Marquez breaks lap record in Mugello

0

Reigning MotoGP champion Marc Marquez topped FP3 with a new record lap at Mugello as he looks set to win his fourth consecutive grand prix.

Suzuki’s Andrea Iannone was into the lead early on in FP3, carrying over his fine form from Friday.

As late-session soft-tyre time attacks kicked off though, he was finally replaced at the top by compatriot Valentino Rossi, the Yamaha rider narrowly breaking the 1m47s mark.

Shortly thereafter, Honda rider Marquez fired in the best lap of the weekend so far, eclipsing Iannone’s Friday benchmark with a 1m46.439s.

That time was also good enough for the pole record at Mugello.

The closing stages of FP3 saw a number of riders jostling for positions.
