2015 Aragon Moto3 QP Results: The Record Falls

Moto3 FP3 started in gentlemanly fashion, but by the halfway mark riders were already looking around for a tow as the long back straight without a tow will cost you at least three tenths of a second.

Within ten minutes, Brad Binder was within a few tenths of a second of last year's pole position and this morning's best times. Jorge Navarro narrowly beat it with a 1'58.526, and these times were unchallenged until around twenty minutes in when Miguel Oliveira beat it by a tenth. Plenty of riders were on track for pole position, but without a tow down the long back straight, they were losing three or four tenths at the flag. Oliveira's then found a tow and set a new qualifying record of 1'58.062 and then beat it again with a 1'57.955.

With ten minutes remaining, everyone came in to the pits and reconfigured for one last stab at pole position. As the flag dropped, Enea Bastianini engineered a perfect storm to crush the qualifying record, and outright fastest lap record, with a 1'57.755.

Miguel Oliveira's earlier time was good enough to keep him on the front row and runaway championship leader Danny Kent was third quickest, one thousandth of a second off Oliveira.
