2021 Jerez Moto2 FP3 Result: Gardner Sets The Record Straight

The intermediate class enjoyed perfect conditions to challenge for Q2 spots in FP3 and pretty much everyone attacked the combined timesheets early on. However, the final time attack ended up deciding the hierarchy and it was championship leader Remy Gardner who set a new all time lap record in the final couple of minutes of the session. Both Fabio Di Giannantonio and Jorge Navarro enjoyed short stints at the top of the timing screens before being demoted by a small margin, while Joe Roberts in fourth was the last rider to post a 1:40 time and finished a tenth and a half away from top spot.

Raul Fernandez joined the top five, while Sam Lowes dropped to sixth after leading the way most of the session and skipping the late time attack. He was closely followed by rival Marco Bezzecchi, who posted an identical time to Marcel Schrotter. Augusto Fernandez and Jake Dixon rounded out the top ten, followed by Albert Arenas, who missed out some track time after an early crash at turn 11 but recovered to claim 11th position. The final Q2 places were secured by Xavi Vierge, Aron Canet and Ai Ogura, while the top 26 riders were covered by one second.
