2017 Brno Moto2 FP3 Result: No Pain No Gain For Marquez

Clear blue sky awaited the intermediate class, which was slightly affected by the red flag in MotoGP, but the Moto2 riders proved a bit more able to keep aboard their bikes for the full length of the session.

Alex Marquez even made time to see the doctor for some leftover pain from his pre-holiday crash before rejoining the action and going straight to the top of the timesheets. His benchmark time remained unchallenged for the remaining of the session, confirming the Czech track to be one of the Spaniard’s favourites.

Championship leader Franco Morbidelli’s new leathers boosted him into second position, less than a tenth down on his teammate and three hundredths of a second ahead of fellow Academy rider Pecco Bagnaia.

Their compatriot, Simone Corsi, was only two hundredths of a second behind, in fourth position, with Sandro Cortese a respectable fifth just after it was announced that his replacement in the Dynavolt Intact squad will be Xavi Vierge.

Tom Luthi in sixth place got as close as three tenths of a second of the leader but failed to improve after an early crash. Behind him, Mattia Pasini was also a faller in the session, the Italian crashing out in the final minutes, after going seventh on the timesheets.

The top ten was completed by Dominique Aegerter, Isaac Viñales and an improved Takaaki Nakagami. Miguel Oliveira just missed out on a top ten by four hundredths of a second, although the gap between the leader and Luca Marini in twelfth position was only half a second.

Marcel Schrotter did not take part in the session and has withdrawn from the race after still suffering from an injury previously acquired in a training session over the holiday.
