2022 Mandalika Moto3 FP3 Result: Migno Sails Into Top Spot

Although a quick glance at the circuit immediately confirmed there would not be another shoot-out for the top 14 on Saturday morning, the soaking wet track didn’t make it any less stressful for lightweight class riders. Thankfully not many got to experience the emerging sea in the gravel trap at turn 5 and some even showed off their skills in the wet, in particular the Rivacold Snipers duo. Andrea Migno was fast and consistent throughout the session and reclaiming top spot at the chequered flag by seven tenths of a second. Teammate Alberto Surra followed up on top spot in wet FP1 with a solid second place in an even wetter FP3, although the tricky conditions didn’t leave room for Q2 aspirations and the young Italian remained only 18th on the combined standings. Tatsuki Suzuki also seemed to thrive in the wet conditions, dropping from first to third in the closing stages, while Carlos Tatay in fourth was the final rider to post a time within a second of the leader – only the Spaniard securing a Q2 ticket.

Spectators who got up early on Saturday morning got even more reason to cheer as local favourite Mario Aji made a late jump into fifth place, ahead of the Spanish duo of Xavier Artigas and Sergio Garcia, all three featuring in the upcoming Q1 session through. Deniz Öncü gets to rest until Q2, unlike the rest of the session's top 10, comprised by Ryusei Yamanaka and rookie Daniel Holgado.

Despite some early questions about his pace in wet conditions, Dennis Foggia picked up some speed to climb into 11th and was already guaranteed a spot in Q2, together with the likes of Jaume Masia, Ayumu Sasaki, Matteo Bertelle, Ivan Ortola, Elia Bartolini, Adrian Fernandez, Riccardo Rossi and Diogo Moreira, who took it easy in FP3 but were in the top 14 when it mattered on Friday afternoon.
