Márquez leads the wheel of an Aleix who is ahead of his rivals

How interesting and exciting the outcome of FP3 of the Australian GP has been. It was led by Marc Márquez taking advantage of the wheel of an Aleix Espargaró who was not there to cut, whoever he took to his wheel. And the thing is that the Aprilia rider was out of the top ten in the final stretch of the third free practice session and had to shoot to ensure a direct position for Q2, which he achieved with his fourth place finish, well ahead of Bagnaia’s eighth and Quartararo’s tenth, their direct rivals for the title.

Marc achieved his best time with the old fairing, without wings on the tail, and it was with the invaluable help of an Aleix who was fifteenth when he began his final rush. The Repsol Honda rider took two laps with the reference of the Aprilia rider and which enabled him to rise to the top of the table for the third consecutive GP in at least one session. In Japan, he led in the wet and then took pole position on wet tarmac. In Thailand, he was already able to lead in the dry, in the first free practice. And now in Australia he takes another step forward, because everyone has shot like crazy in the last twelve minutes of FP3, as if it were a qualification.

After the eight-time champion and until closing the top ten with provisional direct access to Q2, Marini, Martín, Aleix, Bezzecchi, Miller, Álex Márquez, Bagnaia, Maverick and Quartararo. They will go through Q1 purgatory, Mir 12th, Pol 15th, Rins 17th and Fernández 19th. In that playoff he should be an important rival Zarco (11th), who led both sessions yesterday, and also Bastianini (14th).
