Bastianini gave Lowes the double

If in the morning he already sent a warning to sailors in the afternoon, he did it again. Although he did not manage to round the job for the second time also leading the FP2 of the intermediate category. Sam Lowes was left with a bittersweet taste and with a half smile on his face, since in the last stages of training Enea Bastianini signed a spectacular eruption with which he ended up taking the leadership of the afternoon session.

It was substantially faster free training than the first contact with the track had been in the morning a. In fact, the 'Beast' came close to the best lap ever at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Bastianini also likes this track. A few seasons ago, in Moto3 he climbed to the top of the podium on a weekend of his own in which he went along the line and it was difficult for someone to really stand up to him. Although Lowes also improved his own FP1 record, Bastianini was 59 thousandths faster than the British.

After the Italian and the '22' was the other Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS pilot; Augusto Fernández . Augusto was already more than a tenth behind the best time of this FP2 signed by Bastianini, but he was very consistent and regular. After him a line of Italian pilots appeared again, who took a good part of the positions that make up the Top10. Nicolò Bulega, Luca Marini, Fabio Di Giannantonio and Marco Bezzecchi were divided from fourth to seventh place.

The Moto2 FP2 left one more good news. Hafizh Syahrin, who returns to compete this weekend after missing the last GP, that of Styria, due to injury, signed a creditable eighth place.
