2021 Portimao Moto3 FP3 Result: Migno Jumps Ahead

After rain and damp patches affected both of their practice sessions on Friday, the lightweight class had a lot of work to do in FP3, aided by clear blue skies this time around. Riders were quick to challenge the established top 14 hierarchy from FP2 but as usual, it all came down to the time attack in the final handful of minutes, when they surprisingly gave themselves a generous two flying laps to settle Q2 positions. After Niccolo Antonelli led the way throughout the session, it was compatriot Andrea Migno who eventually got the spoils, going from 12th to first on his final lap. That demoted Gabriel Rodrigo to second by five hundredths of a second, while teammates Jaume Masia and Pedro Acosta rode together to third and fourth positions.

Darryn Binder in fifth place was only a tenth and a half slower than the leader. Jeremy Alcoba finished the morning sixth and joins Q2, although a pitlane start awaits the Spaniard after his squabble with John McPhee at Losail. Dennis Foggia found some speed to climb up to seventh position, while early leader Antonelli drops to eighth place. Tatsuki Suzuki managed to keep ninth spot despite a late tumble at turn 8, while Sergio Garcia rounded out the top ten.

The remaining top 14 positions were secured by rookie Xavier Artigas, Deniz Oncu, John McPhee and Filip Salac. Given his pitlane start penalty, the Scotsman did the most running and kept us entertained throughout the lull before the time attack, while Salac was the beneficiary of two cancelled laptimes for Izan Guevara and Carlos Tatay due to yellow flag infringements, which promoted him to 14th position.
