Viñales quickest in Catalunya morning warm-up

After sunny conditions all weekend, the final morning warm-up of Gran Premi Aperol de Catalunya for the Moto3™ class was held under threatening skies, where Maverick Viñales set the fastest time ahead of Louis Rossi.

Having experienced temperatures in the mid to high twenties, the Moto3™ grid had to contend with slightly colder conditions around the low twenty mark this morning, as well as a significant drop in track temperature.

Tomorrow’s pole sitter, Blusens Avintia’s Viñales went quickest ahead of third-place starter, Racing Team Germany’s Louis Rossi. JHK T-Shirt Laglisse’s Efrén Vázquez was third fastest, while second-place starter, AirAsia-SIC-Ajo’s Zulfahmi Khairuddin was fifth.

Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Arthur Sissis had a brief excursion off the track into the gravel, as did Bankia Aspar’s Hector Faubel, while numerous riders touched fairings in the opening stages trying to gain track positions.
