2017 Jerez Moto2 Qualifying Result: A Front Row At Record Pace

old_url: 

The qualifying session of the intermediate class served to confirm that we will run out of headlines regarding the two EG 0,0 Marc VDS teammates at some point this season. Alex Marquez went out and broke the circuit record on only his third lap, while title leader Franco Morbidelli kept as close as five hundredths of a second.

Dominique Aegerter performed admirably to secure third despite a strange slide-turned-into-a-highside midway through the session. Those early laps proved to decide the final front row distribution, all three men under the previous record set by Sam Lowes.

The final rush on new tyres didn’t bear much fruit for the top men, very few improvements to the hierarchy taking place, including Tom Luthi lifting himself into twelfth position. That being said, he was almost a second down on Marquez so not much of a win for the Swiss rider, who will have quite a challenge to defend his championship position.

Miguel Oliveira will head the second row of the grid, followed by Mattia Pasini and a much improved Pecco Bagnaia. Some other notable performances were Xavi Vierge in seventh position, six tenths down on the leader, Marcel Schrotter in ninth and Khairul Idham Pawi in sixteenth, the Malaysian breaking into the top twenty for the first time this season.

2017 Jerez MotoGP Qualifying Result: A Red And Orange Battle Flag

old_url: 

It is always hard to look past Marc Marquez every time the words ‘pole position’ are spoken but the world champion’s trademark two-stop strategy was not enough to dethrone a dominating Dani Pedrosa in Jerez.

The Honda veteran only just missed his chance of beating Marquez by three hundredths of a second on his first run, the duo running together in the last minutes and Pedrosa taking the opportunity to snatch pole by half a tenth. He will start the 3000th grand prix of the world championship with a great opportunity to get his first win of the year, considering the pole position man has won the race in Jerez for the past three years.

Marc Marquez won’t be two disappointed with second position, while Cal Crutchlow managed to get stung by a bee and, more notably, complete an all-Honda first row.

Maverick Viñales put the troubles of FP4 behind him and qualified fourth, as Q1 leader Andrea Iannone had a great afternoon to place the Suzuki in the middle of the second row. Johann Zarco continued to impress when it mattered and grabbed the last available slot on the second row, pushing Valentino Rossi to seventh position on grid.

Jorge Lorenzo showed good speed throughout practice but ultimately lost his record of starting every race in Jerez on the front row. He will have to settle for eighth spot, next to his old pal Rossi and in the middle of a Yamaha sandwich, with Jonas Folger ninth.

Jack Miller crashed late in the session and will share a fourth row with Scott Redding and fellow late faller Aleix Espargaro. Andrea Dovizioso’s feeling towards the track won’t have improved much after qualifying fourteenth, behind Danilo Petrucci.

2017 Jerez MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Puts Another Honda Top

old_url: 

In the high temperatures under the Andalusian sun, most of the grid was keen to try out the harder front tyre. Marc Marquez was the one to make the most of it, with a hard-hard combination that proved much less successful for Valentino Rossi. The reigning world champion used the hard rubber to post the fastest time of the session, as well as a good pace with high 1:39s and low 1:40s.

Two Yamahas completed the top three, but perhaps the less likely Yamahas in Jonas Folger, who led the session early on, and teammate Johann Zarco, who also showed good race pace, both within two tenths of Marquez.

Another stellar performer was Jorge Lorenzo, the Spaniard building on a good FP3 and finishing fourth while testing different tyre combinations on his Ducati. Cal Crutchlow was the next Honda, in fifth position, while Rossi improved significantly on the medium rear tyre to post a series of low 1:40s and the sixth quickest time.

Andrea Dovizioso is looking more like himself in seventh position and will be expecting to go through Q1 without an issue. Dani Pedrosa had a low-key session after dominating practice all weekend, the Spaniard opting for the same hard front tyre as his Honda colleagues, an unusual occurrence considering his slender frame.

A much improved duo completed the top ten, Pol Espargaro bringing his KTM within six tenths of the leading Honda, and Tito Rabat progressing steadily throughout the weekend to finish ahead of his teammate.

The most frustrated face of FP4 was Maverick Viñales, who couldn’t find his rhythm down in sixteenth position and with a set of 1:41s on his last run.

2017 Jerez Moto3 Qualifying Result: The Best Strategy Isn’t Always The Popular One

old_url: 

Twenty-three degrees, blue skies and a good FP3 showing motivated Jorge Martin to go all out mid-session and break the three-year-old pole record on medium tyres. Despite being on the harder rubber, the Spaniard built a gap of six tenths over his challengers. Eventually, he had to concede two tenths to second-placed man, Aron Canet, but Martin will remain favourite to break the unlikely record of no Moto3 rider winning in Jerez from pole position.

The front row will be completed by Romano Fenati, who was there or thereabouts all weekend and will look to build on his COTA success. Nicolo Bulega probably remembered that this time last year he was on pole and managed to find some of that speed to take fourth place on the grid.

An increasingly impressive Marcos Ramirez spent his fast run dicing with the championship leader and got a fifth place out of it, the second row ending with Niccolo Antonelli, who is still chasing a good result this season.

The third row will be shared by Tatsuki Suzuki, Andrea Migno and Joan Mir, whose fastest lap was cancelled for exceeding track limits. Enea Bastianini is struggling yet again down in fourteenth grid position and almost a second down on Martin, but the bigger story was John McPhee, third in the championship standings, qualifying twenty-sixth. He will be hoping to emulate Brad Binder’s performance at the circuit last year, winning after starting last on the grid.

