2016 Misano Moto3 FP3 Result: Mir Steals Binder’s Thunder

Another sunny morning opened Saturday proceedings for the Moto3 class, which meant the usual suspects fought to have their name at the top of the hierarchy.

Brad Binder, Jorge Navarro and Enea Bastianini juggled the top three for much of the session, before the South-African pulled a Lorenzo to set several sublime laps that beat the best time of the weekend, a mix of mid and high 1:42s. Meanwhile, the Honda boys were playing around with new fairings and let Joan Mir steal their thunder with a fast lap only a tenth away from the circuit record. The Spaniard went straight to the top of the timesheets and stayed there until the flag.

Binder, Navarro and Bastianini were all pushed down one place, followed by an excellent performance from Lorenzo Dalla Porta in fifth, Andrea Locatelli in sixth and Aron Canet in seventh spot. This part of the top ten was clearly rookie territory, with Nicolo Bulega and Bo Bendsneyder right behind Canet.

The list of people struggling is once again led by the overlord of exceeded track limits, Fabio Quartararo, the Frenchman a long way down on his teammates in thirtieth position, almost two seconds slower than Mir.

Wild (to the point of naughty) card Stefano Manzi was turning heads again, but this time for nudging Albert Arenas into a gravel trap. He still finished sixteenth, behind Fabio Di Giannantonio.
