Moto3 Mugello, Qualifying: Pole position n.13 for Martin, front row also for Suzuki and Sasaki

Jorge Martin can now count 13 pole positions in his career. For the first time also Tatsuki Suzuki and Ayumu Sasaki will be in the front row, while Bezzecchi got the 5th position, first among the Italian riders.

Jorge Martin got the best position on the starting grid at the Mugello Circuit today: with this successful qualifying, the Spanish rider conquered his 13th pole position, an excellent result with a time very close to the record one registered in 2015 by Danny Kent. Together with him on the front row, for the first time, there will be Tatsuki Suzuki and the best 2017 rookie, Ayumu Sasaki, too. Marco Bezzecchi arrived 5th, the best result among all Italian riders. The Moto3 race will start tomorrow at 11 AM.

Martins and the Italian riders immediately showed their speed at the beginning of this Qualifying, trying to get the best positions on tomorrow’s starting grid. Early in the round, we witnessed an accident at Borgo San Lorenzo Turn, with Sasaki hitting the rider in front of him, Atiratphuvapat, and falling. The ranking then remained stable, with the Spanish rider of Del Conca team taking the lead, temporarily followed by Suzuki and a group of six Italian riders headed by the World Championship leader Bezzecchi. As usual, the last few minutes were the most important to determine the final disposition on the starting grid, as all riders started to fight fiercely for the pole position.

Jorge Martin can now add another pole to his list: he is the undiscussed leader of Qualifying, and he will kick off first tomorrow, ahead of Tatsuki Suzuki and Ayumu Sasaki (on the front row for the first time). Aron Canet got the 4th place, followed by Marco Bezzecchi, Fabio Di Giannantonio, and Niccolò Antonelli, while Adam Norrodin, Marcos Ramirez, and Kaito Toba filled the last positions in the top ten.
