2017 Misano Moto3 FP3 Result: Canet Back In Charge

The lightweight class finally got its sunny morning after the rain ridden Friday one, although the extra confidence in slightly windy conditions saw a handful of harmless crashes from the likes of John McPhee, Andrea Migno or Juanfran Guevara.

Given the early conditions, riders struggled to improve on their Friday times and got nowhere near last year’s benchmark. All that changed in the final minute, when Aron Canet posted the best lap of the weekend. The Spaniard was over three tenths faster than teammate Enea Bastianini, whose late progress on new rubber improved his position significantly.

Friday leader Fabio di Giannantonio also made a late move to deprive the world championship leader of third position, a further three hundredths of a second down on the EG 0,0 duo. Joan Mir opted to start his day on used tyres, which meant lingering just outside the top ten in the early part of FP3, before quickly jumping up into the lead by his eighth lap – it didn’t prove enough to keep the lead at the flag but good enough for fourth spot.

The final man who broke into the 1:42 was Philipp Oettl, the German rider nearly six tenths slower than Canet in front. Behind him, positions seven to ten were split by mere hundredths or thousandths of a second, led by Marcos Ramirez in sixth spot.

Ayumu Sasaki also improved significantly to end the morning seventh, once Romano Fenati had his fastest time cancelled due to track limits infringements. The Italian gave his new helmet design some airtime by leading the early part of the session but was pushed back to eighth as rivals made late progress. Gabriel Rodrigo and Livio Loi completed the top ten, seven tenths off the leader.

The Sky Racing duo found some steady progress through the weekend, the two Italians getting close to the top ten before losing some ground towards the end of practice: Nicolo Bulega down in twelfth, almost a second slower than the leader and failing to improve in the final run, while Andrea Migno's early fall and cancelled lap times left his down in sixteen.

Jorge Martin missed a full session on Friday while sparing his heel some trouble and, although it did not look like a big loss on Friday afternoon, the Spaniard was only fifteenth on Saturday morning. Niccolo Antonelli’s form seemed to be on the rise with a top ten presence before a now habitual late crash dropped him down to seventeenth.
