2020 Teruel Moto2 Qualifying Result: Keep Calm And Carry On

The last action of the day was provided by the Moto2 class, where there was a rather predictable back to back pole position for Sam Lowes. To no one’s surprise, the British rider demonstrated to be the fastest man in the intermediate class throughout Q2 as well and even afforded to sit out the final couple of minutes. No one came close enough to make him nervous, although that was partly due to a late crash for Jorge Navarro, which prompted a yellow flag, although the Spaniard had claimed second on the grid before the crash. Remy Gardner did a solid job to join the front row, four tenths off Lowes’ benchmark.

Fabio Di Giannantonio will have another go at victory from fourth on the grid, ahead of a fairly impressive Marcos Ramirez and championship leader Enea Bastianini. Jake Dixon opens row three as the final man within half a second of the leader and followed by another solid performance from Hector Garzo and Augusto Fernandez.

Q1 leader Bo Bendsneyder rounded out the top ten and will be joined on the front row by Q1 colleague Luca Marini and Jorge Martin, although the Spaniard should expect a visit to the stewards after a post-session temper tantrum with Marco Bezzecchi. The Italian is supposed to start one row behind, between Joe Roberts and Edgar Pons.

2020 Teruel MotoGP Qualifying Result: New Is Always Better

Another crucial and somewhat dramatic qualifying session for the premier class got underway in a warm Saturday afternoon at Motorland Aragon and it was a momentous achievement for Takaaki Nakagami. The Japanese rider was fastest throughout Q2 and never allowed anyone to get a proper taste at pole, becoming the sixth pole sitter of the season and the first Japanese one in the premier class in 16 years. Franco Morbidelli came as close as six hundredths of a second of pole but will be happy enough starting from the middle of the front row. Alex Rins found himself chasing qualifying expert Fabio Quartararo on his final flying lap and used the deluxe tow to place himself on the front row of the grid, which bodes well for Suzuki given what he did from fourth row last time out.

Maverick Vinales came nearly four tenths short of pole and opens row two of the grid, ahead of Q1 escapee Johann Zarco. The Frenchman was the only Ducati to escape the first qualifying session and despite a late crash he did well to finish fifth, ahead of compatriot Quartararo, whose couple of moments at the final turn cost him a go at pole.

Zarco’s crash made quite a few victims on the timesheets initally but after all the times were reinstated post-session, without much explanation offered, Cal Crutchlow opened row three ahead of Miguel Oliveira and Pol Espargaro. The Spaniard was the fastest man in Q1 but ran out of soft tyres for Q2 and the mediums were only fast enough for ninth place. 

With penalties also reversed for rookies Alex Marquez and Iker Lecuona, the Spaniards scored their best starting positions. Meanwhile, Joan Mir was the slowest rider in the session and left himself with a lot of work to do to defend the championship lead. However, the Spaniard won’t be as miserable as title rival Andrea Dovizioso, the disappointing Ducati show ending in Q1 with Jack Miller 14th, Dovizioso 17th and Danilo Petrucci 19th.

2020 Teruel MotoGP FP4 Result: Vinales Leads, Nakagami Dominates

The final practice session saw the premier class flexing their race pace muscles and many came prepared for battle. Maverick Vinales robbed Takaaki Nakagami of top spot by over a tenth of a second on his final flying lap and while both men demonstrated solid pace, it was the Japanese rider who seemed one step ahead of the competition. Joan Mir held the lead early in the session before dropping to third, four tenths off the fastest time but with fine pace of his own and minuscule gaps in the rest of the top ten behind him.

Pol and Aleix Espargaro also showed their speed inside the top five, ahead of Franco Morbidelli and Jack Miller finally adding a Ducati to the top ten mix. While most riders had settled on the medium front-soft rear tyre combination, Alex Rins committed to the soft-soft option and showed decent pace on it, finishing eighth in the session. Cal Crutchlow and Miguel Oliveira rounded out the top ten, while Alex Marquez in 11th was the only rider tempted by the hard front in the closing stages on FP4, on which he posted times similar to his pace on the medium. Fabio Quartararo ended the session 12th, eight tenths off the lead but with similar pace to the leaders, in the high 1:48s but consistently a couple of tenths slower than Nakagami.

Meanwhile, Andrea Dovizioso struggled to even break into the 1:48s and ended FP4 down in 17th position.

