2022 Portimão Moto3 FP2 Result: Aji Sails Through Wind And Rain

Conditions at the start of FP2 had improved somewhat over the particularly moist morning so lightweight class riders were quickly on the pace and improving the FP1 benchmark early on, although marshals were still kept busy by a handful of crashes. As riders got ready for one last attack with ten minutes left on the clock, things got colder, windier and wetter once more, a red flag soon halting the action due to some pitlane signage and pit board bits being blown onto the track. The session was quickly resumed but conditions did not allow for any improvements on the timesheets and Mario Aji ended Friday as the quickest man in the tricky conditions. The Indonesian rider had taken over top spot from fellow rookie Diogo Moreira halfway through the session, but the young Brazilian kept second, half a tenth off the lead. Riccardo Rossi climbed into third, while Carlos Tatay and Ryusei Yamanaka joined them in the top five.

Jaume Masia was sixth, six tenths off the lead and another couple tenths ahead of rookie Scott Ogden. Tatsuki Suzuki, Ayumu Sasaki and Sergio Garcia completed the top 10 of the session – all 10 men inside the combined top 14. The rest of the provisional top 14 was completed by riders relying on their FP1 times, namely Izan Guevara, Andrea Migno, Dani Holgado and Lorenzo Fellon – the latter two also adding to the crash tally, Holgado taking a fast tumble at turn eight early on and missing the rest of the session, while Fellon added two more crashes to end the day on three. Championship leader Dennis Foggia failed to go any faster in the afternoon and ended Friday 19th overall, almost two seconds off the pace.
