2017 Sepang Moto3 FP3: Martin, Weather Both Heat Up

Jorge Martin took advantage of a rapidly drying track to take the top time in FP3 Saturday at the Sepang circuit Sunday as rider set their fastest times of the weekend. Martin's 2'15.606 put him four-tenths of a second ahead of the number two finisher Juanfran Guevara.  Newly crowned World Champion Joan Mir seized third as the day began heating up. 

Jules Danilo (4th) just pipped Romano Fenati (5th) who led FP3 before the end-of session, dry-track shootout. Hometown favorite Adam Norrodin continued a strong weekdend with sixth closely tracked by Enea Bastianini (7th). Aron Canet lost his wet-track pace from Friday to settled into eighth. Gabriel Rodrigo (9th) and John McPhee rounded out the top 10.
