Moto3 Jerez, Qualifying: A new pole position for Jorge Martin. Binder injured.

Jorge Martin got the leading position on the Jerez starting grid, ahead of Oettl and an Italian quartet. Binder fell, losing the chance of racing tomorrow because of a shoulder injury.

The World Championship leader Jorge Martin signs the qualifying session in Jerez de la Frontera: with a lap time of 1:46.193 he wins the pole position ahead of Phillip Oettl, his teammate Fabio Di Giannantonio and three other Italian riders, Antonelli, Bezzecchi and Migno, who will be starting from row two. The race will start on Sunday at 11 AM.

Darryn Binder fell during the first few minutes of this Qualifying (for the second time today) on Turn 4. He was immediately carried to the medical center for a checkup: they found a sub-dislocation of the left shoulder that won’t let him compete tomorrow. The situation immediately heated up on track: Migno and Antonelli took up leading positions right after the start. The same did Martin, determined to kick off from the best possible position in his first GP at home, as well as his teammate Di Giannantonio. Oettl called for attention during the second half of the round, temporarily taking the lead.

But Jorge Martin remains the king of the pole position: he eventually took control of Qualifying and will start from the grid’s first row tomorrow. Together with him on the front row will be Phillip Oettl and Fabio Di Giannantonio, followed by the three Italian riders Niccolò Antonelli, Marco Bezzecchi and Andrea Migno. Alonso Lopez finished 7th ahead of Leopard riders Enea Bastianini and Lorenzo Dalla Porta. The last position in top 10 belongs to Tatsuki Suzuki.

Both rookie Makar Yurchenko and Gabriel Rodrigo fell, separately, at the end of the round. Here the other Italians’ positions: Dennis Foggia will start 12th from the grid tomorrow, Tony Arbolino arrived 21st ahead of Nicolò Bulega.
