2016 Sachsenring Moto3 FP2 Result: Bastianini Pips Fenati

The Sky team was on fire in the early part of the afternoon session, Romano Fenati stepping it up once again and grabbing the top position by eight tenths of a second in front of Nicolo Bulega. The last minutes of the session poured some water on that fire, Fenati crashing and collecting Adam Norrodin, while Enea Bastianini was sneaking into the top position.

As the checkered flag dropped, so did the rain. Fenati stayed second, followed by Bulega and Gabriel Rodrigo, with Brad Binder progressing up to fifth place after struggling a little early on. While Antonelli wrapped things up early following a fast crash at turn seven, his teammate Jules Danilo impressed in sixth position.

There were slight improvements for the Estrella Galicia 0,0 duo, up to twelfth place for Jorge Navarro, despite reduced running due to the injury he’s still carrying, while Aron Canet advanced to nineteenth, although still far from the team’s usual standards.

Another rider who seems to have ran over a black cat on the Sachsenring is Jorge Martin, who followed the fast time but the also the issues of FP1 with an engine breakdown that forced him to miss the entire FP2 session.
