The updates Suzuki have brought to Barcelona are starting to pay dividends. After getting both riders in the top five during the morning session of free practice for MotoGP, they have repeated that achievement again in FP2, with Aleix Espargaro topping the second session by nearly three tenths of a second. The Repsol Hondas are fast, especially for just a single lap, with both Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa pushing to the top of the order at the end of the session, Marquez taking 2nd, Pedrosa grabbing 3rd.
Andrea Dovizioso was the first of the Ducatis home in 4th place, just ahead of the second Suzuki of Maverick Viñales. Andrea Iannone took 6th, just ahead of Jorge Lorenzo, who was the first Yamaha home in 7th. Cal Crutchlow put the LCR Honda into 8th spot, with Pol Espargaro the next best Yamaha, the Tech 3 rider over a second slower than his brother on the Suzuki. Scott Redding put in a quick lap to grab 10th, and the final spot in Q2, a good recovery after a big crash earlier in the session.
