2017 French MotoGP, Le Mans - Free Practice (2) Results

Free Practice (2) results from the 2017 French MotoGP at Le Mans, round 5 of 18.
After a damp FP1, Andrea Dovizioso set the pace in a wet FP2 as weather conditions deteriorated at Le Mans.

Only Dovizioso and Scott Redding were able to improve on their morning times, when the leading riders used slick tyres in the closing stages.

The Friday rain means, should conditions improve as forecast on Saturday, only FP3 will be relevant as far as a top 10 place for direct access to Qualifying 2.
