2014 Indianapolis Moto3 FP3 Result: Vazquez Takes Charge

Efren Vazquez took advantage of terrific track conditions to set the fastest Moto3 time of the weekend and grab the top spot in the third free practice Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Vazquez's 1'41.103 put him a tenth of a second clear of a rapidly improving Romano Fenati (2nd). Isaac Vinales took third, another four-hundredths back. In each subsequent practice, Vazquez has steadily improved his place on the timesheet moving from fifth, to fourth to first.

Miguel Olivera took top Mahindra honors with fourth fastest followed by championship points leader Jack Miller. Moto3 riders, always tightly clustered on the timesheet, made no exception at Indianapolis with the top 19 rider separated by less than a second. Unexpectedly, that group does not include Alex Rins. The Honda rider, who sits fifth in the championship, set the 23rd fastest time.
