Antonelli ahead of the rest in afternoon run

Antonelli ahead of the rest in afternoon run

Wrapping up Friday’s Moto3™ Shell Advance Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix action, Niccolo Antonelli was in front of the rest in FP2, with Jakub Kornfeil and Alex Marquez also in the top three.

Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN) registered a 2’13.583 lap late in the session to take over at the top. Kornfeil (Calvo Team) was 0.016s behind in second place with Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) third and just 0.021s from P1 himself.

Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) was 0.027s down in fourth, with Efren Vazquez (SaxoPrint-RTG) fifth and 0.163s off Antonelli’s pace.

Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team), Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0), Danny Kent (Red Bull Husqvarna Ajo), Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) and John McPhee (SaxoPrint-RTG) completed the top ten.

Brad Binder crashed (Ambrogio Racing) into his teammate Jules Danilo early in the session after they misread each other’s lines. Binder missed most of the session before heading back out to test his repaired bike in the final minutes.

Luca Grünwald (Kiefer Racing) crashed coming out of turn 8, though he was ok and soon picked his bike up and moved it off the racing line.

The rain flag came out in the final seconds, perhaps affecting the riders who were on a hot lap. Soon after the session ended torrential rain began to fall.
