At the end of the first runs, Franco Morbidelli was on top of the timesheets with a 1m37.704s lap time on his SRT Yamaha.

The only incident of the session came with 15 minutes remaining in the session, as Tito Rabat crashed at Turn 13 on the Pramac Ducati.

In the final few minutes of the session, a lot of the riders took the the track on the softer tyres to try and set a strong time, with Bagnaia setting a 1m37.20s lap to go first.

Stefan Bradl, who is a wildcard for Honda this weekend, ended FP2 in 11th, 0.026s faster than Jack Miller’s Ducati.

Joan Mir will be hoping he can go faster tomorrow, the Spaniard finished in 13th, with Pol Espargaro and Luca Marini in 14th and 15th.

Marc Marquez didn’t go out at the end on faster tyres to set a quick lap, he settles for 16th ahead of Danilo Petrucci and Enea Bastianini.

Lorenzo Savadori finished in 19th, ahead of LCR Honda’s Alex Marquez and Petronas SRT’s Valentino Rossi.

Iker Lecuona and Rabat ended FP2 of the Spanish GP in 22nd and 23rd.
