2017 Le Mans Moto2 FP3 Result: Bagnaia and Morbidelli Fly The Academy Flag

The intermediate class was finally graced with a fully dry session, with the occasional damp patch seriously testing the riders’ attention – to more or less success, with several crashes and plenty of replay-worthy moments.

Franco Morbidelli was back to his usual antics, which meant taking the lead and letting everyone else try and catch up. Pecco Bagnaia accepted that challenge and he proved to be just as fast in the dry as he was in the wet around Le Mans, the Italian topping the session in his final few laps. Morbidelli dropped less than a tenth behind his VR46 Academy colleague to secure second position.

That also meant that besides Danilo Petrucci going like a rocket through the turn two gravel trap, there was little action in the first half of the session, Alvaro Bautista getting quite a bit of airtime as the only rider going around as the track was drying.
