Wheelies 2017 – Moto3 Top 10 – Part 2

Yesterday we presented you the first part of the Moto3 Top 10 in the vision of our team. Now it is time to bring on the second part, where we will reveal the 1-5 positions.

5. Marcos Ramirez (#42)

Spanish rider Marcos Ramirez was definitely one of the most impressive riders throughout the 2017 Moto3 season as he managed to get involved in the podium fights more than often with a team that had been struggling outside the top 15 in the previous seasons.

Having collected 10 points in the first three races, Ramirez did a great qualifying session on home turf in Jerez, establishing the 5th fastest time. The 19-years old Spaniard mantained the same high pace on race day and stayed in the front group throughout the whole race, also grabbing the lead at some point. He crossed the line in 4th, missing out on the podium for only 0.203, but establishing a new career best. Ramirez kept up the good job two weeks later in France, where he once again finished 4th, this time only 0.104 off the podium.

After another spectacular three GPs for Ramirez in Italy (9th), Catalunya (6th) and Assen (6th), the much awaited day of the maiden podium came in Germany. The Platinum Bay Real Estate rider managed to stay close to title rivals Joan Mir and Romano Fenati and the trio pulled away from the other competitors. Ramirez settled quietly in 3rd, leaving Mir and Fenati to fight it out for the win, securing his first ever podium finish. Perfect way to end the first half of the season.

The second part was much tougher for Ramirez, as his best result since Brno before the season finale was a 7th place finish in Aragon. Two wet races in Misano and Motegi and a crash in Australia affected his good run of results. However, Ramirez knew how to strike back on home turf in Valencia and scored his second podium finish, holding off Romano Fenati to cross the line in 3rd. He finished the season 8th overall, with 123 points.

 

4. Aron Canet (#44)

Having caught some attention in his debut season, when he gathered one podium finish, one pole position and some top 10 finishes, Aron Canet evolved in 2017 to the state of championship contender.

The qualifying session of the Americas GP was Canet`s first outburst, as the young Spaniard took pole position for more than one second ahead of the 2nd place on the grid. He kept up the good rhytm on race day, establishing the fastest lap, but ended with a “heartbreak” as he crashed out while battling Romano Fenati for the win.

Canet did not let this result affect his morale and came back even stronger on home turf. He won the race in Jerez after some extraordinary last lap maneuvers against Romano Fenati and Joan Mir. The Spaniard carried on the podium form in Le Mans, where he finished 2nd, behind Mir. Two strong performances followed in Mugello and Catalunya, where Canet crossed the finish line in 5th place on both occasions. Another magnificent last lap strategy brought Canet his second win of the season in Assen, where he defeated Romano Fenati for only 0.035.

Canet could have entered the summer break as Mir`s main rival, but another crash in Germany, similar to the one in Austin (as he again started from pole) gave Fenati the opportunity to take the 2nd place in the championship from him. In the second half of the championship, Canet continued battling at the front. He kicked it off with a 3rd place finish in Brno, followed by a 5th place in Austria and a third stunning win in Silverstone. He did not climb the podium ever since that race, but two additional 5th place finishes in Misano and Aragon and a 9th place in Valencia secured him the bronze medal at the end of the year.

Next year, Canet will remain alongside Estrella Galicia 0,0 in the lightweight class and, with Mir and Fenati promoted to Moto2, we can expect the Spaniard to be a serious title contender.

 

3. Jorge Martin (#88)

Another impressive Spaniard in 2017 was Del Conca Gresini`s Jorge Martin. The Madrid-born 19-years old rider kicked-off the season with a pole position in Qatar converted in a 3rd place finish in the race. Same race result was repeated in Argentina. The Austin round held at the Circuit of the Americas brought a new season best for Martin, who crossed the line in 2nd after an intense duel with his teammate, Fabio Digiannantonio. This result lifted him to the 2nd place in the championship, only 6 points behind leader Joan Mir.

A sensational run of 5 straight pole positions followed for Martin, but, unfortunately, he was not able to take advantage of them. Inappropriate strategies in the dying moments of the races threw him to 9th in Jerez and 15th in Mugello. Between this 2 GPs, he crashed out of the French GP at Le Mans, gathering no points. Two strong performances followed in Catalunya and Assen, where Martin finished 3rd and 4th, respectively.

Disaster struck for Jorge Martin in the Free Practice session of the German GP, as he suffered a heavy highside which caused him a broken ankle and tibia. He tried to come back after the summer break in Brno, but, after Friday, he announced his retirement from the reminder of the GP as his pain was too intense.

