2021 Barcelona Moto2 FP3 Result: Gardner Demotes The Fernandez Duet

The final practice session of the premier class was a familiar sight with championship leader Remy Gardner demoting the Fernandez clan out of the limelight in the closing stages of FP3. Teammate Raul Fernandez was only two hundredths of a second back, while Augusto Fernandez dropped to third, after having led the way for most of the session. Aron Canet in fourth adds a third Spaniard to the mix, while Bo Bendsneyder joined the top five early on.

Marco Bezzecchi and Marcos Ramirez were the only other riders to post a lap time within half a second of the leader, with Xavi Vierge close behind in 8th position. Sam Lowes finished the session 9th and failed to improve on his Friday time after missing out on some track time due to a harmless early tumble at turn 10. Marcel Schrotter rounded out the top 10, followed by two sets of teammates: Marcel Schrotter and rookie Tony Arbolino for Liqui Moly Intact GP and Joe Roberts and more surprisingly Lorenzo Dalla Porta for Italtrans Racing. The final Q2 tickets went to Ai Ogura, whose session got cut short by a late crash at turn 4.

Although he spent most of the session within the top 14, Albert Arenas got demoted by Dalla Porta’s late charge and the Moto3 champion missed out on Q2 by three hundredths of a second. He will be joined in the Q1 line-up by the likes of Tom Luthi, Jorge Navarro, Jake Dixon and Fabio Di Giannantonio, although the Italian visited the medical centre for a check-up after a nasty highside at turn 4.

2021 Barcelona MotoGP FP3 Result: Morbidelli Leads Quartararo

The premier class returned to a much sunnier Montmeló on Saturday morning and the improved conditions saw the lap record improved further and gaps reduced throughout the field. Johann Zarco’s Friday benchmark stood until the final 15 minutes of FP3, when Fabio Quartararo anticipated the shootout and posted the first 1:38 time of the weekend, leaving rivals with a half second gap to recover. The timing screens only really turned red in the final couple of minutes and Franco Morbidelli promptly reminded his former teammate of his speed despite the antique material underneath him. The Italian went quicker by half a tenth and showed similar pace and consistency to Quartararo throughout the session.

Miguel Oliveira was the early leader of the session and kept close to the top positions to finish third, while Pecco Bagnaia left it really late to find his way back in the limelight, making the jump to fourth on his final flying lap. Aleix Espargaro in fifth was only a tenth off top spot and closely followed by Brad Binder. Although he finished down in 15th position in the session, Zarco’s FP2 time stood the test of time and kept him seventh on the combined timesheets, ahead of Maverick Viñales, who was only three tenths slower than his leading colleagues and showed similar pace on used rubber.

The final Q2 tickets went to two riders who will welcome the break from Q1, Joan Mir and Valentino Rossi, the Italian’s late charge demoting Jack Miller out of the combined top 10. The Ducati man will join the likes of Takaaki Nakagami, Danilo Petrucci and Repsol Honda duo Pol Espargaro and Marc Marquez in Q1.

2021 Barcelona Moto3 FP3 Result: Nepa Surprises Rodrigo

The sun finally found its way to Barcelona and there was no cloud in sight for the final practice session of the Moto3 class. Gabriel Rodrigo started the day like he finished Friday, at the top of the timesheets at the start of FP3 and maintained his prime position on the combined standings until the final shootout for Q2 places. With the habitual waiting around and faffing about, the time attack lasted only one lap but timing screens turned red all over and the order changed quite drastically. In the end it was Stefano Nepa popping up to the top of the charts and demoting Rodrigo from the lead by four hundredths of a second. Tatsuki Suzuki’s late charge lifted him up to third, with Deniz Öncü and Romano Fenati joining the top five.

Niccolò Antonelli, Jeremy Alcoba, Dennis Foggia and Ayumu Sasaki all finished the session within half a second of the leader, while Filip Salac rounded out the top ten positions. Kaito Toba and Adrian Fernandez missed out on the top 10 by less than a tenth of a second but safely secured Q2 places. The remaining lucky tickets went to Darryn Binder and Izan Guevara, the only riders who failed to get quicker on Saturday morning and finished 21st and 27th on the timesheets but their FP2 times saved the day. That left the likes of Sergio Garcia, Jaume Masia, Andrea Migno, Pedro Acosta and John McPhee to battle it out in Q1, despite only being around 7 tenths slower than the leader.

