2022 Austria Moto3 FP3 Result: Öncü Leads With Sasaki As Main Threat

Rain kept away for the final practice session in the lightweight class, but riders were in little rush to improve on Friday’s benchmark until the final handful of minutes of FP3 when Deniz Öncü picked up top spot. Eager to compensate for his pending long lap penalty, Ayumu Sasaki was flying in practice and threatened to snatch the spotlight, had it not been for a track limits infringement on his final flying lap. The Japanese rider settled for second, only two hundredths of a second behind the leader.

After a more cautious start on Friday, the Aspar boys picked up the pace in the final third of FP3 to climb inside the top 10, with Izan Guevara in third and Sergio Garcia in fifth, sandwiching title rival Dennis Foggia. Diogo Moreira once more led the rookie brigade from sixth position, ahead of veteran John McPhee – the two separated by only three thousandths of a second. Stefano Nepa, Dani Holgado and Kaito Toba rounded out a top 10 covered by six tenths of a second, while Jaume Masia kept 11th position despite a late tumble at the brand new chicane.

Riccardo Rossi, David Muñoz and Scott Ogden secured the remaining Q2 tickets, demoting the likes of Tatsuki Suzuki and Ivan Ortola. The Japanese rider ended the morning with a light crash at turn three and although he was able to rejoin the action, could not improve and will be joining Q1 alongside a pretty anonymous Andrea Migno.
