2020 Emilia-Romagna Moto3 Qualifying Result: Robbing The Locals

After the opening act of MotoE, the lightweight class were the next to do battle for pole in the warm Misano afternoon and many riders had a claim at top spot. Romano Fenati, Celestino Vietti and Tony Arbolino wanted a good showing on home soil but Raul Fernandez reclaimed his title of Saturday maestro and snatched pole position in the final minute of the session. After acing Q1, Arbolino was first of the locals, eight hundredths of a second off pole, with Andrea Migno completing the front row of the grid after a late jump up the timesheets.

Albert Arenas spent most of the session outside of the top 15 but recovered enough to start the race from the top of the second row of the grid, only one tenth off pole. Vietti got pushed to fifth, with Fenati closing row two after being the early leader. Having gone through Q1, Kaito Toba achieved a top result with seventh on the grid, ahead of compatriot Tatsuki Suzuki, who dropped to eighth after he got launched off his machine at turn five quite nastily. Jaume Masia could not quite replicate his pace from Friday and closes the third row of the grid. Jeremy Alcoba joined the top ten positions and opens row four ahead of Dennis Foggia and title contender Ai Ogura.

After two crashes in the morning, the bad day at the office continued for Gabriel Rodrigo, who failed to make it out of Q1 and will start 19th, while last week’s victor, John McPhee, could not do any better than 20th on the grid.