2021 Barcelona MotoE FP2 Result: Tulovic Tops Torres

MotoE closed day 1 in Catalunya and Lukas Tulovic was the fastest rider over the two sessions, half a tenth ahead of reigning champion Jordi Torres. Yonny Hernandez is making obvious progress to join the top three, a tenth ahead of FP1 leader Eric Granado. Fermìn Aldeguer continued to shine and completed the top five, while Dominique Aegerter in sixth place was the only other rider posting a time within half a second of the leader. Miquel Pons, Alessandro Zaccone, Mattia Casadei and Xavi Cardelus completed a top 10 covered by one second.

2021 Barcelona Moto2 FP2 Result: Another Session, Another Fernandez

Cloud cover was still firmly over the circuit for the intermediate class’ second practice session and even though track conditions meant bigger improvements on the timesheets in the other classes, progress in Moto2 was limited. That didn’t stop Raul Fernandez from going fastest overall in the final quarter of the session and his time stood until the checkered flag waved. The rookie ended the day two tenths of a second quicker than teammate Remy Gardner, followed by the Marc VDS duo of Sam Lowes and Augusto Fernandez, all of whom failed to go any quicker than FP1.

Xavi Vierge joined the top 5 of the afternoon, one tenth of a second quicker than Marco Bezzecchi. The Italian was half a second off top spot but his session was complicated by the odd sight of bodywork dismantling along the straight early in FP2. Ai Ogura climbed into a solid seventh position ahead of Aron Canet and Fabio Di Giannantonio, while Marcel Schrotter rounded out the top 10, narrowly ahead of Marcos Ramirez and Jake Dixon.

Although they didn’t make much noise in FP2, Hector Garzo and Bo Bendsneyder took the remaining top 14 positions on the combined standings and left the likes of Joe Roberts and Jorge Navarro looking for more speed in FP3, after crashes hampered their session.

2021 Barcelona MotoGP FP2 Result: Zarco Demotes Morbidelli

A still overcast Barcelona circuit set the scene for the second practice session of the day but given the improved conditions and the extra handful of experience on the revised layout, FP1 times were quick to tumble. Franco Morbidelli claimed top spot early in the session and went unchallenged until the final time attack, when Johann Zarco snuck ahead by two hundredths of a second, both riders also looking strong on pace. Fabio Quartararo trailed his former teammate by a tenth and was thereabouts on rhythm, while Brad Binder in fourth place was the last rider to post a time within half a second of the leader.

Pecco Bagnaia and Maverick Viñales kept close and consistent, less than a tenth of a second ahead of Jack Miller. Enea Bastianini impressed in 8th place, the rookie only 7 tenths off top spot and ahead of the much more experienced FP1 leader, Aleix Espargaro. Pol Espargaro posted an identical time to his brother around their favourite playground and grabbed the final position in the provisional top 10.

Takaaki Nakagami missed out by half a tenth, while the top 16 positions were covered by one second. That also included the likes of Miguel Oliveira, who started the session with some dirt-tracking at turn 10 and finished it down in 14th after being the only rider to tackle the time attack on hard tyres. Marc Marquez was also alone in his decision to run a medium rear for the shootout and following Joan Mir around only helped him in finishing ahead of the reigning world champion in 15th position. Valentino Rossi ended the day 19th, over a second and a half slower than the leader and hoping for a much better Saturday.

2021 Barcelona Moto3 FP2 Result: Rodrigo Takes Top Spot

The second set of practice sessions started with clouds scattered around the track, to match the scattering of fans in the stands. The latter was much more welcomed than the former but rain kept away and riders got plenty of time to work on their pace and their place in the top 14. Gabriel Rodrigo set camp at the top of the timing screens early on but there were no significant improvements on the combined standings until the quick shootout at the end of the session. Once red sectors started cropping up, it was Rodrigo once more who posted the first and only 1:47 time of the day and set the new lap record on the revised layout.

