2020 Aragon Moto2 FP3 Result: Di Giannantonio Strikes Back

The new schedule and improved tracked conditions allowed the intermediate class some quick improvements on the combined timesheets, which saw Sam Lowes top the standings early on. However, FP2 master Fabio Di Giannantonio was back on the offense for the final handful of minutes and went on to improve the all time lap record and reclaim top spot overall. Lowes did not get a final say in that as he slid out at turn 14, but he remained second fastest, seven hundredths of a second behind the leader.

Remy Gardner in third was the only other rider within half a second of Di Giannantonio, while Augusto Fernandez and Joe Roberts completed the top five. Compatriots Jorge Navarro and Marcos Ramirez finished close behind, with Jake Dixon not too far back in eighth position. Marco Bezzecchi was one of the few riders who failed to go any faster than Friday, but he was fast enough for ninth in the session and a secure place in Q2.

Enea Bastianini rounded out the top ten of the session, while the final tickets to Q2 went to Bo Bendsneyder, Luca Marini, Hector Garzo and Edgar Pons. The Gresini rider was only 23rd in the session after an early tumble, but his FP2 time saved the day for him. The big losers of FP3 were teammates Marcel Schrotter and Tom Luthi, who will be joined by Jorge Martin in Q1, after a cancelled lap time demoted the Spaniard to 19th on the combined standings.
