2020 Barcelona Moto3 Qualifying Result: It’s A Celebration

Montmelo warmed up nicely ahead of the first qualifying session of the day but things didn’t get truly hot until the final couple minutes of Q2, when red sectors fired up the timesheets and threatened the lap record. The battle came down to Fernandez vs Arbolino and while the Italian ended up celebrating his new Moto2 contract with a fine pole position and new lap record, the Spaniard crashed out at the final turn. Despite the fast high side, Fernandez walked away and will start the race from the middle of the front row, setting the exact same laptime as Gabriel Rodrigo in third.

Having just about snuck out of Q1, Albert Arenas looks set to defend his championship lead from the second row but with a serious challenge from Jaume Masia and fellow Q1 participant Niccolo Antonelli. Filip Salac opens row three ahead of Kaito Toba and Darryn Binder – the trio’s fastest times a full second slower than pole. Sergio Garcia rounded out the top ten and will be joined on the fourth row by Andrea Migno and John McPhee, after the Scotsman escaped Q1. One man missing in Q2 action was Ai Ogura, the title contender struggling to do any better than 24th of the grid and with a lot of work to do on Sunday morning.
