2017 Jerez Moto2 FP3 Result: Who Else But Marquez and Morbidelli

We’re only four races in but you wouldn’t really expect anything else but an EG 0,0 Marc VDS bike into top position in any one session of your choice, would you? And so it was, Alex Marquez hogging another headline in Jerez. It could have been an even better headline if he had another three thousandths of a second in hand to beat the lap record. We'll have to wait for qualifying practice.

He might have hit the floor at some point yesterday, unlike any other weekend this year, but Franco Morbidelli woke up more than eager to get back to the top of timesheets. And so he did, the Italian leading for most of the session before his teammate came charging. Still, he kept within a tenth of the younger Marquez while also showing consistent pace.

Mattia Pasini was third, once again within two tenths of his fellow Italian, with Simone Corsi fourth, a further two tenths down. Miguel Oliveira was the last man into the 1:42s, with Luca Marini sixth, over half a second down on the other famous sibling at the top.

Jorge Navarro, Dominique Aegerter and Pecco Bagnaia also seem to be sneaking their way up the timesheets at every available opportunity, while Tom Luthi is still having trouble around the Spanish track, finishing down in twelfth position, seven tenths down on Marquez.
