Danilo Petrucci and Scott Redding confirm to be very fast in wet conditions. In the FP2 of the Grand Prix de France the Octo Pramac Racing riders dominate for almost the entire session then ending up in third and fourth place respectively. Unfortunately the unstable weather conditions of the FP1 did not allow them to reach the TOP 10 (Petrux 15th and Scott 16th in the combined standing). As a result they will have to fight in tomorrow’s FP3 to win direct qualification to Q2.
After the FP1 raced entirely with rain tires and finished 4 tenths of a second from the Top 10, Danilo Petrucci played a spectacular FP2. Feeling of being able to beat Dovizioso’s quickest time of the session, Petrux remained on track until the end but he had to surrender due to lack of gasoline that forced him back to the garage.
Scott Redding dominated the first 30 minutes of the FP2 by lighting up an endless series of “red helmets”. The English rider lapped fast in all sectors as confirmed by his ideal time that would secure his second position in front of Marquez. With Andrea Dovizioso, Scott Redding was the only rider to improve in the FP2 the time set in the morning.
