Moto2: Bradl leads both practice sessions at Le Mans

Stefan Bradl fastest during Friday practice (2) for the French Moto2 Grand Prix at Le Mans.
Moto2 title leader Stefan Bradl, on pole for all three events this year and winner of two races, was fastest in both of Friday's free practice sessions at Le Mans.

The Viessmann Kiefer Kalex rider, quickest by 0.390sec over Thomas Luthi this morning, shot to the top in the closing seconds of the afternoon session - with Interwetten's Luthi then slotting into second, by 0.291sec, shortly after.

That double demotion pushed Ioda FTR rider Simone Corsi back to third, with home star Jules Cluzel (Suter) in fourth place, ahead of Jerez winner Andrea Iannone (Suter).

Reigning 125cc world champion Marc Marquez began his 50th grand prix weekend with sixth place for Repsol Suter. The young Spaniard is yet to finish a Moto2 race.

Friday practice (2) - Le Mans:

1. Bradl (Kalex) 1m 38.709s
2. Luthi (Suter) +0.291s
3. Corsi (FTR) +0.426s
4. Cluzel (Suter) +0.460s
5. Iannone (Suter) +0.487s
6. Marquez (Suter) +0.527s
7. de Angelis (MotoBI) +0.539s
8. Takahashi (Moriwaki) +0.585s
9. A. Espargaro (Pons Kalex) +0.659s
10. Simon (Suter) +0.680s

11. Redding (Suter) +0.793s
14. Smith (Tech 3) +0.957s
26. Coghlan (FTR) +1.618s

I'm thoroughly enjoying Stephan's efficiency. All the best to him and the Kalex boys all season long. On the other hand,man I'd love to see Tom Luthi or Julian Simon win a race in Moto 2. Its long overdue.

The top ten are who I would have expected, but in a slightly different order. Bradl may do well in practice and qualifying, but Iannone does his best work on Sundays... Iannone, De Angelis, and Bradl for the rostrum...
