2021 Qatar Moto3 FP2 Result: Toba In The Limelight

As night fell over Losail, things quickly got quicker for the lightweight class, who fought for those precious top 14 spots in much improved conditions. The floodlights showed Kaito Toba the way to the top of the timesheets shortly before the checkered flag waved and the CIP rider finished the evening four hundredths of a second ahead of Jaume Masia. The Ajo side of the Red Bull KTM family worked well together and towed each other up the timesheets but as the final shootout got underway, only Masia managed to stay inside the top ten, with FP1 leader Pedro Acosta dropping down to a still solid 14th position.

Gabriel Rodrigo started the session at the top and found some late speed to rejoin the top three, only six hundredths of a second off top spot and with shrinking gaps behind him. Sergio Garcia came to the fore in fourth spot, while Jason Dupasquier and Niccolo Antonelli finished a mere six thousandths of a second behind the Spaniard.

Jeremy Alcoba in seventh position posted a time within two tenths of the leader, closely followed by John McPhee and Andrea Migno and with a fairly impressive Maximilian Kofler rounding out the top ten, less than three tenths off his teammate’s top time. The remaining top 14 positions went to Carlos Tatay, Dennis Foggia, Ayumu Sasaki and rookie Acosta.
