2020 Emilia-Romagna Moto2 FP3 Result: Bastianini Takes Control

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 SKY Racing duo of Marco Bezzecchi and Luca Marini also came within two tenths of their leading compatriot, while Marcel Schrotter joined the top five late on. Nicolo Bulega, Aron Canet and Jorge Navarro were only three tenths off top spot, with Jake Dixon and Augusto Fernandez rounding out the top ten with times within half a second of Bastianini. Tetsuta Nagashima, Xavi Vierge and Tom Luthi secured Q2 tickets, with the final top 14 position going to Joe Roberts, who failed to improve on his top time from Friday but held onto a Q2 spot, to Lorenzo Baldassarri’s misfortune. The Italian will join compatriots Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Fabio Di Giannantonio in Q1, as well as the likes of Marcos Ramirez or Hector Garzo.

2020 Catalunya World Superbike Superpole Result: Dry Track Prevails

World Superbike qualifying was twenty five minutes to set a fast lap on a track the series has never raced at and has had only one dry session this weekend. As this morning's weather dried up, slick tyres were fitted in anticipation of dry qualifying.

After one fast lap, Loris Baz set a 1'43.450 only to have Michael Ruben Rinaldi to steal the top spot with a 1'43.288. A lap later, Rinaldi knocked half a second off with a 1'42.744, joined by Toprak Razgatlioglu and Loris Baz continuing the Yamaha's form from Friday.

With fifteen minutes left, riders started to make their way back to their garages for a tea break and a new tyre, some abandoning quick laps. Jonas Folger, Alex Lowes and Tom Sykes had not set a lap time at the halfway mark while Scott Redding and Alvaro Bautista had still not headed back for their fancy rubber. 

Garrett Gerloff and Jonathan Rea snuck out for a pre-qualifying tyre lap and Gerloff moved the goalposts with a 1'42.663, holding provisional pole position for over a minute until Michael Ruben Rinaldi posted a 1'42.525 as the garages filled with activity. With seven minutes remaining, only Jonas Folger had yet to set a lap time.

Leon Haslam was the first rider with the stickier rubber and he set a 1'42.421 as the target time for anyone wanting to within a chance of pole position. Scott Redding matched Haslam in the first half of the lap, but made up pace in the second half to set a 1'42.421 only to be beaten seconds later by a much quicker Alvaro Bautista's 1'41.757. 

After a disappointing couple of weekends at Aragon, Toprak Razgatlioglu regained his crown with a 1'41.713, but Jonathan Rea spent his qualifying grip to buy a 1'41.619 as the flag came out. 

Jonathan Rea headed the front row, alongside Toprak Razgatlioglu and Alvaro Bautista. Tom Sykes was fourth quickest, with Michael van der Mark and Michael Ruben Rinaldi joining him on the second row, ahead of Scott Redding Alex Lowes and Loris Baz. Leon Haslam's opening SC0 lap was good enough for tenth pace while Jonas Folger's lack of qualifying lap left him adrift in twenty first place.

2020 Emilia-Romagna MotoGP FP3 Result: Bagnaia Goes From Record To Gravel

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. That halted a few late time attacks but the Yamahas were quick to reduce Bagnaia’s half second gap at the front. Maverick Vinales proved once again that one lap speed is not the issue and climbed into second ahead of the Petronas duo of Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli.

Joan Mir in fifth place was the only other rider within half a second of the leader and separated Valentino Rossi from the rest of the Yamaha contingent. The Doctor’s late speed and luck in escaping the yellow flags did secure him a Q2 spot from eighth overall. Brad Binder and Takaaki Nakagami had no worries, as their top times from Friday kept them securely inside the top ten, while Pol Espargaro also failed to improve due to his late crash at turn 6 but held onto ninth on the combined standings. Danilo Petrucci seems to have turned things around after a painful first outing in Misano and managed to secure the final ticket directly to Q2.

The victims of the final shootout were the likes of Miller, Aleix Espargaro, Johann Zarco, Andrea Dovizioso, Oliveira and Alex Rins – a handful of strong riders to be battling for only two spots on offer in Q1.

2020 Emilia-Romagna Moto3 FP3 Result: Vietti Steals The Record

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.

Raul Fernandez was a safe fourth, while a subdued Albert Arenas only progressed into Q2 positions in the final minute of the session, climbing into fifth position. Dennis Foggia was one of the handful of riders told off for irresponsible riding last weekend and was forced to sit out the final 15 minutes of FP3, meaning that the Leopard rider had to anticipate the shootout and snuck in a 1:41 time to ensure his participation in Q2 before the penalty was enforced. Jeremy Alcoba, Andrea Migno and Tatsuki Suzuki also made it safely into Q2, despite a late crash for the Italian, while Ayumu Sasaki snuck into the top ten at the last minute, after a late tumble of his own.

