All eyes were on weather apps as the intermediate class took to the track for the final session of the day. Patches of blue sky were still extensive but clouds were making a cameo already and were due to take over the show by Saturday morning. With that in mind, Moto2 riders saved some new tyres for one final time attack at the end of FP2 but could not quite leave much of an impression on the timesheets. Luca Marini started his afternoon at the front and ended it there too, with some intruders taking a turn in the spotlight in between. The Italian secured top spot in the second practice session by over two tenths of a second ahead of compatriot Lorenzo Baldassari, with Sam Lowes another eight thousandths of a second back.
Alex Marquez briefly held the lead halfway through the session but made do with fourth in the closing stages of FP2, narrowly ahead of Nicolo Bulega and Iker Lecuona. Tom Luthi did well to climb into seventh before some technical glitch saw him pull to the side at turn ten, with eight minutes left of the session.
FP1 leader Augusto Fernandez dropped to eight spot but his top time from the morning remained the fastest of the weekend until this point. Brad Binder and Tetsuta Nagashima rounded out the top ten, while the final men who can dare dream of Q2 included Xavi Vierge, Jorge Navarro, Remy Gardner and Andrea Locatelli. The likes of Jorge Martin, Fabio Di Giannantonio and Enea Bastianini will be hoping that the forecast changes its plans for Aragon overnight.
