Gardner and Baldassarri shine through the weather in FP3

Australian and Italian close at the top in damp and difficult conditions

Remy Gardner (Tech 3 Racing) topped FP3 at the Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina, showing his wet weather prowess and fighting off a close challenge from Lorenzo Baldassarri (Pons HP40) as the two were split by just 0.070. Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo) was third quickest, but more than three tenths back.

One crasher in the session was Sam Lowes (Swiss Innovative Investors), as the Brit slid out at the final corner – rider ok after the low drama incidents and heading back into pitlane.
