Michael Ruben Rinaldi Fastest on Day 1 in FP2
Michael Ruben Rinaldi (Aurba.it Racing) topped the table setting a fastest lap of 1’47.128 aboard his Ducati Panigale V4R. Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) ran second fastest ahead of Garret Gerloff (Bonovo Action BMW). Gerloff in the top 5 is a rare occurrence. We will see if he can take this pace on his BMW into the rest of the weekend. Championship leader Alvaro Bautista (Aruba.it Racing) ran an uncharacteristic seventh fastest in the session. Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK) who ran fastest in FP1 by a margin of 0.003s ahead of Rea was tenth fastest in FP2.
