The final practice session for the premier class started on a cold but drying track and after a short outing on wet rubber, slicks were finally unwrapped from their blankets, in the hope of getting a better picture for a presumably dry Sunday race.
Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto3 class at Emilia-Romagna:
The significantly wet conditions were not conducive to improvements on the combined standings for the intermediate class throughout FP3, with Friday’s times ending up deciding the line-up for Q2, meaning that despite Tony Arbolino topping FP3, he will join the cast for Q1 later today. The rookie robbed compatriot Marco Bezzecchi on his final flying lap and by only three thousandths of a second, the SKY Racing rider also joining him in the first qualifying session.
The premier class enjoyed another wet misty start in Misano but there was time to be found despite the sketchy conditions, as demonstrated by Jack Miller improving his own FP2 benchmark only 15 minutes into the session. That was only the beginning of a tense FP3, at the end of which Johann Zarco claimed the lead of the session by 8 hundredths of a second from teammate Jorge Martin, with Ducati colleague Miller dropping to third.
The track was still wet on Saturday morning and with added mist, but that didn’t stop improvements on the timesheets quite early in the session, with Alberto Surra quickly demoting his teammate from the lead of the combined standings. Even though the rain and fog intensified towards the end of the session, riders continued their pursuit of the top 14 and Xavier Artigas picked up top spot on the final flying lap, three tenths of a second quicker than Yuki Kunii. Surra dropped to third, with Filip Salac and Ayumu Sasaki joining them in the top five.
The reasonably sunny conditions changed track conditions throughout the session to allow a swap to slicks, but the surface was still pretty damp and tricky to navigate for the intermediate class. It was all change in the final couple for flying laps, when Augusto Fernandez picked up the lead with two minutes left of the session and kept it to the chequered flag, fending off championship leader Remy Gardner. Xavi Vierge in third ended the day within a tenth of a second of the lead, followed by teammate Jake Dixon, who was almost half a second behind.
After a very wet and dark start to Friday morning, the rain stopped ahead of the second practice session for the premier class, patches of blue sky extended and there was a proper hint of sun. With conditions improving throughout the session, so did lap times, although the track never dried enough for a swap to slick tyres. It did mean that the final couple of minutes became a bit of a rollercoaster on the timing screens, but Jack Miller was unperturbed at the top throughout the entire session.
