2021 Assen Moto2 FP3 Result: Raul Fernandez Resumes Control

In typical Moto2 fashion, riders were keen to attack the timesheets early on but could not quite touch Augusto Fernandez’s Friday benchmark until Raul Fernandez dethroned him with 25 minutes left of the session. Despite a small tumble at turn three soon after, the rookie rejoined the action and kept top spot to the end of the session. After the Sky Racing team tinkered a bit with his machine, Marco Bezzecchi made a late jump to second, two tenths off the leader and another tenth ahead of Jorge Navarro. Somkiat Chantra also bided his time to join the top four of the session, with a consistent Sam Lowes completing the top five.

Championship leader Remy Gardner in sixth was under four tenths of a second from the leader and very closely followed by Ai Ogura, the rookie joining the Q2 worthy positions in the closing stages of the session. Augusto Fernandez was eighth in the session and was the only rider not to improve his time from Friday, but that time was good enough for third on the combined timesheets. Celestino Vietti finally gets a taste of Q2, after following compatriot Bezzecchi around on a hot lap and helping himself to ninth place in FP3.

Fellow rookie Tony Arbolino completed the top 10, while the remaining top 14 positions were secured by Fabio Di Giannantonio, Lorenzo Dalla Porta, Marcel Schrotter and Tom Luthi. Home favourite Bo Bendsneyder missed by one hundredth of a second and was only half a second slower than the leader. He will be joined in Q1 by the likes of the Petronas duo of Xavi Vierge and Jake Dixon, FP2 leader Hector Garzo and a subdued Aron Canet.

2021 Assen MotoGP FP3 Result: Viñales Continues To Lead Yamaha Charge

Blue skies were back over Assen after the rainy adventure on Friday afternoon and the premier class found their rhythm in the dry before attacking the top 10 once more. Improvements came quick and the hierarchy frequently changed throughout the session but, as usual, it all came down to the final handful of minutes. Friday leader Maverick Viñales might not have been particularly chatty off track but did his talking on it, leading the way once more for most of FP3. He was only briefly demoted by teammate Fabio Quartararo, the Yamaha duo one step ahead of their rivals. Pol Espargaro was the only other rider whose top 10 position did not really seem at threat, the Spaniard still enjoying his time in the Netherlands.

Aleix Espargaro dropped in and out of the top 10 but a fantastic final lap placed him right behind his brother on the timesheets. Joan Mir completed the top five, followed by teammate Alex Rins, who was half a second off the lead. Takaaki Nakagami made some forays into the top 10 but a couple of cancelled lap times due to track limits infringements meant he had to wait until the final couple of minutes to rejoin in seventh place. Miguel Oliveira was the sole KTM in eighth, while Valentino Rossi makes another rare appearance directly in Q2 from ninth place.

The Ducatis looked vulnerable in the final couple of minutes of the session and while Jack Miller held onto the top 10 by the skin of his teeth, colleagues Pecco Bagnaia, Johann Zarco and Jorge Martin got pushed out by mere hundredths of a second. Zarco’s case was not helped by an early tumble at turn three and the Ducatis will join the likes of Marc Marquez in Q1. The creaky Repsol Honda man opted to rest a bit longer and only started his time attack in the final six minutes but after chasing a fast Oliveira and doing a bit of off-tracking, he ended the morning 15th, seven tenths off the lead.

2021 Assen Moto3 FP3 Result: Foggia Faster, Suzuki Still Fastest

After rain surprised the field on Friday afternoon, the lightweight class started Saturday on a dry track and with a mission to challenge the top 14 positions. Despite the improved conditions, improvements were slow on the combined timesheets and it meant that Tatsuki Suzuki remained the fastest rider overall with the time he set on Friday. However, it was Dennis Foggia who was fastest in the morning session, the Italian improving his top time early on and keeping his name at the top of FP3 throughout. While the habitual last minute stalking of rivals in pitlane and the ensuing outlap tango was not fully avoided, Romano Fenati was one of the few riders who skipped the shenanigans and rode on his own for the final time attack, getting rewarded with second in the session. Sergio Garcia also followed that example to climb into third, while John McPhee was one of the few riders who didn’t miss the cut for the final time attack and put in a final lap that promoted him to fourth.

Having dropped out of the top 14 on Friday, Deniz Öncü was particularly determined to change that and manged to do so in the final minute of the session, when he climbed to fifth. Teammates Elia Bartolini and Niccolò Antonelli performed well to join the top seven of the session, followed by Jeremy Alcoba and Kaito Toba. Gabriel Rodrigo rounded out the top 10 despite a crash on the final lap. Although Jaume Masia was 11th in the session, the Spaniard was the first to miss the cut for the combined top 14.

