2020 Teruel Moto3 FP3 Result: Arenas Leads Despite Penalty

With about a third of the lightweight class grid scheduled to miss the final 15 or 25 minutes of FP3 due to irresponsible riding last weekend, there was action throughout the session and a few tense waits along pitlane during the final shootout. Championship leader Albert Arenas was one of the men serving a penalty but the Spaniard claimed top spot with 16 minutes remaining and safely secured his Q2 spot. Also amongst the penalty line-up, Raul Fernandez climbed into second, eight hundredths of a second slower than his compatriot, while penalty-free Celestino Vietti also finished within a tenth of the lead.

Romano Fenati and Ai Ogura completed the top five, only a tenth or so off top spot and another tenth ahead of Ayumu Sasaki, early session leader Darryn Binder and Dennis Foggia. Tony Arbolino waited until the final possible moment to break into the combined top 14 and climbed into ninth, while Tatsuki Suzuki completed the top ten.

Deniz Oncu in 11th position was the last rider within half a second of the lead, while Jaume Masia was forced to miss the final 25 minutes of the session but his FP1 time kept him safely inside the combined top 14. That was also the case for Jeremy Alcoba, who had his own 15 minutes penalty to serve and despite finishing 28th in the session, he stayed inside the combined top 14 with his top time from Friday. The last man to sneak into the top 14 was John McPhee, the Scotsman starting his session with a crash at turn 8 and only breaking into Q2 positions on his final flying lap.
