2019 Misano Moto2 FP2 Result: Fernandez Keeps Up The Good Work

The final outing for the Moto2 class under the blue skies of Misano brought the same names at the top of the timesheets, Tetsuta Nagashima and Alex Marquez stealing most of the airtime. The Japanese rider led most of the session, before the Spaniard picked up the lead with the fastest time of the weekend in the final 13 minutes. However, neither of them kept the laurels to the checkered flag, Augusto Fernandez swooping past to grab the lead by half a tenth. Marquez settled for a close second, with rookie Fabio Di Giannantonio another tenth back in third position.

Nagashima could not improve on his early benchmark and dropped to fourth, while Lorenzo Baldassarri did improve on his way to fifth but the Italian also had a late tumble in an end of session with a handful of harmless crashes. Compatriots Luca Marini and Enea Bastianini finished closely behind the Italian, with Remy Gardner, Sam Lowes and Nicolo Bulega rounding out the top ten, the trio within three tenths of a second of the fastest man.

Mattia Pasini, Iker Lecuona and Tom Luthi also posted fast enough times for a provisional top 14 place, with the final spot going to Marco Bezzecchi. The Italian did not set a time in FP2 due to a very early crash but his FP1 time was enough to keep him in contention on combined standings, to the detriment of Xavi Vierge. This time last year, Marcel Schrotter was putting his name at the top of the timesheets but the best he could do this time around was 16th. Jorge Navarro was another rider with a tricky afternoon, the Spaniard 18th after a low key session and a late off track excursion at turn 14.
