2020 Andalucia Moto2 Qualifying Result: First Time First

With the tight gaps throughout the field in Moto2 practice sessions, qualifying was always going to spark a surprise or two. Perhaps the least surprising occurrence was Marco Bezzecchi scoring his first pole position in the intermediate class after a strong weekend and despite still limping his way around the paddock. Sam Lowes is back on the front row for a second consecutive weekend in Jerez and will be joined by Enea Bastianini, the Italian flying through Q1 and heading to the front row.

Jorge Navarro looked like a threat for pole or at least front row but had to make do with top spot on the second row, a tenth of a second off pole and marginally quicker than Luca Marini and Jorge Martin. Rookie Aron Canet did well to climb into seventh position, ahead of Nicolo Bulega and an improving Tom Luthi. Teammate Marcel Schrotter escaped Q1 and secured a fourth row start, together with Fabio Di Giannantonio and Xavi Vierge – both men with quite a bit to prove after an underwhelming start to their season.

Tetsuta Nagashima was lucky to be back in action after a bizzare and painful looking crash in the morning but the championship leader will have to defend his advantage from 15h on the grid and surrounded by some tricky challengers in Remy Gardner and Lorenzo Baldassarri.
