Maverick Vinales, quickest from the prior practice, continued his form for the third free practice with the top time of the session at 1'48.060.

Taking the second place times was an increasingly quick Luis Salom who was followed by a surprising third-best time by Malaysian rider Zulfahmi Khairuddin.
