2021 Silverstone Moto3 FP3 Result: Fenati Showing Off

Another cold morning in Silverstone meant that riders were slow to get up to speed and challenge for Q2 positions. Times eventually started to rival FP2 ones in the final 15 minutes of the session and the final shootout for the top 14 got underway with five minutes remaining, when Romano Fenati, who didn’t even need to go out to secure a Q2 ticket, did so regardless and casually improved his own all-time lap record by over half a second. With rivals busy tripping each other up, only Ayumu Sasaki managed to finish the session within half a second of the leader, while Darryn Binder, Jeremy Alcoba and Dennis Foggia posted times within a second of Fenati.

Jaume Masia in sixth was little over a second behind the top man and two tenths ahead of John McPhee and Tatsuki Suzuki, who both saved their day in the final time attack. Andrea Migno and Deniz Öncü completed the top 10 of the session, with Stefano Nepa missing out by three thousandths of a second. The remaining tickets directly to Q2 were handed out to Niccolò Antonelli, Riccardo Rossi and Lorenzo Fellon, who were fast enough in FP2, despite not improving their times on Saturday morning.

The last lap shenanigans left championship leader Pedro Acosta out of Q2 for now, by one hundredth of a second and will have serious competition in Q1 from the likes of Gabriel Rodrigo, Izan Guevara and title rival Sergio Garcia, whose attempt to put in a flying lap on his own did not serve him well either.
