2021 Silverstone Moto2 FP2 Result: Fernandez Fast As Ever

The final session of the day got underway under pretty dark cloud cover, but it did not impact on proceedings for the intermediate class. Despite it being only his second outing around Silverstone on a Moto2 machine, rookie Raul Fernandez claimed Friday’s fastest time in the final couple of minutes of the session. After a solid showing in the morning session, Jorge Navarro replicated that in FP2, climbing to the top of the timesheets until Fernandez demoted him by one hundredth of a second, the two Spaniards three tenths ahead of the Marc VDS duo led by Sam Lowes. Augusto Fernandez was the early leader of the session before getting dropped to fourth, with championship leader Remy Gardner completing the top five.

Fabio Di Giannantonio found some pace to climb into 6th, six tenths off the lead, while Marco Bezzecchi also improved to finish 7th but ended the session with a fast crash at tricky turn 12. Joe Roberts, Nicolò Bulega and Aron Canet rounded out the top 10 places – the Spaniard over a second slower than the leader. Xavi Vierge, Ai Ogura, Bo Bendsneyder and Tom Luthi took the remaining positions in the top 14, the Swiss rider helped by a cancelled lap time for Fermín Aldeguer, the impressive Spaniard dropping to 17th position on the combined standings.
