Rodrigo's pole in a Q2 in which Masiá did not enter due to a penalty

The Spaniard fell at the end of the Q1 that he had led and returned to the pits after a fall, splashing the track with oil, which cost him the punishment of never starting again.


The start of the Moto3 Q2 was delayed due to the unintentional mess by Masiá at the end of Q1. Rodrigo got the pole, the fifth for him and this time ahead of Fernández and Suzuki, and he could not opt for that first row or any of the first six Masiá. Despite the fact that the Valencian finished first in Q1, he fell at the end and returned to the track as best he could, to take his motorcycle to the box with the hope that it would be fixed in time to be able to go to Q2, but he did not. because he received a penalty for splashing oil with his Honda on the asphalt of the Red Bull Ring. It was for this reason that Pizzoli, Migno and Gardner fell.

Masiá did not know what he had packed and, despite the fact that the stewards told him to leave his motorcycle parked, he made an effort to remove the fairing that was damaged and without gloves he got on his mechanics again to get to the box, oblivious to the jet of oil that was released especially in turns 9 and 10 and in the pit entrance. Later, in a gesture that honors him, he apologized to his colleagues who had fallen because of him.

From the second row, Arbolino, Vietti and McPhee will depart. And from the third, Foggia, Ogura and Arenas. The leader of the general classification, with three victories to his credit, one second and one zero per crash, continues to resist pole position, but Albert has already shown that his strength is racing and that he is a master at managing the classics Moto3 infarction late

Further back will come García 13º, Alcoba 14º, Masiá 18º, Tatay 23º and López 24º.
