2019 Aragon Moto2 FP3 Result: Fernandez Fast In All Conditions

If the weather did not encourage Moto3 and MotoGP riders to make a final push for Q2, the intermediate class got the best of the track conditions, with a fully dry line inviting them to do battle ahead of qualifying. The battle still had to wait until the final five minutes, the session taking its time to come to life but when it did, it brought red sectors all around. Rain or shine, Augusto Fernandez continues to be the fastest man on track, this time half a second ahead of Jorge Navarro.

Things were a bit closer behind the Speed Up rider, Sam Lowes back in the top three, narrowly ahead of a perhaps surprising performance from Jorge Martin. Xavi Vierge joined the top five on home soil, with Tetsuta Nagashima and Alex Marquez also safely into Q2 positions. Remy Gardner, Brad Binder and Tom Luthi rounded out the top ten.

Luca Marini was one of the few men who could not improve on their Friday times but despite 11th position in FP3, the Italian stays second on combined standings. Lorenzo Baldassarri, Nicolo Bulega and Iker Lecuona were part of the same gang, not particularly rapid in FP3 but saving their Q2 presence based on FP2 times. Less fortunate was Fabio Di Giannantonio, the rookie missing out on a top 14 position by eight hundredths of a second. The Italian will have familiar company in Q1 from the likes of Andrea Locatelli and Enea Bastianini, both riders complicating their sessions with crashes.
