Quartararo brings out the devil inside him again

The Frenchman repeats pole in Jerez and with a record included, now ahead of Maverick and Márquez, who saves on Saturday with the front row and without penalty for hindering Rins.


Fabio Quartararo's second consecutive pole in Ángel Nieto de Jerez and, as he did last year, with a new track record (1: 36,705). The Frenchman now hopes that the story will be completely different from that of 2019, when a breakdown in his Yamaha removed him from the fight for the podium, and he can thus finally achieve the challenge that remains to be overcome: conquer his first victory in MotoGP .

The best rookie of last season also has three poles in a row, because that of this Spanish GP is chained to those of Valencia and Malaysia last year. His advantage in the time table at the end has been 0.139 over a Maverick Viñales who is very inspired and 0.157 over Marc Márquez.

The champion can be good on Saturday because, in addition to securing the front row, which is the goal that is always set, he has been saved from a three-position penalty on the grid for disturbing Álex Rins during FP3. The Repsol Honda man was under investigation, but it was found that he had been shown a yellow flag at Turn 2 and that was why he had to slow down, which hindered a Rins who had not cut due to being needed to enter yet. in the top ten

Suzuki, who reached Q2 with the best time in Q1, fell in the final moments of the official session, as did Miller and Dovzioso. The worst stop of the three was the Spaniard, who in his wallow in fast corner 11 (Ferrari) was injured and had to be taken by ambulance to the circuit clinic. He was seen clutching his right arm, which is usually a clear symptom of a clavicle failure. See if you are lucky and everything is in a scare, but it looks bad.

The second line has been left for Bagnaia, Miller and Crutchlow. The third, for Pol, Dovizioso and Rins. And the fourth for Morbidelli, Rossi and Mir. Further back will be Aleix 16º, Rabat 19º, Álex Márquez 21º and Lecuona 22º.
