Magny-Cours WorldSBK FP3 Results | Alvaro Bautista claims first blood on Saturday

Gold and Goose

The WorldSBK riders were back out on track bright and early for the final practice session ahead of Superpole and it was Alvaro Bautista who claimed first blood on Saturday.

Yesterday Jonathan Rea and Michael Ruben Rinaldi claimed top spot in the two Free Practice sessions throughout the day.

Alvaro Bautista may have been outside of the top three all day yesterday but the little Spaniard was back on top on Saturday morning ahead of qualifying.


Garrett Gerloff has claimed a hat-trick of second places so far this weekend. The Texan has finished second place in FP1, FP2 and FP3, with qualifying coming up later on he will be hoping to keep this run going.

Michael Ruben Rinaldi finished first place in FP2 and then backed it up with a third place this morning in the final Practice Session.

British riders claimed fourth and fifth place with Jonathan Rea and Scott Redding claiming the middle ground of the top ten. The Kawasaki man prefers the cooler conditions so may struggle more towards the race later today. However, Redding has put together a consistent weekend so far finding himself in the ten in every session.

Danilo Petrucci found his way into the top ten once again as he finished sixth place in FP3. Improving on his two tenth places from yesterday in FP1 and FP2.

Alex Lowes has been overshadowed off track by his team-mates decision to leave Kawasaki at the end of the year, and on track he has been behind Rea all weekend as Lowes finished seventh this morning.

Remy Gardner and Dominique Aegerter were the only two Yamaha riders to finish inside the top ten in FP3. The Australian rider finished eighth and the Swiss rider finished tenth place for GYTR GRT Yamaha in FP3.

Philipp Oettl had been out of the limelight since the start of the season but finished ninth in FP3 this morning at Magny-Cours.

Bradley Ray finished 23rd and only completed seven laps this morning after appearing to struggle with some problems with his Yamaha.
