Gilles Magnus tops interrupted first MotorLand Aragón practice

Comtoyou Racing driver Gilles Magnus was fastest in the first World Touring Car Cup practice session at MotorLand Aragón, a session that was red flagged as Tom Coronel came to a halt on the track.

Coronel stopped on track with 13 minutes left of the session with what seemed to be a technical issue.

Fellow Audi RS 3 LMS driver Magnus topped the session with a lap time of 2:06.045 and was close to three tenths ahead of team-mate Nathanaël Berthon.

Lynk & Co Cyan Racing driver Santiago Urrutia climbed to third position right at the end of the session, just below seven tenths of a second from P1.

Lynk & Co colleague Yvan Muller was fourth fastest ahead of 2018 champion Gabriele Tarquini.

Points leader Yann Ehrlacher was sixth fastest, 0.710 seconds from Magnus, while Thed Björk finished seventh.

Jean-Karl Vernay placed his Team Mulsanne-prepared Alfa Romeo Giulietta in eighth position while Néstor Girolami was fastest of the Honda drivers in ninth position.

Renault driver Aurélien Comte rounded off the top ten for Vuković Motorsport.

The second free practice session starts at 10:35 CET.
