2013 Indianpolis Moto2 FP3 Result: Espargaro Seizes Control

Pol Espargaro made up for a lousy second practice with a fast lap in FP3 that put him on top, four tenths of a second clear of championship points leader Scott Redding. Espargaro, who announced he is headed to MotoGP next year, sits second in the championship at only 23 points behind Redding.

Redding’s time put him just a tenth of a second ahead of Jordi Torres who set FP3’s third-fastest time.  As in the prior practices, the Moto2 riders remained bunched on the timesheet, with just over one second separating first through twelveth fastest.

That

Disregarding Espargaro, who has always gone well here, that looks like a very tight top 10. Good to see Torres up there again as well, looks like Germany might not have been a fluke.
