2009 Sachsenring 250cc FP2 Result - Abraham Surprise Leader Of Another Soaking Session

Karel Abraham was the surprise leader at the end of the second session of free practice for the 250cc class. But the Czech rider's position was largely a result of good timing, Abraham getting out and putting in a fast lap just before the rain came. The rain was so heavy that it left the timesheets largely unchanged, though Marco Simoncelli put in a good string of laps in the wet to climb up to 3rd. The wet weather practice will be very useful to the field, as the rain is expected to continue during qualifying this afternoon.
