2021 Emilia-Romagna Moto3 FP3 Result: Artigas Headlines Misty Morning

The track was still wet on Saturday morning and with added mist, but that didn’t stop improvements on the timesheets quite early in the session, with Alberto Surra quickly demoting his teammate from the lead of the combined standings. Even though the rain and fog intensified towards the end of the session, riders continued their pursuit of the top 14 and Xavier Artigas picked up top spot on the final flying lap, three tenths of a second quicker than Yuki Kunii. Surra dropped to third, with Filip Salac and Ayumu Sasaki joining them in the top five.

After an underwhelming Friday, Dennis Foggia found some speed in wet conditions to make a late jump into 6th position, ahead of rookie Adrian Fernandez and title rival Pedro Acosta. Stefano Nepa and Darryn Binder rounded out the top 10, eight tenths off top spot. The final places directly into Q2 went to Lorenzo Fellon, Izan Guevara, Andi Farid Izdihar and impressive replacement rider Daniel Holgado, leaving the likes of Jaume Masia and Andrea Migno out of contention, the Italian failing to improve on his Friday benchmark and was not helped by a late crash.

Lower down the timesheets, Tatsuki Suzuki finished 23rd after being forced back into the pits for the final three minutes by a mechanical issue and John McPhee was back in action after sitting out Friday, but still finished ahead of Romano Fenati, in 26th position.
