2022 Assen Moto2 FP3 Result: A Familiar Fernandez Fronts The Field

The intermediate class enjoyed their final practice session under some welcome sunshine at Assen and Augusto Fernandez enjoyed the conditions the most, the Spaniard topping the morning session throughout, despite being quite a distance away from the lap record. Albert Arenas was another consistent presence towards the top of the timing screens, the former Moto3 world champion second throughout the session, six hundredths of a second off the lead. Bo Bendsneyder enjoyed some time in the limelight on his home playground and climbed up to third, only a tenth off top spot.

Ai Ogura also returned to the business end of proceedings, the Japanese rider fourth at the end of practice, with Tony Arbolino rounding out the top five. Jake Dixon made some late progress to claim sixth position ahead of Joe Roberts, while Pedro Acosta’s absence through injury allowed Filip Salac to lead the rookie brigade from eighth place, despite a late tumble at the final chicane. An invigorated Marcel Schrotter continued his progress, climbing as high as second but seeing his top time cancelled for a track limits infringement and getting demoted back to ninth, with new recruit Alonso Lopez closing the top 10.

Celestino Vietti lingering outside of the top 10 is becoming an oddly familiar sight, although the championship leader did secure a Q2 position this time, with 11th place on the combined timesheets. Sam Lowes came next, the British rider losing some ground late in the session, after a tumble at the final chicane with three minutes left of the session. Somkiat Chantra and Cameron Beaubier claimed the remaining two tickets into Q2, leaving the likes of Jorge Navarro and Fermín Aldeguer out in the cold of Q1. A notable absence was that of Aron Canet, who only did three laps – but three laps too many after struggling with nose bleeds throughout the weekend – the Spaniard finally admitting defeat and withdrawing from the rest of the weekend’s action.
