First day’s action concludes with Folger on top

First day’s action concludes with Folger on top

In a wet Moto2™ FP2 at the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, the top three riders were Jonas Folger, Julian Simon and Hafizh Syahrin.

With the rain failing less heavily by the end of the afternoon Moto2 session the majority of riders managed to improve on their morning times, with Folger (AGR Team) leading the way courtesy of a 1’52.449 best effort – three seconds quicker than he went in FP1.

Behind him in the top three, Simon (Italtrans Racing Team) and Syahrin (Petronas Raceline Malaysia) were respectively 0.189s and 0.615s off the German’s pace.

Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team) and Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) both ended the day in the top five.

Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team), Gino Rea (AGT REA Racing), Ricard Cardus (Tech 3), Randy Krummenacher (IodaRacing Project) and Xavier Simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) completed the top ten.

Thitipong Warokorn (APH PTT The Pizza SAG), Sam Lowes (Speed Up), Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP), Jordi Torres (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2) and Morbidelli took early falls. Dominique Aegerter (Technomag CarXpert), Cardus, Simon and Simeon crashed in the closing stages of the session, as did Cortese who took his second tumble late in FP2. None of the riders were hurt in the incidents.