The likes of Pedro Acosta, Darryn Binder, Andrea Migno and Suzuki failed to improve their times from Friday but were fast enough on day one to remain in the combined top 14 places. With the exception of Migno, the rest of the foursome had a particularly challenging session, Suzuki and Binder taking a tumble at turn 7 early on, while Acosta was involved in a big crash at the final turn – a silly affair in a group riding at full speed and probably not realising they had already taken the checkered flag. Riccardo Rossi was also involved and walked away gingerly, hoping to be fit enough to give it another go in Q1.

2021 Assen Moto2 FP2 Result: Garzo Surprises Fernandez

As the forecast made clear from the beginning, the weather wasn’t going to give riders an easy weekend in Assen but rain poured down even quicker than expected, soaking the track by the time the intermediate class resumed action for the afternoon session. Given the conditions, there was no time to be found on the combined standings and the battle for the top 14 moves on to Saturday morning but there was still a wet FP2 to be claimed. The top of the timesheets saw quite a collection of names while riders got accustomed to the conditions, but in the end it was Hector Garzo who proved quickest by three hundredths of a second. Despite his recent injury, the Spaniard led the way from compatriot Augusto Fernandez, who remained the fastest man of the day courtesy of his FP1 time. After briefly putting his name at the top of the timesheets, Nicolò Bulega stayed in the top three, while early session leader Aron Canet was fourth and half a second off top spot.

Joe Roberts, Sam Lowes and Jake Dixon also enjoyed short stints at the top before taking positions five to seven, while Xavi Vierge was the final rider to post a time within a second of the leader. Marco Bezzecchi and Fabio Di Giannantonio completed the top 10, while the Red Bull KTM Ajo duo that usually steals the headlines had a low key afternoon. Remy Gardner ended the session in 18th place, with teammate Raul Fernandez in 23rd position. Jorge Navarro also did not feature heavily in the session, having suffered a technical issue early in the session, which limited his running to only six laps. With FP3 expected to be back to dry conditions, there should be another opportunity to change the Q2 line-up on Saturday morning.

2021 Assen MotoGP FP2 Result: Viñales Fastest, Marquez Crashes, No Change In Top 10

Maverick Viñales topped the second session of the day at Assen for the MotoGP class, adding the fastest time in the afternoon to his fastest time of the morning. Though a few riders improved their time in the first half of the session, rain - light at first, and then a proper downpour - ruined most riders' attempts to go faster, with the provisional top 10 remained unchanged from the morning.

In FP2 proper, Miguel Oliveira ended up in second, Fabio Quartararo was third, Marc Marquez was fourth, and Joan Mir was fifth quickest. But the biggest news of the session was the massive highside for Marc Marquez at Duikersloot, at the southernmost part of the circuit. The Repsol Honda rider had the rear of the bike come round on him, and was flung high into the air, coming down heavily. Marquez could get up and walk away, and ride back to the pits on the back of a marshal's machine. Marquez did not go back out in the rain. But he should be fit to ride again in the morning.

2021 Assen MotoGP FP1 Result: From Last To First - Viñales Quickest In Morning Session

FP1 saw a complete turnaround for Maverick Viñales. After finishing dead last in the Sachsenring, the Monster Energy Yamaha rider set the fastest time of the first session of practice in Assen. It was not all sweetness and light, however, Viñales nearly losing the front of his Yamaha M1 at Madijk and shaking his head and fist vigorously.

Viñales wasn't the only surprise at the top of the timesheets in FP1. Repsol Honda rider Pol Espargaro was also quick, crossing the line in second, a tenth behind the Yamaha. Viñales and Espargaro had a comfortable lead over Alex Rins, the Suzuki rider three tenths off the time of Espargaro.

Championship leader Fabio Quartararo ended the session in fourth, just ahead of Johann Zarco, who saved a preliminary spot in Q2 with a late lap to jump from seventeenth to fifth. Danilo Petrucci had something of a resurgence on the Tech3 KTM, ending as sixth fastest, ahead of Aleix Espargaro on the Aprilia, Takaaki Nakagami on the LCR Honda, and the winner at the Sachsenring, Marc Marquez, in ninth. Marquez was riding a brand new chassis for the first time in FP1. Aprilia's second rider, Lorenzo Savadori, rounded out the top ten, a strong showing by the Italian.