One week later in Austria Martin returned and offered us a moment we will never forget. In spite of using crutches to walk, on the bike he was simply magnificent and won the battle for the 3rd place. A 3rd place that for sure felt like a victory, as Martin could be seen crying in the parc ferme and at the podium ceremony.

The Spaniard impressed again two weeks later at Silverstone, where he fought for the win throughout the whole race. He was the leader when the red flag appeared and, unfortunately for him, he was only 3rd at the end of the last completed lap. So, once again, his effort was not enough for a maiden career win. Martin came back to the pole position ways in Aragon and Australia, converting them into a 4th and another 3rd place, respectively.

Martin once again equaled his career best in Malaysia, where he was the best of the rest behind a dominant Joan Mir. The season finale at Valencia started good for Martin as he clinched on Saturday his 9th pole of the season, an absolute record in the Moto3 class. This time, there was nothing that could stop Martin on race day. No rain, no red flag, no Joan Mir. He led from start to finish, securing his 9th podium finish of the season and the first ever win. He finished the season 4th overall, only 3 points behind Aron Canet.

Next year Martin will stay alongside Gresini Racing in the lightweight class and we can expect him to be Canet`s main rival in the title fight.

 

2. Romano Fenati (#5)

After 5 years in the category during which factors like his inconsistency and impulsivity did not allow him to be a serious contender for the World Championship, Romano Fenati finally found an antidote for these problems in 2017 alongside Marinelli Rivacold Snipers team.

Having last won a GP at COTA in 2016, Fenati struck again at the venue and won for more than 4 seconds ahead of Jorge Martin. He carried on the good form in Jerez, where he crossed the line in 2nd.

Fenati`s first and only DNF of the season came in Le Mans, where he crashed out of the race while in the lead, throwing away 25 vital points in the championship.

After a disappointing home race in Mugello, where he finished only 13th, Fenati knew how to come back in style and scored 4 consecutive podium finishes in Catalunya, Assen, Sachsenring and Brno. On each occasion, he crossed the line in 2nd place.

From that point, Fenati managed to show his class only in wet conditions. He dominated on a soaked Misano Circuit, taking the win for more than 28 seconds ahead of Joan Mir. Same scenario happened in Japan, where Fenati once again mastered the wet conditions and scored his 3rd win of the season. Solid prestations followed in Australia, Malaysia and Valencia, where he finished 6th, 7th and 4th, respectively. He finished the season as a runner-up, 93 points behind one-man-show Joan Mir.

Taking into consideration the fact that Fenati had not raced for a period of 6 months before the season opener in Qatar due to his dismissal from Valentino Rossi`s team in mid 2016, we can affirm that the Italian veteran had a great 2017 season. Next year we will finally see him stepping up to the intermmediate class.

 

1. Joan Mir (#36)

For sure there is no suprise that the first position of our top 10 goes to Joan Mir, who can be easily described in one word at the end of this season – UNSTOPPABLE.

Having clinched the “Rookie of the Year” title in 2016, Joan Mir started the season in the best way possible, winning in both Qatar and Argentina. This allowed him to slow down a little bit in Austin, where he finished 8th.

Mir came back to podium ways on home turf in Jerez, where he finished 3rd after a magnificent battle with Aron Canet, Romano Fenati and Marcos Ramirez. Two weeks later in France, he took advantage of Fenati`s crash and scored another win, increasing his lead in the championship considerably.

Total madness in the last laps of the Italian and Dutch GPs saw Mir falling down into 7th and 9th, respectively, but there was no reason to dispair as the Spaniard born in Mallorca had won the Catalan GP, which took place between the other 2 races.

Mir struck again before the summer break when he pipped Fenati on the very last lap in Sachsenring, increasing his lead to 37 points. He started the second half of the year in the same manner as the first, with two resounding and dominant wins in Brno and Austria.

With a difference of already 64 points after Austria, Mir did not slow down and won again in Aragon, after a 2nd place in Misano and a 5th place in Silverstone. The only race without points occured in Japan, where Mir could not handle the wet conditions and crossed the line in 17th.

However, that motivated Mir even more as he went on to win the following race at Phillip Island and mathematically clinch the title. One week later he won again, this time in Malaysia, reaching a milestone of 10 wins in a single season.

