2021 Assen MotoE E-Pole Result: Rain On One Parade

It looked like all qualifying sessions of the day would avoid rain as MotoE riders whooshed by on a hot and windy track to battle for pole. Mattia Casadei held provisional pole early on but the lead started to quickly change hands as the favourites took their turn on track. In the end, Eric Granado scored his fourth consecutive pole position with an advantage of seven hundredths of a second over Lukas Tulovic. After being fastest in practice, Alessandro Zaccone was the unluckiest rider of the lot, as drops of rain started falling on his flying lap, but the Italian still scored his first front row start of the season.

Jordi Torres briefly led the way before dropping to fourth, while Dominique Aegerter was not really a threat for pole and had to settle for fifth, with Matteo Ferrari joining them on the second row of the grid. Fermín Aldeguer continued a solid run with seventh position and ahead of Casadei and Corentin Perolari on row three.

There will be a lot of action at the back of grid too, where Yonny Hernandez, Miquel Pons and Xavi Cardelus will be starting after track limits infringements for Hernandez and Cardelus and a penalty for exiting pitlane under a red flag for Pons.

2021 Assen Moto2 Qualifying Result: Unrivalled

Qualifying for the intermediate class got underway under a glimpse of sunshine and exceptional rookie Raul Fernandez was back in the limelight to score his tenth career pole position. The Spaniard was only briefly challenged by teammate Remy Gardner in the final couple of minutes of Q2 but promptly replied to reclaim pole by almost two tenths of a second. Gardner settled for second and it looked like Augusto Fernandez would take his first front row start of the season but a late yellow flag saw his time cancelled and his teammate, Sam Lowes, promoted to third on the grid.

Aron Canet was one of the standout performers in Q1 and comfortably climbed into fourth in Q2, while Hector Garzo escaped Q1 at the last minute, to join his compatriot on the second row of the grid, ahead of rookie Ai Ogura. Jorge Navarro kept seventh place, despite a late crash that caused trouble for a few of his rivals, in particular Augusto Fernandez, who dropped down to eighth position. The Spaniards will be joined on the third row of the grid by Lorenzo Dalla Porta. Tony Arbolino completed the top 10 ahead of fellow rookie Celestino Vietti and class veteran Tom Luthi.

Bo Bendsneyder topped Q1 and will start his home race from 13th on the grid, ahead of Marcel Schrotter and Fabio Di Giannantonio, who also got punished for yellow flag infringements. Similarly, Marco Bezzecchi dropped to 17th, in between Albert Arenas and Somkiat Chantra on row six. Q1 was particularly costly for Joe Roberts, who got demoted from the top four at the last minute and it left him 19th on the grid and with a long lap penalty to serve for crashing under yellow flags in Germany.

2021 Assen MotoGP Qualifying Result: As If Reality TV Producers Wrote The Script

Just like rain did not bother the premier class qualifying session, it looked like no one would bother Fabio Quartararo at the top of the timesheets after the Frenchman broke the all time lap record only three laps into the session, with the first 1:31 time around the track. It seemed like rivals were left to fight for the crumbs from Fabio’s lunch but Maverick Viñales didn’t make a meal of it this time and promptly improved the record by another seven hundredths of a second, with a bonus save at turn 9. Try as he did, Quartararo could not answer his teammate and Viñales went from zero back to hero in the space of a week. Although the Ducatis seemed to struggle throughout the weekend, Pecco Bagnaia showed up when he needed to and after he escaped Q1, he went on to snatch the final spot on the front row.

The Italian’s late charge demoted Takaaki Nakagami to fourth, but the LCR man was still the lead Honda rider. Johann Zarco was the chosen target for anyone needing a tow in Q1 but the Frenchman’s snuck out at the last second and eventually secured fifth on the grid. Miguel Oliveira closes the second row for KTM, while the Suzukis, although quick in practice, could not really replicate that in qualifying. Alex Rins might have hoped for better than seventh, had he not crashed at turn 8 on his final flying lap and having to start from the third row of the grid, ahead of Jack Miller, whose eighth place doesn’t really look as bad as it could have. Aleix Espargaro completes the third row of the grid, while Joan Mir won’t be too happy with tenth, sharing fourth row with a pretty anonymous duo of Pol Espargaro and Valentino Rossi.

Even though he missed out on Q2 by six hundredths of a second, Iker Lecuona scored his best qualifying of the season, with a little help from Marc Marquez, whose game plan didn’t pan out this time around and a late crash at turn 9 left him 20th on the grid. Starting from his worst qualifying position in MotoGP and still limping from his crash, the odds seem stacked against the SachsenKing but he will be hoping to follow the example that Viñales set today, not the Viñales of a week ago.

2021 Assen MotoGP FP4 Result: Quartararo Challenges Viñales

With rain keeping away from the Assen circuit despite the pessimistic forecast, the premier class got to enjoy good conditions in their chase for race pace in FP4 and it looked like a Yamaha vs Suzuki party throughout. Fabio Quartararo put the darker shade of blue at the top of the timesheets early on and did not budge, responding to any challenge by going quicker and quicker. The Frenchman was one step ahead on both the medium and hard rear tyre, but all tyre options got significant airtime from the field. There was quite a bit of soft rubber on display as well, including Maverick Viñales starting the session on used softs, but it was the mediums that brought him up to second, two tenths behind his teammate. The Spaniard was very consistent but could not quite match his teammate’s outstanding pace in the 1:32s.

