Moto3 Misano, Qualifying: Record and 8th pole of the season for Jorge Martín

Del Conca team rider Jorge Martín conquered again the first position on the starting grid, registering the new record of the track. Rodrigo and Canet will also start from the front row, while Bezzecchi is 6th.

 

His 8th pole position of the season and the 17th in his career together with the new record of the circuit: this is Jorge Martín Qualifying! Tomorrow, he will kick off again from the first position on the starting grid. Together with him on the front row, there will be Gabriel Rodrigo and Aron Canet. The second row belongs to Italy, with Di Giannantonio, Bastianini and Bezzecchi ahead of Bulega and Dalla Porta. The Moto3 race will start tomorrow, Sunday 9th, at 11 AM.

Just a few minutes after the beginning of the round, McPhee experienced the first technical issues and had to stop on the trackside. In the meanwhile, the head of the ranking changed many times until Rodrigo temporarily took the lead (falling right after on Turn 1). Philipp Öttl fell too after a violent high-side on Turn 2: the rider managed to start again, but is later declared unfit to race because of a concussion. As usual, the final assault took place right before the end of the round: all riders on the track were determined to get the best possible position on the starting grid.

The new Circuit’s record belongs to Martín, who registered an amazing 1:41.823 and got his 8th pole position of the season. Gabriel Rodrigo and Aron Canet will be next to him on the front row, while a group of Italian riders took up the whole second row: Fabio Di Giannantonio, Enea Bastianini, and Marco Bezzecchi. Nicolò Bulega got the 7th place ahead of his fellow countryman Lorenzo Dalla Porta and of Jakub Kornfeil (his second recorded time was canceled as a penalty for going out of track’s boundaries). Ayumu Sasaki filled up the last position in the top 10.
