2021 Barcelona Moto2 FP2 Result: Another Session, Another Fernandez

Cloud cover was still firmly over the circuit for the intermediate class’ second practice session and even though track conditions meant bigger improvements on the timesheets in the other classes, progress in Moto2 was limited. That didn’t stop Raul Fernandez from going fastest overall in the final quarter of the session and his time stood until the checkered flag waved. The rookie ended the day two tenths of a second quicker than teammate Remy Gardner, followed by the Marc VDS duo of Sam Lowes and Augusto Fernandez, all of whom failed to go any quicker than FP1.

Xavi Vierge joined the top 5 of the afternoon, one tenth of a second quicker than Marco Bezzecchi. The Italian was half a second off top spot but his session was complicated by the odd sight of bodywork dismantling along the straight early in FP2. Ai Ogura climbed into a solid seventh position ahead of Aron Canet and Fabio Di Giannantonio, while Marcel Schrotter rounded out the top 10, narrowly ahead of Marcos Ramirez and Jake Dixon.

Although they didn’t make much noise in FP2, Hector Garzo and Bo Bendsneyder took the remaining top 14 positions on the combined standings and left the likes of Joe Roberts and Jorge Navarro looking for more speed in FP3, after crashes hampered their session.
