2020 Emilia-Romagna Moto2 FP3 Result: Bastianini Takes Control

The intermediate class took full advantage of their final practice session and quickly challenged the hierarchy from Friday. Sam Lowes was most eager to put his name at the top of the timing screens, where it sat for a considerable amount of time, until title contender Enea Bastianini went faster and fastest for the final seven minutes of FP3. No one else could challenge the Italian’s lap record until the checkered flag, Lowes settling for second, a tenth and a half off.

The SKY Racing duo of Marco Bezzecchi and Luca Marini also came within two tenths of their leading compatriot, while Marcel Schrotter joined the top five late on. Nicolo Bulega, Aron Canet and Jorge Navarro were only three tenths off top spot, with Jake Dixon and Augusto Fernandez rounding out the top ten with times within half a second of Bastianini. Tetsuta Nagashima, Xavi Vierge and Tom Luthi secured Q2 tickets, with the final top 14 position going to Joe Roberts, who failed to improve on his top time from Friday but held onto a Q2 spot, to Lorenzo Baldassarri’s misfortune. The Italian will join compatriots Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Fabio Di Giannantonio in Q1, as well as the likes of Marcos Ramirez or Hector Garzo.
