Moto2 Catalunya FP2: Raul Fernandez leads Red Bull KTM 1-2
It’s another 1-2 for the incredibly impressive Red Bull KTM Ajo boys in FP2.
Raul Fernandez led the Moto2 FP2 session over his teammate Remy Gardner by the margin of 0.215, the duo have been incredibly strong this season and currently are 1-2 in the Moto2 standings with both riders showing a strong chance of taking the title, with Remy Gardner now signed up for 2022 in the Tech3 squad there’s no reason why we will not see Raul Fernandez line up next to him, he’s proven time and time again he’s more than fast enough for the move to the premier class despite only being a rookie in Moto2 with two race wins to his name already. The riders work well together helping one another and are reminiscent of the Binder/Oliveira pairing which had success in Moto3/Moto2 and now MotoGP.
Running just behind the Red Bull boys are the Marc VDS boys, funnily enough we had the same situation this morning but instead the VDS lads led the session with the Ajo boys in P3 and P4, oh how times change. Sam Lowes was the third quickest rider of the session ahead of teammate Agusto Fernandez who suffered a crash after looking over his shoulder, very strange, very strange indeed. Just behind the VDS boys was Xavi Vierge in P5.
Marco Bezzecchi finished the session in P6, he currently is sat in P3 in the Moto2 standings and will be aiming to make up some ground to the Ajo boys this weekend but it’s not going to be easy! Ai Ogura is another rookie hugely impressing, the Japanese rider has made an impression every race this year taking solid top 8 results, a top 5 isn’t far off, he finished ahead of Aron Canet and Fabio Diggia with Marcel Schrotter rounding off the top 10.
Joe Roberts was able to take a P13 finish after a crash that disrupted his session, after missing out on the podium last weekend due to a track limits infringement he will be out to seek revenge this time out.
