2018 Assen Moto2 FP2 Result: Bagnaia and Mir One Step Ahead

The final session of the day in Assen ran in excellent conditions, which meant that riders were quick to improve their times from FP1, Pecco Bagnaia once again being the fastest man on track. Joan Mir caught up to trail the Italian by only one tenth of a second, sandwiched between the two Sky riders, Luca Marini having a bit off a wild ride into third position.

Fabio Quartararo continued to impress up in fourth, less than two tenths separating him from the lead of the session and with Lorenzo Baldassarri also finding some pace another tenth behind. The Italian made a late jump into the top five and brought compatriot Mattia Pasini with him. The two Italians were closely followed by Alex Marquez, who took his time to find improvements following his morning crash. Only a thousandth of a second behind finished Marcel Schrotter in eighth, with Romano Fenati and Miguel Oliveira completing the top ten within half a second of Bagnaia.

Sam Lowes narrowly missed out on the top ten, followed by Andrea Locatelli, Danny Kent and Xavi Vierge, while Jorge Navarro had a difficult afternoon finishing in 18th position but keeping in mind that the top 20 riders were covered by one second.
