Raffaele De Rosa (Orelac Racing VerdNatura) claimed third place as the lead Kawasaki rider, more than three tenths away from Krummenacher’s pace.
Manuel Gonzalez (Yamaha ParkinGo Team) had set the fastest time in Free Practice 1 and had been at the top of the timesheets throughout FP2 before being overhauled by Krummenacher, Aegerter and De Rosa, eventually claiming fourth place. Federico Caricasulo (VFT Racing), competing for his third team in 2021, claimed fifth place ahead of his former teammate, Jules Cluzel (GMT94 Yamaha), who rounded out the top six. Caricasulo had a technical issue and a crash at the end of the first session.
