2016 Qatar World Superbike Superpole Results: Lap Record Tumbles

old_url: 

The last qualifying of the year took place after the sun set over Qatar, with fifteen bikes and riders taking part in the first Superpole session, with Leon Haslam and Michael van der Mark the fastest men not to automatically qualify for the second session.

Leon Haslam ran rings around Josh Brookes to set his first lap time but Davide Giugliano and Markus Reiterberger set the top two benchmarks with the factory Ducati man recording a 1'58.231. Michael van der Mark then sliced two tenths of a second off the quickest time, unhindered by traffic. As usual, everyone popped back to their garages halfway through and as they headed back out, they jostled for position, looking for a helpful little tow.

Michael van der Mark took the flag with a 1'57.550 and Davide Giugliano, two thirds of a second slower, took the other qualifying slot, denying 2016 Superstock champ Rafaele De Rosa and 2015 British champ Josh Brookes entry into Superpole two in thirteenth and fourteenth places respectively.

Jonathan Rea was the first rider out, as he has been so many times this year, looking eager to just tie up his second title in a row, setting a 1'57.922 only to have Jordi Torres knock him down a place with a 1'57.697. Tom Sykes, in spite of tumultuous qualifying up to now, recorded a 1'57.616 on his first flying lap.

Another lap and Rea takes the top step again on race tyres as the field headed to the garage to get the sticker qualifying rubber fitted. With five minutes left, Jordi Torres, a winner here last year, was first out with the "Q" tyre and he set a 1'57.485, with lots of riders on pace to beat his time and as the clock ran out, Nicky Hayden sat at the top with only Chaz Davies and Jonathan Rea on pace to catch him and while Davies missed, Rea didn't.

Jonathan Rea took pole position ahead of Nicky Hayden and Chaz Davies with Sykes in fifth place between the Yamahas of Sylvain Guintoli and Alex Lowes.

2016 Sepang Moto2 QP Result: Seconds Anyone?

Johann Zarco appears more than ready to seize a second Moto2 championship with a blistering qualifying session Saturday that put him two full seconds clear of the runner-up. Zarco's  2'18.621 -- set after he already had a qualifying gap of one second over the number two grid position -- came on a drying track and on rain tires at the Sepang Circuit.

If Zarco wins the race Sunday, the championship is his. Franco Morbidelli -- who has excelled in the second half of the season with six podiums in nice races -- traded the top time with Zarco for much of qualifying. Then Zarco left the field behind and relegated Morbidelli to a distant second spot on the grid, matching the Italian's best qualifying of 2016. Axel Pons took third, the second time in his grand prix career he has qualified on the front row.

Jonas Folger leads the second row, just in front of Thomas Luthi (4th). Luthi, winner of two races in a row and four on the year, sits second in the championship to Zarco, 22 points adrift. Lorenzo Baldassari, at three seconds from the pole sitter, completed the third row. Xavier Simeon (7th) just clipped Mattia Pasini (8th) while Remy Gardner -- who has never started a Grand Prix inside the top 20 -- managed his best-ever qualifying in ninth. Simone Corsi completed the top 10.

Weather for tomorrow race is expected to be varied but the teams are planning for rain.

2016 Sepang MotoGP QP Result: Drying Track, Dropping Times

Andrea Dovizioso set a fast lap early and then outdid it late to grab pole position at a damp Sepang Circuit in Malaysia Saturday. Dovizioso’s 2'11.485 gave him his second pole position of the year.

Valentino Rossi saved his quickest lap for his last to jump from third into second, two-tenths of a second off the leader’s pace. Rossi's fast final lap in the wet session bumped teammate Jorge Lorenzo into third place, the final spot on the front row. World Champion Marc Marquez, who is battling a stomach flu, was was dropped into fourth late in the session as he was unable to improve on his early fast time.

But perhaps ride of the session belonged to Cal Crutchlow. The Phillip Island winner, who dominated Q1, struggled early in the second qualifying session, lapping at the bottom on the pack. Then late in Q2, he crashed with his chance to improve seemingly over. But in fast order, Crutchlow got his bike upright, out of the gravel and restarted with three minutes left. His final charging lap on a clearly battered bike jumped him into fifth.

Andrea Iannone, back on the bike after a four-race hiatus due to a back injury, took sixth after leading the timesheet early on. Aleix Espargaro, who crashed in the session, took seventh as the top Suzuki, just in front of his teammate Maverick Vinales (8th).  Alvaro Bautista continued Aprilia's strong run to take ninth with Loris Baz, who advanced from Q1, completing the top 10.

