2016 Misano Moto2 FP2 Result: Nakagami Impresses Again

Johann Zarco started the session at the top before Takaaki Nakagami built up momentum to lead another session on the Adriatic coast. The Japanese rider’s domination in the final sector kept Zarco’s attempts at bay until the end, registering a red hot last lap that put him over three tenths over the championship leader and the only rider into the 1:37s.

Much like in the morning session, Lorenzo Baldassarri left it late to challenge the top three but managed to put in a fast final lap that placed him one tenth off Zarco. Alex Rins and Thomas Luthi were next best, although Luthi failed to improve on this FP1 time.

The warm weather saw some close times throughout the field, less than two tenths separating Luthi in fourth and Alex Marquez in thirteenth position. Right ahead of the Spaniard sneaked in Sam Lowes, the British rider joining the track late after the team took some time changing gear sprockets early in the session.
