Petrucci heads FP2 at Misano

Octo Pramac's Danilo Petrucci laid down a marker as he set the pace in Friday's second practice for the San Marino MotoGP.

After an overcast start to the day, the sun baked down on the Misano circuit, upping the pace in Friday's second practice.

Marc Marquez picked up where he left off, sliding into P1 with a 1:33.475 while Petrucci was second ahead of Dani Pedrosa.

Edging Petrucci by 0.006s, Pedrosa made it a Honda 1-2 midway through the 45-minute practice session.

Jorge Lorenzo put an end to the Honda 1-2 when, with seven minutes to go, he went second quickest.

That spark a run of fastest times with Andrea Dovizioso and then Petrucci going P1. 

The Octo Pramac finished the day quickest of all with a 1:33.231, 0.005s ahead of Maverick Vinales while championship leader Dovizioso fell to third.

Pedrosa was fourth fastest ahead of Marquez and Cal Crutchlow, who is sporting a tendon injury to his left index finger following a knife accident.

Michele Pirro was seventh ahead of Jorge Lorenzo, Andrea Iannone and Tito Rabat.
