Bradl remains in control in FP2

Bradl remains in control in FP2

Stefan Bradl continued his domination of the Moto2 class at the Cardion ab Grand Prix Ceské republiky, while Andrea Iannone and Alex de Angelis chased the German in second and third.

The start of the second practice session for the intermediate class saw Alex de Angelis (JiR Moto2), Michele Pirro (Gresini Racing Moto2) and Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing) leading the field. Bradl soon took over as forerunner aboard his Viessmann Kiefer Racing machine, challenged only by JiR Moto2 rider De Angelis until the end of the session.

The 21 year old Championship leader improved on his scorching FP1 time, which was already faster than the official record, by four tenths, setting himself as the man to beat at the Brno circuit. His lap of 2'03.166 was 0.158s ahead of that set by Italian Iannone aboard his Speed Master machine and 0.185s faster than De Angelis.

Marc Márquez progressed from the his 18th position in FP1 to fourth in FP2, though the lap times set by Aleix Espargaro (Pons HP 40) and Julián Simón (Mapfre Aspar) in FP1 were faster than Marquez’s time of 2'03.923, placing the Team CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider sixth for the day behind the other two Spaniards.

Esteve Rabat (Blusens-STX) was also unable to better his best time of 2'03.999 in FP1, which placed him seventh for the day, his FP2 time putting him in 14th. Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing), Mattia Pasini (Ioda Racing Project) and Max Neukirchner (MZ Racing) all improved on their earlier times to make it into the day’s top 10.

There were two falls in the session, those of Ricky Cardús (QMMF Racing Team) and Santiago Hernández (SAG Team).
