2019 Valencia Moto3 FP2 Result: Masia Leads Garcia

The temperatures were only slightly kinder on the lightweight class than in the morning session but the improved conditions led to quick improvements to the combined standings. The progress continued throughout the session, with a mini shootout for top 14 positions, especially with colder conditions promised for FP3. Jaume Masia ended up as the fastest man of the afternoon, half a tenth ahead of fast improving rookie Sergio Garcia. FP1 leader Marcos Ramirez stayed in the top three, a tenth and a half behind the leader, but perhaps the biggest performance of the day came from wildcard rider Xavier Artigas, who picked up the lead on several occasions throughout the session and finished fourth fastest in the lightweight class, only two tenths off Masia.

Lorenzo Dalla Porta kept close in the top five, ahead of early session leader Romano Fenati, who took a step from his more underwhelming FP1 result. The Italian trio of Andrea Migno, Niccolo Antonelli and Tony Arbolino completed the top ten but less than half a second slower than Masia. The final top 14 positions were occupied by Raul Fernandez, Aron Canet, Albert Arenas and Celestino Vietti, although the latter two men also added a few tumbles to their portfolio. That leaves the likes of Darryn Binder, Stefano Nepa or Filip Salac with some time to find in FP3 for an easier ride through qualifying.
