2020 Jerez Moto3 FP2 Result: Rodrigo Does The Double

With the heat soaring in Jerez ahead of the second set of practice sessions, the lightweight class stood no chance of a making a difference to the provisional Q2 lineup and settled for FP2 glory. After a solid showing in the morning, John McPhee occupied top spot for most of the session, over a second slower than earlier today but a somewhat subdued final charge from rivals dethroned the Scotsman and eventually replaced him with Gabriel Rodrigo. The FP1 leader did the double and finishes Friday as the fastest man in the class.

Tatsuki Suzuki came within three hundredths of a second of the lead, while Andrea Migno was a more comfortable two tenths back. Dennis Foggia got quicker as the session progressed and climbed into fourth but still not fast enough to secure a provisional top 14 position. Celestino Vietti had no such worries in fifth, while McPhee failed to improve on his early benchmark and dropped to sixth. Ayumu Sasaki in seventh spot was the final rider within half a second of the lead, while the Spanish trio of Raul Fernandez, Jaume Masia and Sergio Garcia rounded out the top ten.

Niccolo Antonelli had started the session at the top of the standings but a nasty crash at turn 11 meant that he finished the afternoon 15th, with only three laps on the board.