Sergio Garcia was the last rider to post a time in the 1:41s but almost eighth tenths off the lead, while rookie Barry Baltus surprised in 12th place. Stefano Nepa left it late to join the combined top 14 but when he did, he pushed John McPhee out of contention and into the Q1 battle. Despite finishing 18th in the session and serving a 15 min sit-out of his own, Jaume Masia had no worries about his place in Q2, as the Spaniard’s top time from Friday was enough to keep him fifth on the combined standings.

That wasn’t the case for Tony Arbolino, whose early time attack was halted by a yellow flag and his fastest time cancelled due to being set within the final 15 minutes that he was supposed to sit out. It was also an unfortunate morning for Gabriel Rodrigo, who first crashed at turn 3, which made him fall into the danger zone and then another tumble at turn 15 sealed the deal and placed him firmly in Q1.

After so many laps on the grippy surface of the Misano circuit, the intermediate class keeps getting faster and faster, with championship leader Luca Marini improving the all time lap record at the checkered flag in FP2. While posting the only 1:35 time of the weekend, the home favourite was only nine hundredths of a second faster than rookie Aron Canet, who seemed to have learned a lot from a challenging first weekend in Misano. Marcel Schrotter picked up the lead early on and remained inside the top three despite a tumble in the final three minutes of the session.

Sam Lowes in fourth was only two tenths off the lead, while Joe Roberts joined the top five. Marco Bezzecchi headed out of the garage and straight to the top of the timesheets but suffered an early crash at turn six and struggled to improve once he rejoined the action. However, his early benchmark was enough for sixth place. Xavi Vierge was the final rider to post a time within half a second of Marini, with a decent gap keeping him ahead of Jorge Navarro and Jake Dixon.

Lorenzo Baldassarri completed the top ten in the session but it was not enough to sneak into direct Q2 spots just yet. The likes of Tom Luthi, Nicolo Bulega, Enea Bastianini, Tetsuta Nagashima and Hector Garzo did not spend much time in the limelight in FP2 but their FP1 times were good enough to keep them in the combined top 14.

2020 Emilia-Romagna MotoGP FP2 Result: A Late Surprise From Binder

Some new names added a bit of spice to the top of the standings in the second practice session for the premier class in Misano. While usual contenders like Fabio Quartararo or Pol Espargaro took early turns in the lead, it was Brad Binder who eventually robbed them of the headline after benefitting from a fine tow from a rapid Maverick Vinales. Takaaki Nakagami brought a smile to the HRC side of the paddock as he trailed the South African by only two thousandths of a second. Quartararo might have been demoted to third, but his race pace was unrivalled, not even future teammate Maverick Vinales able to do better, although the Spaniard was busy playing with the new exhaust and carbon fibre swingarm brought by Yamaha. Pol Espargaro got his session back on track after an early tumble at turn 13, making it four factories in the top five and covered by a mere seven hundredths of a second.

Danilo Petrucci found some speed to climb into a more respectable sixth place, ahead of Miguel Oliveira and Johann Zarco, the Frenchman’s late attack pushing Pecco Bagnaia out of the combined top ten. Joan Mir was one of a handful of riders who could not go any faster than in FP1 but did well enough for ninth in the session and stayed in the provisional Q2 positions. Franco Morbidelli was in the same boat, not really featured in the FP2 spotlight but safely in the combined top ten despite finishing the session 14th.

While improving to only six tenths off the lead, Valentino Rossi was in 12th spot, ahead of Jack Miller, while Alex Rins and Andrea Dovizioso’s struggle continues outside of the top 15 positions in FP2.

2020 Emilia-Romagna Moto3 FP2 Result: The Masia Missile

Friday afternoon at Misano wasn’t too crowded to begin with, given that a dozen riders got a 15 min slap on the wrists in FP2 but once the action picked up, several of the usual contenders fought for prime position. In the end, Jaume Masia set a new all time lap record in the final minute of the session, three tenths of a second faster than the rest of his rivals led by Celestino Vietti. The Italian had a solid session in second position, keeping ahead of Tatsuki Suzuki and Andrea Migno by the narrowest of margins.

Raul Fernandez was the leader halfway through proceedings, but slid out at turn five immediately after and slid down to fifth on the timesheets. Filip Salac in sixth was the last rider to post a time within half a second of the leader, while Dennis Foggia, Stefano Nepa, Ayumu Sasaki and Albert Arenas completed the top ten.

Eager to make up for missing the first 15 of the session, Tony Arbolino led the way early on but had to make do with 11th in the end, followed by Gabriel Rodrigo, who failed to improve on his FP1 time after he took a tumble at the final turn late in the session. Combined with his 15 min penalty, it was a very short session for the Argentine rider, but he stays in those precious provisional top 14 positions, together with Kaito Toba and Jeremy Alcoba.

John McPhee continued to linger towards the bottom of the top 15, seven tenths off the lead, similarly to championship rival Ai Ogura down in 19th.
