2012 Catalunya Moto3 FP3 Result: Vinales Takes Command

Maverick Vinales led the final session of free practice for the Moto3 class at Barcelona, taking a massive 0.7 second lead with a fast final lap. The Spaniard had been at or close to the top for much of FP3, but put some serious space between himself and 2nd place man Zulfahmi Khairuddin with that last lap. Khairuddin leads the trio of Ajo KTMs, the Air Asia-backed Malaysian leading the Red Bull riders Danny Kent and Sandro Cortese. Cortese suffered a heavy fall, but appears to have come away relatively unhurt, only reporting a painful hand.
