2021 Aragon Moto2 FP2 Result: Gardner Grabs Top Spot

The final practice session of the day was a little overcast compared to previous outings but the intermediate class got going and went quicker regardless. After the Marc VDS boys once again led the way early on, Remy Gardner picked up the lead for the final 10 minutes and ended the day seven thousandths of a second quicker than Augusto Fernandez. Namesake Raul Fernandez reduced his workload in the afternoon session as well but was still quick enough for third place, only a tenth behind his teammate.

Fabio Di Giannantonio progressed a few more positions since FP1 and snuck ahead of initial FP2 leader Sam Lowes. Albert Arenas and Marco Bezzecchi did well to finish within three tenths of a second of the leader, with Nicolò Bulega, Fermín Aldeguer and Marcos Ramirez rounding out a top 10 covered by six tenths. Aron Canet, Hector Garzo and Marcel Schrotter also provisionally joined the combined top 14, as did FP1 leader Jorge Navarro. The Spaniard failed to improve his top time from the morning session, partly due to a late crash at turn 14 but the benchmark he set in FP1 was enough to keep him 9th overall.