2017 Jerez Moto2 FP3 Result: Who Else But Marquez and Morbidelli

old_url: 

We’re only four races in but you wouldn’t really expect anything else but an EG 0,0 Marc VDS bike into top position in any one session of your choice, would you? And so it was, Alex Marquez hogging another headline in Jerez. It could have been an even better headline if he had another three thousandths of a second in hand to beat the lap record. We'll have to wait for qualifying practice.

He might have hit the floor at some point yesterday, unlike any other weekend this year, but Franco Morbidelli woke up more than eager to get back to the top of timesheets. And so he did, the Italian leading for most of the session before his teammate came charging. Still, he kept within a tenth of the younger Marquez while also showing consistent pace.

Mattia Pasini was third, once again within two tenths of his fellow Italian, with Simone Corsi fourth, a further two tenths down. Miguel Oliveira was the last man into the 1:42s, with Luca Marini sixth, over half a second down on the other famous sibling at the top.

Jorge Navarro, Dominique Aegerter and Pecco Bagnaia also seem to be sneaking their way up the timesheets at every available opportunity, while Tom Luthi is still having trouble around the Spanish track, finishing down in twelfth position, seven tenths down on Marquez.

2017 Jerez MotoGP FP3 Result: No Way Past Pedrosa

old_url: 

Fluffy white clouds on a light blue background made for a much improved picture on Saturday morning and it wasn’t just photographers who were grateful. Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi were on a mission to get back into the top ten, while Dani Pedrosa aimed to make it three out of three. Challenge accepted.

The first part of the session belonged to Marc Marquez, who didn’t take long to make the jump from fourteenth in FP2 to the top of the standings in FP3 in just four laps on a medium tyre combination, taking one and a half seconds off his best Friday time. However, that only improved Dani Pedrosa’s FP2 time by seven thousandths of a second.

But it was the final ten minutes that decided the outcome, when, as usual, the tug of war on softer option rear tyres started. Rossi was the first to strike after struggling outside of the top ten until that point, his lead all too brief. Pedrosa left it late to improve on his Friday benchmark but soon reclaimed his place on the practice throne to lead by seven tenths of a second.

That gap did not last and, perhaps surprisingly, it was Jorge Lorenzo who brought it down to only two tenths – a morning of mixed fortunes for Ducati, with one man in second and his teammate in Q1 after Dovizioso finished sixteenth.

Title rivals Maverick Viñales and Marc Marquez were third and fourth, the last riders within half a second of Pedrosa. Rossi dropped into fifth, with Cal Crutchlow close behind. Jonas Folger gets one over his teammate with a seventh position to Zarco’s ninth, the Tech 3 duo separated by Scott Redding in eighth.

The top ten was completed by Jack Miller, eight tenths down on Pedrosa and dissipating the Honda domination of Friday. Although close very to tenth position, Andrea Iannone, Tito Rabat, Danilo Petrucci, Aleix Espargaro and Alvaro Bautista will have to battle Dovizioso in Q1.

2017 Jerez Moto3 FP3 Result: Martin Leads Spanish Top 4

old_url: 

The sunnier predictions for Saturday turned out to be true, although temperature was still a little low when the lightweight class hit the track. Still, the first laps already managed to improve Friday’s pace by two seconds, with the softer option rear tyre making an appearance in the final minutes to challenge those times further.

The last minute saw red sectors flashing everywhere, but it was podium regular Jorge Martin who proved to be yet again a contender by leading the third practice session with a time that was four tenths off the lap record.

While Martin was hardly a surprise, the man in second position failed to show much pace early on but Marcos Ramirez made the best out of new tyres and finished less than a tenth behind his fellow Spaniard.

Aron Canet looked to have bounced back from the disappointment of Texas to lead the timesheets in the final fifteen minutes, eventually dropping down to third position. FP2 leader Joan Mir was consistently near the top as well, making it an exclusively-Spanish top four.

The Italian trio of Fabio Di Giannantonio, Nicolo Bulega and Andrea Migno took positions five to seven within a tenth of each other, while Romano Fenati led the early part of the session only to drop back to eighth. John McPhee appeared to be struggling with a small hand injury from a crash on Friday and ended up ninth, almost a second off the leader.

2017 Jerez Moto2 FP2 Result: Marquez Top, Morbidelli In The Gravel

old_url: 

Results from the first practice session might have made for odd reading without a little context but FP2 appeared to be a more familiar sight – up until the end, that is. One thing was the same though: FP1 leader Alex Marquez took this time to find his way back to the top but a late lap earned him another headline in Jerez.

Franco Morbidelli needed no invitation to claim the top position early in the session, unusually though, the Italian also had his first crash of the season in turn nine, a hotspot for incidents in all classes. As the championship leader was returning to the pits, Marquez got as close as five hundredths of a second but failed to go top at the time.

Who did manage to do that was Fabio Quartararo, the Pons rider leading with eight minutes to go, although his glory was short-lived, Dominique Aegerter going one better as Quartararo crashed out. Aegerter kept second place at the flag, a tenth and a half behind Marquez.

Xavi Vierge posted a fantastic result for the Tech 3 project, only three tenths down on the leader and into third position in the afternoon session. Following their crashes, Quartararo dropped down to fourth and Morbidelli failed to improve on a fifth place.

Mattia Pasini will have been grateful to Tom Luthi for a tow on his fast lap, but the Italian improved further, securing sixth place all on his own. Miguel Oliveira looked promising early on but ended up seventh, four tenths down on Marquez. A pleasant surprise was Jorge Navarro, the rookie featuring near the top in the first part of the session, before dropping back to twelfth position at the end.
