2016 Brno Moto2 FP2 Result: Zarco Deals Another Blow

The intermediate class got right up to speed as the light turned green in the pitlane, this morning’s leaders showing their pace was hardly a fluke, Takaaki Nakagami the early leader, with Alex Marquez in close proximity.

The duo’s domination was first challenged by Lorenzo Baldassarri, the Italian rider taking over at the front by over three tenths of a second, a result overturned after the checkered flag was waved. By who, you ask? Well, a less than fantastic morning for the championship leader was followed up by a much more encouraging afternoon, Johann Zarco making a late charge to take top spot on his last timed lap.

A late run on fresh tyres saw some more of the usual suspects back at the front, with Thomas Luthi ultimately settling for second position, with only two thousands of a second separating him from Zarco. Baldassarri dropped to third, followed by Nakagami in fourth, less than two tenths off the leader.

The Leopard revival continued with an excellent fifth place for Danny Kent, backed by his Portuguese teammate, Miguel Oliveira finishing sixth. Sam Lowes left it really late to make an impression but eventually climbed into seventh position, ahead of FP1 leader Marquez.

That leaves Alex Rins with a mountain to climb from seventeenth position, quite far off the pace, over a second slower than Zarco.
