A much sunnier Aragon awaited the intermediate class for their second practice session and it greatly helped their pursuit of provisional top 14 positions. The final time attack still saw a handful of crashes but there were no such worries for the fastest man of the day, Fabio Di Giannantonio grabbing the lead in the closing stages by half a tenth from Marco Bezzecchi. Sam Lowes held top spot for much of the proceedings but a late crash at turn seven dropped him to third on the timesheets.
Edgar Pons sparked a surprise as he climbed into fourth ahead of Luca Marini, the championship leader proving to be back in form after an eventful outing in France. Enea Bastianini spent the first half of the session finding his feet outside of the top ten but the Italian steadily improved to finish the day sixth, four tenths off top spot and with a sensational save on his elbow at turn 2. Marcos Ramirez and Remy Gardner were split by only one thousandth of a second for seventh and eighth position, while Jorge Martin and Joe Roberts rounded out the top ten.
Jorge Navarro missed out on top position despite being only six tenths off the lead, while Marcel Scrotter was the only rider not to improve his time from FP1. Regardless, the German secured a provisional top 14 position together with Hector Garzo and Jake Dixon. The likes of Tetsuta Nagashima and Tom Luthi ended the day one second slower than Di Giannantonio and will hope for a much warmer Saturday morning in Aragon.
