2014 Barcelona MotoGP FP3 Results: Bradl Posts A Scorcher

Stefan Bradl has topped the timesheets in the third session of free practice for the MotoGP class. The LCR Honda rider looked destined to have to battle through Q1, but a blistering lap at the end of the session saw him leap to the stop of the standings. Bradl dislodged Marc Marquez, who had been fast early and was circulating fast throughout, but ended the session in 2nd. Bradley Smith improved on his own very impressive time from yesterday, grabbing 3rd ahead of Dani Pedrosa, the Repsol Honda rider having found a big improvement since Friday.

The Movistar Yamahas ended the session in 5th and 6th, Jorge Lorenzo finishing ahead of Valentino Rossi, though both men showed a decent race pace later in the session. Aleix Espargaro was the only rider not to improve his time from Friday, but still managed a 7th fastest time and is through to Q2 on merit. Yonny Hernandez posted a very impressive lap on the Open Pramac Ducati, though his best times were posted in Rossi's slipstream. Hernandez still finished as best Ducati, ahead of factory rider Andrea Dovizioso, and the second Monster Tech 3 Yamaha rider Pol Espargaro.