After a more subdued FP1, Darryn Binder came within eight hundredths of a second of top spot, followed by Romano Fenati and the first of the home boys, Izan Guevara. The rookie finished three hundredths of a second ahead of Ayumu Sasaki, with Jeremy Alcoba in sixth position as the final rider within half a second of the leader. Tatsuki Suzuki in 8th place infiltrated the Italian brigade completing the rest of the top 10, with Andrea Migno in 7th, Stefano Nepa 9th and Niccolò Antonelli 10th.

FP1 leader Sergio Garcia finished 11th in the session but only dropped to 7th overall courtesy of his morning benchmark, while the remaining provisional top 14 positions went to Riccardo Rossi, Pedro Acosta and Filip Salac, despite the Czech rider being only 22nd in the session. The likes of John McPhee, Jaume Masia and Dennis Foggia will be hoping to make their move on Saturday morning, much like Deniz Öncü, who took a tumble at turn 2 early in the session and missed out on the rest of the day’s action.

2021 Barcelona MotoE FP1 Result: Granado Gets Going

The MotoE cup returned to the paddock in Montmeló and fresh off his victory in Le Mans, Eric Granado was keen to head back to the top of the timesheets in FP1. The Brazilian topped the session by a tenth of a second from Jordi Torres and with Lukas Tulovic joining them in the top three. Yonny Hernandez held top spot for much of the session before dropping back to fourth, while Mattia Casadei joined the top five. Fermìn Aldeguer returned to the class after a short and reasonably successful outing in Moto2 and kept his speed to go sixth fastest in FP1, ahead of fellow rookie Miquel Pons. Cup leader Alessandro Zaccone finished the morning in 15th position, a second and a half slower than the leader and a couple tenths behind Dominique Aegerter, who was 13th.

2021 Barcelona Moto2 FP1 Result: Augusto Fernandez Back In The Spotlight

The weather in Catalunya wasn’t quite as cheerful as we’re used to but despite the cloud cover, it was warm and dry for the intermediate class’ first outing. After top rookie Raul Fernandez held onto top spot on the timing screens for most of the morning, namesake Augusto Fernandez took over at the top in the closing stages. Teammate Sam Lowes also showed solid early pace as he climbed into second position, a tenth of a second behind his colleague, while Remy Gardner also got ahead of his teammate to claim third. Raul Fernandez dropped to fourth towards the end of FP1, while Marco Bezzecchi joined the top five.

Hector Garzo in sixth was half a second slower than the leader with a tiny gap keeping the Spaniard ahead of compatriot Xavi Vierge and his teammate Jake Dixon. Jorge Navarro rounded out the top 10, with Fabio Di Giannantonio missing out by seven hundredths of a second. The rest of the provisional top 14 positions were occupied by Marcel Schrotter, Nicolò Bulega and Aron Canet. Ai Ogura was the second best rookie in 15th spot, three hundredths of a second ahead of Joe Roberts.

2021 Barcelona MotoGP FP1 Result: Home Sweet Home For Aleix Espargaro

The paddock’s return to Barcelona was greeted with a light and innocent cloud cover and the first session went to one of the home favourites, with Aleix Espargaro demoting Franco Morbidelli from the top of the timesheets in the final couple of minutes of FP1. The Italian settled for second by two hundredths of a second, while Pol Espargaro also made a great start on home soil to climb into third. Maverick Viñales and Johann Zarco completed the top five, with championship leader Fabio Quartararo sixth and four tenths off the lead.

Miguel Oliveira was the lead KTM in seventh position while newly renewed teammate Brad Binder finished 20th. Reigning world champion Joan Mir and the Ducati duo of Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia rounded out the top 10 positions, with Takaaki Nakagami missing out by four hundredths of a second. Jorge Martin had a trouble-free return from injury to finish 12th, ahead of Marc Marquez, who inadvertently gave him a little tow to help improve his time. While the Pramac rider makes a long-awaited return, compatriot Alex Rins headed to the surgeon’s table after he crashed while cycling the track on Thursday and injured his arm.
