2012 Sepang Moto2 FP2 Result: Wildcard Syahrin Tops Rain-Affected Session

Local Malaysian wildcard rider Hafizh Syahrin took advantage of the changeable conditions during FP2 for the Moto2 class at Sepang, going out and setting the fastest time of the session early on, while the track was at its driest. The rain started to fall much more heavily some ten minutes into the session, giving the riders a consistent track, but making it impossible for anyone to match the time of the Malaysian rider, giving Syahrin and his Petronas Raceline Malaysia team a massive boost in front of their home crowd.

In the full wet conditions, Marc Marquez had the pace of the field, the only man to post a lap in the 2'24s after the rain started to fall. Alex de Angelis came close, but suffered a nasty crash when he tried to push on, damaging his bike but walking away relatively unharmed from the crash.
