2021 Estoril World Supersport Superpole Result: A Familiar Name On Top

World Supersport Superpole qualifying was a windy twenty minute session. Nikki Tuuli would start race one from the pit lane due to his incident last weekend; his qualifying would be for grid position for Sunday's race.

Luca Bernardi opened the session with a 1'40.664, quicker than Jules Cluzel and Dominique Aegerter on the first timed lap. His time was beaten a lap later by Federico Caricasulo who set another fastest lap, a 1'40.192, on his third timed lap. Jules Cluzel and Steven Odendaal were second and third as most riders pitted in for a break, but Philipp Oettl stayed out for one more lap and sneaked in a second place, pushing Cluzel down a spot.

After a brief break, Federico Caricasulo put in a 1'39.973, having avoided traffic before setting up a clean run. At the flag, he was three thousandths of a second off his best time, and Steven Odendaal was the only rider on a lap that might challenge him. 

Steven Odendaal lost out in the last sector, but still managed to get himself onto the front row, third placed alongside Federico Caricasulo and Philipp Oettl. Jules Cluzel, Dominique Aegerter and Raffaele de Rosa will start from the second row. Nikki Tuuli will start race two from seventh, but Hannes Soomer will sit on his grid spot in race one, ahead of Luca Bernardi.
