Austrian GP free practice 3 best times, Johann Zarco (1st) and Fabio Quartararo (2nd) in Q2

As the day before, Johann Zarco dominated the lap this Saturday, during the third free practice session of the Austrian Grand Prix. The Frenchman feels good on the Red Bull Ring on the handlebars of his Ducati Pramac and he is unfazed when slamming the lap times.

In 1’28”964, he set the benchmark time, beating Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha, 0”153) on the wire. Both will arrive in force in the second round of qualifying at 2:35 p.m.

A. Espargaro not on his plate

Quartararo displayed a very interesting pace collecting the fast laps. Behind him, Jack Miller (Ducati) hung on to finish third (+0”316), while Jorge Martin (Pramac) and Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati) claimed fourth and fifth places respectively.

The other big news concerns Aleix Espargaro, definitely not on his plate on the Austrian circuit. He fell ten minutes from the end of the session by taking the new chicane badly and he could not save his place in Q2 (11th time). The second ranking at the World Championship will have to go through the repechage.
