2016 Assen Moto3 FP3 Result: Canet Blitzes Field Once Again

A rookie he may be, but Aron Canet showed once again that a new track is no reason to worry for him, going to the top of the table on his first flying lap, only needing three of those to rival his FP2 performance. It took a mock qualifying run in the final five minutes of the session to beat that time by a full second.

Niccolo Antonelli was there or thereabouts all session, finishing two tenths off the Spaniard. Pecco Bagnaia seemed to have lost his way overnight, spending most of FP3 outside the top twenty but recovered in the final minutes to make the jump to third, followed by fellow Italian Andrea Migno and an increasingly impressive Gabriel Rodrigo in fifth.

It looked like another session to forget for Fabio Quartararo, who started all the way down in fifteenth, but recovering nicely to move up to sixth after a quick stop in the garage and some quick adjustments.

Enea Bastianini, Romano Fenati, Nicolo Bulega and championship leader Brad Binder completed the top ten and were left with some pace to find before the impending qualifying session.
