2020 Barcelona Moto3 FP1 Result: Fernandez Fastest Once More

A cool breezy Montmelo welcomed the lightweight class to a familiar playground and riders were quick to get up to speed. Tony Arbolino spent most of the session at the top of the timesheets, until Raul Fernandez stole the limelight for the final five minutes. The Spaniard dropped into the 1:48s and built a considerable gap at the front, which was eventually reduced to a smidgen under four tenths of a second by most recent victor Romano Fenati. Arbolino settled for third, as the final rider within half a second of the leader.

More of the usual contenders, Jaume Masia and John McPhee, completed the top five, with championship leader Albert Arenas in sixth, six tenths off the lead. Niccolo Antonelli, Kaito Toba, Gabriel Rodrigo and Filip Salac occupied the remaining top ten positions, while Darryn Binder, Andrwa Migno, Alonso Lopez and Jeremy Alcoba are provisionally within Q2 positions. One of last week’s fastest men, Celestino Vietti, had a quiet morning down in 23rd position, while title contender Ai Ogura was only 25th.
