2022 Mandalika Moto2 FP3 Result: Aldeguer Shines In Wet Conditions

Another wet drizzly morning in Indonesia made for a rather subdued final practice session for the intermediate class, with the spotlight firmly on Fermin Aldeguer. The Spaniard established a one second advantage early in the session and rivals struggled to bridge that gap throughout FP3, compatriot Augusto Fernandez coming closest ahead of FP2 leader Jake Dixon. Tony Arbolino dropped to fourth at the last minute, with Aron Canet joining the top five, followed by compatriots Jorge Navarro and Pedro Acosta. The Moto3 world champion looked pretty quick in both dry and wet conditions but will have to serve a long lap penalty in Sunday's race due to crashing under yellow flags on Friday afternoon. 

Barry Baltus in 8th place was two full seconds slower than the session leader and was joined by rookie Sean Dylan Kelly and Somkiat Chantra in the top 10, although the trio missed out on Q2 placements, unlike the seven men ahead. Although they didn’t feature heavily in FP3 due to a more cautious approach, the likes of Cameron Beaubier, Manuel Gonzalez, Romano Fenati, Sam Lowes, Celestino Vietti, Albert Arenas and Marcos Ramirez secured tickets straight to Q2, courtesy of their sunnier FP2 times.
