2021 Austria Moto2 FP2 Result: Gardner Goes Top On Drying Track

The track continued to dry after the downpour at the end of the Moto3 session, so intermediate class riders were able to start on slicks and find more and more time throughout their session. Few improved enough to go faster than in the morning session but Remy Gardner was one of them, the championship leader taking over top spot after the Fernandez duo squabbled about it early on. FP1 leader Ai Ogura stayed the fastest man overall and jumped ahead late in FP2 to separate the two Red Bull KTM Ajo boys on the timesheets, demoting Raul Fernandez to third.

Sam Lowes finished fourth, less that two tenths off the lead, with teammate Augusto Fernandez completing the top five. Lorenzo Dalla Porta continues a good run at the Red Bull Ring with sixth position, ahead of compatriot Marco Bezzecchi, who climbed to seventh despite running wide at turn four and dropping his bike in the gravel quite late in the session. Aron Canet, Marcel Schrotter and Tom Luthi completed the top 10, followed by Albert Arenas, whose session ended with a tumble at turn 9. The likes of Somkiat Chantra, Fabio Di Giannantonio and Stefano Manzi were not too high up the timesheets in the afternoon session but safely within the top 14 on combined standings.
