2021 Le Mans Moto2 FP3 Result: Fernandez Fastest On Drying Track

After overnight rain and a few drops throughout the MotoGP session, the track started drying as the intermediate class took their turn, which meant there was not much action until the conditions were good enough for slick tyres. Times got quicker and quicker in the final third of the session, but ultimately not quick enough to challenge the combined hierarchy from FP2. Rookie extraordinaire Raul Fernandez took top spot at the checkered flag by going over half a second quicker than compatriots Jorge Navarro and Augusto Fernandez.

Fellow rookie Tony Arbolino led the session briefly, before dropping to forth, with Aron Canet joining the top five. Jake Dixon finished ahead of rivals Sam Lowes and Marco Bezzecchi, who were the last riders within a second of the leader. Ai Ogura and Joe Roberts rounded out the top ten, while Fabio Di Giannantonio missed out by seven hundredths of a second, in a pretty chaotic final few minutes. Cameron Beaubier was the fastest man in the short outing in wet conditions, before dropping down to 13th place.
