2022 Aragon Moto2 Qualifying Result: Home Particularly Sweet Home

Somewhat uncharacteristically for the intermediate class, the fight for pole went almost all the way to the chequered flag and added to a great weekend for Augusto Fernandez. It was good news all around for the Spaniard, who added a pole position on home soil to his championship lead and brand new MotoGP contract. With Fernandez posting the only 1:51 time of the weekend, his advantage over second position was over a tenth of a second, while teammates Albert Arenas and Jake Dixon joined him onto the front row.

The quickest man in practice, Alonso Lopez, made some late progress to climb into fourth, opening an all-Spanish second row from Aron Canet and Pedro Acosta. Tony Arbolino in seventh position was four tenths off pole, while Ai Ogura escaped Q1 and climbed into eighth position, ahead of teammate Somkiat Chantra. Joe Roberts rounded out the top 10 in qualifying, sharing fourth row with Fermín Aldeguer and Filip Salac.

Q1 headliner Cameron Beaubier will start at the back of fifth row, behind Jorge Navarro and Manuel Gonzalez, while Celestino Vietti had a tricky afternoon, escaping Q1 by the skin of his teeth and then taking an early tumble at the first corner in Q2. Although he was able to rejoin the action and improve his time, the Italian was only 17th, sharing sixth row with Bo Bendsneyder and Alessandro Zaccone.
