2022 Austin Moto3 FP3 Result: Foggia Stays Fastest

The final practice session for the lightweight class started in pretty dramatic fashion, a red flag waving only 12 minutes into the session after an odd collision sent Alberto Surra into the barriers alongside the back straight. The Italian was conscious but needed medical assistance to return to the paddock and the session soon resumed for the rest of the field. Although the wind had calmed down a bit, riders did not manage to threaten the benchmark set on Friday afternoon by Dennis Foggia and there were very few changes to the combined top 14 places. The Italian led the way in FP3 as well, with a four tenths advantage over Jaume Masia, the Spaniard one of the few riders who managed to go quicker than Friday. Andrea Migno stayed in the top three after leading he way early in the session, while Izan Guevara made significant progress to go fourth in the session and fifth overall.

Deniz Öncü secured fifth in FP3, ahead of Carlos Tatay and Sergio Garcia, with rookie Diogo Moreira also joining the Q2 line-up on his final flying lap. Fellow rookie Daniel Holgado ended the session exactly one second off top spot, while Joel Kelso rounded out the top 10 and secured the final Q2 ticket in the overall hierarchy. Ayumu Sasaki, Kaito Toba, Tatsuki Suzuki and Riccardo Rossi didn’t make much noise throughout the session, with the exception of early tumbles for the latter two, but all got safely through to Q2. Matteo Bertelle and Surra got pushed out of contention in the closing minutes of the session, while Xavier Artigas could not improve on 18th overall after a light squabble with his teammate.
