ALCANIZ – It pushes hard in the FP3, but despite a 1’47 “track, the gaps are minimal: Johann Zarco, detached from 0 “402, is out of 10, between the first and the second only 0 ”023, between the first and fourth 0 ”058. Crazy.

The position, therefore, is not only determined by the skill of the rider and the competitiveness of the bike, but you have to be able to do it a practically perfect ride.

Like that of Fabio Quartararo, a point of reference also on the pace: he runs with a constancy as a reference, once again he seems to be the driver to beat. At least for now.

But also Joan Mir he seems to be in pretty good shape: if he manages to make a good qualifying, he can be one of the protagonists.

Aprilia always in front

In second place, once again, Aleix Espargaro, very comfortable on this track and very in tune with his bike. From the side of the track, you can see the difference between him and the new teammate, inevitably still not perfectly at ease with the RS-GP, less fluid than in the times of Yamaha.

But also Maverick Vinales he went fast, only 0 ”863 behind the top: that is to say, he reduced the difference with the first by a good two tenths. Maverick is doing things right, this is not the GP to make a result, as Massimo Rivola explained in yesterday’s live broadcast (you can find it on our YT channel). For Aleix another opportunity to exploit: he can do very well.

Bravo Bagnaia

The first Ducati is that of Pecco Bagnaia, fourth: from the edge of the track, you can see a Pecco very comfortable with the bike, very safe when entering and braking, with a front end that is always nice and solid on the asphalt.

The Ducati has four bikes in the ten, with Jack Miller fifth, who worked hard for the race, Jorge Martin sixth and a very good Enea Bastianini tenth and for the first time directly in Q2.

Enea has been driving well since yesterday, he explained that he has changed a little approach to the GP: starting further than usual, it can do really well.

Honda so-so

A little more was expected from Honda, seventh with Pol Espargaro (he did the time in the wake of his teammate) and eighth with Marc Marquez, fell once again during the shift, as did his brother Alex.

In some places, Marc seems comfortable on the RCV, in others he seems to struggle a lot: yesterday he was even indicated as one of the favorites, today there are fewer certainties.
