2020 Aragon Moto2 Qualifying Result: A Late Attack

The intermediate class closed the qualifying show in Aragon, under a clear blue sky and in temperatures just over 20 degrees. Some of the usual contenders hogged the limelight, although Sam Lowes waited until the final two minutes of Q2 to go from the bottom of the top ten straight into an impressive pole position and respective lap record. The British rider was over a tenth and a half faster than Marco Bezzecchi and the title contenders will be joined on the front row of the grid by Fabio Di Giannantonio – the Speed Up man following through with the promise he showed throughout practice.

Jake Dixon opens row two from Marcos Ramirez, who benefitted from a deluxe tow from the championship leader early in the session. Jorge Navarro closes the second row of the grid, while Luca Marini opens the third one, ahead of Q1 leader Jorge Martin and Augusto Fernandez. Remy Gardner rounded out the top ten, with Joe Roberts ending his day early with a mechanical and getting stuck in 11th position. Amongst the title contenders, Enea Bastianini is on the back foot once again, starting his charge from the back of the fourth row and almost one second slower than the poleman.

Tom Luthi and Tetsuta Nagashima escaped Q1 to join the fifth row of the grid, while Marcel Schotter was a surprise 22nd after failing to get through the first qualifying session.
