2019 Qatar Moto3 FP3 Result: Perez Takes Centre Stage

Another windy morning for the lightweight crowd and with not much payoff as far as qualifying was concerned. Much hotter conditions than FP2 predictably meant that the top 14 for Q2 was settled last night and there was not that much to learn for the race in these much different conditions, which left the minor laurels of headlining FP3 on the table.

Vicente Perez got plenty of airtime at the top of the timesheets, the Avintia rider settling in first position early on and never letting it go, although his top time was a full two seconds off Aron Canet’s best from Friday. Toni Arbolino came close to challenging, under a tenth off the leader, while Kaito Toba was two tenths off. Alonso Lopez and Romano Fenati rounded out the top five, with Jakub Kornfeil as the last man within half a second of the leader. Kazuki Masaki, Canet, Albert Arenas and Celestino Vietti completed the top ten, while another handful of riders led by Can Oncu ended the afternoon session within a second of the leader.

With an eye on qualifying, the fastest 14 men from FP2 have ensured safe passage into Q2 under the new qualifying format, the list topped by Friday session leaders Aron Canet and Romano Fenati and comprised by Niccolo Antonelli, Andrea Migno, Gabriel Rodrigo, Jakub Kornfeil, Lorenzo Dalla Porta, Toni Arbolino, Kazuki Masaki, Albert Arenas, Kaito Toba, Vicente Perez, Can Oncu and Dennis Foggia.
