On the other side of the Red Bull KTM Tech3 garage, Moto2 class rookie Philipp Öttl went 0.382 seconds faster in the evening to eventually finish just 0.372 seconds behind his teammate in the overall standings. The track action continues tomorrow at 14.45 local time (12.45 CET) with the third Free Practice session ahead of the first ever two-qualifying-format for the Moto2 category at 18.25 local time (16.25 CET).

“Today has been better than during the test. We already started with a better setting and tried to work a lot more on the riding style. We tried different tyres, which was also interesting. Now I still need to make another step with my riding, but I already improved a lot. Therefore, I’m happy. The team was working really good, I’m satisfied and tomorrow we will try to go faster.”

“To be honest, I was hoping that we are able to make a big step forward, but somehow the things I imagined like breaking later, didn’t work out. In FP2 we were a bit faster than in FP1, but overall, we wanted more. Now we need to analyze what was the reason for this and work on a good plan for tomorrow.”
