2021 Le Mans Moto3 FP3 Result: Another Fernandez Goes Fast

After the changing conditions caused some headaches on day 1 at Le Mans, Saturday morning brought a fully wet track surface following overnight rain, which meant that the lightweight class stood no chance of changing the order in the combined standings. However, it was a chance for rookie Adrian Fernandez to shine, the Spaniard snatching top spot at the checkered flag by almost half a second from Yuki Kunii. Andrea Migno made a late jump into the top three, while John McPhee got demoted to fourth, while Niccolò Antonelli completed the top five.

Runaway championship leader Pedro Acosta added another small tumble to his collection from Friday but the rookie held top spot for much of the session, until the final few minutes, when he got demoted to sixth place. Teammate Jaume Masia was seventh, while also putting his name on the lengthy crash list, alongside the likes of Xavier Artigas, Sergio Garcia, Carlos Tatay or Andi Farid Izdihar. Kaito Toba dropped to eighth place after his fastest time got cancelled due to a yellow flag infringement, while FP2 leader Gabriel Rodrigo and Stefano Nepa rounded out the top ten once all sanctions were applied.

2021 Le Mans Moto2 FP2 Result: Lowes Retrieves Top Spot

The intermediate class also got to enjoy some solid running in dry conditions, despite the track getting pretty dark in places and gravel traps getting as busy as ever. Augusto Fernandez started the session as the fastest man in the improved conditions, until teammate Sam Lowes took over at the top of the timesheets for the final 10 minutes. Top rookie Raul Fernandez came within a tenth of a second of the lead, ahead of his more experienced namesake from the Marc VDS squad. Championship leader Remy Gardner and a rapid Nicolò Bulega completed the top five, four tenths off top spot. 

Xavi Vierge made a fast start at Le Mans, sixth in the session and half a second slower than Lowes. FP1 leader Aron Canet left it quite late to improve on the morning’s benchmark but eventually joined the top 10 and got promoted to seventh position after a flurry of late lap cancellations for the likes of Ai Ogura, Marcel Schrotter, Marco Bezzecchi or Stefano Manzi. Fabio Di Giannantonio also inherited 8th place despite a late crash, while Bezzecchi dropped to ninth. Bo Bendsneyder completed the top ten, seven tenths off the lead. 

The remaining Q2 tickets were provisionally held by Schrotter, Manzi, Jorge Navarro and Hector Garzo. Marcos Ramirez got pushed out of contention after the session due to a yellow flag infrigement during one of the many yellow flags that closed the session. Joe Roberts was another of the riders to miss the cut for now, after a low-key afternoon that ended with a crash.

2021 Le Mans MotoGP FP2 Result: Zarco Leads On Home Soil

It was a dry start for the second practice session of the day but black clouds threatened riders as they left pitlane. That meant soft slick tyres were getting stressed straight away, in an early bid to secure a precious top 10 placement but the weather let them run around on a dry playground for a while longer. Although the clouds stayed to spectate for the remainder of the session, they didn’t take centre stage and the premier class could battle it out in a final time attack that ended in a French 1-2, with Johann Zarco snatching top spot away from compatriot Fabio Quartararo by less than a tenth of a second. Yamaha enjoyed their afternoon much more than the wet morning, seeing all four machines inside the top 10, although Quartararo also suffered a little crash at popular turn 3. Maverick Viñales added a second Yamaha to the top three, while Pol Espargaro missed out by one thousandth of a second, the Honda man showing good speed throughout the session.

Franco Morbidelli eventually joined the top 10 for the final five minutes, ending the session fifth, while Miguel Oliveira was the sole KTM provisionally in Q2 from sixth position. After outsmarting rivals in FP1, Jack Miller had it all to do all over again in FP2 and it didn’t prove as easy the second time around. The Ducati man took time to join the top 10 and when he did, he promptly crashed at turn 7 and his fastest time got cancelled for a yellow flag infringement. However, the final time attack allowed him to climb back into seventh position.

Marc Marquez kept himself entertained with some off-roading at Garage Vert, which hampered his progress in the early part of the session but the Spaniard recovered to climb into eighth place, eight tenths of a second off top spot. Valentino Rossi served us a rarity as he joined the top 10 in the closing stages of FP2, ahead of Takaaki Nakagami and pushing out Alex Rins. The Spaniard did not help his cause by crashing out at turn 3 and teammate Joan Mir soon followed his example at turn 8, leaving both Suzukis provisionally out of Q2. Championship leader Pecco Bagnaia found himself in the same position, the Italian joining the gravel trap at turn 3 early in the session and although he rejoined the action, he could not improve on 12th position. Turn 3 also got two visits from Aleix Espargaro, the frustrated Aprilia man left in 14th place by his two mishaps.

2021 Le Mans Moto3 FP2 Result: Rodrigo Takes Over

After the crash fest of the morning session, bright sunshine bathed Moto3 machines as they left pitlane for FP2, although clouds still surrounded the French circuit. Riders were quick to improve on the morning’s benchmark and the final 10 minutes seemed even more important than usual in securing a provisional top 14 position, given the questionable weather forecast for Saturday at Le Mans. Gabriel Rodrigo made a fast start to his weekend, taking control of the session in the final couple of minutes and although there were plenty of red sectors on the timing screens for the final flying laps, no rival could beat his time. Darryn Binder came closest, one tenth of a second behind the Argentinian rider, while Jaume Masia dropped to third after intermittently leading the session.

