2022 Le Mans Moto3 FP3 Result: Foggia vs Guevara Repeat

A still sunny Le Mans welcomed lightweight class riders to the final practice push and after showing off their race pace, the stars of Friday were back to challenge for top spot once more. Dennis Foggia and Izan Guevara traded the lead in the final few minutes of FP3 and although the Italian came out on top on his last FP3 lap, it was the benchmark he set on Friday that kept him at the top of the combined standings. Guevara ended the morning six hundredths of a second behind Foggia and in the middle of a Leopard Racing sandwich, with Tatsuki Suzuki dropping to third after leading the way early in the session.

Carlos Tatay was another of the names making a brief appearance at the top before being pushed down to fourth, similarly to Jaume Masia in fifth. Xavier Artigas was one of the first riders to challenge the top 14 from Friday and secured his Q2 place from sixth position, a minuscule margin keeping him ahead of Andrea Migno, Daniel Holgado and Ryusei Yamanaka. Having been left out of the top 14 at the end of an eventful Friday, Sergio Garcia was not in a rush to remedy that and the championship leader only joined the Q2 line-up in the final three minutes of the session, completing the top 10 of FP3.

The final Q2 tickets were grabbed by Ayumu Sasaki, returning teammate John McPhee and rookies Joel Kelso and Diogo Moreira, leaving the likes of Ivan Ortolá and Deniz Öncü to deal with Q1. Both riders had their sessions affected by crashes, the Spaniard bookending his session with tumbles, while the Turk paid a visit to the medial centre after a painful looking high side outside the final corner.
