Iker Lecuona went all out in the FP2 session to lead the way by 3.4 seconds.
Wet track? Don’t care. That’s what Iker Lecuona said earlier today as he banged in a lap time 3.4 seconds faster than anyone else on the grid. It’s almost as if he’s recently lost his ride and is trying to prove a point…
The MotoGP FP2 session started with a wet track and was tricky throughout with many riders struggling to break past 1:31 (unless your name is Iker Lecuona obviously), hilariously the speed of Lecuona’s time actually bumped eight riders out of the 107% margin, names including Miguel Oliveira, Francesco Bagnaia, Joan Mir and Valentino Rossi.
KTM’s youngun Lecuona banged in a lap time of 1:27.520 on his last of the session, completing a staggering 24 laps compared to most riders who didn’t break past 20, this means that he spent most of the session out on track clearly training for a possible wet race on Sunday, if he can stay like this then he may even contend for the victory, imagine the scenes at KTM!
Johann Zarco was the second-fastest rider 3.397 seconds back with Aleix Espargaro in third place, the Aprilia showing some solid speed even in the wet. The wet has leveled things quite a lot with Marc Marquez in fourth, the eight-time champion struggling with his shoulder pain this morning in FP1.
Marquez led Jack Miller who was the filling in a Marquez sandwich with Alex taking P6 ahead of Rins then Pol Espargaro.
