2014 Qatar Moto3 FP3 Result: Fenati Holds Fast

Romano Fenati set the new fastest-ever Moto3 lap at the Losail Circuit to top the timesheet with a 2'06.121 in Friday's third free practice. Second-fastest Alex Rins battled Fenati for much of the session and swapped the top spot before finishing six-hundredths of a second behind. Alex Marquez finished third, another one-tenth back. The news is initially good for Honda which placed two riders in the top three after enduring a 2013 season of KTM domination. Qualifying practice will begin Saturday.

Here comes honda!

Wow, that is a quick development curve. One test ago, those Honda's were nowhere. I wonder where the improvement will plateau? I'll be watching this space with much anticipation.
