2019 Misano Moto2 FP3 Result: Marquez Fastest Despite Tumble

The intermediate class made the best of their final practice session but maybe they were a touch too eager, FP3 ending with more of a crash fest than a time attack. The inconsistent grip caught quite a few of the riders out, Alex Marquez claiming top spot for the final ten minutes and promptly sliding out at turn one, bringing out fire extinguishers. The championship leader had a somewhat tense wait in his garage to see who could improve his time but challengers were limited. Fabio Di Giannantonio came closest but couldn’t keep the red sectors going all the way through the lap, the rookie settling for second by only two hundredths of a second.

Tetsuta Nagashima’s excellent weekend continues with a third position ahead of early session leader Remy Gardner. Augusto Fernandez recovered from an early tumble at turn 14 to join the top five, narrowly ahead of Sam Lowes. The Italian duo of Andrea Locatelli and Nicolo Bulega claimed positions seven and eight, with Darryin Binder and Enea Bastianini rounding out the top ten.

Jorge Navarro and Tom Luthi also secured Q2 spots, although the Swiss rider ended his session in the gravel at turn five. Lorenzo Baldassarri was not a significant feature in FP3, finishing 18th, but his best time from Friday ensured his passage to Q2. The final top 14 spot on combined standings went to Xavi Vierge, with the unlucky Q1 list including the likes of Iker Lecuona, Luca Marini and Marcel Schrotter.
