Moto3: Salom holds control in Qatar

Luis Salom fastest during Friday practice for the season-opening Moto3 Grand Prix at Qatar.
Luis Salom remained on top in the third and final Moto3 practice session at the Commercial Bank Grand Prix of Qatar today, although a brief rain shower effectively ended proceedings early.

The showers were not heavy, but a further sprinkling prevented the majority from improving lap times as the Moto3 runners enjoying their final track time ahead of Saturday's qualifying session.

Salom, who had already topped the timesheets on Thursday, this time led the way for the Red Bull KTM Ajo outfit with a 2'08.167. His closest challenger was Estrella Galicia 0,0's Alex Rins, as Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3's Jonas Folger, Caretta Technology – RTG's Jack Miller and Mahindra Racing's Efrén Vázquez completed the top five.

As the mechanics kept a close eye on the skies, no less than three incidents came in the early stages as GO&FUN Gresini Moto3's Niccolò Antonelli, Miller's teammate John McPhee and Aspar's Eric Granado all suffered falls.

Further up the order, the second Estrella Galicia of Alex Márquez finished sixth from the still injured Maverick Viñales on board his Team Calvo KTM. Completing the first ten were San Carlo Team Italia's Romano Fenati, Ambrogio Racing's Danny Webb and Avant Tecno's Niklas Ajo.
