2017 Phillip Island Moto2 FP2 Result: Nakagami Tops Crash-Strewn Session

Takaaki Nakagami carried his momentum from this morning into FP2, topping a strange and crash-filled second session of free practice for the Moto2 class. Nakagami pressed home his advantage, topping the timesheets by seven tenths of a second this afternoon, a similar gap to this morning.

Dominique Aegerter ended the day in second, a couple of tenths quicker than Pecco Bagnaia and Alex Marquez. Championship leader Franco Morbidelli posted the seventh quickest time, a second off the pace of Nakagami, while his main rival Tom Luthi was eleventh, 1.3 seconds off Nakagami's pace.

Luthi did well to post a respectable time, after taking a massive tumble midway through the session. The Swiss rider was one of many who went down, the crash list including both Forward riders, Tarran Mackenzie, Jorge Navarro, Simone Corsi, and more. The session had to be briefly red-flagged to clear debris from the track when Mackenzie rejoined with a damaged fairing, which dropped onto the track.
