Said with all the respect in the world, The end of FP2 in Moto3 was a full-blown awkwardness contest from which Acosta took a slice, because despite being a 16-year-old rookie, he is smarter than many of his grill mates and was one of the few who was able to save the furniture at the last gasp, jumping from 22nd position to ninth, which guarantees his direct passage to Q2. And beware, in that accumulation of nonsense that was experienced, the least responsible are the pilots, because what most did was follow the instructions of their team leaders, who screwed up.
What happened was that the majority of the peloton stayed in the box in the final minutes of FP2, gambling everything on a lap that most could not give due to miscalculating. There were many riders who started their bikes two and a half minutes from the end. They had been on their saddles for a long time before, waiting for the order to leave. When they did, in the first and only passage through the finish line with a thrown lap that they had left, most of them encountered the checkered flag that made it impossible for them to reduce their time. The only ones who did not play the fool, by the hair, were Rodrigo, García, Fenati, Suzuki, Salac, Foggia, Rossi, Fernández, Artigas and Acosta.
They all wanted to qualify for the top 14, aware that in the FP3 tomorrow, with sunlight, it will not be possible to lower the FP2 time. The winners were, in this order, Binder, García, Rodrigo, McPhee, Suzuki, Masiá, Guevara, Alcoba, Acosta, Fenati, Nepa, Yamanaka, Toba and Antonelli. They were left out of the top 14 and, unless they were surprised, Fernández 16º, Tatay 21º and Artigas 23º would have to go through Q1, although the latter has a very uphill race to be classified in the position that is classified today, because it carries a penalty of two laps long to shoot in the race before McPhee, Migno and Alcoba.
