The anticipation grows for yet another Bagnaia-Martin duel

Lots of spectacle in FP2 at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia, the site of yet another duel between Bagnaia and Martin (separated in the standings by just 13 points). At the end of the second free practice session, smiles Alex Marquez who, with a great performance, he è took home the best time, equal to 1'57"823. Behind him was the usual Martin, distanced by only 174 thousandths.

These are the top 10, in order of time, at the end of FP2: Alex Marquez, Martin, Miller, Binder, Vinales, Marini, Quartararo, Bagnaia, Bezzecchi and Zarco. In Q2, therefore, also Bagnaia who did not è managed to express his full potential (1'58"420 his time).

The first day of the Malaysian weekend certified Martin's excellent form (first in FP1) but also a Bagnaia who seems to be able to have his say. The World Champion seems less fast than his rival but with ample room for improvement. Badly Marc Marquez who does not conquer the Q2, closing with an anonymous 15° final place.