In the season finale at Valencia, Mir ran wide in the opening laps and fall outside the points zone. Nonetheless, Mir once again showed his class and climbed all the way up to P2, finishing the season with 10 wins, 13 podium finishes, 1 pole position and 341 points (a new points record for the lightweight class).

Last rider to score 10 wins in a single season in the lightweight class was a certain Marc Marquez. Next year we will see Joan Mir racing in the Moto2 class alongside powerhouse team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS, so we can expect even greater things from the young Spaniard.

Canet and Mir lead the Moto3 pack after Day 1 at the Aragon GP

Aron Canet topped the combined timesheets of Day 1 in the lightweight class at the Aragon GP as his time from FP1 remained the quickest after some rain hit the track in FP2. 

FP2 was wet only at the start and then dried out, but the vast majority of the riders was not able to improve on their previous times. Aron Canet freezed the clock at 1:59.114 in FP1, only 0.009 ahead of championship leader Joan Mir. The duo was also on top in FP2, but with Mir ahead this time. However, as we mentioned above, the times did not improve in the afternoon session, so Canet remained the fastest rider on Day 1.

Third overall was Niccolo Antonelli, who is looking to save what can still be saved out of this disastrous season. Compatriot Enea Bastianini was right behind in P4.

Another one looking to impress on home turf is Del Conca Gresini s Jorge Martin, who comes in Aragon after crashing out of the previous GP while in P2. The Spaniard finished the day in 5th, ahead of Nicolo Bulega.

Tatsuki Suzuki and Bo Bendsneyder were 7th and 8th, respectively, while title contender Romano Fenati came 9th. Marcos Ramirez locked out the top 10.

Canet wins Moto3 thriller at Assen

Canet takes advantage of Moto3 last lap madness and takes his second win in Assen.

Aron Canet took the win in the Moto3 race after a fantastic battle with 10 other riders. Romano Fenati finished in second, with John McPhee locking out the podium. The start saw a very determined Nakarin Atiratphuvapat going in front after turn one, but the Thai rider could not resist in front.

He was slowly but surely swallowed by the pack. Jorge Martin took the lead, followed by Bo Bendsneyder, Joan Mir, Tatsuki Suzuki and Adam Norrodin. The Spaniard tried to get away, but the local hero had other plans.

In the meantime, Romano Fenati was making his way up to the front. Mir, Fenati, Martin and Bendsneyder changed positions between them lap by lap, until a second group of riders, consisting of Canet, Ramirez, Danilo and McPhee made the junction.

With few laps to go, Ramirez took the lead. Martin tried to overtake him on the outside, but he failed. They touched and Martin went wide, falling in 11th place. Entering the last lap it was Mir who was leading, with McPhee second, McPhee third, Canet 4th and Fenati fifth. Poleman Martin was in 7th. Aron Canet went up in 2nd and Martin in 6th.

As the group entered Ramshoek, every rider tried to overtake as many riders as possible. Fenati was the big winner out of this total madness, the Italian taking the lead. The big loser was former leader Joan Mir, who found himself in P11. Adam Norrodin crashed out, leaving Mir and Bendsneyder to battle for P9.

Canet made a decisive move on Fenati and kept his place until the end. Thus, he obtained his second victory of the season. Once again, Fenati had to deal with second place. John McPhee was rewarded for his excellent effort with the last spot on the podium. Poleman Martin finished 4th, completing a great comeback from P11. Jules Danilo crossed the line in 5th.

Marcos Ramirez had another strong race, but once again not enough to climb on the podium. He finished in 6th, followed by Gabriel Rodrigo and Tatsuki Suzuki. Right before the finish line, Bendsneyder made contact with Mir and crashed. Mir finished 9th, while Bendsneyder’s bike crossed the line ahead of the rider.

As the rulebook says, a rider has to be in contact with his bike when crossing the line in order to have his finish validated. So, Bendsneyder was disqualified. Bulega took advantage and locked out the top 10. Bastianini, Diggianantonio and Pagliani also suffered crashes, but all three walked away unharmed.

In the general standings, Mir leads with 140 points, but his advantage has been significantly cut off. Canet îs now second with 110 points, while Fenati falls in 3rd with 108 points. Martin goes up în 4th with 89 points, while McPhee is now fifth with 83 points.

Aron Canet își ia revanșa după greșeala de la Austin

Aron Canet se impune pe Jerez de la Frontera dupa un final de cursa magnific.

