The rules


As in Moto2, Moto3 riders will have two 40-minute free practice sessions at the end of which a first ranking will be established. Riders ranked after the first fourteen in the combined results of the first two sessions will have a fifteen-minute qualifying session (Q1). The four best times will be admitted to the session bringing together the first fourteen from free practice for a new qualifying session (Q2) which will determine the first eighteen places on the grid. Each row consists of three riders. To qualify, a rider must have set a time at least equal to 110% of the time set by the fastest rider.


The Moto3 World Championship consists of 21 Grand Prix races which are run over a distance of around 100km. Points are awarded to the top 15 finishers according to the following scale: 25, 20, 15, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 point.
