MotoGP, Jerez: Quartararo pole position, great Morbidelli 2nd

Fabio Quartararo takes pole position in Jerez. Franco Morbidelli still over the means and is 2nd, Jack Miller finds confidence in the third position.

Qualifying round reserved for the current MotoGP leader. Fabio Quartararo reaches 12 pole positions in the premier class, 15 considering all categories, as well as the fourth consecutive pole on the Jerez track. And on the pace, he continues to confirm himself not bad. Franco Morbidelli arrives from Q1 and conquers a splendid second box on the grid, Jack Miller seems to find confidence and prints the third time, right in front of his box mate Pecco Bagnaia. Also worth highlighting is the 5th place of the only Honda in the top 12, Takaaki Nakagami, but in any case, they are all close: seven-tenths separate the poleman from the last one in Q2. Prelude to what will be a race not to be missed: the Spanish Grand Prix will start at 14:00.


It begins with a session full of interesting names. There are Morbidelli, three Honda riders, rookies, all KTMs and Rabat. The duo HRC and Binder are particularly highlighted immediately, taking the high areas of the standings, until Morbidelli also enters the fight. It is the Italian who then takes the lead, the first to go under the wall of 1:37 this turn. In the end, the session ends like this, with Franco Morbidelli and Brad Binder able to secure the first two useful places. Oliveira, on the other hand, loses the lap that was worth third place for having gone beyond the limits of the track, the HRC duo also remains out.


Here is the top 12 completed, the fight for pole position starts. The factory reds immediately shine, with Bagnaia in command before Miller‘s overtake. Also watch out for Rins, Quartararo, Morbidelli and Nakagami, the only Honda rider. The battle for the first squares on the starting grid ignites right from the start, while Binder waits a few minutes before joining the company. But it is Fabio Quartararo who places the winning paw. Here is the fourth consecutive pole position on the Andalusian track. The great front row of Franco Morbidelli, the same goes for Jack Miller with Ducati.
