2020 Emilia-Romagna Moto3 FP2 Result: The Masia Missile

Friday afternoon at Misano wasn’t too crowded to begin with, given that a dozen riders got a 15 min slap on the wrists in FP2 but once the action picked up, several of the usual contenders fought for prime position. In the end, Jaume Masia set a new all time lap record in the final minute of the session, three tenths of a second faster than the rest of his rivals led by Celestino Vietti. The Italian had a solid session in second position, keeping ahead of Tatsuki Suzuki and Andrea Migno by the narrowest of margins.

Raul Fernandez was the leader halfway through proceedings, but slid out at turn five immediately after and slid down to fifth on the timesheets. Filip Salac in sixth was the last rider to post a time within half a second of the leader, while Dennis Foggia, Stefano Nepa, Ayumu Sasaki and Albert Arenas completed the top ten.

Eager to make up for missing the first 15 of the session, Tony Arbolino led the way early on but had to make do with 11th in the end, followed by Gabriel Rodrigo, who failed to improve on his FP1 time after he took a tumble at the final turn late in the session. Combined with his 15 min penalty, it was a very short session for the Argentine rider, but he stays in those precious provisional top 14 positions, together with Kaito Toba and Jeremy Alcoba.

John McPhee continued to linger towards the bottom of the top 15, seven tenths off the lead, similarly to championship rival Ai Ogura down in 19th.
