2012 Silverstone Moto2 FP3 Result: Espargaro Dominates Once Again

Pol Espargaro has dominated the final session of free practice for the Moto2 class at Silverstone, setting a time nearly a second faster than 2nd-place man Scott Redding. Johann Zarco took 3rd, ahead of Bradley Smith and Andrea Iannone, while championship leader Thomas Luthi ended with the 6th fastest time. The session was affected by the weather, which continues to be unstable at Silverstone, rain falling halfway through sending everyone scurrying back into the pits. The difficult conditions caught out Marc Marquez, the Spanish prodigy crashing heavily in the final corner, but walking away unscathed.

Marc not qualifying... does that mean he doesnt race? Not quite sure of the rules these days.
