2016 Argentina Moto2 FP3 Result: Folger Leads A Tight Pack

In a tight, see-saw Moto2 third practice that saw the top 20 riders within one second of the best time, Jonas Folger emerged on top with a 1'43.594, enough to put him one-tenth clear at the Termas de Rio Honda circuit Saturday. Alex Rins climbed into second, just in front of Sandro Cortese (3rd). Johan Zarco, who led much of the session, slipped to fourth.

Simone Corsi managed to grab fifth from an increasingly quick Dominique Aegerter (6th). Sam Lowes improved on his FP2 times but not as much as some of the others to slip to seventh. Takaaki Nakagami, who held a top-five slot early in the session, held on for eighth, just in front of Franco Morbidelli and Qatar race winner Thomas Luthi (10th).
