Moto2 FT2: The Final Stage
Not much has changed in the rating for some time, also because the field has been in the pits in the meantime. However, with the start of the last 10 minutes, there is again a lot of traffic on the track and more improvements can be expected.
Celestino Vietti, for example, made it into the top ten and reached eighth place. And Raul Fernandez is on the best time track again.