2016 Sepang MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Holds Serve

Marc Marquez put in a fast final lap to crowd out Cal Crutchlow from the top spot in a wet FP4 at the Sepang Circuit Saturday. Cal Crutchlow, who led much of the session on the damp-but-grippy track, finished second, seven-hundredths back. Maverick Vinales took third as riders worked on wet race settings for the Sunday race. 

Jorge Lorenzo, who looked more comfortable in damp conditions than he has in weeks, was fourth-fastest, just pushing Andrea Dovizioso into fifth. Jack Miller, winner in the rain in Assen this year, was sixth fastest with Loris Baz (7tth) right on his heels. Valentino Rossi, who was second early in practice, didn't improve much on his time to settle into eighth. Alvaro Bautista (9th) and Aleix Espargaro rounded out the top ten.

2016 Sepang Moto3 QP Result: A Wonder In The Wet

Brad Binder set a remarkable final lap with qualifying time expired to grab a last-gasp pole position at the Sepang Circuit Saturday in Malaysia. The world champion jumped from sixth to top spot in that final lap, dropping Jorge Navarro to second, Francesco Bagnaia to third and Lorenzo Dalla Porta (4th) to the second row.

For Dalla Porta, it still ranks as his best qualifying of the year. Gabriel Rodrigo, who crashed late in the wet session, held on for fifth. Nicolo Antonelli (6th) completed the third row.  Rookie Bo Bendsneyder, who started the session near the top, held on for seventh. Jorge Martin (8th) and Fabio Quartararo (9th) completed the third row. Aron Canet rounded out the top 10.

2016 Sepang Moto2 FP3 Result: Nakagami Takes The Top

Takaaki Nakagami didn’t let rain delays bother him Saturday at the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia. The Japanese rider grabbed the top spot, just beating out Franco Morbidelli, the fastest rider in the previous practice. Jonas Folger completed the top three.

A resurgent Axel Pons took fourth, just in front of points-leader Johann Zarco (5th). Tom Luthi, winner of two races in a row and the leading contender to Zarco, came in sixth, just eight-thousandths of a second behind his title rival. Alex Marquez, nursing injuries from the previous race, grabbed seventh. Sandro Cortese, a full seven-tenths from the leading pace, secured eighth fastest, just in front of Marcel Schrotter (9th) and an increasingly quick Hafizh Syahrin (10th).

2016 Sepang MotoGP FP3 Result: Viñales Edges Marquez And Lorenzo

old_url: 

The sun came out and dried the Sepang circuit out on Saturday morning, providing a thrilling FP3 session as the MotoGP riders battled for a spot in Q2. Practice started with damp patches on the track, but the burning tropical sun soon scorched the remaining water away.

With a good track, riders focused mainly on ensuring their spot in Q2. The lead swapped regularly, with each of the top four taking turns to lead the way. In the end, a final fast lap by Maverick Viñales secured top spot, the Suzuki rider the only man to crack into the 1'59s, managing that on two laps of his last run. Marc Marquez slotted into second spot, the Repsol Honda recovered somewhat from his bout of gastroenteritis.

The two Movistar Yamaha riders followed the Repsol Honda of Marquez. Jorge Lorenzo led the way in third, but Valentino Rossi was close behind, just six hundredths of a second slower than his teammate. Hector Barbera used a tow to get himself into fifth, but was the first of the Ducatis, just staying ahead of Andrea Iannone. Aleix Espargaro, who has briefly led the session, ended in seventh, ahead of Andrea Dovzioso on the second factory Ducati. Pol Espargaro took ninth, while Alvaro Bautista finished in tenth, and once again secured a slot in Q2. Bautista's result is yet more confirmation that the Aprilia RS-GP has made big strides in recent races, and is not far from becoming a truly competitive motorcycle.

2016 Sepang Moto3 FP3 Result: Binder Edges Kornfeil On A Drying Track

old_url: 

The Sepang circuit started the day much as it did on Friday: mainly dry, with prominent damp patches around the circuit. The track improved as the session went on, times dropping closer and closer to the lap record. The top spot changed hands several times throughout the session, until reigning champion Brad Binder asserted his authority over the class, just pipping Jakub Kornfeil to the fastest time by six thousandths of a second. 

Pecco Bagnaia ended the session in third, a strong result for the Aspar Mahindra rider, while Fabio Quartararo had a very strong session to take fourth. Joan Mir ended up in fifth, ahead of Jorge Navarro, the last of the riders within three tenths of binder, a big gap of nearly half a second back to Jorge Martin in seventh.
