2019 Aragon Moto2 Qualifying Result: Home Sweet Home

The final action for the day fully repaid the patience of the fans who braved the rain and the heat to stick around and see one of their own take pole position in Aragon. Alex Marquez did what his brother could not do and brought down the all time lap record on first outing in Q2, although the younger Marquez didn’t have it quite as easy in the end, when Augusto Fernandez got close to challenging his compatriot. However, Marquez kept Fernandez at bay to score his 10th pole position in the class. Together with Fernandez and Brad Binder, it sets up a rather tasty front row start for Sunday.

Luca Marini was fast throughout practice but missed out on a front row start by nine thousandths of a second. The Italian will lead a very competitive charge against the lead trio together with Tom Luthi and Jorge Navarro. Xavi Vierge found his way onto the third row of the grid, mere hundredths of a second keeping him ahead of Nicolo Bulega and Sam Lowes.

Iker Lecuona rounded out the top ten ahead of a subdued Lorenzo Baldassarri and with Fabio Di Giannantonio completing round ten – a bittersweet result for the rookie, who struggled throughout practice but put in an excellent performance to lead Q1. Despite being only 12th, Di Giannantonio was only six tenths of a second behind pole.
