Countryman Francesco Bagnaia takes the top spot in FP2 of his home race.
At last, a Ducati on top, we expected Ducati to be hot out the gate this weekend but instead it seems they’d rather let their competitors attack them from all angles with Francesco Bagnaia being left to fend for himself as the other Ducati’s sit down in P9, P10, and even further down than that. Thankfully for the Bologna brand who are looking to make it 4 consecutive wins at Mugello this weekend they at least have Francesco Bagnaia on their roster who leads the FP2 session just 0.071 ahead of Alex Rins in second place with the Suzuki man looking fairly strong this weekend after some tough races spent in the gravel.
Joining the duo in the top thee was Franco Morbidelli who reigned as the fastest Yamaha ahead of ex-teammate Fabio Quartararo in fourth place, the duo once again backing up the talk that they are Yamaha’s strongest riders with Quartararo currently leading the championship.
Now in a bizarre turn of events we see two KTM’s in the top 6, something we have barely seen all year long with the Austrian factory massively struggling to be competitive all year long, Brad Binder lead Miguel Oliveira with the duo praying for a strong result this weekend, they finished just ahead of the fastest Honda of Takaaki Nakagami and the fastest Aprilia of Aleix Espargaro in P8.
As previously mentioned we have two Ducati’s in P9 and P10 namely Jack Miller then Johann Zarco.
