2015 Aragon MotoGP FP3 Result: Marquez Imposes His Authority

Jorge Lorenzo's rivals found good turn of speed during FP3 for the MotoGP class, Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa and Valentino Rossi all finishing ahead of yesterday's fastest man. Lorenzo did not improve his time on Saturday morning, ending the session in 4th, though his time was very close to that of Pedrosa and Rossi. Lorenzo was clearly working on race pace, also trialling the winglets which the Movistar Yamaha team had used at Misano. Rossi decided against running the winglets, racing with the normal plain fairing.

Efren Vazquez leads the Saturday morning session of free practice for the Moto3 rider at Aragon. The Leopard Racing rider put in a late charge to depose Niccolo Antonelli from the top spot, pulling out an advantage of over a quarter of a second over the Italian. Miguel Oliveira ended the session in 3rd, just behind Antonelli, while championship leader Danny Kent took 4th spot, apparently having found a solution for the lack of front-end feel he was complaining about on Friday. Brad Binder grabbed 5th, two tenths slower than Kent, and another two tenths faster than Roman Fenati.

What's the value of testing? Judging by Jorge Lorenzo's time on Friday – a second under the race lap record, and three tenths off the outright lap record – you would have to say that it's good at least for a day's worth of practice. The Movistar Yamahas came to the Motorland Aragon circuit having tested here twice, once after Barcelona, once before Misano. The test in September allowed them to find a strong set up for this weekend, one which works well, as Lorenzo's blistering lap time in the afternoon showed so clearly.
