Sergio Gadea finished Friday afternoon at Mugello on top of the timesheets after a rain shower saw any chances of his time being beaten disappear. The Blusens by Paris Hilton rider returned to form last weekend with a much-needed podium at Assen, and in similar conditions, proved the man to beat again.
The experienced Spaniard had spent the dry part of the session trading times with Sandro Cortese on the Intact Racing Aprilia, with the German finishing second fastest, 0.591s behind.
Danny Webb was a surprise third on the Mahindra as the GP125 again proved more than capable in slippery conditions. The Briton was second fastest in the wet practice session at Silverstone and looked competitive again, finishing just over a second off the pace.
Adrian Martin (Bankia Aspar Team) was fourth ahead of Jakub Kornfeil who was one of only two riders, Webb being the other, to better their morning times. Danny Kent completed an excellent day with sixth in the afternoon session with last weekend's hero Luis Salom in seventh place.
Louis Rossi finished eighth ahead of the second Mahindra of Marcel Schrotter while Czech wildcard rider Miroslav Popov completed the top ten on a very impressive start to his Grand Prix career.
Maverick Vinales finished in 12th, just two places ahead of British rookie Harry Stafford, while Taylor Mackenzie was the final classified runner in FP2 in 28th position.
Championship contenders Jonas Folger and Nicolas Terol chose to wait in the garage as the conditions got in the way of any meaningful set-up work. As a result, Folger ended the session in 24th and Terol was outside the 107% cut off time in 31st.
However, due to the inclement weather in the afternoon, Terol leads the combined classification overnight ahead of Johann Zarco.