Miguel Oliveira crashed the blue party to climb into third in the final handful of minutes and was closely followed by Aleix Espargaro’s Aprilia, demoting the first Suzuki of Joan Mir to fifth. Takaaki Nakagami was the lead Honda in sixth, pushing Alex Rins down to seventh, although the Spaniard had pretty impressive pace. Marc Marquez seemed to favour the soft rear and used it to show possible podium pace despite ending the session eighth, ahead of teammate Pol Espargaro. Johann Zarco rounded out the top 10, seven tenths off the lead and not particularly impressive in terms of rhythm. Amongst the rest of the Ducatis, Jack Miller seemed to struggle the most, spending the entire session outside of the top 15 and nowhere near the pace of the main contenders.

2021 Assen Moto3 Qualifying Result: A Big Result And A Big Question

Assen was back to its overcast self for the beginning of qualifying and the biggest news from the session came before the battle for pole even got underway, when it was announced that championship leader Pedro Acosta has been declared unfit to participate in the session due to upper back injuries suffered in the big crash at the end of FP3. That left the stage open for rivals to step into the limelight and no one was quicker to accept the invitation than Jeremy Alcoba, the Spaniard taking provisional pole after the first run in Q2 and then had an answer to all challengers to reclaim top spot on the second run and his maiden pole position in the class with a new all time lap record. Romano Fenati also looked like a contender for pole but had to admit defeat at the last minute and will start the race from second on the grid – a useful advantage given his double long lap penalty for an on and off track squabble with teammate Adrian Fernandez. Dennis Foggia was a fine reference for Alcoba on his way to pole and the Italian will also join him on the front row of the grid from third.

Sergio Garcia could smell an opportunity with his main championship rival on the backfoot and tried to have a go at pole but had to settle for fourth in the end, sharing the second row of the grid with Kaito Toba and Gabriel Rodrigo. The Argentinian rider started his session with a big moment at turn 15 and ended it in his teammate’s shadow but still qualified a solid sixth on the grid. Niccolò Antonelli, Darryn Binder and Q1 graduate Xavier Artigas complete row three, with Q1 leader Jaume Masia closing the top ten. The Spaniard will be joined on the fourth row by John McPhee and Tatsuki Suzuki.

Rookies Izan Guevara and Lorenzo Fellon had a good day, in which they escaped Q1 and qualified on the fifth row of the grid, ahead of Deniz Öncü. Elia Bartolini opens the sixth row ahead of a subdued Andrea Migno and possibly Acosta, if the championship leader’s medical checks allow him to rejoin the action on Sunday. Meanwhile, the BOE Owlride team had no representatives in qualifying, as both Riccardo Rossi and Stefano Nepa were undergoing further medical checks following the frightening crash that also involved Acosta at the end of FP3.

The Italian ended practice over two tenths of a second ahead of rivals Eric Granado and Dominique Aegerter. Lukas Tulovic and Jordi Torres joined them in the top five, followed by Matteo Ferrari and the persistently impressive rookie Fermín Aldeguer, who was half a second slower than the leader. Yonny Hernandez, Hikari Okubo and Miquel Pons completed the top 10 positions.

2021 Assen Moto2 FP3 Result: Raul Fernandez Resumes Control

In typical Moto2 fashion, riders were keen to attack the timesheets early on but could not quite touch Augusto Fernandez’s Friday benchmark until Raul Fernandez dethroned him with 25 minutes left of the session. Despite a small tumble at turn three soon after, the rookie rejoined the action and kept top spot to the end of the session. After the Sky Racing team tinkered a bit with his machine, Marco Bezzecchi made a late jump to second, two tenths off the leader and another tenth ahead of Jorge Navarro. Somkiat Chantra also bided his time to join the top four of the session, with a consistent Sam Lowes completing the top five.

Championship leader Remy Gardner in sixth was under four tenths of a second from the leader and very closely followed by Ai Ogura, the rookie joining the Q2 worthy positions in the closing stages of the session. Augusto Fernandez was eighth in the session and was the only rider not to improve his time from Friday, but that time was good enough for third on the combined timesheets. Celestino Vietti finally gets a taste of Q2, after following compatriot Bezzecchi around on a hot lap and helping himself to ninth place in FP3.

Fellow rookie Tony Arbolino completed the top 10, while the remaining top 14 positions were secured by Fabio Di Giannantonio, Lorenzo Dalla Porta, Marcel Schrotter and Tom Luthi. Home favourite Bo Bendsneyder missed by one hundredth of a second and was only half a second slower than the leader. He will be joined in Q1 by the likes of the Petronas duo of Xavi Vierge and Jake Dixon, FP2 leader Hector Garzo and a subdued Aron Canet.
