2018 Motegi Moto2 FP3 Result: Quartararo Flies in the Dry

With 10 minutes left in FP3 Saturday at the Motegi circuit, Fabio Quartararo seized control of the timesheet with a 1'51.293 that put him at the top for the rest of the dry, sunny session. The fast lap topped Miguel Oliveira's FP3-leading time by four-tenths of a second and it continued Quartararo's late-season surge.

2018 Motegi Moto2 FP2 Result: Lecuona Finds the Fast, Dry Line

Iker Lecuona set the fastest Moto2 lap time on Friday at Motegi as the circuit finally dried sufficiently for riders to push hard on full slicks -- at least for the early part of the afternoon session. Championship leader Francesco Bagnaia slotted into second, a tenth of a second from the leader's time. It also was the Kalex rider's first posted time of the weekend as he didn't emerge from the pits in the mixed conditions of FP1. Agusto Fernandez rounded out the top three.

Not in unusual fashion, the intermediate class got the worst of both worlds, enjoying barely five minutes in fully dry conditions before raindrops started falling, on and off throughout the session but not significant enough to decisively stop play.

The final casual outing for the intermediate class was a more subdued affair but a couple of riders did manage to improve on Friday times and find some gains on race pace. The difference was minimal, Fabio Quartararo finding the right tow to pick up the lead halfway through the session and keep it at the checkered flag. Ironically, the man who aided Quartararo along the straights in his bid for the lead struggled to drag himself into the top 15 for much of the session.
