2020 Europe Moto3 FP3 Result: McPhee Tops Wet Session

Overnight rain left the Ricardo Tormo Circuit well drenched ahead of the third set of practice sessions and the lightweight class stood no chance of challenging the combined top 14 hierarchy ahead of qualifying. In the wet conditions, Niccolo Antonelli spent most time at the top of the timesheets but in the end it was John McPhee to stole the headlines by two tenths of a second. Celestino Vietti might have finished second but the Italian remained the fastest overall over the three practice sessions. Ai Ogura might be nowhere near Q2 places but the title contender finished third in FP3, after leading briefly, and might have the benefit of an extra 15 minutes of dry running in Q1.

Andrea Migno continued his solid run in tricky conditions with fourth position from compatriots Antonelli and Riccardo Rossi. Albert Arenas might have climbed up to seventh position but the championship leader will still get an outing in Q1 later on. Carlos Tatay, Tatsuki Suzuki and Raul Fernandez rounded out the top ten positions, with the likes of Tony Arbolino 11th, Jaume Masia 14th and Gabriel Rodrigo sitting out the session completely.