Niccolò Antonelli and Deniz Öncü joined the top five, closely followed by Andrea Migno, although the Italian added a third crash of the day to his achievements, this time at turn 13. Compatriot Romano Fenati and Ryusei Yamanaka were the final riders to post a time within half a second of the leader, while Stefano Nepa and Ayumu Sasaki rounded out the top 10. The remaining places in the provisional top 14 were taken by Jason Dupasquier, FP1 leader John McPhee, Riccardo Rossi and Sergio Garcia, while Carlos Tatay missed out by a tenth of a second and was eight tenths slower than the leader.

The slight surprise of FP2 was championship leader Pedro Acosta, who dropped down the timesheets in the closing stages and finished 18th fastest, but bearing in mind that this was the rookie’s first day around Le Mans.

2021 Le Mans MotoE FP1 Result: Aegerter Leads Granado

The second race weekend for the MotoE cup got underway in Le Mans and the gaps in FP1 seemed to be getting smaller since their first outing. Dominique Aegerter led the way early on and resumed the lead for the final 10 minutes of the session by a mere four hundredths of a second from rival Eric Granado, who is looking to bounce back from the disappointment of Jerez. Lukas Tulovic joined the top three positions, while winner of the first round, Alessandro Zaccone and reigning cup champion Jordi Torres rounded out the top five. Hikari Okubo, Corentin Perolari, Matteo Ferrari, Andrea Mantovani and rapid rookie Fermín Aldeguer completed the top 10 covered by one second.

2021 Le Mans Moto2 FP1 Result: Sun Comes Out For Canet

Rain had stopped and clouds gave way to a touch of sunshine as intermediate class riders got going in FP1 and they eventually enjoyed the rare sight of dry asphalt at Le Mans. That allowed times to get quicker and quicker as the session progressed and top spot change hands until the checkered flag, when Aron Canet claimed the honours. The Spaniard got a helping hand/tow from Sam Lowes on his way to topping the timesheets by a tenth of a second. Stefano Manzi was second, with Lowes in third. Fabio Di Giannantonio also saw his name at the top of the timing screens in the closing stages of FP1, but eventually settled for fourth, a tenth ahead of Augusto Fernandez.

Xavi Vierge and teammate Jake Dixon joined the top 7, ahead of Marcel Schrotter, while championship leader Remy Gardner was ninth, eight tenths off top spot. Hafizh Syahrin rounded out a much closer top 10 compared to the sessions before them, with Hector Garzo, Yari Montella, Jorge Navarro and Lorenzo Baldassarri completing the top 14 covered by one second. The likes of Marcos Ramirez, Tom Luthi or Raul Fernandez were not too far back but will be hoping that the good weather will continue throughout the afternoon at least. Marco Bezzecchi finished 22nd due to a costly late crash that dropped him out of the top 5 positions where he comfortably spent the early part of the session.

2021 Le Mans MotoGP FP1 Result: Miller Outsmarts Opposition

Le Mans kept everyone on their toes from the very first outing of the premier class, with changing track conditions throughout FP1. The session started cold and damp, before patches of blue sky hinted at a dry line that allowed Jack Miller to work his magic on slicks. With rain making an appearance straight after the Australian built an advantage of almost three seconds at the top of the timesheets, Miller’s work was done, but the rest of the top ten was up for grabs once rivals went back to rain tyres. Johann Zarco was not tempted by slicks and was fast enough for second regardless, reducing the gap to his Ducati colleague to a second and a half. Joan Mir made a late jump into the top three, after a busy session that started with a technical issue that saw the world champion abandon his Suzuki at turn 8.

The Honda duo of Pol Espargaro and Marc Marquez joined the top 5, with Marquez one of the few riders tempted by the slicks but timing it poorly as rain started falling for the final handful of minutes. Lorenzo Savadori also seemed to enjoy the tricky conditions, the rookie placing Aprilia in sixth position, ahead of championship leader Pecco Bagnaia. Miguel Oliveira, Alex Rins and Aleix Espargaro rounded out a top ten covered by 3 seconds, while Alex Marquez missed out by two tenths of a second after a late tumble on slicks.

The session ended with no Yamahas in the top 10, Maverick Viñales 12th fastest and with teammate Fabio Quartararo down in 16th. The Spaniard did not get to be part of the late time attack after he slid out while coming out of pitlane, while Quartararo was cautiously testing the situation after his recent arm pump surgery. While Le Mans tends to be rather unpredictable, Yamaha will be hoping for enough dry track time over the next 24 hours to upset the top 10 positions for Q2.

2021 Le Mans Moto3 FP1 Result: McPhee Tops Cold Session

Le Mans did not seem to welcome the lightweight class with open arms for the first session of the weekend and provided them with a damp track and cold conditions, even a touch of fine rain towards the end. While gravel traps predictably saw a lot of action, particularly at turn 3, John McPhee was looking to bounce back after a difficult Sunday in Jerez and made a good start in Le Mans, the Scotsman taking the lead in the final couple of minutes of FP1. Sensational rookie Pedro Acosta tested the gravel at turn 3 twice, on his first visit at the French track but eventually found good speed to climb into second on the timesheets, half a second slower than McPhee. Sergio Garcia joined the top 3 closely behind his compatriot, followed by Gabriel Rodrigo, who held top spot for most of the session.

Tatsuki Suzuki joined the top 5, ahead of Andi Farid Izdihar and Adrian Fernandez, both of whom also joined the crash list. Filip Salac in eighth position was the final rider to post a time within a second of the leader, followed by teammate Andrea Migno, who opened the crash recital early in the session. Early session leader Jaume Masia completed the top 10 after a late lap cancellation for Yuki Kunii, who dropped to 14th place.
