Quartararo is the only non-Ducati rider in the top eight as Aleix Espargaro does not finish in the top 10

It’s Ducati dominance so far at the CryptoDATA Motorrad von Österreich Grand Prix, with Johan Zarka (Prima Pramac Racing) leading a 1-2-3 for the Balogna marque in FP2, the Frenchman beating Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo Team) and Jorge Martin ( Prima Pramac Racing) by less than half past ten.

Ducati dominance, Aleix Espargaro outside the top 10

On a dry surface after mixed FP1 conditions, most of the field improved their FP1 times from the start as a busy second free practice session of the weekend opened, with the threat of rain and automatic Q2 places on the minds of the teams. Bagnaia climbed to the top of the grid and was overshadowed by Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™) before Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) was fastest. However, time was going to continue to fall.
