2020 Andalucia Moto2 FP2 Result: Marini Back In the Limelight

With the same race track, same harsh conditions and same names showing the way at the top of the timesheets in the intermediate class, FP2 offered some more time in the limelight to the SKY Racing Team. Luca Marini established himself as the fastest man of the afternoon early in the session and went unchallenged as rivals focused on race pace. Teammate Marco Bezzecchi had his back, at least until the final eight minutes, when his pretty solid session was cut short by a crash at turn 1, which prompted fire extinguishers to make an appearance.

Tetsuta Nagashima in third was only a tenth of a second off the leader, with Jorge Martin and Sam Lowes another tenth back and rounding out the top five. Tom Luthi’s luck seemed to be turning, despite an early wobble, and the Swiss rider climbed up to sixth in the hotter conditions. Jorge Navarro was sitting comfortably in third at the checkered flag but was demoted to seventh spot after a track limits infringement on his fastest lap. Enea Bastianini, Marcel Schrotter and Nicolo Bulega completed the top ten, with one second covering the first 20 riders.

The high temperatures made it impossible for anyone to challenge the combined top 14 from FP1 and that task will have to wait until Saturday morning.
