2014 Mugello Moto3 FP2 Results: Marquez Shines Through The Gloom

Alex Marquez has headed the field in second Free Practice for the Moto2 class at Mugello, registering a time of 1:58.713. He ended the session a microscopic one thousandth of a second ahead of a much improved (compared to FP1) Romano Fenati and Championship leader Jack Miller, who posted the third quickest time and was only a further seven hundredths behind. Juanfran Guevara continued his surprisingly strong start to the weekend and finished up in fourth followed by Francesco Bagnaia, Miguel Oliveira, Niklas Ajo and Isaac Vinales.

Mahindra's Brad Binder claimed the ninth fastest time ahead of Efren Vazquez, who was predictably the fastest rider through the speed traps, but has some work to do to piece together an outright lap time. The session was brought to a premature conclusion when, with seven minutes remaining, the persistent gloomy cloud coverage produced a smattering of light rain around the circuit. The unpredictable weather thus far could prove a decisive factor in the days ahead. Added to this; the fact that the top eighteen riders were covered by less than a second means that the Moto3 class will surely be the one to watch come race day.
