Vinales completes a Friday practice double for the Aragon MotoGP, as all (remaining) Yamaha riders again fill the top 3 places.
After a chilly, delayed morning session track temperatures rose above 20 degrees this afternoon. Most riders remained on soft tyres, although the Yamahas were notably able to set competitive times on the medium rear, before also fitting new rear softs for a time attack.
With another cold session expected tomorrow in FP3, this afternoon’s top 10 could well receive direct access to Qualifying 2.
Binder, Bradl and Zarco fell this afternoon.
Valentino Rossi has been forced to miss this weekend’s event after a positive Covid test on Thursday. The Italian is also expected to miss next weekend’s second Aragon round.
HRC test rider Bradl is again replacing injured reigning world champion Marc Marquez.
