Portuguese 125cc MotoGP: Friday Results

Estoril MotoGP

Alberto Moncayo set the quickest lap in the second 125cc practice session as the weather continued to make it difficult for the riders to gain a foothold in their preparations for Sunday’s Portugal Grand Prix at Estoril.

The Andalucia Cajasol rider’s time of 2’05.490 was just over five seconds off Bradley Smith’s effort from the morning 125cc session, as he led Johann Zarco (WTR San Marino Team) by a little over a full second in the FP2 timings.

With the track still wet there were again a number of falls during the 40-minute session, with title chasers Marc Márquez (Red Bull Ajo Motorsport) and Pol Espargaró (Tuenti Racing) both going down – the former having completed just two laps and not returning to the track for the remainder.

Both escaped injury as their bikes took the impacts.

Nico Terol (Bancaja Aspar) – the third rider still in contention for the title – Esteve Rabat (Blusens-STX) and Espargaró completed a top five which was spread across a gap of 1.655s, with the morning session’s fastest Smith placing sixth but remaining the quickest of the day.

Those 125cc riders experiencing the perils of the wet also included Randy Krummenacher (Stipa-Molenaar Racing), Simone Grotzkyj (Fontana Racing), Danny Kent (Lambretta Reparto Corse), Danny Webb (Andalucia Cajasol), Efrén Vázquez (Tuenti Racing) and Zarco as the conditions remained hazardous.
