Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto2 class at Sepang:
Despite some damp patches still spicing things up for the intermediate class, the track was nice and ready to bring down Friday’s benchmark. Although riders were quickly closing in, long runs and yellow flags soon got in the way and it wasn’t until the final couple of minutes that Ai Ogura improved at the top of the pile, as the only rider into the 2:06s on Saturday morning. The championship leader ended practice two tenths of a second quicker than rival Augusto Fernandez’s top time from Friday and four tenths ahead of his closest challenger on Saturday, Tony Arbolino.
The session was red-flagged midway through as the monsoon rains started to fall. That left the track unrideable for an hour. The session restarted an hour later, but the track was too wet for anyone to improve their times.
