Alcoba's first pole with Acosta in the hospital

The leader suffered an ugly fall in FP3 from which he was unharmed, but went through the hospital with Rossi and Nepa, who also did not arrive in time for qualifying.


Face and cross for Spanish interests in Moto3 qualification. The joy came with Jeremy Alcoba's pole position for the Assen grid, the first for the Catalan rider. Sadness or disappointment came with the absence of Pedro Acosta in Q2. The general leader was declared unfit for the official batch after the ugly accident suffered in the morning at the end of FP3. It seemed that he had escaped unharmed and he himself said that he was fine, but a chest trauma was detected.

The Murcian had to go to the hospital for a deeper exploration, the same as Rossi, who passed over him in the fall, and Nepa. The three were initially unharmed, but passing through the hospital prevented them from arriving in time for qualifying. If Acosta is declared fit for tomorrow's race, something they hope will happen in his team, he will start 18th, which will be called to make another of his spectacular comebacks. Without going too far back in time, it must be remembered that last Sunday he started thirteenth at the Sachsenring, which did not prevent him from achieving victory, the fourth of the season out of eight possible for him. That gives him a 55-point overall lead over Sergio Garcia, who has qualified fourth.

The Valencian was at the gates of a front row completed by Fenati and Foggia, although Romano will be penalized for having to do a long double lap for fighting on Friday with his teammate, Adrián Fernández. Together with Aspar's pupil, Toba and Rodrigo will depart from the second line. In the third, Antonelli, Binder and Artigas, who arrived from Q1 and signed a good ninth place. In the fourth, Masiá, McPhee and Suzuki. In the fifth, Guevara, Fellon and Öncü. And in the sixth, Bartolini, Migno and the aforementioned Acosta. Further back will be Adrián Fernández 21º.
