World championship leader Augusto Fernandez tops Friday practice for the Japanese Moto2 Grand Prix at Motegi, ahead of Somkiat Chantra and Aragon winner Pedro Acosta, with home star and title contender Ai Ogura in fourth.

After a dry Moto3 session, rain flags were waved early in the Moto2 outing, prompting a frantic early rush to post a fast time on slicks in case the moisture worsened.

Fortunately, the rain spots soon passed – but returned in the closing minutes, raising tension for the MotoGP class.

Sam Lowes made his return from injury at the British Grand Prix, last night’s fire at the Marc VDS team fortunately not preventing Lowes or team-mate Tony Arbolino riding in FP1.

To allow time for freight to arrive from last weekend’s Aragon round, Friday’s Moto2 action was limited to just a single session, which ran from 14:10-14:50.
