The premier class made the best of the final opportunity to show off their pace and quite a few men earned their bragging rights at the end of the 30 minutes. Pecco Bagnaia was first of those men, a tenth faster than Joan Mir’s top time but both riders had pace to spare in the low 1:32s. While the still convalescent Italian decided to rest a little by only doing one run, Mir managed to run full race distance on his tyres, to impressive results.

The intermediate class took full advantage of their final practice session and quickly challenged the hierarchy from Friday. Sam Lowes was most eager to put his name at the top of the timing screens, where it sat for a considerable amount of time, until title contender Enea Bastianini went faster and fastest for the final seven minutes of FP3. No one else could challenge the Italian’s lap record until the checkered flag, Lowes settling for second, a tenth and a half off.
The premier class put on a show for the crucial FP3 session and it started early in the morning, when the cooler conditions led to some early mistakes from the likes of Jack Miller and Miguel Oliveira, who sat in gravel traps in quick succession. Once the yellow flags stopped waving, Pecco Bagnaia was quick to improve and join the top ten, eventually snatching the lap record on his home playground. The Italian did end the session with a tumble of his own at turn six, adding to the yellow flag party prompted by late crashes from Pol Espargaro and Oliveira once again.
Even by usual FP3 standards, Moto 3 kicked the show up a notch early in the morning, in a session that saw home boy Celestino Vietti improve on the lap record to go a whole half second faster than everyone. Ai Ogura eventually reduced that by a tenth, as he recovered 20 positions to secure a Q2 spot ahead of an improving Romano Fenati.
