Andrea Migno leads the Moto3 field as they head into qualifying.
Moto3 veteran Andrea Migno was the quickest man in the lightweight FP3 class, the Italian rider taking the top spot by a mere 0.092 seconds ahead of Stefano Nepa who is becoming a name we are consistently seeing at the top of the timesheets, the Italian seems to have found something since his teammate Riccardo Rossi took a shock podium at Le Mans and is chasing his own podium, a great result for the rider.
In P3 and P4 we see a Japanese duo of Kaito Toba and Tatsuki Suzuki, both riders have spent many years in Moto3 now with Suzuki confirming that this will be his final year in the class, he knows that the Moto2 teams are watching now and needs some solid results, he finished ahead of Filip Salaac who took an impressive P5.
A rider we haven’t spoken about too much this year is Lorenzo Fellon, son of Laurent Fellon who is the ex-manager of Johann Zarco, Fellon made a surprising switch to the world championship after just one season in the FIM CEV Moto3 championship and has spent much of the season running at the back of the field not scoring a point yet. Despite this you cannot forget his age, he is the youngest full-time rider in all three classes at just 16 years old and is spending his time learning the circuits and the riders he’s against, he’s made some huge steps this weekend at Sachsenring and finds himself directly into Q2 taking a P6 in the FP3 session ahead of Dennis Foggia.
The angry John McPhee finished just behind Foggia, he has lost his crew chief now to Jake Dixon and is incredibly upset at his team, it gives you the feeling that this will be his last year now, down in P11, P12 andP13 we have a rookie trio of Izan Guevara, Xavi Artigas then Pedro Acosta, if you watch the FIM CEV you will know that this is the exact order they finished in the championship last year, they finished ahead of Niccolo Antonelli who occupies the final Q2 spot.
There are some surprising riders who will need to go via the Q1 session including Jaume Masia, Deniz Oncu, Jeremy Alcoba, Riccardo Rossi and Gabriel Rodrigo.
