2022 Mugello Moto2 FP3 Result: Canet Comes To The Fore

Not unusually for the intermediate class, Friday’s benchmark was quick to fall at the start of FP3 and top spot changed hands quite a bit towards the end of the session. Helped by some late yellow flags, Aron Canet took control of FP3 for the final two minutes and kept it to the chequered flag, with a minor six hundredths of a second advantage over the KTM Ajo duo of Pedro Acosta and Augusto Fernandez, who also took turns at the front. Sam Lowes spent the most time in prime position before dropping to fourth in the closing stages, with an impressive Lorenzo Dalla Porta making the top five on home soil.

Barry Baltus’ sixth place was equally impressive, the Belgian only a tenth of a second off top spot and ahead of championship leader Celestino Vietti. The Italian had an eventful session, starting with a big save and ending with a fine recovery to seventh place, only a tenth and a half off the lead. Bo Bendsneyder, Jake Dixon and Albert Arenas rounded out the top 10 positions, the British rider failing to improve on the benchmark he set on Friday.

The final tickets straight to Q2 were handed to Ai Ogura, who briefly led but was demoted to 11th by a yellow flag infringement, Cameron Beaubier, Jorge Navarro and Joe Roberts. With a top 14 covered by a mere three tenths of a second, every little mistake got punished and Tony Arbolino definitely felt that when he took a tumble at turn one, while threatening the top positions. That left the Italian in 15th place and due to meet the likes of Marcel Schrotter, Mattia Pasini, Somkiat Chantra, Alonso Lopez and Fermín Aldeguer a little later in Q1.
