2020 Styria Moto2 FP2 Result: Brownie Points For Bezzecchi

The intermediate class closed the show on a sunny Friday at the Red Bull Ring, with Marco Bezzecchi grabbing the headline of a session that mostly focused on race pace. The Italian took control of FP2 early on and had no challenger until the checkered flag, although Remy Gardner did get as close as four hundredths of a second. After a pretty anonymous performance in the morning session, Jorge Navarro climbed into the top three and was one of the few men to improve his position on the combined standings, where he joined the provisional top 14. Somkiat Chantra also went faster than in FP1 to climb into fourth but it wasn’t quite enough to secure a direct Q2 place.

Hector Garzo’s fifth position proved that his result in FP1 was not just a fluke, finishing one place ahead of championship leader Luca Marini and class veteran Tom Luthi. Jorge Martin and Marcel Schrotter also finished within half a second of the leader, while Tetsuta Nagashima made his appearance into the top ten, although he is yet to secure a place in Q2.

Sam Lowes' FP1 time remained the fastest of the weekend, although the British rider was only 12th in the second practice session, sandwiched between teammate Augusto Fernandez and rookie Aron Canet, who paid a visit to the gravel trap at turn one. The trio was safely inside the combined top 14, as were Marcos Ramirez and Enea Bastianini, who completed the top 15 of the session.
