Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto3 class at Motorland Aragon:
The new schedule and improved tracked conditions allowed the intermediate class some quick improvements on the combined timesheets, which saw Sam Lowes top the standings early on. However, FP2 master Fabio Di Giannantonio was back on the offense for the final handful of minutes and went on to improve the all time lap record and reclaim top spot overall. Lowes did not get a final say in that as he slid out at turn 14, but he remained second fastest, seven hundredths of a second behind the leader.
One hour later than initially planned, the premier class hit the track for their first session of the day. It was a familiar sight at the top of the timesheets, with Franco Morbidelli placing yet another Yamaha in the lead for the final handful of minutes, nearly half a second faster than his rivals. However, the challengers were led by the Honda of Cal Crutchlow, who made a late jump into second position, ahead of Pol Espargaro.
FP3 action might have started an hour later than originally planned, but the increased temperatures were not enough to give much hope to those wanting to challenge the hierarchy for Q2. The final time attack did see Friday times being challenged but a yellow flag saw many final flying laps cancelled after the checkered flag. Andrea Migno did not leave it until the final shootout to make an impact on the timesheets and the Italian was rewarded with top spot in FP3, which was good enough for seventh on the combined standings.
A much sunnier Aragon awaited the intermediate class for their second practice session and it greatly helped their pursuit of provisional top 14 positions. The final time attack still saw a handful of crashes but there were no such worries for the fastest man of the day, Fabio Di Giannantonio grabbing the lead in the closing stages by half a tenth from Marco Bezzecchi. Sam Lowes held top spot for much of the proceedings but a late crash at turn seven dropped him to third on the timesheets.
A bit of sunshine over Motorland Aragon managed to heat up the surface to a generous (by comparison to FP1) 20 degrees of temperature and this came with inevitably quick improvements over this morning’s benchmark. Yamaha were quick to reclaim the top positions on the timing screens, with Maverick Vinales once again the quickest of the lot and the only rider in the 1:47s. Fabio Quartararo followed, two tenths behind, with teammate Franco Morbidelli as the final rider within half a second of the leader.
