2017 Silverstone Moto2 FP2 Result: Marquez Gets A Minor Revenge

After leading almost the entirety of FP1 only to see his headline stolen by Dominique Aegerter, Alex Marquez looked determined to pick up where he left off, at the top of the timesheets. Mission accomplished early on and the Spaniard’s early time went unchallenged until the checkered flag came out.  In a deja-vu from this morning, Miguel Oliveira followed him closely to finish second, two tenths down on his rival.

Mattia Pasini was probably keen on the eventfulness of premier class practice and had a little moment of his own behind Takaaki Nakagami, the Italian keeping it upright to go third on the timesheets.

Aegerter left it late once again to post his fastest lap of the day but his timing wasn’t as good as this morning, the Swiss rider only jumping into fourth this time. Behind him, Nakagami scored a fifth position, the Japanese rider seeming to finally be where we expected him at the start of the season.

Tom Luthi made a small step from first practice and climbed into sixth, ahead of his future teammate and present rival, Franco Morbidelli. The Italian also chipped away at his best time while working on race pace and posting the biggest number of laps in the session.

Lorenzo Baldassarri found some consistency and finished eighth on the timesheets, eight tenths down on Marquez. Luca Marini accepted his teammate’s FP1 challenge and improved greatly on his morning performance to go tenth, Simone Corsi sneaking between the Forward Racing riders after Marini finished his afternoon with a harmless crash.

Pecco Bagnaia continued to struggle down in eighteenth position, behind Isaac Viñales and ahead of fellow rookie Jorge Navarro.
