2014 Jerez Moto3 FP2: Vazquez On Top As Jerez Swelters

Efren Vazquez topped the timesheets for the second Moto3 free practice session as both ambient and track temperatures soared. The baking lunch-time sun saw track temperatures rise to more than forty degrees Celsius and meant that the Spaniard's time of 1:47.725 was almost half a second slower than Isaac Vinales' morning benchmark. Romano Fenati set the second fastest time ahead of Mahindra's Miguel Oliveira and Championship leader Jack Miller, who would both be happy to have found some semblance of race pace following disappointing initial practice sessions. 

Estrella Galicia riders Alex Marquez and Alex Rins ended proceedings in fifth and sixth places and as the top Hondas. John McPhee put in an encouraging performance to post the seventh quickest lap ahead of Calvo team mates Isaac Vinales and Jakub Kornfeil. Argentinean wild card rider Gabriel Rodrigo, riding for Aleix Espargaro's CEV Moto3 team, impressively completed the top ten placing's. Fellow wild card rider Maria Herrera also put in an eye-catching performance to end the session in thirteenth place after running in the top ten throughout.
