The final practice session for the intermediate class did not seem like it would make a big impact on the combined timesheets for qualifying, given the conditions, but a few riders did manage to upset the hierarchy in a final time attack. Rookie Aron Canet was the first of those men and he topped FP3 despite being quite a way off Joe Roberts’ best time from Friday. Fabio Di Giannantonio in second position brought another Speed Up to the forefront and into direct Q2 spots, with Enea Bastianini climbing into third in the session and eighth overall.
After taking flight on Friday, Remy Gardner followed through with a more harmless slide at turn 15 but did manage to improve his time and sneak back into the combined top 14, while fourth in the session. Tetsuta Nagashima, Jorge Navarro and Augusto Fernandez also finished within three tenths of a second of Canet but Navarro was the unlucky one out of the trio, getting pushed out of the coveted top 14 positions and dumped in Q1.
With 20 riders covered by one second in the final practice session, several of the usual suspects missed out on top positions but safely secured a place in Q2 based on their FP2 times. This included Joe Roberts, who topped the combined timesheets despite being 15th in FP3, as well as Marco Bezzecchi, Luca Marini, Xavi Vierge, Bo Bendsneyder, Nicolo Bulega, Jorge Martin and Tom Luthi.
One name missing from the action was Sam Lowes, who was declared unfit for the rest of the weekend due to a right shoulder injury.
