2020 Europe Moto2 Qualifying Result: Grand Theft Moto

The intermediate class benefited from the only dry session of the day but it did not make their mission any easier once Sam Lowes set camp at the top of the timesheets with a seven tenths advantage. However, what looked like an unbeatable gap was quick work for a still convalescent Xavi Vierge who stole pole on his final flying lap and brought some sunshine Petronas’ way after Jake Dixon’s unfortunate injury took him out of the action for the weekend. Joe Roberts also snuck ahead of Lowes at the checkered flag but the front row trio were one step ahead of their rivals.

Remy Gardner in fourth was four tenths off the lead and closely ahead of Marco Bezzecchi and Jorge Martin, who complete the second row. A gap of eight tenths of a second left Luca Marini on the third row, a decent result after escaping Q1 and he will line up ahead of Lorenzo Baldassarri and Hector Garzo. Nicolo Bulega rounded out the top ten ahead of compatriot Fabio Di Giannantonio and a fairly impressive Andi Farid Izdihar.

Title contender Enea Bastianini has a bit of a mission on his hands starting from 15th grid position after an underwhelming session that saw him nearly four seconds off pole but the Italian continues to take his role as Marquez stand-in seriously and performed an impressive save at turn 8 late in Q2.