2020 Teruel Moto3 Qualifying Result: Not Everyone Needs A Slipstream

The lightweight class were ready for battle in the warmer afternoon of Motorland Aragon but ultimately there was only one gladiator up for the fight. While rivals were trying to find clever ways to chase the right slipstream, Raul Fernandez minded his own business and consolidated his advantage at the front of the pack. The Spaniard led the way throughout and secured his fifth pole position of the season by over two tenths of a second from the returning Tony Arbolino. The Italian chased the championship leader to climb to the middle of the front row, with compatriot Celestino Vietti completing the line-up.

Gabriel Rodrigo was the last rider to sneak out of Q1 and looked like securing a fine front row for much of Q2 but eventually got demoted to fourth, ahead of Albert Arenas and Ayumu Sasaki. Jaume Masia made a late jump onto the third row, where he will be joined by Kaito Toba, who benefitted from a bit of help from his poleman teammate, and Tatsuki Suzuki, who was six tenths off pole.

Ai Ogura completed the top ten and opens row four from Q1 leader Filip Salac and Dennis Foggia, while Romano Fenati, Jeremy Alcoba and Darryn Binder make up row five. Although he made it straight to Q2, John McPhee seemed to struggle during qualifying, only 17th fastest and starting his attack for the title from the middle of the sixth row, between Stefano Nepa and Deniz Oncu.

2020 Teruel Moto2 FP3 Result: Lightning Fast Lowes

The intermediate class’ final practice session at Motorland Aragon stared with Sam Lowes top of the combined standings following Friday’s sessions and ended with the British rider raising the bar further in the final 13 minutes of FP3 and improving on his own lap record. The Marc VDS rider was six hundredths of a second faster than an impressive Edgar Pons, with another surprise appearance from Marcos Ramirez in third.

Remy Gardner and Hector Garzo completed the top five, only three tenths off top spot, while early leader Augusto Fernandez dropped to sixth spot, marginally ahead of Jorge Martin. Marco Bezzecchi had a decent morning in eighth position, although half a second slower than his title rival and narrowly ahead of Jake Dixon. Enea Bastianini spent most of the session outside of the combined top 14 but joined it when it mattered, securing a top 10 in the session as well. Lorenzo Baldassarri was a late addition to the combined top 14, while some of riders kept their Q2 spots even though they failed to improve on their times from Friday. That was the case for Jorge Navarro, Fabio Di Giannantonio and Joe Roberts, the American having a shortened session after a crash at turn 2 halfway through proceedings.

Meanwhile, Luca Marini did not enjoy his morning in Aragon at all, dropping out of the combined top 14 in the closing stages of FP3 and having to fight it off in Q1 with the likes of Xavi Vierge, Nicolo Bulega or Tom Luthi.

2020 Teruel MotoGP FP3 Result: Morbidelli Brings Yamaha Back

Day 2 at the Teruel GP started off quite intensely for the premier class, with a crazy close battle for Q2 places, less than four tenths of a second separating the top 10 by the end of FP3. Franco Morbidelli was the first rider to improve on his Friday time and after brief interruptions from Fabio Quartararo and Takaaki Nakagami, the Italian reclaimed the lead of the session on his final flying lap. Nakagami had to settle for second, only five hundredths of a second back and with Quartararo third, six hundredths off his teammate – all three men setting a fine pace at the front.

Maverick Vinales in fourth was only a tenth of a second slower than the leader, making it three Yamahas in the top four once again, while Alex Marquez and Iker Lecuona continued to impress as the two rookies joined the top six in the final shootout. The Suzukis started the session strong but dropped a few positions in the closing stages of FP3, Alex Rins down to 7th and Joan Mir clinging onto 10th spot, with Miguel Oliveira and Cal Crutchlow between them.

In a déjà vu from last weekend, there were no Ducatis going directly into Q2, with Jack Miller missing out by two hundredths of a second, while Andrea Dovizioso was 14th, only half a second off top spot and birthday boy Danilo Petrucci dropped to 17th, seven tenths off compatriot Morbidelli’s top time.

2020 Teruel Moto3 FP3 Result: Arenas Leads Despite Penalty

With about a third of the lightweight class grid scheduled to miss the final 15 or 25 minutes of FP3 due to irresponsible riding last weekend, there was action throughout the session and a few tense waits along pitlane during the final shootout. Championship leader Albert Arenas was one of the men serving a penalty but the Spaniard claimed top spot with 16 minutes remaining and safely secured his Q2 spot. Also amongst the penalty line-up, Raul Fernandez climbed into second, eight hundredths of a second slower than his compatriot, while penalty-free Celestino Vietti also finished within a tenth of the lead.

