Moto2 Sachsenring: Pol Espargaro fastest in tricky FP2

The tricky weather conditons at Sachsenring that hit MotoGP carried on in Moto2s final practice of the day.
It rained, there was sunshine that partially dried out the track and then it rained again sending the riders into confusion on what tires to use and when to use them as not to destroy their rain tires, so many sat out several minutes waiting for more ideal conditions.

Pol Espargaro once again posted the fastest time and he did it when the track was partially dry and on slicks, that let him lap in 1’28.
258, but near the end of the session his Pons Kalex machine suffered a technical issue that left him on foot and pushing his bike back to his garage, but his lap time was more than safe as the second rider on the timesheet was 1.

935s adrift.
Technomag’s CIP riders Dominique Aegerter and Roberto Rolfo were second and third with Rolfo who was more than two seconds off pace.
Ricky Cardus took fourth with his Spanish AJR followed by Johann Zarco, Xavier Simeon, and a bruised Thomas Luthi in 7th.

After his crash this morning Marc Marquez kept it steady to finish in 8th and 2.
674 from his rival, while Toni Elias and Axel Pons closed out the top ten, in what turned out to be a washout session, that gave very few indications to the riders.
