2017 Sepang Moto2 FP2: Marquez Masters Mixed Conditions

Alex Marquez appears ready to prove that his recent win in the wet at Motegi was no fluke. On a damp Sepang track with intermittent rainfall, the Spaniard topped the timesheet and ran consistently fast times throughout the second Friday session. Lorenzo Baldasarri (2nd) finished his day just two-hundredths behind with FP1 leader Miguel Oliveira taking third.

Thomas Luthi kept his championship fight alive with a fourth-fastest time, nearly four-tenths of a second ahead of points leader and title rival Franco Morbidelli (6th). The pair bracked fifth-fastest Xavi Vierge. Luca Marini (7th) leads a pack of riders who were a full second off the pace in the wet including Sandro Cortese (8th), Marcet Schrotter (9th) and Mattia Pasini (10th).
