2021 Mugello Moto2 FP2 Result: Lowes Tops After Roberts Tumbles

Sam Lowes closed Day 1 at Mugello by topping the second practice session, as well as the combined standings in the intermediate class, taking over top spot for the final five minutes of FP1. Until that moment, Raul Fernandez had led the way for much of the session, also adding an impressive save at San Donato to his rookie repertoire. After a low-key morning, Jorge Navarro climbed up to third, three tenths off the leader and another tenth ahead of home favourite Marco Bezzecchi. Tony Arbolino continues to impress in Mugello by keeping inside the top five of both sessions, ahead of compatriot Fabio Di Giannantonio.

Remy Gardner was one of the few riders whose FP2 session was a touch slower than FP1 but the championship leader stayed seventh in both the session and the combined times. Xavi Vierge, Joe Roberts and Marcel Schrotter completed a top ten covered by one second, although the American had limited track time after an early crash at turn three forced him to miss most of the session. However, his session-topping time from the morning kept him safely inside the combined top four. The rest of the provisional top 14 positions are held by Augusto Fernandez, Aron Canet, Somkiat Chantra and Hector Garzo.
