Jerez race winner Esteve Rabat jumped in front of Simone Corsi to lead the second Moto2™ practice session at Mugello on Friday. The Tuenti HP 40 and NGM Mobile Racing riders were joined in the top three by Italtrans Racing Team’s Takaaki Nakagami.

Rabat reduced the weekend’s best time to 1’53.583 as clouds blew over to reveal sunshine. With Corsi the leading Italian rider and Nakagami dropping to third from the top spot in the morning, Johann Zarco and Xavier Simeon completed the top five for Came Iodaracing Project and Desguaces La Torre Maptaq, respectively.

Alex de Angelis was sixth on the NGM Mobile Forward Racing machine, edging championship leader Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing Team) into seventh spot. Nico Terol (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2), Pol Espargaro (Tuenti HP 40) and Tom Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) filled positions eight through ten.

Correntaio corner was the scene of the only crash of the session, which occurred for NGM Mobile Forward Racing’s Ricky Cardus who fell into the gravel trap.

The final Moto2™ practice starts at 10:55am local time (GMT +2) on Saturday.