Romano Fenati and Ai Ogura completed the top five, only a tenth or so off top spot and another tenth ahead of Ayumu Sasaki, early session leader Darryn Binder and Dennis Foggia. Tony Arbolino waited until the final possible moment to break into the combined top 14 and climbed into ninth, while Tatsuki Suzuki completed the top ten.

Deniz Oncu in 11th position was the last rider within half a second of the lead, while Jaume Masia was forced to miss the final 25 minutes of the session but his FP1 time kept him safely inside the combined top 14. That was also the case for Jeremy Alcoba, who had his own 15 minutes penalty to serve and despite finishing 28th in the session, he stayed inside the combined top 14 with his top time from Friday. The last man to sneak into the top 14 was John McPhee, the Scotsman starting his session with a crash at turn 8 and only breaking into Q2 positions on his final flying lap.

2020 Teruel Moto2 FP2 Result: Lowes Tops Red Flagged Session

The final session of Day 1 at the Teruel GP proved to be the most eventful of the lot, with two red flags following crashes at turn 8 requiring some clean-up. The second of them was prompted by Sam Lowes’ off track adventures in the final ten minutes but the British rider was unharmed and led the session throughout, finishing half a tenth ahead of Jorge Navarro. Hector Garzo continues to impress, this time in third position, two tenths off the lead.

Fabio Di Giannantonio is still enjoying his time around Motorland Aragon, making a late jump into fourth, only one thousandth of a second ahead of Joe Roberts. Jorge Martin picked up some speed after a low key FP1 and joined the top six, narrowly ahead of Jake Dixon and Remy Gardner. Nicolo Bulega had a good afternoon in ninth, with Edgar Pons rounding out the top ten despite an early crash at turn 8 that saw the first red flag wave.

Title hopefuls Marco Bezzecchi and Enea Bastianini narrowly missed out on the top ten, while Luca Marini spent the entire session at the back of the top 20, finishing the day 23rd. Unlike the former championship leader, Augusto Fernandez and Hafizh Syahrin also secured provisional places in the top 14.

2020 Teruel MotoGP FP2 Result: Nakagami Keeps Honda On Top

In the warmer conditions, premier class riders were quick to improve on their best times from the morning session, although Alex Marquez’s FP1 benchmark lasted until the final shootout that got under way with seven minutes remaining. The Spaniard might have lost prime position but it stayed in the family, with Takaaki Nakagami setting a fine pace at the front of the pack and posting the first 1:47 time of the day. Maverick Vinales reduced the gap to under two tenths of a second in the closing stages of FP2 and was the only other rider in the 1:47s. Cal Crutchlow improved LCR’s day further, making a late jump into the top three, three tenths slower than his teammate.

Fabio Quartararo was in no rush to prove his speed and entered the final time attack in 15th position but promptly climbed to fourth, ahead of title rival Joan Mir, who completed the top five. Alex Rins finished the day only eighth thousandths of a second slower than his teammate with Iker Lecuona a surprise top KTM in seventh position. The Espargaro duo occupied eighth and ninth position, Aleix ahead of Pol on this occasion, while Alex Marquez rounded out the top ten, six tenths off top spot and only one thousandth of a second ahead of rookie rival Brad Binder. However, the Honda man was safely inside of the combined top ten, where he was sixth, courtesy of his great FP1 topping time.

Some of the people who were nowhere near the top ten were all of the men riding for Ducati, with all the factory machines outside of the top 15 and with Andrea Dovizioso leaving himself with a lot of work to do in FP3 to improve on 19th in the combined standings.

2020 Teruel Moto3 FP2 Result: Alcoba Makes His Move

A sunny Aragon welcomed the lightweight class from their lunch break and the wind seemed to cause some trouble for riders trying to break into the combined top 14. Jeremy Alcoba did not have any such issues, the Spaniard picking up the lead at the end of the final time attack, one tenth of a second faster than compatriot Raul Fernandez. Gabriel Rodrigo made it a bittersweet session for the Gresini squad, the Argentine rider climbing up to third but crashing out at turn 12 in the closing stages of FP2.

Darryn Binder also finished within two tenths of the leader, while Ai Ogura was the early leader after a low key morning session, although he got demoted to fifth towards the end of the session. John McPhee kept close in sixth, half a second off the lead and ahead of Dennis Foggia, Filip Salac and Tatsuki Suzuki. Championship leader Albert Arenas rounded out the top ten, seven tenths off top spot.

Meanwhile, FP1 leader Jaume Masia dropped to 19th position but remained the fastest man of the day courtesy of his morning time. Despite missing out on the top ten of the session, the likes of Tony Arbolino, Romano Fenati and Deniz Oncu remained inside the combined top 14.
