2022 Argentina Moto2 FP2 Result: Aldeguer Aces Take Two

After a pretty fast first session in Argentina, the intermediate class didn’t seem to be in much rush to light up the timesheets, with improvements coming halfway through the session and not many troubling the combined top 14. Fermín Aldeguer was as impressive as always, topping both practice sessions, despite a moment at turn 10 and failing to improve on his FP1 benchmark. Augusto Fernandez followed his compatriot closely, while Jake Dixon climbed to third in the session. Having missed out on much of the morning session, Pedro Acosta picked up the pace late in FP2 and climbed into fourth, with Celestino Vietti completing the top five.

Ai Ogura also found some speed to jump into sixth, ahead of Spaniards Aron Canet and Jorge Navarro. Albert Arenas had a more challenging session than his compatriots, having to rely on his final flying lap to join the Q2 line-up from 12th overall and 9th in the session. Tony Arbolino rounded out the top 10, while Somkiat Chantra missed most of the session after a fast tumble at turn six but was safety into Q2, courtesy of his FP1 time. Joe Roberts had the opposite experience, making up for his crash in FP1 with a big improvement in FP2, which secured him the final place directly into Q2, alongside Sam Lowes and Bo Bendsneyder. This left the likes of Cameron Beaubier, Marcos Ramirez, Romano Fenati and home favourite Gabriel Rodrigo with a cameo to make in Q1.
