2020 Austria Moto3 FP3 Result: Vietti Fastest In The Wet

Saturday morning brought the first properly wet session of the season for the lightweight class and despite missing out on another chance at the top 14 ahead of qualifying, riders had plenty to do to get ready for a potentially wet race. Therefore, the soaking track saw action straight away and the fastest man through the damp patches was Celestino Vietti, the Italian nearly half a second faster than Ai Ogura. Raul Fernandez continues to show good speed regardless of the conditions, the Spaniard third and half a second off the leader.

Maximilian Kofler impressed in fourth but times were nowhere near those from Friday, so the local rider will need to take a trip through Q1. Andrea Migno completed the top five, ahead of Tatsuki Suzuki, Kaito Toba and early session leader Jaume Masia. Darryn Binder and Tony Arbolino rounded out the top ten, with the Italian still fastest over the three practice sessions. The likes of Gabriel Rodrigo, John McPhee and Albert Arenas were over a second down on Vietti but safely into Q2 based on their performance on Friday morning.
