2019 Austria Moto3 FP3 Result: Arbolino Snatches A Record

It turns out that there was no reason to fear Saturday morning weather because the lightweight class was greeted by beautiful blue sky and a soft spread of rubber courtesy of MotoE. This meant that times were quick to come down, to the point they were threatening the lap record, and the man who eventually scribbled his name next to the new record was Tony Arbolino. The young Italian finished his morning almost three tenths of a second ahead of the opposition, Jaume Masia second best and still under the old lap record.

John McPhee featured at the top of the standings until the final battle for Q2 places ensued for the final five minutes and had to eventually make do with third place. Lorenzo Dalla Porta made some progress up the timesheets to finish fourth, with Marcos Ramirez saving his Q2 position with a top five. Niccolo Antonelli had a good morning in sixth spot, ahead of consistent rookies Ai Ogura and Celestino Vietti.

Kaito Toba and Aron Canet rounded out the combined top ten and secured Q2 spots, as did Tatsuki Susuki – one of the only riders not to have improved his best time from Friday. Makar Yurchenko, Ayumu Sasaki and Raul Fernandez were the final men to skip the first qualifying session. The likes of FP1 leader Jakub Kornfeil, Dennis Foggia, Darryn Binder and Romano Fenati will have to battle through Q1.
