2021 Le Mans Moto3 FP3 Result: Another Fernandez Goes Fast

After the changing conditions caused some headaches on day 1 at Le Mans, Saturday morning brought a fully wet track surface following overnight rain, which meant that the lightweight class stood no chance of changing the order in the combined standings. However, it was a chance for rookie Adrian Fernandez to shine, the Spaniard snatching top spot at the checkered flag by almost half a second from Yuki Kunii. Andrea Migno made a late jump into the top three, while John McPhee got demoted to fourth, while Niccolò Antonelli completed the top five.

Runaway championship leader Pedro Acosta added another small tumble to his collection from Friday but the rookie held top spot for much of the session, until the final few minutes, when he got demoted to sixth place. Teammate Jaume Masia was seventh, while also putting his name on the lengthy crash list, alongside the likes of Xavier Artigas, Sergio Garcia, Carlos Tatay or Andi Farid Izdihar. Kaito Toba dropped to eighth place after his fastest time got cancelled due to a yellow flag infringement, while FP2 leader Gabriel Rodrigo and Stefano Nepa rounded out the top ten once all sanctions were applied.
