Avintia Esponsorama Moto3 and Avintia VR46 Academy finished the Grande Prémio Brembo do Algarve qualifying at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve.

Niccolò Antonelli, who didn’t get direct access to Q2 after the free practice sessions, qualified in the top 4 in Q1. In Q2, with a time of 1:47.774, the VR46 Academy rider was 8th, which will allow him to start tomorrow’s race from the third row.
