2016 Qatar Moto3 FP3 Result: Quartararo Makes Late Lunge to Lead

Fabio Quartararo was the fastest man in the only session of free practice for the Moto3 class on Friday. The Frenchman put in a flying lap to top the timesheets right at the end of the session, deposing the previous leaders Brad Binder and Livio Loi. 

Binder took second ahead of Loi, the Red Bull Ajo KTM rider working together with his rookie teammate Bo Bendsneyder to post a solid time. Bendsneyder benefited from the collaboration as well, posting the eighth best time of FP3. With no teammate to help him, Loi had to do the gruntwork for himself, something he proved himself more than capable of doing by taking third, just behind Binder, without the help of a tow. 

Team Sky VR46 rookie Nicolo Bulega continued to impress, grabbing fourth in session, and ending ahead of his teammate Romano Fenati, while Enea Bastianini of Gresini found a burst of speed, making his way up to 6th.

Moto3 returns to the track on Saturday for qualifying.
