Folger takes top spot in FP3

 Folger takes top spot in FP3

Jonas Folger left it until the checkered flag had been waved to top FP3 ahead of Tito Rabat and Alex Rins.

AGR Team’s Jonas Folger topped Free Practice 3 with a dramatic last lap to finish 0.174s ahead of Tito Rabat. The German took advantage of cooler conditions to improve his lap time from Friday by well over a second, topping the timesheets and setting the fastest time of the weekend so far in the process.

EG 0,0 Marc VDS’s Rabat (+0.174s) had led for most of the session but had to settle for second ahead of Alex Rins (+0.369s) on the Paginas Amarillas HP40 Kalex. Rabat may not have topped the timesheets, but his race pace looked ominous as he comfortably and consistently lapped in the 2’02’s.

Italtrans Racing Team’s Franco Morbidelli (+0.543s) was in fourth with Rins’ teammate Luis Salom (+0.581s) improving from 10th overnight to fifth. Thomas Luthi (+0.671s) on the Derendinger Racing Interwetten Kalex finished the session in sixth, with Speed Up Racing’s Sam Lowes improving late on to set the seventh fastest time.

Championship leader Johann Zarco (Ajo Motorsport) had to settle for eighth, with Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Simone Corsi (Forward Racing) completing the top ten.
