Krummenacher Goes Quickest In Wet Second Session

1 Mins read

Randy Krummenacher set the fastest time in second practice for the Moto2 British Grand Prix as the damp track conditions continued to have an effect on proceedings.

The track continued to slowly dry out but the times never got near those seen in the dry morning session, the Swiss youngster's time was just over five seconds slower than Scott Redding's benchmark from FP1.

As expected, the fastest times came at the very end of the session as track conditions improved and Krummenacher produced a 2:15.090 which put him a tenth of a second ahead of Marc Marquez who took the chequered flag just behind him.

Bradley Smith was third quickest but was the British rider couldn't match the pace of the top two and was over a second and a half adrift. Dominique Aegerter made gains on his last run to go fourth, as did championship leader Stefan Bradl to go fifth.

In these conditions, the spread of lap times was much greater than normal in the fiercely competitive intermediate class, with sixth place Pol Espargaro nearly four seconds off the pace.

After a crash in the morning, Michele Pirro kept himself out of trouble in the afternoon to go seventh ahead of Axel Pons and Raffaele de Rosa who found themselves in unfamiliarly high positions, finishing eighth and ninth respectively.

Yonny Hernandez has shown signs that this will be his best weekend of the season so far after going third this morning. The Colombian followed that up with the tenth fastest time in the afternoon.

Scott Redding remains top of the combined classification after his morning time remained unbeaten. The Briton was all the way down in 23rd but his dry pace will give him plenty of encouragement ahead of qualifying.

Kev Coghlan didn't set a time within the 107% cut off point and therefore ended the session unclassified, as did the likes of Simone Corsi and Andrea Iannone who chose not to risk their bikes in the slippery conditions.
