2022 Motegi Moto3 FP2 Result: Foggia Doesn’t Sink

Saturday morning in Japan started with a surprise, but rain was not it, the forecast finally catching up with the lightweight class and soaking the circuit ahead of the second set of practice sessions. The surprise came from Dennis Foggia, the Italian looking unusually comfortable in the tricky conditions and even ending the morning at the top of the timesheets. Mario Aji also thrived on the wet track and missed out on top spot by only eight hundredths of a second, however, the conditions were too poor to allow any changes to Friday’s hierarchy and the Indonesian rider will have to contend with Q1 later on. Andrea Migno joined the top three of the session, ahead of birthday boy Tatsuki Suzuki and late crasher John McPhee - off track excursions not all that unusual during the 40-minute session.

Early session leader Deniz Öncü eventually dropped to sixth, narrowly ahead of Ryusei Yamanaka, while Carlos Tatay in eighth position was another half a second behind the local favourite. Although Sergio Garcia in ninth spot ended the morning session in a much better position than teammate and rival Izan Guevara in 16th, Friday’s rankings showed the opposite and it’s Garcia who will have to join Q1 together with the likes of Xavier Artigas, Dani Holgado or Ivan Ortolá.
