2009 Mugello 125cc Qualifying Practice Result - Surprise One-Two

Qualifying practice summary and results for the 125cc class at Mugello:

Bradley Smith and Scott Redding took a surprise British one-two during qualifying for tomorrow's 125cc Grand Prix. The session quickly turned into a battle royal between the Bancaja Aspar team mates Julian Simon and Bradley Smith, but it was Smith who was first under 1'59, and then taking pole back from with 10 minutes to go. 6 minutes later, the British rider improved even further, smashing the pole record with an astounding 1'58.134 lap, which no one was capable of matching.

Simon looked like having 2nd place safely in his grasp, but a very smart piece of drafting on the last lap behind KTM's Marc Marquez, Scott Redding catapulted his way into 2nd, and ahead of Julian Simon. The last of the Aspar riders, Sergio Gadea, rounds out the front row. The last of the British riders, Danny Webb, qualified in 10th place, while America's Cameron Beaubier has withdrawn, still suffering with the cracked wrist he suffered  in a crash at Le Mans.
