2019 Valencia Moto3 Qualifying Result: Ending On A High

The sun embraced the surface of the Ricardo Tormo Circuit a bit more by the time the first qualifying session of the day got underway and put some more warmth into tyres. The man who enjoyed the conditions most ended up being Andrea Migno, who led almost the entirety of Q2 and will be lining up on pole position for his 100th grand prix appearance. The Italian opens front row, with FP3 leader Marcos Ramirez separating the two Mugen Race teammates, Jaume Masia taking the final available spot on the first row of the grid.

A rather agitated Aron Canet managed to save his day on the final flying lap, when he made the jump from outside the top ten into fourth position on the grid. Sergio Garcia sits in the middle of the second row, the Spaniard aiming to finish his rookie season on a high, ahead of fellow rookie Filip Salac. Lorenzo Dalla Porta opens the third row of the grid from Tatsuki Suzuki, who was comfortably fastest in Q1. Darryn Binder also escaped Q1 to join row three, while Romano Fenati lost a bit of the momentum from practice and dropped to tenth.

Impressive wildcard Carlos Tatay safely navigated his way out of Q1 as well and spent much of the Q2 session in the top three but eventually found himself demoted to the middle of the fourth row, ahead of Tony Arbolino. The Italian’s session took a turn for the worst after the first run in Q2, when the VNE Snipers rider suffered a pretty scary high side into turn two and could not rejoin, dropping from the front row to 12th.
