2014 Brno Moto3 Friday Practice Results

The Moto3 Free Practice 2 session at the bwin Czech Republic Grand Prix concluded with Alex Marquez – the brother of MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez – at the head of the time sheet.

Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) put in a 2:07.969 lap in the final stages of the session, with teammate Alex Rins also increasing his pace at the end to finish 0.334 of a second behind in second place. Experienced Frenchman Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold) trailed P1 by 0.443 in third.

Jakub Kornfeil (Calvo Team) had a similar lap time to Masbou in fourth place whilst Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) was fifth.

Bastianini had topped the morning FP1 time sheet and was running towards the top in FP2 before a big highside which saw him taken away for medical checks on his right ankle.

Bastianini faces a fitness test on Saturday morning having later been diagnosed with a fractured right calcaneus (heel).

The top ten was completed by Francesco Bagnaia (SKY Racing Team VR46), the current Moto3 points leader Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo), Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG), Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and John McPhee (SAXOPRINT RTG).

There were also crashes early in the session for Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing) and Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3) without serious consequence.
