Márquez moves ahead in second practice
8 August 2014 – Marc Márquez moved to the top of the timesheets during second practice for the Indianapolis Grand Prix on Friday afternoon.
The reigning World Champion, who claimed after FP1 that his Honda worked better on the older track configuration, lowered the weekend benchmark by more than one and a half seconds to 1:32.882.
Pramac's Andrea Iannone was 0.222s adrift of Márquez, with the leading works Yamaha of Jorge Lorenzo three tenths further back.
Andrea Dovizioso finished fourth fastest on his factory Ducati, narrowly ahead of Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa and outgoing LCR Honda rider Stefan Bradl, who broke into the top 10 after a slow start to the weekend.
Yonny Hernández, Aleix Espargaró, FP1 pace-setter Valentino Rossi and Bradley Smith rounded out the top 10.
The second works Ducati of Cal Crutchlow, departing for LCR at the end of the season and to be replaced by Iannone, ended the opening day of practice at Indianapolis in 13th position, just over a second off the pace.
Saturday's third practice session at Indianapolis gets underway at 09:55 local time (GMT -4)
