2020 Andalucia Moto3 Qualifying Result: The New Saturday Routine

One week has passed since the last time the lightweight class duelled for a prime starting position at the same venue, in the same conditions and, as it turns out, for the same result. Tatsuki Suzuki proved for a third consecutive time that he is the fastest man when it matters and grabbed his third pole position in three races. Japan dominates the front row with Ai Ogura securing second position after sitting in provisional pole early on, while Gabriel Rodrigo completes the line-up, three tenths of a second off pole.

Raul Fernandez kept close and will open row two ahead of Tony Arbolino and championship leader Albert Arenas, the trio half a second slower than the poleman. Jeremy Alcoba is determined to make us forget that he’s a rookie and does so from seventh grid position, sharing the third row with a somewhat underwhelming John McPhee and Celestino Vietti. Jaume Masia completes the top ten, ahead of Q1 escapee Carlos Tatay and with Kaito Toba completing row four.

Filip Salac worked wonders to escape Q1 after an FP3 crash and qualify 15th, while Andrea Migno threw it all away with a crash on the final lap leaving him in 18th grid spot. The big losers of Q1 were Niccolo Antonelli, whose overconfidence dropped him to 20th place, and Darryn Binder, who could not do any better than 25th.
