2022 Silverstone Moto3 FP3 Result: Suzuki To The Fore

A sunny Silverstone set the scene for day two of track action after a long summer break and the usual Moto3 routine opened the show. John McPhee’s Friday benchmark sat quietly at the top of the combined timesheets until Tatsuki Suzuki’s final attack, the Japanese rider taking top spot at the chequered flag and inadvertently helping Deniz Öncü into second position. McPhee himself was not too keen to engage in a time attack and ended the morning in a lowly 22nd position but safety inside the top three overall. Meanwhile, Dani Holgado secured third in the session, with Andrea Migno making a late jump to fourth and Ayumu Sasaki rounding out the session’s top five.

Diogo Moreira led the rookie brigade from sixth, ahead of the significantly more experienced Dennis Foggia, who made a slow start on Saturday morning but recovered to claim seventh position. Stefano Nepa was one of the early improvers, the Italian up to eight, ahead of the Japanese duo of Kaito Toba and Ryusei Yamanaka, who completed the top 10 of the session.

Having spent most of the morning towards the sharp end, Izan Guevara slid down to 12th in the closing stages, having failed to improve his time from Friday, while teammate and title rival Sergio Garcia was yet to wake up from his setup nightmares, the championship leader unable to go quicker than 18th overall, almost a full second slower than Suzuki. The remaining Q2 tickets were handed to Lorenzo Fellon and Ivan Ortolá, with the likes of Xavier Artigas and home favourite Scott Ogden missing out by less than a hundredth of a second. While Artigas could not go any quicker than on Friday, Ogden poorly times his final exit and missed out on the shootout, both riders now stuck in Q1 with the likes of Riccardo Rossi, Garcia, Jaume Masia or Carlos Tatay.
