2020 Misano MotoE E-Pole Result: Short Lived Glory

MotoE class riders were duelling for the first time since Jerez and it was a dramatic battle for pole position. Reigning world champion Matteo Ferrari showed good speed throughout practice and it ultimately translated into pole, although the Italian will start fourth, after the three place grid penalty received for his unceremonious exit last time out. Mattia Casadei held onto provisional pole for a long time and while he won’t get a fancy watch, he will start his home race in prime position on the grid. Xavier Simeon and Lukas Tulovic will join him on the front row, both of them around four tenths off pole.

Ferrari will open row two ahead of championship leader Dominique Aegerter and Niccolo Canepa, while Jordi Torres seemed to be on route for pole but a moment at turn 14 cost him a handful of places and eventually dropped to seventh. Eric Granado looked like he would be fronting the grid until he reached turn 15 too far into the green and his time got cancelled, leaving him last on the grid.

Last time out, at Jerez, MotoE were 3 seconds slower than Moto3 in qualifying, whereas now in Misano they are just one second slower--both tracks being very similar in terms of the lap time. Is this the result of technical progress being made in Moto E, or is it just that Misano favors the characteristics of MotoE machines over those of Moto3--and if so, how?
