2018 Motegi Moto2 FP1 Result: Schrotter Tops Stop-Start Session

Not in unusual fashion, the intermediate class got the worst of both worlds, enjoying barely five minutes in fully dry conditions before raindrops started falling, on and off throughout the session but not significant enough to decisively stop play. This allowed for three short runs for most of the grid who did not want to risk too much but some longer bouts of bravery were repaid as well.

No sign of the rain that soaked things up earlier in the morning and the familiar clouds gave way to bright sunshine by the time the lightweight class went out to play.

The final five minutes changed the narrative and late attacks brought Jakub Kornfeil to the limelight, the Czech rider keeping the lead of the first practice session until the checkered flag came out.

Yamaha got a taste for some headlines after stealing the spotlight on Friday and Maverick Viñales seemed to forget that his bike used to suffer in hot slippery conditions and set camp at the front of the pack straight out the gates – only to be quickly demoted by teammate Valentino Rossi once the Spaniard took to the pits. The Yamaha charge was stopped by Andrea Iannone of all people once the Italian picked the pocket of his compatriot. Ultimately it was a pointless exercise once the title rivals swapped rubber and attacked the top of the charts.

2018 Buriram Moto2 FP3 Result: Quartararo Back In The Limelight

The final casual outing for the intermediate class was a more subdued affair but a couple of riders did manage to improve on Friday times and find some gains on race pace. The difference was minimal, Fabio Quartararo finding the right tow to pick up the lead halfway through the session and keep it at the checkered flag. Ironically, the man who aided Quartararo along the straights in his bid for the lead struggled to drag himself into the top 15 for much of the session.
