FP3 action might have started an hour later than originally planned, but the increased temperatures were not enough to give much hope to those wanting to challenge the hierarchy for Q2. The final time attack did see Friday times being challenged but a yellow flag saw many final flying laps cancelled after the checkered flag. Andrea Migno did not leave it until the final shootout to make an impact on the timesheets and the Italian was rewarded with top spot in FP3, which was good enough for seventh on the combined standings. Jeremy Alcoba, Niccolo Antonelli and Deniz Oncu followed him on the timesheets and were the only other riders who improved their times sufficiently to sneak into direct Q2 positions.
Other men had to rely on their achievements from Friday afternoon, including Alonso Lopez, who joined the top five of the session, three tenths off top spot, followed by Raul Fernandez, whose FP2 time remained the fastest overall. Tatsuki Suzuki in seventh position was the final rider within half a second of Migno, the Japanese rider securing a Q2 ticket, unlike the man behind him, Filip Salac. Sergio Garcia was ninth after he also got his fastest time cancelled but his FP2 time held him securely inside combined top 14.
Gabriel Rodrigo had proved to be the fastest man of the morning at the checkered flag but was one of the many victims of the late yellow flag, demoting him to 10th in the session and 17th overall. John McPhee suffered a similar faith, the late laptime cancellation removing him from direct Q2 positions. Although not making much noise on Saturday morning, the remaining places in the combined top 14 went to Romano Fenati, Albert Arenas Celestino Vietti, Darryn Binder and Jaume Masia.
