2013 Sepang Moto3 FP2 Result: Miller Leads Honda Revival

The second Moto3 free practice session was run on a damp track for the majority after a torrential down pour during the days lunch break. Australian Jack Miller ended the mixed proceedings at the top of the time sheets after the track had dried out with ten minutes remaining. In the end his impressive lap time was only half a second slower than his morning's effort.

The top ten included five FTR Honda machines and two Mahindra's, the first of which was Efren Vazquez who finished in second position, almost seven tenths behind Miller. He was followed by Alexis Masbou, Jonas Folger and Romano Fenati who rounded out the top five.

Alex Rins sat at the top of the pile for large portions of the treacherous session while it was at it's wettest. In the end he had to settle for sixth position while Isaac Vinales finished in seventh ahead of Niccolo Antonelli, second factory Mahindra rider Miguel Oliveira and championship leader Luis Salom in tenth.