Spaniolul Aron Canet s-a revanșat dupa căzătura de pe Circuitul Americilor de cand conducea cursa si s-a impus la Jerez. Podiumul a fost completat de Romano Fenati si Joan Mir.

Cursa a început cu pole-man-ul Jorge Martin având un start ratat. Spaniolul a ajuns in afara top 5-ului, zona in care a stat pe toata durata cursei. Niccolo Antonelli luase un start bun si ajunsese pe 3, însă un acroșaj cu Tatsuki Suzuki le-a răpit amândurora sansa de a acumula vreun punct.

Liderul de la general, Joan Mir, plecat de pe 9, și-a facut rapid loc pana la locurile fruntașe. Deși grupul fruntaș a avut in componenta de la 8 pana la 10 piloti, doar 5 dintre ei au emis pretenții la pozițiile de podium.

Aceștia au fost Romano Fenati, Aron Canet, Joan Mir si surprizele plăcute ale cursei, piloții Platinum Bay Real Estate, Marcos Ramirez si Darryn Binder. Fratele campionului de anul trecut a cazut din șa in urma unui contact cu Romano Fenati in ultimul viraj, astfel lasându-l doar pe Marcos Ramirez sa lupte pentru onoarea echipei.

Toti cei 4 piloti rămași s-au perindat la conducere, spectatorii putând vedea parte de extrem de multe depasiri la limita. Romano Fenati a preluat conducerea cu 3 tururi inainte de final si, profitând de duelurile aprige dintre Ramirez, Mir si Canet, a pus cateva lungimi de motocicleta intre el si spanioli.

La intrarea in ultimul tur italianul era inca la conducere, urmat de Mir si Ramirez. Aron Canet fusese depășit de Fabio DiGiannantonio, ajungând pana pe locul 5. Poleman-ul din Austin a recuperat rapid poziția si a continuat asaltul pentru o poziție de podium.

Pe la jumătatea turului, Mir, profitând de aspirație, l-a depășit pe Fenati, italianul recuperând însă poziția 2 viraje mai tarziu. Canet l-a depășit pe Ramirez si a ajuns pe 3, moment in care piloții se apropiau vertiginos de ultimul viraj.

Acolo, in urma unei manevre excepționale, Aron Canet a depășit ambii piloti aflați in fața sa si a obtinut, pentru cateva miimi, prima victorie din cariera. Romano Fenati a venit in fața lui Joan Mir si a mai redus din distanta la general, diferenta fiind acum de 9 puncte.

Marcos Ramirez a facut fara îndoiala cea mai buna cursa a carierei, însă prestația sa nu a fost azi răsplătită cu un podium, spaniolul trebuind sa se mulțumească cu locul 4.

Fabio DiGiannantonio a completat top 5-ul, in timp ce coechipierul sau, Poleman-ul Jorge Martin, a terminat abia al 9-lea. Piloții lui Valentino Rossi au încheiat pe 6 respectiv 7, cu Migno in fata lui Bulega, in timp ce Enea Bastianini a fost al 8-lea. Top 10-ul a fost închis de Juanfran Guevara. John McPhee, aflat pe 3 la general inaintea cursei, a trântit motocicleta in cursa de azi. Deși a revenit in șa, nu a mai fost capabil sa ajunga in zona punctelor.

La general, Mir continua sa conducă, cu 74 de puncte, 9 mai multe decat Fenati si 15 mai multe decat Martin. John McPhee a ajuns pe 4, la 25 de puncte sub pilotul Leopard Racing, in timp ce învingătorul de azi, Aron Canet, urca pana pe 5, la 31 de puncte sub Joan Mir.

Aron Canet zburdă catre al doilea pole din cariera

 

Spaniolul Aron Canet a dominat copios sesiunea de calificari a clasei Moto3 si va pleca de pe prima pozitie in cursa de maine. Pilotul Estrella Galicia 0,0 a fost singurul care sa coboare la pragul de 2:14, timpul sau de 2:14.644 fiind mai mult decat suficient pentru a-i asigura plecarea din pole position.

Liderul clasamentului general, Joan Mir, a reusit in ultimele secunde un tur ce l-a urcat pana pe locul 2, dar la o distanta astronomica de Canet – 0.987. Castigatorul de anul trecut, italianul Romano Fenati, va completa prima linie, dupa ce a fost devansat de Mir pentru doar o sutime.

