MotoGP Qatar GP: Fernandez tops second practice after late yellow flag chaos
The night practice session at the Qatar weekend was closely contested, with Fernandez on his year-old Aprilia finishing ahead of Di Giannantonio on the Gresini Ducati by a margin of 0.049 seconds. Maverick Vinales initially set the fastest lap time, but it was deleted due to setting it under yellow flags after several late crashes. Several riders, including Quartararo, were caught out by the late yellow flags, resulting in a drop in their rankings. Both Bagnaia and Martin, who are title challengers, made it through to Q2 for Saturday’s qualifying. Fernandez, Di Giannantonio, and Vinales showcased strong performances during the session.
