Moto2: FP2: Marquez flies in the wet, Bagnaia 2nd

Moto2 was the only category to see a dry first practice but in FP2 riders found themselves having to deal with the rain. And while it was Italy to take the lead during the morning, Spain took centre stage, in the shape of Alex Marquez, in the afternoon.

The Jerez race winner proved to be the quickest in the wet with a time of 1’46”931, closing almost eight tenths ahead of Bagnaia, second. Third for Yonny Hernandez, 0.799s behind, followed by Franco Morbidelli and Luca Marini who confirm their speed even in the wet. Xavi Vierge is sixth, ahead of Simone Corsi (+1.097), Hafizh Syahrin and Miguel Oliveira, while the Kalex of Thomas Luthi rounds out the top ten, 1.2014 from super fast Marquez.

A difficult wet session for the fastest man in FP1, or rather Lorenzo Baldassari, just 18th ahead of Andrea Locatelli, while Mattia Pasini is 22nd.