Nicolo Bulega pare hotarat sa lase in urma prestatiile dezamagitoare din Qatar si Argentina. Protejatul lui Valentino Rossi va deschide linia a doua, dupa ce a stabilit timpul de 2:15.815. Linia secunda va fi completata de pilotii lui Fausto Gresini, cu Jorge Martin in fata lui Fabio DiGiannantonio.

Enea Bastianini revine si el in prim-planul competitiei, vicecampionul de anul trecut inregistrand cea mai buna pozitie de calificare din acest sezon – locul 7 (+1.388 fata de Canet). Niccolo Antonelli se afla pe pozitia secunda cu cateva minute inainte de finalul sesiunii, insa italianul nu a putut raspunde rivalilor care isi imbunatateau rand pe rand rezultatele si a terminat doar al optulea.

Principalul rival al lui Mir in clasamentul general, scotianul John McPhee, a completat linia a treia, in timp ce celalalt pilot al lui Aki Ajo, Bo Bendsneyder, a inchis top 10-ul.
Desi s-au descurcat bine in antrenamente, pilotii RBA Racing reprezinta surpriza neplacuta a calificarilor. Ei au terminat doar pe 13 respectiv 14, cu Guevara in fata lui Gabriel Rodrigo.

Cursa clasei Moto3 are programat startul maine, de la ora 19:00, ora Romaniei.

Aron Canet, de neoprit in prima zi a weekend-ului texan

 

Spaniolul Aron Canet, pilot Estrella Galicia 0,0, a fost cel mai rapid in ambele sesiuni de antrenamente ale clasei Moto3 desfasurate vineri.

Diferenta dintre el si restul lumii a fost enorma. In primul antrenament, Aron a inghețat cronometrul la 2:16.820, fiind mai rapid decat urmatorul clasat (Romano Fenati) cu o secunda si o zecime.

In a doua sesiune, spaniolul a coborat pana la 2:16.750, devansandu-l pe Joan Mir pentru 736 de miimi.
Toti pilotii clasei mezine au stabilit in al doilea antrenament timpi mai buni decat in primul, astfel ca clasamentul combinat coincide cu clasamentul celui de-al doilea antrenament.

Liderul la general, Joan Mir, a obtinut locul 2 in defavoarea lui Romano Fenati, timpul sau fiind cu 0.146 mai rapid decat al italianului. Protejatul lui Fausto Gresini, Jorge Martin, i-a urmat indeaproape, spaniolului lipsindu-i doar 39 de miimi pentru a ajunge pe un loc de podium provizoriu. Juanfran Guevara a inchis top 5-ul.

Colegul său de la RBA Racing, Gabriel Rodrigo, a reusit o performanță imbucurătoare dupa fractura de clavicula suferita in Qatar, terminand pe locul 6, cu un timp de 2:18.054. La doar 2 sutimi in spatele sau a fost protejatul lui Valentino Rossi, italianul Andrea Migno.

Enea Bastianini a dat semne de revenire si a obtinut in sfarsit o clasare onorabila dupa prestatiile dezolante din Qatar si Argentina. El a terminat al optulea, fiind cu 1.394 mai lent decat liderul Canet. Top 10-ul a fost inchis de John McPhee si Niccolo Antonelli.

Pilotii clasei mezine vor reveni pe circuit maine, intre orele 17:00-17:45, pentru FP3, si intre 20:35-21:15 pentru sesiunea de calificari.

Bulega domina ziua 2

 

Dupa ce Aron Canet a fost cel mai rapid pilot al clasei mezine in prima zi, astazi italianul Nicolo Bulega a fost cel care a dominat, el gasindu-se pe primul loc la finalul fiecareia dintre cele 3 sesiuni desfasurate azi.

Cel mai rapid timp a fost obtinut chiar in prima sesiune a zilei, Bulega oprind cronometrul la 1:46.232. Italianul a fost urmat de liderul de ieri, Aron Canet, care a fost mai lent cu 0.131. Jorge Martin si-a mentinut forma buna de ieri si a incheiat prima sesiune pe locul 3, cu 1:46.415.

Romano Fenati, dupa ce a terminat al doilea ieri, s-a multumit astazi cu locul 4. El si-a imbunatatit totusi timpul, obtinand astazi un 1:46.486, timp cu 0.252 mai bun decat ceea ce obtinuse ieri.

Surpriza placuta a zilei de azi a fost argentinianul Gabriel Rodrigo, care a incheiat topul 5. Rezultate neasteptat de bune au obtinut pilotii echipei Platinum Bay Real Estate, Marcos Ramirez si Darryn Binder, care s-au regasit pe locurile 7, respectiv 10.

