The JiR Moto2 rider was the quickest in a wet FP2 session at Valencia on Friday afternoon as the riders lapped at around 10 seconds slower than the morning session. Championship leader Stefan Bradl was the fastest of the day overall.

Rain in the afternoon at the Ricardo Tormo circuit made for a wetter track surface as the Moto2 bikes headed out for their second session, and it was Alex de Angelis (JiR Moto2) who adapted best to the worsened conditions with the fastest lap of 1’52.026.

The morning session was run on a cold and damp track, but steady rain later in the day made for a comprehensive wet second session in which the Moto2 field lapped at around 10 seconds slower than their morning times.

Trailing De Angelis in FP2 were Italians Andrea Iannone (Speed Master) at +0.182s and Raffaele de Rosa (NGM Forward Racing) at +0.541s. The top five for the session was completed by Mattia Pasini (Ioda Racing Project) and Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing).

Championship leader Stefan Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer Racing) was seventh in the session, and his FP1 lap time from the morning remained the fastest of the opening day.
