2018 Argentina Moto3 FP3: Di Giannantonio Rules in the Wet

Honda's Fabio Di Giannantonio took advantage of a wet track to grab the top spot in FP3 as rain slowed riders the Termas De Rio Hondo circuit  Saturday in Argentina. Di Giannantonio's 2'00.315 was ten seconds off Enea Bastianini's top FP2 lap. Bastianini, however, has found speed in the wet or dry claiming the second-fastest time in the third Moto3 practice.

Top KTM rider Marco Bezzecchi continued his improving form with a third-best time, three-tenths from the top spot. Tatsuki Suzuki, 12th in FP2, leapt into fourth as the final rider to drop into the 2'00s, just in front of Aron Canet. 

Canet overcame controversial crash with Kazakh rider Makar Yurchenko during Friday's FP1 to grab the fifth spot. (Canet avoided a penalty from race direction.) KTM pair Gabriel Rodrigo (6th) and Andrea Migno (7th) finished just in front of Qatar race-winner Jorge Martin.