Colegul lui Gabri Rodrigo de la RBA Racing, Juanfran Guevara, a terminat chiar sub coechipierul sau, pe locul 6, cu un timp cu 0.098 mai slab decat al acestuia si cu 0.505 mai slab decat al lui Bulega.

Echipa RedBull KTM Ajo a fost reprezentata in top 10 de olandezul Bo Bendsneyder (locul 8), in timp ce campioana din 2015, Leopard Racing, l-a avut pe Joan Mir in pozitia a noua.

De notat faptul ca toti pilotii din top 10-ul timpilor combinati ai zilei de astazi si-au stabilit rezultatele reper inca din prima sesiune, astfel ca top 10-ul primei sesiuni coincide cu top 10-ul timpilor combinati.

Pe de-a lungul celor 3 sesiuni au existat doua intreruperi cu steag rosu, una datorita unei cazaturi a lui Ayumu Sasaki, si una datorita unei cazaturi a lui Enea Bastianini. Ambii piloti au scapat nevatamati.

Aron Canet stabilește referința în prima zi a testelor de la Moto3

Aron Canet a fost cel mai rapid pilot la Jerez la categoria mezină.

Sesiunea de teste finală înainte de debutul noului de teste se pare că le-a priit localnicilor. Aron Canet și Jorge Martin au fost în fruntea ierarhiei în prima zi de la Jerez.

Canet, debutant în 2016, a fost constant în frunte, cu excepția ultimului segment, atunci când Romano Fenati a semnat cel mai rapid tur. Per total, pilotul de la Estrella Galicia a înghețat cronometrul într-un excelent 1:46.465, cu aproape șase zecimi mai rapid decât compatriotul său, Jorge Martin.

Readaptarea lui Romano Fenati la motomondial continuă în mod pozitiv și la Jerez. Pilotul echipei Ongetta Rivacold a încheiat prima zi a testelor pe ultima treaptă a podiumului, dar la peste șase zecimi distanță de Canet.

O zi dificilă a fost pentru echipa manageriată de Aki Ajo. Red Bull KTM a adus doar un singur prototip în top cinci, în persoana lui Bo Bendsneyder. De cealaltă parte a garajului, Niccolo Antonelli a încheiat ziua pe un dezolant loc 19.

Surpriza plăcută a zilei a fost reprezentată de prezența japonezului Sasaki pe locul al optulea, dat fiind faptul că pilotul nipon a bătut niște nume sonore ale clasei în prima sa zi de teste la Moto3.

Mâine vor continua testele la categoriile mici ale motomondialului, Moto3 și Moto2, în timp ce în perioada 10-12 martie vor avea loc ultimele teste ale clasei MotoGP în Qatar, la Losail.

Aron Canet, de neoprit dupa sesiunile de antrenamente la clasa mica

a582e

Tanarul spaniol al echipei Estrella Galicia: Aron Canet, a spulberat propria referinta stabilita ieri in FP2 cu aproape o secunda, ajungand la 1’42.051.

Niccolo Antonelli a ramas pe locul al 2-lea, castigand aproape 8 zecimi fata de propriul tur rapid, dar distanta fata de timpul de azi a lui Canet este de peste un sfert de secunda. “Pecco” Bagnaia si-a adus modelul Mahindra pe locul 3, castigand si el aproape o secunda, dar si 7 pozitii fata de ziua de ieri.

Andrea Migno a urcat 12 pozitii fata de ziua de vineri, castigand aproape o secunda si 2 zecimi si a terminat pe locul 4 in FP3, in timp ce pilotul lui Aleix Espargaro: Gabriel Rodrigo, pare intepenit pe locul al 5-lea, castigand si el 7 zecimi fata de ieri. Fabio Quartararo, mai degraba invizibil in prima zi, a urcat si el pozitii importante, pana pe 6 in fata trio-ului italian: Enea Bastianini, Nicolo Bulega, care a cazut 3 pozitii fata de vineri si Romano Fenati, coechipierul fiului lui Davide Bulega. Brad Binder a facut din nou o sesiune de antrenamente mai degraba modesta, incheind top10-ul, dar liderul clasamentului general mai mereu nu s-a vazut in antrenamente, iar in calificari si mai ales in cursa, s-a dezlantuit. Asadar, sa nu ne ambalam inca.

De la 13:35, pe Digisport 3, Moto3-ul va deschide ziua calificarilor din mondialul de viteza.
