Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto2 class at Mandalika:
Another wet drizzly morning in Indonesia made for a rather subdued final practice session for the intermediate class, with the spotlight firmly on Fermin Aldeguer. The Spaniard established a one second advantage early in the session and rivals struggled to bridge that gap throughout FP3, compatriot Augusto Fernandez coming closest ahead of FP2 leader Jake Dixon. Tony Arbolino dropped to fourth at the last minute, with Aron Canet joining the top five, followed by compatriots Jorge Navarro and Pedro Acosta.
If only a few brave souls were tempted by slick tyres in the damp morning session, the track dried up nicely and the sun came out to watch by the time FP2 came along. The provisional top 14 ended up being decided in a last-minute shootout, when Jake Dixon found over half a second over the rest of the field. Sam Lowes tried to close the gap to his compatriot on his final flying lap but a tumble at turn 10 lost him the opportunity and allowed championship leader Celestino Vietti to sneak ahead.
The intermediate class were off to a slow start while machines swept the track of quite phenomenal levels of dirt brought on by overnight rain and despite some more rain flags waving halfway through the session, dry patches started showing in the final stages of FP1. A few riders eventually got a handful of minutes on slick tyres and Sam Lowes made the best of the changing conditions to top the session by a whole second ahead of Joe Roberts, who in turn had another second in hand over Tony Arbolino.
