Progress was slow on the opening day of the Italian Grand Prix for Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini after a rain-hit morning session meant that the riders only had one full dry session on track. During the time spent on the bike Alvaro Bautista struggled to get comfortable and needs to make some major steps in tomorrow's final free practice before qualifying takes place in the afternoon, whilst Bryan Staring needs track time purely to find his way around a notoriously technical track that he is discovering for the first time.

Despite a crash apiece it was a positive first day for Team GO&FUN Gresini Moto3 Niccolo Antonelli and Lorenzo Baldassarri at their home Grand Prix. Antonelli was on the pace but slipped off when tryi ng to avoid a bump whilst Baldassarri also showed positive signs despite his misfortune. Both Team GO&FUN Gresini Moto3 riders are confident that they have a good feeling around their home circuit though and they are looking forward to qualifying tomorrow.
