2020 Qatar Moto3 FP2 Result: Fernandez Leads KTM Charge

After the late change of schedule, the lightweight class got all the best views while the sun was retreating at Losail. However, with one eye on the provisional top 14 ahead of qualifying day, there was little time to enjoy the views. Raul Fernandez ended Day 1 as the fastest rider after dropping his laptime to mid 2:04s, one tenth of a second faster than Darryn Binder. FP1 leader Sergio Garcia kept close to finish the day third, with Ai Ogura also at the top end of proceedings after leading the action early on. Kaito Toba in fifth was the last rider to post a 2:04 time, four tenths off the leader.

Tony Arbolino made a late jump into sixth position, with tiny gaps separating the rest of the top ten, which included class veterans Andrea Migno, Jaume Masia and Romano Fenati, as well as rookie Deniz Oncu.

The final provisional top 14 positions were secured by John McPhee, Celestino Vietti and two more top rookies in Yuki Kunii and Carlos Tatay. The fast newbies left the likes of Gabriel Rodrigo, Albert Arenas, Tatsuki Suzuki or Alonso Lopez waiting for either an FP3 miracle or a very productive Q1.
