2019 Barcelona Moto3 FP2 Result: Dalla Porta Beats The Rain

Despite a slightly warmer and somewhat cleaner circuit in Montmeló, the lightweight class struggled to match their pace from FP1. This was partly down to rain in the final five minutes putting an end to any plans of a time attack. This left Lorenzo Dalla Porta leading the timesheets about half a tenth slower than the morning benchmark set by Alonso Lopez. The Spaniard stayed quickest on the combined ranking despite an early crash on cold tyres drastically limiting his FP2 running. Tatuki Suzuki was second best in the afternoon, followed by another third place for Gabriel Rodrigo.

Sergio Garcia in fourth saved face for the Estrella Galicia squad that dominated FP1 and was also top home rider, while Romano Fenati made good progress into the top five. Compatriot Niccolo Antonelli was the final rider within half a second of the leader, with Kaito Toba, Marcos Ramirez, Albert Arenas and Kazuki Masaki rounding out the top ten.

Jaume Masia and Aron Canet missed out once again on top ten positions but by mere hundredths of a second and the story was likely to have been different had the final time attack gone ahead. With 19 riders within a second of the leader, it is now down to FP3 to sort out direct qualifying positions.
