2020 Qatar Moto3 FP3 Result: Fernandez Kicks Off Day 2

Day 2 of the season got underway in the heat of Losail but FP3 did not feel like the best use of track time for the lightweight class, given how much slower the pace was compared to FP2. Riders stood little chance to get a Q2 worthy time but that didn’t stop them from dawdling on track looking for a slipstream. Raul Fernandez had no issues securing a ticket to Q2, as the Spaniard topped both the session and the combined standings with his Friday time.

Dennis Foggia put his name towards the top end of the timesheets by going second in the session, a quarter of a second slower than Fernandez, but made no impact on the combined timesheets. Tatsuki Suzuki was in the same boat, fast enough for third but mistakes made on Friday dropped him into Q1. Ryusei Yamanaka and Filip Salac completed the top 5 of the session, despite a small fall for the Snipers rider, while Ai Ogura and Tony Arbolino also finished within half a second of the leader. However, only the last two riders had secured a Q2 position the day before.

Albert Arenas was eighth in the session but stuck in Q1, while Andrea Migno and Jaume Masia rounded out the top ten and will be heading to Q2. The last riders joining them there are rookies Deniz Oncu, Carlos Tatay and Yuki Kunii, as well as some of the usual suspects including Darryn Binder, Romano Fenati, Kaito Toba, Sergio Garcia, Celestino Vietti and John McPhee.
