Red Bull KTM Tech 3’s Ayumu Sasaki finished top of the pile in Moto3™ Warm Up at the BMW M Grand Prix of Styria after setting a 1:36.253 on Sunday morning. Front row starter Raul Fernandez (Red Bull KTM Ajo) finished 0.028 off the Japanese rider, with Celestino Vietti (SKY Racing Team VR46) just over a tenth back in third.

Championship leader Albert Arenas (Valresa Aspar Team) and title contender Ai Ogura (Honda Team Asia) completed the top five ahead of the second 2020 Moto3™ Red Bull Ring encounter.

Second in the Championship John McPhee (Petronas Sprinta Racing) faced issues in Warm Up and at the end of the session, pitlane reporter Simon Crafar said the Petronas mechanics were changing the engine on his Honda machine. Keep an eye on the Scotsman who launches from P6 later on.
