2019 Brno Moto2 Qualifying Result: Copy - Paste

If the weather saved the biggest challenge for the premier class, Moto2 had it pretty harsh too, its riders confronted once again with a wet but drying track that hinted at slicks in the final few minutes. Helped by all the information he gathered in Q1, Marco Bezzecchi became the provisional poleman after the first run on rain tyres but it felt more like the calm before the storm. With only one bike to play with, the excitement took some time to build up while mechanics were working frantically on changing setups for slick tyres for the final attack.

Sam Lowes was the first to prove that slicks were the best option and snatched top spot with two minutes remaining but there were plenty of rivals who had the same plan. The man who executed it to perfection was Alex Marquez, the Spaniard keeping a very low profile on the first run but then thrashing the field in true Marquez fashion by a full two seconds. After Marquez bookended his holiday with pole positions, Lowes reminded everyone of his speed with a second spot on the grid. Lorenzo Baldassarri was back to his old self and made a late jump onto the front row.

Nicolo Bulega also left it a tad late but he had already proved his wet weather prowess around Brno earlier in the morning and turned that speed into an excellent fourth place. Another of the weekend’s fast men, Fabio Di Giannantonio found himself in an all Italian sandwich on the second row, but over five seconds slower than the poleman. Bezzecchi was unfortunate not to get a chance to change to slicks but continued to post personal best times on used rain tyres and secured a top qualifying position in sixth.

Marcel Schrotter will be joined on the third row of the grid by a somewhat surprising but fairly impressive duo of Bo Bendsneyder and Jake Dixon, who fought their way through a tricky Q1. Augusto Fernandez could not really follow through on the promise he showed in practice and completed the top ten, ahead of a somewhat underwhelming display from Jorge Navarro and Tom Luthi.
