Moto2 FT2: double guide Pons
The Pons duo continue to accelerate. Baldassarri set the fastest time at 1: 36.668 and Fernandez moved to third place. These are currently the two fastest riders on the track, because Bastianini is already missing 0.4 seconds. All others are even further away.
Moto2 FT2: Baldassarri appears

Moto2 FT2: Last exercise of the day
Let us devote ourselves to the final training of the day. & # 39; In the morning, Schrötter was able to run a fast lap time, but there was no consistency with him. Lüthi has also not announced the front, although Le Mans is a parade for the Swiss. But Baldassarri was also only ninth in FT1.
MotoGP FT2: Rossi only 14th
Apparently there is a misunderstanding in the Yamaha box. They have made a change that Rossi should check with a round. But he drove two laps and hardly had time for a fast lap at the end.
Nevertheless, the veteran rode at the end of his personal fastest lap. Rossi is behind Vinales nine tenths of a second. That means place 14.
Suzuki is also disappointing with positions 15 for Joan Mir and 16 for Alex Rins, despite less than a second behind. The flying round remains an Achilles heel of the GSX-RR.
Cal Crutchlow is twelfth after his crash and would now not be qualified for Q2.

And also Petrucci now follows his early crash and improves to fifth place.
