The track finally got busy for the final 15 minutes of the session, when Fabio Quartararo went fastest on a drying track, but only seven thousandths of a second ahead of Alex Rins.

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.
