2020 Misano MotoGP FP2 Result: Quartararo Claims Top Spot

After FP1 was exclusively Yamaha playtime, the second practice session added some more spice to the mix, both Suzuki and KTM making an appearance at the top of the timing screens. Eventually, Yamaha had the final say with Fabio Quartararo making a late jump into top spot, a tenth of a second keeping him ahead of teammate Franco Morbidelli. Pol Espargaro was the M1’s first challenger, less than three tenths down on the lead Petronas man, and a couple tenths faster than impressive KTM colleague Iker Lecuona.

Valentino Rossi made a late jump into the top five, a tenth ahead of teammate Maverick Vinales, although the Spaniard’s FP1 team keeps him second on the combined standings. Danilo Petrucci found some speed to climb into seventh, six tenths off the lead, while Brad Binder’s eventful session went from a tumble through the gravel trap at turn six to a brief stint at the top of the timesheets and then back down to eighth. Miguel Oliveira found his feet to join the top ten late on, together with Aleix Espargaro, who put together a fairly consistent session.

The same men make up the combined top ten positions, leaving the likes of Andrea Dovizioso and his ongoing electronic niggles just outside, seven tenths down on championship rival Quartararo. It also means that the Suzukis dropped out of the top ten, despite both Alex Rins and Joan Mir taking brief turns at the top of the standings in FP2.

... challenging his teammate for top spot. I hope we a lot more of that from him now that he's bagged a podium (Brno).

Four KTM in the top ten, the three Honda's at the bottom (except for Teto). The Yamaha can run well at some tracks , it is starting to look like the KTM's run well every where , and the Honda run well no where
