If you skipped the previous FP3 sessions, you would never guess the struggles of the premier class judging by the clear and sunny skies that welcomed the Moto2 grid. Back to slicks it was but the intermediate class still had to face jumpers & gloves conditions.
On a drying track, not only the times tumbled but also the riders themselves, with some fast crashes for the likes of Iker Lecuona, Lorenzo Baldassarri or Axel Pons. Miguel Oliveira escaped that faith to set himself at the top of the timesheets early in the session and holding station through the brief lull caused by some new drops of rain falling in the final fifteen minutes. The Portuguese rider went on to improve his own time and put a gap of six tenths into the pursuers.
