2018 Silverstone Moto2 FP3 Result: Schrotter Dodges The Rain

In stark contrast to the first session of the day, clear patches of sky were clear to see by the time the intermediate class hit the track for the first time on Saturday. The mostly dry surface seemed to revive Marcel Schrotter, who faded in a rainy FP2 after an exceptional FP1 in the dry. The Dynavolt rider secured top spot in the session after a handful of laps and stayed fastest as spots of rain returned in the final 13 minutes of FP3.

Alex Marquez came within two tenths of the lead, with Jorge Navarro completing the top three close behind despite a late tumble in the changing conditions. Luca Marini was once again at the sharp end in fourth while Fabio Quartararo, fresh off his MotoGP announcement, climbed into fifth, three tenths down on the leader.

Sam Lowes and Pecco Bagnaia had half a second’s deficit on Schrotter, with Joan Mir close behind them in eighth position, the young Spaniard another to join the crash list at turn 12 halfway through the session. Iker Lecuona and Dominique Aegerter completed the top ten, seven tenths off and with the top 17 riders within a second of the leader. This included Remy Gardner in 11th, Miguel Oliveira in 12th and Mattia Pasini in 13th, while Lorenzo Baldassarri was one of the few who failed to improve their times overnight to finish only 19th.
