debutant Joe Roberts - stepping into the AGR Team for the remainder of 2017 - had a stunning first session in P14.
