2021 Jerez Moto2 FP2 Result: Lowes Leads The Way

Despite the beautiful conditions throughout FP2, the intermediate class were in no rush to go quicker and at the end of the 40 minutes, there was a pretty even split between riders who managed to improve their times from FP1 and those waiting for FP3. Sam Lowes spent a significant amount of time at the top of the timing screens and despite a late attack from championship leader Remy Gardner, the British rider reclaimed top spot at the very end. Gardner finished second, two tenths of a second behind the leader and only one hundredth of a second ahead of Jake Dixon.

Joe Roberts in fourth also finished within three tenths of a second of Lowes, while rookie and early session leader Raul Fernandez completed the top five. Nicolò Bulega in sixth spot was the final rider within half a second of the leader, followed by compatriot Fabio Di Giannantonio and birthday boy Xavi Vierge. Marco Bezzecchi and Augusto Fernandez rounded out the top ten, while the remaining provisional top 14 positions were taken by Stefano Manzi, Jorge Navarro, Marcel Schrotter and Somkiat Chantra. Local favourites Aron Canet and Albert Arenas will be some of the men looking to change that hierarchy on Saturday morning.
