At the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, Portimão, Saturday (21/11/2020), the competition for the sharpest time in this training session was especially intense towards the end.
Miguel Oliveira, the home rider who also recorded the best time in FP1 MotoGP Portugal 2020, had perched in the top position. But after that there was Alex Rins who shot to take the place at the top.
Not long after, the position changed again because Oliveira managed to sharpen the time to turn to surpass Rins. Until finally Jack Miller participated in ‘joining’ and kicked off at the last moment to record the best time in FP3 MotoGP Portugal.
Jack Miller finished the session with a best lap time of 1 minute 39.205 seconds. He is only within 0.1 seconds of the time recorded by Miguel Oliveira and Alex Rins. Meanwhile, Rins’ teammate at Suzuki is also the champion MotoGP 2020, Joan Mir, is in 15th place in this session.
