2019 Sachsenring Moto3 FP3 Result: Ramirez Guides Oncu To The Top

Sunshine made an early appearance on Saturday morning and times in the lightweight class came tumbling down, Marcos Ramirez taking down the lap record with five minutes left on the clock. Rivals fought on to snatch the achievement but orange sectors were not enough and the Spaniard got to keep the laurels to the checkered flag. The Leopard bikes had been doing their tag team thing and Can Oncu tagged along to the reluctant duo for a fast lap that brought him within seven hundredths of a second of Ramirez. Filip Salac impressively joined the top three, only two thousands of a second back.

Behind the tight top three, Alonso Lopez and Ayumu Sasaki were a more sensible two tenths back but the FP2 leader took a while to find his feet and improve on his Friday benchmark. Gabriel Rodrigo, Kaito Toba, Tatsuki Suzuki and Lorenzo Dalla Porta occupied places 6th to 9th, all four riders within half a second of the leader. Niccolo Antonelli completed the top ten, while Raul Fernandez was unable to improve on his FP1 top time before going town at turn 12 but luck was on his side and the Spaniard stayed 11th on the combined timings.

The final men to ensure direct Q2 passage were rookie Sergio Garcia, Romano Fenati and Albert Arenas – the trio only six tenths off the lead. Dennis Foggia was the first rider to miss the cut by only seven thousandths of a second and Q1 promises to be a feisty affair given the premium lineup which also includes Ai Ogura, Tony Arbolino, John McPhee, Jakub Kornfeil, Aron Canet, Andrea Migno, Jaume Masia and Celestino Vietti.
