2019 Sachsenring Moto3 FP2 Result: Sasaki Strikes Back

Minimal patches of blue sky broke the cloud cover by the time the second set of practice sessions started off and with conditions not much different to the morning session, lap times did not get significantly quicker either. Sun reflected on the Petronas Sprinta fairing for the final couple of minutes, when things clicked for Ayumu Sasaki and the Japanese rider climbed at the top of the standings.

Sasaki was the only rider to go marginally faster than the morning’s benchmark but Jakub Kornfeil also continued his resurgence with second position in FP2, nearly three tenths off the leader. Kaito Toba carried on his good run of form in the top three, while Aron Canet turned things around after a slow morning to lead early on and then stick around in fourth. Alonso Lopez saw a bit more of the gravel trap than he would have liked but his best time was good enough for a top five, with Romano Fenati also coming to the forefront for the final ten minutes.

Dennis Foggia, Kazuki Masaki, FP1 leader Raul Fernandez and rookie Filip Salac completed the top ten – all four riders between five and six tenths off the leading man. The likes of Tatsuki Suzuki, Gabriel Rodrigo, Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Can Oncu formed an orderly queue at the gates of the top ten, while race winners John McPhee, Marcos Ramirez, Niccolo Antonelli or Tony Arbolino went under the radar outside of top 15 positions.
