2015 Indianapolis Moto2 FP2 Result: Rabat Seizes Control

Tito Rabat has taken charge of the Moto2 class, controlling FP2 from the middle of the session. The reigning world champion was fast throughout practice, and set a pace which no one could get near. Sam Lowes got closest, the British rider ending the session in 2nd, but still nearly a third of a second off the pace of Rabat. Takaaki Nakagami was a surprising 3rd, though the Japanese rider has form here, having been on the podium once in 2013. 

After leading the session early, Alex Rins found himself relegated to 4th, as other riders upped their pace. Rins ended the session just ahead of Johann Zarco, the championship leader finding some speed towards the end of the session, though he spent a lot of time in the pits with his team working on the bike. Mika Kallio ended the session in 6th, whil Jonas Folger was 7th.
